To be clear-headed rather than confused; lucid rather than obscure; rational rather than otherwise; and to be neither more, nor less, sure of things than is justifiable by argument or evidence. That is worth trying for.

Gimme a chance, the dialup modem didn't work, started making clicking sounds and then all my cards quit working, I got sound back via stock dell onboard but the damn machine doesn't accept cards yet. But I'll eventually get there.

Sometimes I hate computers.

PS: you guys ought to be careful at work ;-)

If I use the rest of the computers as well, we should be able to get about a hundred of them running..

Mine estimated about the same. After an hour or so, the estimated time left was reduced to about 30 hours.

I just want to remark that I read about an administrator who got fired for installing a similar program (I think it was SETI) on some office computers. Legally you might have to ask your boss if you are allowed to do that.

I had a SETI machine (connected to a piece of lab equipment--not under IT Dept. jurisdiction) run for over a year after I left the company. YMMV

He knows about it. We sell biochemicals and pharmaceutical substances (ever seen 96% pure cocaine? It's yellow!) so a few R&D guys were rather enthusiastic. Thanks for the warning, Johann. It's appreciated.

No problemo here, I make policy.
