No problem! You're a good...no, a great guy. Glad the doc got it figured out.
Whenever it's done is fine with me.

I know how you feel - my hard drive just died.
Like a fool, I didn't have a recent back up.

Okay, I give up. What is an overclock failure?

He burned something up.

In overclocking, you raise the clock speed (CPU and/or memory and/or GPU), to improve performance of machine, and that heats things up. Sometimes you push too far or the cooling doesn't cut it, and things burn out.

I would have never got that one on my own. HS seems to have a number of computer issues. Perhaps he pushes them way past their limits. Now crush depth - there is a place I can relate to!

Dont believe it... an Overclock Failure is actually when you take a lunch break and don't clock out... and get caught..



Later,

Overclocking is something of a computing hobbyist cult. They often buy liquid cooling systems for their computer innards. Mainstream computing types look on them with a mixture of horror and fascination and envy.

Horror: you could burn up pricey components!
Fascination: you can do that? You do liquid cooling?
Envy: I wish I had the guts.

Well, it was factory overclocked, so not my fault

hassle  replaced all the parts and nothing, then spent 4 hours with support the next, doing the same things we already did the day before, and the call before, now got a motherboard, 12 gigs of ram, 2 vid cards, a power supply and 2 HARD Drives on there way, all I need is a case and a CPU and it is a brand new computer

so, in others, I am still pretty much down

Hi Guys
stupid, the power supply blew, all they could see was the vid cards didn't seem to work, so had to be the vid cards (which yea, you need a power supply for the vid cards to work !)

but, got a new mother board, 12 gigs of ram, 2 new Vid Cards, and a new power supply (I wouldnt let them replace the HDs) and got the dang thing working again

but. now of course, I am out of town for the week, trying to talk with David, about what I want to do, what I can do, and if that matches what they want me doing, once we get that all worked out, should be able to tell you more

(sorry for the delays, I thought something might happen to me and I would be out of the picture for a while, so had some back ups in place, as a just in case, only now I find out, nobody used them, oh well)

I am very glad to hear that Hard Sarge is Okay, you are as much the Front Man for this sim as Matrix Games, the tooth-and nails of this Project. I have a bit of a Heart Glich CHF, which is no joke, but "thank you modern medicine"...
I have a question (of-course)...
I was in March 1944 as defender doing some Night-Flying, for some reason, I struck the Keyboard Letter "O" button (by accident), and all of a sudden all flightgroups seemed to "Organize", as though the A.I. had taken control for a bit.
This is not listed in the Game Manual, does anyone know what the Letter "O" Button Hot-Key does (in Action Mode)? It is not in Players Guide (page 114), what exactlly is the command for that key?
