I almost certainly won't be on tonight either. I ripped apart my system last night to upgrade a hard disk and do a fresh OS install and had a couple issues that have delayed me.

Sorry guys.

Wonder how it went. Just Mark and Dan. And Mark only plays for a mission or two. :roll:

Bummer.

Was just Dan and me this week. He played Alex and we cranked until we got to Citadel, then called it a night. Little hope two of us could take him down.

Sorry, my schedule's a little whacked this week because we have engineers from China visiting for training. I went to dinner with them last night and hit the gym tonight. I really needed to go, because I've missed like a week of workouts while I was on vacation.

Grats on 50!

Well... I thought I had it fixed. I bought a full install of Windows 7 and that seemed to get rid of the crashes (after I re-arranged all the HDDs). Unfortunately, it wasn't Windows 7 beta drivers that were causing my crashes. It was the brand new 750GB HDD that I was booting from. The damn thing just keeps dissapearing from the BIOS config screen. So, I'm going to have to replace it (and hope I can get it to work long enough to get all my data off of it).

Unfortunately, this all means that I won't be on CoH/CoV tonight.

Two motherboards and two hard drives later, the system finally seems stable. So, I expect I'll be on tomorrow.

Ah, the fun and delight of building, rebuilding, configuring, reconfiguring...ugh!

Last night, Mark asked if Jeff was ever going to join us again.

I refused to let Dell rape me today,
so I'll be getting a new hard drive and
be on next week.

Better then paying over $300 to dell for a "software" issue.
