>> I suppose I deserved this...
Went to crank my Athlon up - I know its good for 1.5GHz, just wasnt sure if the cheap power supply I'm using could handle it. 1.4GHz, all good. 1.46, seemed to be okay. Tried for 1.5GHz. Worked fine for 5 minutes, then POOF. Just turned off.

To make a long story short, RIP one cheap 300W power supply. Too late to buy a new one tonight, so I'll have to wait till tomorrow. In the mean time, only extra I had to stick in was an even CHEAPER 250W, which I'm now using, forcing me to run the thing at only 1.2GHz until I can get a new one.

So I'm going to be running a few hundred MHz slower than usual tonight. Very well, Dave, my arch-nemesis, you win this round... ;)

Yeah yeah, lay it on me. Since I deserve this, I'm willing to let it slide. :) Ironic thing is, that's the first piece of advice I always give people building Athlon systems! Especially 1GHz ones they plan to overclock to 1.5GHz. ALWAYS use a good power supply!

What is this? Some perverse form of poetic justice? :) Rest assured, I'll be replacing it with a *decent* one tomorrow.

Hey Dan,
I hope you can help with with a question?
As you must live close to me if your attending UofW and I live in Etobicoke but work in ayr, were do you go to buy good equipment. Like brand name stuff? You said you were going to pick up a good poewr supply, where is it that you go? All the places i go are to busy trying to pawn off all there generic crap. Telling me that i don't need the good stuff, and that there el cheapo stuff works just as good .
This would be a big help to me if you could fill me in.

Thanks in advance.
Robin

Would an Antec 400w work? /me runs out an tries to o/c his 1.4 to 2.5

Not to get back on topic (run, run away!), is there any way to archive stats on genome numbers? I would think since EM2 can do it one at a time, that something like it could just remember those numbers. You could just do the numbers somewhere else (like exel, ick...) as long as you have them. Thoughts?

I'm collecting the team stats from the Statsman site and archiving them in Excel, plotting a graph to keep an eye on the gap between us and ea.com.

I'm afraid that the best I can say is that their rate of accelleration away from us has slowed slightly.

You'll be pleased to know I just picked up a nice Sparke supply on my way home, and it's purring along happily now. :)

Ooohh, cannoliboy, you sneaky man, you ...

Okay, I'm up for a challenge I'm guessing you got some people interested in running Genome for you, or took some money out of your savings and bought a few extra machines. But that's cool, you're now #1 on my list, Rhort and Sverre are next.

Best regards,

No, you're right Rhort, it's not updating too well. Hasn't really been much good since Christmas. Seems only to be the servers hosting the stats, the uploads still seem to go up and register fine once an update finally happens, although I have to admit I tend to hold off until the updates are working properly. Probably related to the problem Rob listed further up in this thread.

M..u..s..t...g..o...f..a..s..t..e..r...

Okay got the Hyper Threading working on the Xeons, now doing two Genome clients on each CPU, which is funny cause XP already indicated I had four CPUs instead of two.

Cheers,
