Unread post by Gold Leader »

Hello everyone :)

Well here I go I guess , show your rig hmm which of the four xD

So instead the entire network that I named CLUBNET which was the old network name of the Computer Club I went to from 1992 to 2010 and yea after we closed down on December 04, 2010 this was the last day we had Computer Club the server and all the old memories was passed on to me.

And well I kind of rebuilt my network to how it was like at that Computerclub, Towers speakers keyboards, mice and Monitors on the desk, if you are born to LAN Then you just Live to LAN right :D

And the same for this system, old pic, but same parts:

And yea, what can I say they all fulfill their main purpose, every new gen game runs like a dream on the Dual 6 core & Dual 12 core Opterns no sweats 1920x1200 for the Dual 6 core and 2560x1600 for the Dual 12 Core, all my Opterons use monitors with a 16:10 aspect ratio, it's that I can't stand 16:9, I prefer a Monitor aspect ratio and not from that of a TV for Retro always 4:3 :)

As such things go I am different than others, 1CPU systems for my mains will never happen, just not my interest, they are fine for secondary systems, but my two mains always 2CPU's. as a 2CPU.com member since May 08, 2001 running 2CPU systems never got out of my blood, once it gets in ya it stays there man.

Here a little intro song, some good classic Aussie Hard Rock:

AC/DC - Shoot To Thrill (Live at Donington, UK, August 17,1991)

Hi there Gold Leader, great to see you here again. Wow has your PC systems area grown from what I remember. I remember when it was just 2 systems.

Love the multi-core systems. I've always wanted one. Still on the hunt for an appropriate one that fits me.

But good love for those Opty's

Nice, I enjoyed seeing your them. Pretty cool how Supermicro was a head of the curve with the way cores are going today.


EDIT: we need some image handling I'm not liking how the site is displaying them.... BRB!
Sorry they are loading a little slow when I full size them, made sure I'm not throttling on this end best I could do. ;)

Hey guys as for the slow loading that may be because of the free gallery I am using and have been using since 2008
https://abload.de/

this way I save space for your website here, even I know this place also has an image uploader , I always try to stick to my own resources.
My bad for the inconvenience, your site is fast on my end tho, only oddity is from going to high res image and back to the site I get this glitching effect before I am sent back to this page.

I can try and capture the effect hmm.

Anyways yea well I had 9 Computers at some point, sold about 5 of them and now have four left over, this works alright for me.
I may have pics of the systems I sold even though I often get vibes to rebuild them, even I know I should not I did it to create breathing space for myself in the end, I only got 65M2 of living space roughly 223 Ft2

Can't have everything right.

I already see the effects no worries on posting them. ;)
It's your choice on how you want to do the images on the forum, I'm good either way.

That said this is a really good VPS and so you know billing is both data and storage
bandwidth wise I took 4000G monthly to start out... so no worries.
Our storage is severed up on MVME drives as you can guess "huge" speed jump for your stuff if you choose to use it.

Resource wise and you have to factor in the OS and everything I've installed on it were using .05% to a peak of 5% of it's resources.
I have no issue with upping the server either if the need arises. ;)

Hmm Interesting so if I use the image uploader here privacy protection may be better, as images can be seen for forum members only right?

Or will member shave a choice to make images viewable for people they are connected to only as in friended to only, eventho admins & mods should always be able to see what is posted.

But damn that connection can't be cheat, especially these days :X
Well I'll do my best where ever I can help you guys with :)

Either way you post them everyone can see in the public areas.

If you wish to post something that you don't want everyone to publicly see, you put it in the members only forums.
