Apologies for being absent for a while, work and life have been keeping me busy. It's also been miserably hot lately so I'm running CPU only on just a few boxes these days. I did just manage to turn my SOB badge to a nice deep blue.... Here's to cool weather ahead and getting back up to full power!

Here is a picture I took over night. https://flic.kr/p/2goo7cf

It is of what are sometimes called the Pelican and North American Nebulae.



ok, having never seen this before, after looking for a minute, I see a face and since seeing it, I cant make out anything else. it's an old wizard-looking guy with a long beard... I believe it's possibly where the head of the pelican might be -- I can see the left half of a face, near the center of the image -- rounded top of head with hair, one eye, long nose, mouth, long beard... anyone else seeing this? My daughter was pretty sure she saw Thanos, but he disappeared when I pointed out the face I'm seeing... My wife cant see the face even when I point it out -- maybe I'm just a bit looney.

Its been hitting mid-90s (F) or better most of the week -- time to spin things down to keep the house a reasonable temp... Today I also did my semi-annual "blowing of the dust", this time using a small air compressor with a blower tip -- worked very well, I learned that holding onto the fans while blowing will keep them from spinning ridiculously fast.

I'll probably stick to CPU only for a couple of months.

not sure if there are any rules on the forums around posting 'for sale' stuff -- hopefully this does not give anyone heartburn.

I'm looking for a good home for my older EVGA GeForce GTX 950 SC+ GAMING ACX 2.0 cards (two of them) -- looks like they are going on ebay for 50-80 bucks, so I'll let em go to a good home for $50 each -- just figured I'd check here first before dealing with ebay or craigslist... definitely prefer keeping them within the USA to avoid shipping hassles. PM if interested.

FWIW, my Nvidia 1660Ti is averaging about 180k seconds for the DYFL tasks, seems to be a pretty decent 'bang for the buck', almost double the speed of a 1060.

If looking for more of a CPU cruncher, you may have luck looking for used server hardware, I ended up buying a used 2-node server with dual xeons in each node -- it's essentially two 16 core computers -- it is noisy as all hell, so maybe consider that if you have a garage / basement / soundproof room to put it in :)

You get the 1/2 size or is there even a full size? I was looking at those real hard as well.


I got a full size with two fans:

He ended up getting the 1660.


I've been eyeballing the 1660Ti as an upgrade to my older GPUs and decided to go ahead and buy one. It seems to be a pretty good bang for the buck... as much as I want to go all out on the RTX2080, I just cant justify it... anyhow, just plugged in the 1660Ti and it seems to be cranking along at about double the speed of my 1060s and WAY less heat than the previous two GTX950s.
