 I'm not worried "If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all", last time I won some thing it was KP duty in the Army for decking an upstart seargent for grabbing a female soldiers gazongas.  An really that wasn't a win I earned that KP.  Now the prize I got from from the woman that's another matter. Cool

 

How you and those mutant fingers doin Kam? 

 

That luck quote rings so true =P. I've been doing pretty good man, can't complain. Just finished my cardio and took a shower, meanwhile fixing a rig next to me that's been abused =P. Running diagnostics and then gotta re-install the OS and wipe the drives. The usual basically =P. What about you man? ^_^..Life treatin' you well?

Pretty decent, got a wireless network to make behave, a custom rig to trouble shoot Yahoo messanger on (he can't talk with his conquests reliably), two sets of customers coming to look at the curent high end offerings.  Sold the e8400 I had stashed for a nice profit, can't find another for a while until they catch up with demand.  

 

Installed tubing coils on my water rig, gotta wrestle 3 more Yate Loons on the rad with the 3 existing, going push pull.  That's after Half Life Orange box updates.  Pretty light day, storms here slow things down, be lucky if I don't have to reschedule the buyers.

 

Got a HP Jornada and two PDA to put up for sale, and thinking about listing an Antec Soho server file casing I have but haven't used.  In the mean time it's almost 7am and I'm on the second pot of coffee.  Probably just need to hook it up IV drip.

If it is going to be posted at night, I'll be asleep. Woke up at 11pm today...slept at around 3:30 pm. I'm hoping it'll be posted before I go to sleep within the next few hours (god..I gotta fix my sleeping schedule, I wake up when everyone goes to sleep..lol). If not though, I'll have to run to my computer as soon as I wake up to see the results...=P.

Now I think it's time for you to go outside.....haha j/k j/k

congrats buddy! Be sure to toss some pics up on here when she arrives

Davo, Marco -- I almost think this should make the news page....it WAS after all quite a giveaway. You guys rock!

OH!! I almost forgot, the flash drive I got from the last giveaway seems to be "malfunctioning" -- is there any kind of warranty or anything on it? It basically says its in read-only mode but I seem to see no switches/levers/buttons/etc...that would cause it to be in such a state? (Sorry for going off-topic)

=D Thanks so much man! I'm so ecstatic right now...I know I won't be able to sleep =P. I'm pretty much gonna have it folding constantly for hothardware once I get the beauty in my hands...When I'm not gaming/working that is Wink...Heck, what am I talking about...it has 8 cores..I can just set cpu affinities =P. I was scavenging through a box filled with old wires and came across a 24 to 20 pin adapter right now! =P. But I'm still planning to give the PSU away if someone needs the complete rig..But if not I might not need that 20 pin psu if someone wants the psu I currently have in this rig.. I could just use the adapter for my old Dual AMD MP 1800+ rig that's sitting in the closet, it may not be that powerful, but I'll still be able to pull up some wu's every now and then for hothardware ^_^.

Congrats on the Win Kamrooz, you totally deserv it. BTW I want to see some benchies. Whenever you get it and whenever you have some time I want to see how well it performs even though I've seen some benchies about it here. :) The processors will be good for you for about 4 years. :) I don't know about the video cards, they will probably not keep up with the new games in the next year or so but still I would say in 2-3 years it will still be a kickass computer. :)

Hey, Pam, remember when I said this car was death proof? Well, that wasn't a lie. This car is 100% death proof. Only to get the benefit of it, honey, you REALLY need to be sitting in my seat.
