... you strongly believe that governments should be composed only by Prime ministers.

... you are very suspicious of the Prime Meridian; you avoid television during prime time; you eat no steak graded better than USDA choice.

You own a computer faster than 3.2 GHZ.

QuintLeo 2003-11-02 23:15

You own a farm of computers with an aggrigate total clock speed of over 5 Ghz.

Yep. That's me. Guilty as charged. :smile:

meh ... step aside sonny. Where I come from my measly 10 GHz makes me a punk ... at least my home box average is greater than 2 GHz ...

Scary to think that I have 1333 MHz tbirds gathering dust ... way too slow to run, gasp at the thought of firing up the PIII 750 :rant:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?? THOSE TBIRDS AND P3s COULD BE RUNNING TFs!!! :rant:

I still have a K6-II 500 running TFs! :shock:

Uncwilly 2003-11-03 21:26

really. I would take them machines and slave them away. I could turn off the heater at my place....

They could help me get into the top 1000 on LL and Factoring...

Ok, being the creator of the first "you are a DC Freak When..." Thread (which was, to the best of my knowledge, the first)I figured I would add a reason here too:

I got a K6-II 533 running to post on the internet and listen to CD's on. Just so that my main computers do not get cycles wasted on real things. Not long after I put Prime95 on it (TCC_mgicfn02, with Team Prime Rib). I am now posting from my P120 laptop, to not waste cycles on it.....

Now I needt o get a new computer .:surrender

Dude - I've got over 1 Ghz (actual clock, NOT PR-rating) of K5's ALONE - those have all been doing Trial Factoring. I don't even want to THINK about how long a 33M would take on one of those boxes, even if they had enough RAM to LL with at all....

(figures quickly) Hmmm, not sure if I have 10 Ghz total aggrigate, though - got too many machines down right now, due to the move. I do have over 5 Ghz in Athlons, but that's only 3 machines (all TBred XP1800s at 1.8Ghz or better each).

Thunderbird 1.33s should be fine for LL work - I wouldn't waste them on TFing. Especially if you don't concentrate on 33M+ work - they SHOULD do a LL or DC about every 5-6 weeks, possibly a little longer in the current 20ishM range....

...if you underclocked an unstable Athlon, so you could at least make it do some work.
