    Usenetserver.com $20/year includes VPN

    I've been on the $95/yr plan for a quite a while, just opened up a new account to get in on this deal. Using 60 connections pulls in a solid 100-104MB/sec with sabnzbd and gigabit fios. This is the link, although it may not be at the right rate, may need the sd link. First try...

    GF dropped phone, need replacement for LG G3

    Hello, My girlfriend dropped her old LG G3 right on the corner and the case didn't stop it from cracking the screen and making about 95% of the screen unresponsive to touch, so it's effectively dead. As she was still managing with a G3 and I'm using my G4, we don't need the latest and greatest...

    Need to vent my home theater

    Hello everyone, I finished up my theater in July, and occasionally I had an issue with it getting pretty warm in there. I didn't do anything particular with regard to soundproofing, so of course I also forgot to consider ventilation. During the winter it wasn't an issue, at most needed a...

    Hello everyone, My trusty Yate Loons (D12SM-12) have all started to make noise (clicking or buzzing) after 9 years in service. I've tried doing some searching and a lot of information is from 5+ years ago or contains contradictory results. I'm looking for some suggestions, and I have two...

    Need to adjust voltage on my old MCP355 pumps

    Hello everyone, After the fun I had in my last thread, I decided to reuse a lot of my existing water cooling gear. The problem I am having is the first pump has a grinding/humming type noise that is only present when both pumps are running. If I unplug one or the other, the one left running is...

    Anything worth mining on my 1080 ti about 10 hours a day?

    Hello, I recently got my new work & gaming rig set up, and during work my gpu is mostly idle. A lot of information I find is out of date so I wonder if anyone has a suggestion for an easy to set up miner for a part time 1080 ti? My electrical costs are 19 cents per KWh, so that may mean this...

    Hi everyone! I've tried digging through information here and elsewhere, and I actually got to play with one of these at my hour away Microcenter. I think this is what I want!

    LG G4 bootlooping outside warranty, need quick replacement

    Hello everyone, So this morning I wake up to my G4 turned off, well it's boot looping so I'm screwed. Bought in 2015, although I'm contacting LG I am expecting they will tell me to pound sand. I used GPS for over an hour yesterday so that probably did it. Anyway I need a suggestion on a phone...

    Best SATA 1TB SSD options for older work/gaming machine?

    Hi everyone, My current ssd is too constrained on space now, and I'm thinking of handing mine down to my girlfriend's pc so we both get an upgrade. My current motherboard doesn't have any better options such as M.2 so it has to be SATA. My research has led me to the Sandisk Extreme PRO 960 GB...

    Help me allow hardocp & hardforum in Privoxy

    Throwing in the towel.

    I'll try to keep this short. I've taken my 260s offline until nvidia figures out a proper driver or gpu3 fixes these issues. On 181.22, I can fold flawlessly, however I like to use my computer and now I NEED newer drivers just to run games. Now I get display driver crashes no matter what...

    gtx 260 4200ppd, project P5768?

    I can't understand what I'm seeing. Why such low ppd on this project (specifically R3, C40, G2145)? My other 260 is chugging along on a P5771 with 8970ppd. Both have the same clocks, and are water cooled so temps are not an issue(47c and 45c). I used gpuz to verify the clocks. Is this just a...

    What nvidia driver for folding AND gaming?

    To start off I've had lots of trouble finding the right driver to play nice with vista, and every time I try to change I get problems. I found 181.22 a while back, and it has been the only rock solid trouble free driver I've had. I've tried many since then, in an effort to keep up with games or...

    OS reinstall, now gpu client makes desktop sluggish?

    Hi everyone, My vista imploded and I have since reloaded and have noticed now that my gpu client that my primary display is on will make window dragging and general use choppy or laggy, before it never did this. What have I done/forgot to do that's causing this problem? Any help would be...

    My ppd are steadily declining...just new protiens?

    Hi everyone, I've noticed a significant hit to my ppd in the last two weeks. The only change to my folding was on the 24th I gave the 9600gso to its new home, but there have been problems and that computer is still not set up. That would account for a small dip. Since then it has dropped...

    Best setup for my smp + gpu folding

    Hi everyone, got my gpu folding going strong now, and I'd like to add my q6600 and athlon x2 to the mix. I had tried just running the smp client on my main rig with the gpu clients folding, but found that it dragged them down heavily and actually resulted in a lower overall ppd, so as of now I...

    How's my ppd look?

    Just hit 500k...

    Hi everyone, Just checking in as I apparently hit this little milestone a few days ago. Since I got my new system with two gtx 260s up I've really ramped up production. Once I get my box with the 8800gs in it back online, I'll be doing 18k-20k ppd! At that rate I'll hit 1 million by...
