Posting after dinner. :-)

Meatloaf, green beans, sweet potato with Kerri Gold butter, and pickled beets. :-)
TL


I had the last of the leftover chicken and trisquit casserole. A neighbor is going thru radiation treatments
for cancer and all the other neighbors are making them a meal every other day and Friday was our day, and that's
what my wife made for them plus she made one for us too. It was one of my moms recipes and turned out very good.
I am winning again!!

I booted Prometheus up for tonight. She will crunch Collatz in half an hour. She'll crunch through the night. :-)
TL


WOO HOO!!! It must be cooler where you are. For me in North Carolina it's just rain, I live along the Coast so no snow until maybe
Tuesday morning and even then only a dusting. The high today could hit 50F but the next couple of days won't get out of the 40'sF.
Starting next Thursday though it's back to highs in the mid 60'sF!!
I am winning!!!

MY KNEES!!!!! :-O

Had chicken fat shots back in September, BUT I need further assistance. Doc refuses to do knee surgery for another 10 Years!!! 'Cause if he does it now, I WILL need it done AGAIN later in life.

So, Doc is sending me to Physical Therapy.

Going up and down stairs, getting out of the car, kneeling ALL hurt!!! :-O
TL


My old neighbor had that done multiple times until she got new knees, I think she got them every 3 months for a couple of years or so. And it's true about having to
get them redone about every 15 to 25 years as the parts wear out. About 5 years ago, haven't seen it since, I saw a knee joint advertised on tv that had replaceable wear inserts built into it, an easy out patient surgery is all that was needed to replace the wear pads. You might ask around or surf the net to see if they are still around and actually work, I want to say the wear pads were nylon or something so easily replaceable but durable too.

I am winning again!!

Going back to fully clean out the Storage Locker tomorrow. :-( Most of it's going to the dump. :-(
TL


OH BOY that sounds like ALOT of fun!!
You could just stop paying and after x amount of time they will auction it off, which means someone else cleans it out.

NO!!!!!

IF I do that, then they keep billing, month after month - late fee after late fee, AND THEN it goes to COLLECTIONS!!! THEN, they auction it off!

So, this way, (since I gave my 30 Day Notice), all I have to pay is the Final Bill.
TL


Yeah that would not be good!!
I am back to my winning ways!!

If all, or even some, of the other projects I run on the NVIDIA GPU failed with the 400 series drivers I would reinstall the latest 300 driver. However, Collatz is the only one to fail.

I'll stay with the 400 series.


Sounds good, happy crunching.

Been busy organizing, shredding, and getting ready to dump stuff from my past. The organizing and shredding was good, dumping stuff won't be.

I did alot of that when I moved 2 years ago, but I still have a garage full of stuff to get rid of!!

Installed NVIDIA 417.01 and Collatz immediately crashed out with Error: GPU steps do not match CPU steps. Workunit processing aborted.

Other projects are running ok.

I'll wait until this problem is reported fixed before running Collatz again.


Nope the 400 series driver don't work here with less than the brand new 2000 series cards, I've been thru several.
Just uninstall the brand new driver and unless you uninstalled the older drivers they are still in there and will take over, after a reboot,
and you will be crunching again.

Posting to say "Hi". :-)
TL


HI!! I had chili for dinner last night and I had to turn my gas logs on again this morning because it was back down to 63F in the house.
It's 29F outside but 45F on my patio in the morning Sun so the logs should do their thing pretty fast today. The weatherman is still
saying it will be in the low 70's on the weekend.


OMG!!! We had Chilli, too. :-) I topped mine with Cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, and Sriracha Hot Sauce! :-) :-D
TL


Nope no hot sauce or me!! As for the other things I do sometimes but not that night. I did have a couple pieces of sourdough bread with it though.
Last night I had butterflyed shrimp and a little bit of leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving.

It got below freezing last night for the first time this year, 31F, and I had to turn my gas logs on in my family room because it's 63F in here!!
That's the temp the heat pump is set at so it came on during the night, I wish I had an easy way to get the heat from my pc's to the rest of the house!!

It's on the Projects end and there is nothing you can do about it, just ignore it and keep getting new tasks.

I'm going to start tonight with a Grangestone 12 Yr Scotch. :-)

Anyone else?
TL


Nope no Scotch for me thanks, I'm a bourbon guy but not neat!!
I do like a small splash of Bourbon in my evening flavored coffee.
When I go out drinking I usually drink a Margarita on the rocks, I seem to be able to drink more than a few of those without too much problem.

Thanks, Mikey, for the Win!

The new Winning Number is a Post Count Number which I have committed to memory. (...What was that number, again???)


[Rules:]

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread.
6. No double posts. Violator buys a round for the house in The SETI Refugee Pub.
7. Additional rule -- No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post.)

Rules borrowed from SETI's LPTPHW Thread. (Substitute "Rocky's" for "The SETI Refugee Pub".)


CONGRATULATIONS on your win!!
Right now though I am winning!!!

Just got back from seeing the latest Fantastic Beasts movie. Got to see it on a "New" screen called "Screen X" by Regal - this is a surround projection video experience. (Projected on left wall, front screen, and right wall.) I WILL be seeing Aquaman on this new screen in December. :-) :-D


WINNING AGAIN!!!!! :-) :-D
TL


WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! TimeLord04 YOU are the winner of TLTP 6.0!!!
You know what to do next!! The trigger was the last person to post before the last F1 race of the season in Abu Dhabi today which happens in under an hour.

A friend of mine saw Fantastic Beasts and didn't care for it at all. I don't think he saw on the type of screen you did though, he would have said so if he did anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!! :-)
TL


I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving too!!

Thanksgiving was GREAT!!! :-)

We had a 15 lb turkey, stuffing, gravy, asparagus, and sweet potatoes. We had pecan and pumpkin pies for dessert. I ate one turkey leg last night with some stuffing topped with gravy, a couple sweet potato pieces, and LOTS of water.

This morning, I had the second turkey leg for breakfast. :-)
WINNING AGAIN!!!!! :-) :-D
TL


WOW That sounds very good!! We had a boneless turkey breast with all the fixins and then had turkey sandwiches yesterday.
We also had a pumpkin cheesecake and an apple pie. I brought some eggnog and some Sake too and everything is almost gone with 6 adults and 2 kids.
