  1. Thanks for the milestone mentions, everyone. I do jump on here and the stats page every once in a while to check up on things. I know I don't post anymore but I'm still folding! Good to see some familiar faces still around here.
  2. I use VMware - the free version works great.
  3. Don't know if I qualify, but I did a couple thousand points of folding about a year or so ago. I finally got my home PC working and also have my work PC cranking out...moved up 20 places on the pit team in only a couple days. It feels good to fold.
  4. I've never needed to do this, but I think it's worth a try for those extreme cases. http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-Keyboard-in-a-Dishwasher
  5. Help has arrived! Ok, so you have built your own memorial website, but you're hosting it on your own website right now. What you want to do, is move the website you built over to the original hosting because the template doesn't suit your needs...correct? The process is simple: 1. Copy all the files in the "Daniel's Memorial" folder from your current web server to your computer. That's going to include your index.html file, any pictures, backgrounds, folders, etc. 2. Navigate to the public_html directory. You'll know you're there when you see the index.html file. You'll probably see a lot of .js files, several folders, etc. 3. You probably don't want to just delete everything from here, but you could probably get away with it. Just don't delete the cgi-bin folder. If you're not sure, post back with a list of files and folders and we could help you out - the other option would be to contact your web host tech support. 4. Once you have cleaned it out a little, all you do is paste those files you copied earlier right in the public_html folder. If you have any questions about copying the files, don't hesitate to ask.
  6. If everything is pixelated, it's probably because it's satellite, not because of your video cables. Got a lot of trees around you?
  7. They give you a modem/router combo? I guess I missed that point...I would hate that.
  8. Just an FYI, my Netgear router (And I think most of them) allows me to put in my DynDNS account info - it will then update automatically for me. Then I just set up port forwarding on my router for whatever service I'm looking at.
  9. I run Windows 7 on my desktop computer, but I run a virtual machine with Ubuntu Server on top of it as my web server. The install is cake...plus, with OpenSSH enabled, I can just SFTP with zero extra configuration...no hassle with installing an FTP server. It hasn't let me down. If you have a dedicated desktop for it, I'd just skip the VM and go straight up Ubuntu Server. (There's no GUI, by the way, unless you install it yourself)
  10. Ok, thanks Kram! As soon as I can sell another computer my wife's going to let me order the goods! I appreciate your help on this - I'll be sure to post some pics when it's all said and done. Edit: Here's what I'd like to do: * G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound * Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache * ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler * GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard * Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit * SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW Rosewill Xtreme Series RX750-S-B 750W Continuous + Case, but still debating on that one. I put a star on the ones you suggested. It's probably overkill for what I do, but I can't help myself. I say that I can spend less on some components, but then I get to looking and decide that I should really put the money into them because I want it to be awesome, and then I do upgrades...oh well.
  11. Ok, that's probably what I'll go with. I've got another question (sorry, they keep coming to me as I look into this). What about going with a Quad Core [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115057] instead of a Dual Core? I'd keep the price the same, but obviously have to downgrade on the clock speed. I made the plunge, though. I sold my old laptop, putting the iMac and other Laptop up for sale next. That, combined with the TV I sold should give me close to enough.
  12. I suppose that's true - would you say the 32MB cache would beat out a RAID 0 setup at 8MB cache? If one 500GB is roughly the same cost and going to be faster, then I imagine I'd go down that road.
  13. I don't mind ATI or nVidia, I just picked a card that got good reviews. I'm not exactly sure what Crossfire is, either. It seemed to me like I might not need it.
  14. I made a couple changes, which are easier to make when I have an example for compatibility comparison. See any downsides to the above setup with the following changes? I would run these in a RAID 0 config...I just simply don't need 500GB of space, so I figured I could save some money here. The only downside was the cache size decrease, I think. 2x 160GB 8MB Cache I didn't like the reviews on the other card, but this one seemed to be generally quiet and cool. Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit No real reason for this switch other than the price difference. Sunbeam PSU Given the savings on the above, I can squeeze in a copy of Windows 7...since I'll need that...running XP just wouldn't do right. Windows 7
  15. Thanks guys - that's helpful info. I hopped on Newegg last night and just put things together I thought would be nice (without worrying about compatibility) and my final price was spot on with yours, Kram. It's good to know what kind of cost I'm looking at and that my vague ideas match up properly.
