What if I renamed all of them to Zeus1, Zeus2 etc, would that help? I could have lots of little Zeus's running. Oh and I am now WINNING!!!


Nope. ;-)

I am back to WINNING again!!!


No matter computer names, my only goal is to Win right now. And I do! ;-))


I got my pc up and running that has been off for a few days due to cpu overheating issues, I replaced the cpu fan and it seems to be okay now. I am thinking of renaming it from Boinc5 to Zeus!!! Because Zeus is King of all the Gods and WINS at everything!!


Pøhh! ;-D

It wouldnt help you to beat the moon ;-))

I win.

You are correct, throwing them into the sea or even the trash is NOT a good idea. Lately I have been giving or cheaply selling my old parts, but I have WAAAY too many old things that people no longer want. Also shipping to people like you is just waaay too expensive so that is not always an option either. I was going to ship a motherboard to guy near you and it was over 100 bucks just for shipping, that is no longer FREE!! I live in the US, so anywhere 'overseas' is not a good thing for me.

As for the "rubbish collection place' and "proper English", I am guessing you are referring to a 'landfill', which is where all the trash trucks take the household trash to be piled up and then covered with AT LEAST 15 feet, 5 meters, of clean dirt and made into golf courses, playgrounds or whatever. They also use the 'strip' coal mines for 'landfills' too, that way when all the coal is gone they can rebuild the mountains they striped away to get at the coal. Those they just replant with grass and trees and let return to Mother Natures design. The coal mines can also be filled with the leftovers from the sewage treatment plants before they return the water to the rivers, in most cases the water going back into the river is cleaner then the river itself! They put the waste stuff out to dry, recapturing any runoff and reprocessing it, and then truck the dried stuff to the strip mines. But again they have to put a minimum of 15 feet, 5 meters, of clean dirt on top before regular people can walk on the finished surface.

So what do you name your pc's? In the beginning I name my Seti1, Seti2 etc but when Boinc came around I switched to the Boinc naming system. I do use a couple other names, like my main pc is called 'mikes', yes my name really is mike and my nickname at my old work was 'mikey', making it easy all around. My laptop is called 'familyroom' because that is where it is located, in my family room.

Oh and I am now WINNING!!!


Lets see.... ;-) DreamWeaver, Vesta, and NewMoon is the three I have now.

Vesta is a goddess, the virgin goddess of the hearth, home, and family in Roman religion. There is this little poem .. rather
a pray to Vesta. Many years ago I put it into a little picture frame, and placed it in one of the rooms here in the house.. ;-) It goes like this:

Come, Vesta, settle down
in this beautiful home.
Come with warmth of friendship
Bring your wiseness,
Your power and glowth
In service for the Good.
Always burn in my soul.
You are welcome here.
I`ll remember you.

I have no idea where it really comes from.. but its probably a part
of some old writings - maybe from the Aeneid of Virgil. ;-)

To bring Vesta into my home is by no doubt a good thing. ;-D

DreamWeaver doesnt need much explaining.. ehh? ;-) Oh, I know, its also
the name of a web development tool - but the word itself.. Drømmevev in Norwegian,
should tell its about weaving / including our dreams into our lives. ;-)

New Moon - well.. is the first phase of the Moon, when it lies closest to the Sun in the sky as seen from the Earth. It is new beginnings.. ;-)

hehe.. Beat that! I win! ;-)))

Now see that wasn't so hard was it? I too have a few pc's crunching, mostly desktops that I have built or rebuilt a few times, I buy new cpu's, motherboards and ram and then reuse everything else. I have been 'fixing' pc's for a LONG time so I have a basement full of 'stuff'. I have 15 pc's on line right now, with another half dozen or so that could be online with about half an hour work on each. The non working ones do not have pci-e slots so would just be dual core cpu crunchers and no really worth the trouble for me. Most of my crunchers are quad or 6 core machines with a couple dual core ones still running just because they haven't been replaced yet, even my laptop is an i7 8 core machine. Most of the desktops have a gpu that also crunchers in them, one even has two gpu's in it. My electric bill is also partly what keeps the other 6+ off line too, I am paying more then double what my neighbors pay, and we have similar households. I have tried to not go too far about the 600 dollar a month range, just for electricity, for a while now. My house is all electric and I live in a neighborhood of almost 3500 homes, so no windmills for me either.

As far as WINNING goes, I do believe I am the one doing that right now!!

ps I am not very creative in my machine names, I use Boinc1, Boinc2, etc for most of them.


;-) You are right... thats not very creative ;-D but good enough. Ive yet to
hear about computers that complaint about their names. ;-) I did not tell
the names on mine though, since that wasnt part of the question. hehe

Oh... I also have some computer parts laying around.. but the only reason is that
its not that easy to get rid of.. Either I have to put it in a car that I dont
have anymore, and drive to the mainland - including a ferry trip of an hour - or I have
to do what we should Not do.. throw them out of my window and into the sea. hehe
Therefore I have to collect it, to much annoyance for myself mainly, and then hope
that one day I`ll get a hitch hike with someone else to that rubbish collection
place ;-p (Its probably called something else in proper English) ;-D

I guess I`m lucky. I have counted out what I use of electricity: Kwh / year / m2 - as is the only way to compear it with others use.. And even if Im a full time
cruncher, I use less than many others in Norway. ;-o (as is probably much
more than in many other countries) ;-p It mainly tells I`m living in a good
house. Also, I obviously used my head correctly when that house should be buildt - even if my two brain cells normally dont co-operate very well. ;-)

As for the winning; Yes, I do.

Post:

It's good to see you back!! Yes they are still unanswered and yes they are still valid? But no you are not winning anymore.


;-)) thanx.. I`m running MW during the ongoing team challenge, as luckily
gives me enough speed to post. hehe I only run my purple toaster though, so I`m not fighting in the top ;-9 ;-D


ehrmm... questions.. ; I do live in the yellow house, up on a... I wouldnt really
call it a cliff... but I guess it depends on what direction you look at it from.. (from north and south east.. maybe - from south and west, clearly not.)
Better say a small hill, but definitely an island. ;-) So.. yes.. I`m really
living there. Does that tell you something special? ;-)

Windmill? ;-) That would maybe be ok for the power use.. but I doubt the cost
to build it would be low enough to really save anything all together ;-D Not that
I really need it.. I get power from the normal electricity provider.. just that no one can
see any lines going into my house.. hehe
Reason; I didnt want them there.. so I did it in another way.

Ugh.. I dont have many pc`s.. :D One old desktop, one small laptop, and one
bigger laptop.. The toaster. The coffee maker and the microwave oven. The two
latter doesnt really help me much with the crunching... but the coffee maker is
always busy.. It takes quite a lot to serve a Coconut all day and night. :p

Ritired? ;-) Maybe I should have been... hehe but my age tells that I am
not there yet.

and I am So Winning!!

;-)

I just happened to have a look in on my latest posts.. wondering
when that was.. And I found its over a year ago.. hehe

Then.. I found something I missed - because I had left already at the
point the questions were asked.. ;-))

HEY I AM retired too!!!

Ingrid are you retired?
Ingrid I have a couple of other questions for you...do you REALLY live in that house on the cliff? Do you have a windmill for power? How many pc's do YOU have?


So.. mikey.. Is these questions still unanswered? And are they still valid? ;-D

oh..btw.. I`m winning.
