In Europe they would probably call this "performance art". ;)

That's exactly why I have stopping buying boards over $200. Now when they turn out to be a PoS I am only out half the amount.

Heheh.

Ahh but think of the entertainment value.....


-------------

I have decided the final fate for the striker.I had intended to use liquid nitrogen to assist in the rendering process....however , it doesnt deserve anything that cool.

I'm going to use sheer unadulterated brute f'ing force to smash it to bits.

I'm taking it to work again tomorrow to meet it's last new friend.

I promise it'll be worth seeing heheh......I'm going to try to get video with audio this time.

Weather? What could be held back by weather?

BTW, I just may have a partner for your board - it too may find a timely death. Motherboard 680i number 4's Memory Controller went berzerk last week and took with it Ram Slot number 1. We'll see what eVga has to say about this, but I told my customer not to put his hopes up...

hehe

I'm filling in holes , that I have previously dug.They are 3'x3'x5' vertical holes.I am just finishing a house I just lifted.Here's a shot of 1 side :



So anyways , it rained onsite all day thursday , and got 12" of snow last night.....that dirtpile is mush , which means I can't fill the holes with mush , so.....The tool I want the striker to meet had to be returned to the rental place.....Next week tho hopefully.
