My question was not rhetoric question, so yes you have identified its purpose of nothing more than requiring a response.

Trouble is, there is no post #5076 in this thread. Not joking, https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8105#5076 will get you to the first post of the page you're on, depending on your preferences of course.

So either we're missing a number, or that post is in a different thread. If it's actually post #5076, it is quite an old one, one from the first or second year of these forums. I'm not sure we need to evacuate the forums for a post that old. :)


Please no evacuations here.

First to clarify, according to the index page (the one true source) there are 5084 posts in this thread at the time of writing, so given some assumptions (and a deft edit if needed) this will take its rightful place at #5085, and some skilful counting backwards will arrive at the post in question. Also we find count forwards from #5076 arrives magically at 5085.

So the purpose of this post is is to confirm my earlier post was #5076.

Edit: this edit was not needed for completeness

The forums don't count that way. And since you still neglect to link to it, a thing you may want to do next time around when you play games with people's moth-balled brains, we're not all following extreme humour, or following the ramblings of an (unevenly?) balanced Brit, so for that reason - yet! perhaps not that reason alone, there may be different other reasons that you may have, or anyone reading this thread really, but hold your word if you don't want to share, you may have secret reasons, or raisins, or graisins (look that up if you need to) - you may want to check the number again, as it was #72501. I, for me stand by my answer in #72052.

Can you still follow? :)

Ah but thread wise it was post no 5076 but message number 72501 - After a lovely evening out with 3 gorgeous females, who cares.

From an unbalanced Brit [should have refrained from that last Rum & Black) hic.

We seem to have reached an impasse of the use of the octothorpe (look it up :) )

Perhaps i should have written "... the five thousand and seventy sixth post in this thread" - which is a little difficult to read.

Do you have any leather that's still alive...? I'm only asking because I think it could save a lot of effort if I just - got it a bit - riled...

do you need help with that?

I expect I'll manage okay, thanks ;)

hmm....2 for the price of 1....interesting...

Oh, my 2 cents as well. Yes, can't stand the new Einstein.

Very hard to communicate with my teammates. Can't even check up on my rigs. Very frustrating...Might have to give GPUGrid a go again, lol...

Seti always has at least 1 machine crunching full time for it but I like to spread around, entropy..you know that sort of thing.. lol

Edit..

Opps..sorry...Forgot to say hello anniet..

Hello anniet!!

Not sure I shall ever make it right with some above me//
I have some say, but PC trumps what I have to say.
I can tell you this, my work is above all.

Now, in leaving you, I shall give you this song.
One night, long ago, a poor boy mad a choice.
And it was the wrong one.

I have made so many bad choices, but never pulled a gun.

I know you shot a gun once or more, but no ETs or Humans were harmed.

I just woke up from a really wild, wild, dream//

Let me get some of this down before it goes.



I was Greg Koch....now, this is only significant if you know who Greg is.
Master guitar player extroudanair and man about town. And one of the coolest guys you could ever meet.....

Short lesson........
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL5UuukdnQY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWt6RcOGkLs

Soooooooooo....
I am, in this dream, holding the one and only original one and only Les Paul experimental guitar left in the world.........one of which I own, by the way.
I have traced it back to him./
Anyway...

And out of this guitar comes forth one of the most original sounds ever heard by the ears of man.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4peMwQQz3E

Only, this confounds me, because Sleepwalk was done on pedal steel, not a Les Paul. So, of course, I take this to the masses. With fame and glory.

And then one day, the God of all Gods of the guitar comes to me.
And he says.........Son, stop beseeching my work. I am Les Paul, and you know I did not play Sleepwalk on the Les.

I am heartbroken, and stop playing for life. Which is significant, because this happened back in 1965. When I still could have.

Enjoy the sounds of those that could. While I still cry because I cannot.
\\


One of the last shows he ever did far away in New York......................

Oh, I do not regret.
Sigh a bit at times.
Look back and wonder..........

But, my life if so short and insignificant.

Thank you for the song./

You shall remember me when it is seldom played.

So... for the past 7 hours I have been reinstalling Windows 7. Doing a repair installation of Windows so it takes over all programs, files and settings (again).

After the install was complete - something that took 3 hours, 40 minutes - I went and followed the updates installation of http://www.infoworld.com/article/3105605/microsoft-windows/2-easy-steps-to-speed-up-windows-7-update-scans.html... but this is missing one giant update.

For if you have installed Windows 7 with SP1, there is an update for that that you need to install because otherwise the key update KB3172605 that fixes the hogging of the CPU core by Windows Update - as that's why it doesn't work, doesn't update anything at all, not even after waiting for hours - won't work. This required update is KB3020369. Neither Woody, nor the other site mentions this.

You would normally get this update in through Windows Update after you installed Windows with SP1, but that's problematic here as Windows Update doesn't work.

So, now at Windows Update, looking at 157 important and 77 optional updates. Gonna be fun! We count 7 hours, 7 minutes, let's continue!

KD Lang.......anybody know her real name is Kathryn Dawn Lang?
Not many do.
Dunno why she hides such a beautiful name behind the simple KD tag.
But, she has made many choices in her life and I accept that as one of them.

Ya know how loud the sound of the semiauto going off is?
About 120db or better.
And yet few of the actors in many movies display temporary deafeness./

They just go on with the script, like nothing else happened.

Part 2, downloading and installing 73 updates.
The initial 157 ones took an hour and a half to download. Really not normal on a 200Mbit connection. They took a further hour to install.
