    Industry Condemns Video of Drone’s Close Encounter with Frontier Aircraft

    You're all missing a vital point, one which I saw from the pointy end of a KC-135 for 20 years. Stuff hits the jet wherever it will hit, and not just the engines are critical. Try the cockpit. Try the radome. Imagine those little motors nailing the windshield glass at over 220 kts. Might...

    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    Ryzen Owners Thread

    Been having quite a bit of "fun" (for given values of enjoyment) with a MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon. Newegg failed to kick a preorder out the door, the local MicroCenter finally showed stock on Wednesday, so I drove to Baltimore to finish gathering build parts. Aside from the usual first start...

    relic's back

    I've donated 60 million points to another team, convince me why I should return to the Fold. Yes, I know, paltry sums, but one machine and a GPU can do a tidy bit of work. That is, when the freakin' GPU can get an assignment. :mad: Relic is back? I thought I heard "D" in the aether. :p

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Mine is still functional, going on it's eighth year of daily use, but wear is showing on the screen with patchy dark areas, and image retention issues are definitely distracting. All in all, I've gotten more than my money's worth from the monitor, so this is one bandwagon I don't regret climbing...

    Who's left crunching f@h?

    Still stumping along, just swapped teams for awhile when the [H] was the 600lb GO-rilla of F@H. Recently started Folding with a R9 280X 6GB GPU, that's been " ... a touch of hangover" to quote G.W. McLintock. My work with ASH

    Nahh, to properly kill a PSU while Folding required dual MP 1900s on a Tyan S2460. Burned the 20-pin connector clean out of one. Sorry to say, the last of those duallies lies in the basement, unpowered, mostly because I don't need a space heater at the moment. :)

    It's *ALWAYS* Relic's fault! And actually, I'm the new member, of the [H]ard Mowed Over club. 7m points for 19WU is just utterly sick. Welcome back, ChelseaOilman!

    [H]ardMowedOver, new member

    Indeed. That pass came out of nowhere! :eek: I've got other fires to put out right now, but I'll keep throwing my points up as long as I can keep the lights on. Any other Old Ones about to rise from their slumber? :D

    Bulldozer PPD

    The log I gave earlier is for kernel 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64, I rather doubt it has the BD caching patch. Will check the notes and see how to apply it.

    Bulldozer PPD

    Don't have the code snippets seen with the OP, so this link is posted vs. dumping a wall of text in here. The machine is a FX-8120 / Zalman CNPS9500 copper, Asus Sabertooth 990FX and 16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600. The AMD-supplied cooler butts right against the slot 0 RAM with barely 1/8"...

    SSDs and Digital Forensics

    New PC, the desktop is grainy, help

    I just went through this eyeball shredding experience with a 8800GTS and a Samsung B2430HD, and the solution couldn't be any less intuitive from the PC troubleshooting side. Rename the source on the HDTV. :eek: Seriously. The Samsung HDTVs recalibrate the input based on what the source...

    The Totally Awesome Directron Drawing!

    I've been running AMD processors since the days of the 486DX-40. From there, through the days of the K5, Slot A, Socket A, dually MPs and onward to the Phenom II I post this with, never looked back. I root for the underdog, I vote with my wallet, and AMD has had that vote since 1995. Long...

    Old [H] Warrior, new tips needed

    Been doing a bit more reading in the Ubuntu setup thread, saw the "ext4 no-no" and thought "Aw %^&$, I do NOT want to reload this machine!", since it is running a Cacti status monitor app. Further in, I see what appears to be the reason why; the core "takes 40 minutes to write out to the drive...

    Roger, thanks for clearing that up. Gods and deities, sooooo tempting to get into the horsepower race again. :) Edit: Looks like the 10-wu gate has been passed, the 12pm update showed 2 wu credited with 4525 points. The next was 69 pts, apparently from the single-core P4 (no HT) SNMP...

    Old [H] Warrior, new tips needed

    "Hiya!" back at Xilicon, DwDawg, been waay too long fellows... The Opty / 8800GT combo can't happen because they are different owners. The Opty station is company property, while the Phenoms are personal gear. The machine is based on an Asus M2N-LR motherboard, and pretty much stands idle for...

    Old [H] Warrior, new tips needed

    So, the V7 Beta client for the two Phenoms, skip the 6870 and just go for SMP, while tweaking the idling Opteron with the old-style 6.23 uniproc client. Sounds like a good jumping-off point. :D I'd love to get my hands on the Opteron quad-core 2-CPU Socket F rig that hosts our backup email...

    A little moar D for the [H]orde

    Done. :) I thought I'd stick to this thread and not clutter the forum, but in retrospect Zero and yourself are right. The Opty is a single AM2, can't remember the code at the moment. Back to the previous discussion...

    A little moar D for the [H]orde

    Hi, my name is Rip Van Winkle, and I used to fold! :( Dang, a lot has changed since I let the garden plot go to weeds. FLECOM was the top dog, OCAU had been vanquished, and I held the same rank as our team number. The call went up on the [H], I didn't pay much attention. Hell, we were the...

    Interesting. I tried this today with a known current flash and a Opteron 1352 "Barcelona", would not boot. Took the same Opty and put it in a Tyan S2925G2NR, fired right up. The M2N-LR has been running with a Opteron 1216, so I know it works. Nice price on the M2N, might try for another...

    Westinghouse LVM-37W3SE 37" 1080p Monitor $585 Free Ship

    The phrase, "Duuuuude!", was written especially for this monitor. :D Now in it's second year, the Intarweb in text, pictures and the occasional YouTube video in Panavision(tm) on my desk. It gets the "Cold, Dead Hands" award for stuff you'll pry from my grasp when I'm good and ready to let go.

    Which PSU best for my situation...
