Let me know if an Abit NF7-s and mobile Athlon would be of interest. :smile:

Thanks for the offer! I have decided to buy the same hardware from EBay, apparently it is a requirement to reactivating Windoze. I think its the least expensive option.

I was refering to the television mini-series now available on DVD. An engineer/technician says that line.

Warning from ewmayer Post 20 mathematical anecdotes.

Mally, if you insist on continuing to spout nonsense and irrelevant piffle in reply to EVERY SINGLE NEW POST in this and other threads, your immoderation is going to fall victim to the kind of board moderation which the edit-ees tend to decry as "heavy handed" and which we try to avoid around here in the interest of open discourse. Your posting habits are more and more resembling those of certain folks who wound up in exile.

Consider this fair warning.
Un quote.

Several of my borged machines are now permanently offline. The building that that they were in has burned to the ground. The facility was over-run by a fire that was being driven by 50+ mph winds.

I personally have seen winds at that facility (my old work site and where I was going to be moved to in ~2-3 months) that were off the charts (flat lined off scale above).


This will negatively impact my standings on the V5 server rankings.

Further update, the local firehouse is within the evacuation area. Thousands (maybe 10's of) have been evacuated.

The attached is a local weather station. The winds are currently gusty and variable.

Ouch. :sad:

Does this have anything to do with the recent California wildfires?

[quote=ixfd64;145434]Does this have anything to do with the recent California wildfires?[/quote]Yes. The Santa Ana season preceding the autumn return of rains is often a tense time in southern California. As I recall, the conditions then tend to set people on edge as well as dry out the tinder, and L.A. basin smog can be at its worst that time of year when there isn't enough wind to blow it out to sea.

I lost a mile race (1.609 kilometers) to a 10 year old two weeks ago:

Note to self: Running a fast mile requires speed. Maybe not sprint speed, but jogging half an hour every other day and walking from one class to the next won't cut it.

Note to anyone who cares: I was born in 1988, so I was double his age at the time of the race.

I witnessed my first mugging today.

It was on my street, 3 blocks south of where I live.

That's too bad. Was there anything you could do about it?
