I live in Texas. I don't know of any other NPLB members that do. Probably me you're remembering (or trying to). It's been hot and very dry lately (we're in a drought), but not record-setting AFAIK.

I was just refering to record setting for the area I live in, Eastern Washington, and the month/day records is all. Nothing on a national/world record scale if thats what anyone was thinking. :) But we've popped over 100F which while not the hottest I've been in by any means, still makes life difficult for the A/C units. :) And also we are getting higher humidity than we used to get when the temperature was in the 100's. It used to be that this was a pretty dry area.

Even though you found it, I'll include the URL here for others' reference:

http://nplb.rieselprime.org

That's not to be confused with our "old" stats at http://www.rieselprime.org/nplb/NPLB_Scoring.htm; those were replaced with the more-frequently-updated (and, in the case of the AES300 server, automatically updated) stats at the nplb.rieselprime.org web site.

So someone tell me a little about the future plans for cuda. I went out and bought a play toy, a gpu as in nvida 9800GT. So now I'm wondering if there's gonna be any application for these little hummers, whether llr or sieving?

First of all, I would recommend that you take a look at this thread in the Hardware forum which contains a whole lot of discussion regarding running prime search apps on GPU's.

As for how any of that would apply to NPLB: As detailed in the above-linked thread, there are currently no prime-searching apps capable of running on GPU's. It is possible that at some point in the future some trial factoring/sieving applications may be ported to GPU's, though there are no ongoing projects of that sort that I know of.

I need a recommendation for a good cooling fan for a Q9400 installed on an Intel DG35EC motherboard. Something that uses the stock fan mounting holes would be the preferred item. I'm not a long time Intel user so am not familiar with what's what with intel.

Zalman HSFs are pretty good. I have several Intel quads and they are using the Zalman CNPS9700LED. My Intel Q8400 has a CNPS9900LED. They are fairly large so need a wide case. eg Antec 902 or Coolermaster CM690. The fan is bolted onto a backplate on the otherside of the motherbaord so you have to dismantle the whole machine when you install it.

I tried one Xigmatek HSF and it was useless as it used push pins instead of bolts. Well if a pin breaks the HSF falls off the CPU so cooling is shite!

yeah, I've been out looking at fans. The intel method is sure an extremely weak sister compared to the amd method, not to mention a major PITA to install them. :-( Sigh.....

@project_admins: I have two ISP's here, Verizon, and Charter. Charter has issues in that I cannot access Prof Caldwell's top-5000 site to report primes. My Verizon account is not working and the earliest that a Verizon Tech will be here is five days away. The problem lies in the wiring from my house box to their big dsl cloud in the sky.

The outcome of this is that I need a version of the old port 9000 with the clean-up work on it that I can just run like before.
