    Excel 2013: the picture is too large and will be truncated - very annoying error

    I'll be damned, but I found a solution (that works for me). When researching this issue, the general consensus talked about any '3rd party programs' that somehow hook into the clipboard. In my situation, it was TeamViewer, which syncs the clipboard between the local host and the remote session...

    Excel 2013: the picture is too large and will be truncated - very annoying error

    Tried googling this issue, as I'm also experiencing this issue with a spreadsheet on office 2013. Ironically, this thread is one of the results. ;) If I find anything worth mentioning I'll post a reply here.

    Got me thinking...I checked the 'bay just now, cheapest new is $900, with one used @ $800. Looked at previous auctions, all listed as new (except for one) went for $900 and up. Adjusting my price accordingly. Thanks again sc0tty8! :D

    SR-2 Optimization Thread

    Interesting question. Possibly; you could use some of the CPU headers on one PSU, and some on another, using the paperclip trick to keep one of the PSUs on. Would you need to? I doubt it...the HX620 should suffice, IMHO. Have fun on your OC!

    Linux versus Windows - bigadv folding results

    So, the server (LTS) version didn't work out after all. Kept getting "cpu stuck for 61 seconds" error on each processor thread. Uninstalled the kraken, and it worked fine. /sigh I'm installing the desktop version (10.10 x64) right now using the Network/Minimal CD link, so I can go command line...

    SR-2 Optimization Thread

    Wh00t, that sounds awesome. Too bad my OC isn't stable. (It's been coughing on WUs the past ~12hrs.) I always leave my C-states disabled, so I'll go and correct that now. Question for you wonderful folks: For an x5670, would you suggest skipping the turbo and aim for a higher bclk = higher mem...

    Speaking of updates, I should receive the last item (SurgeX SA1810) necessary for powering on the 3rd and 4th SR-2 so that I can re-test tears wrapper. Sorry for the delay, g/f's b-day and power circuit related issues. (Edit: Each SR-2 is eating ~580watts/~5amps, so I ran into circuit breaker...

    Major new folder around

    If it's for a computing cluster, then HT is (usually) turned off for accurate reporting to the head node, which would account for the -smp 12. Perhaps he could turn on HT on all the blades via a script or something, while folding, and then turn it back off afterward. Plus, while it's good for...

    Hey :) More details here on tears page, but I haven't finished the OC on SR-2 #3 to provide him any logs as of yet. The install was successful; I used your AWESOME install guide + ran through tears instructions after enabling NUMA. The TPF was reporting ~5hrs via HFM, even after I left it...

    While I didn't have much luck with my shortly-lived test of tear's Kraken wrapper, I do have chips (x5670s) that, I think, can benefit from the Uncore adjustment. I'm putting SR-2 #3 of 4 together right now, and will try the A50 for the Uncore adjustment + will re-try the Kraken wrapper. More...

    Linux versus Windows - bigadv folding results

    Depends on what system/BIOS you're using. For the SR-2, it's NUMA which can be found under Power Mgmt --> ACPI Config --> Advanced ACPI Config --> NUMA Support. Edit: 10e beat me to the punch! ;)
