I'm been having hardware problems, I had 2 motherboards crap out and require replacement the Athlon XP 2100+ and 4200 X2. The 4200 X2 was easy to find a replacement board for, the Athlon XP was a little harder as socket 462 is getting a little thin on the ground around here. Anyway all better now.

The Athlon 1200 I had going for a while has moved out of the house with one of the non-children last year.

I just gave away my 733mhz Coppermine to a friend as an e-mail box. I replaced it with an AMD k6-2 350 box that I built before the turn of the millenium. Being an AMD fanboy this is good as my house is now Intel free :-) Bad news is the K6-2 takes ~80hrs for a work unit :-(

To make it all worse my work has been stealing CPU cycles from Seti. :-|

It seems obvious that I need to invest in some new hardware. I am trying to wait for Barcelona to be released and hope to have a midrange model fall into my price range, but in the meantime I may be overcome by falling prices and the money in the pocket syndrome.

For anybody reading this who is not part of the team.

Seriously, bluejaywpg, how about a reminder on the General Emulation board, there be life signs there.
