Re: HP Server Power Issue

Have you checked the IML and iLO logs for any errors?

Swapping out the mobo, psu's, RAM and drives basically replaces most of the server. Strange.

Things I've tried: Tested another PSU, same result. Stripped out RAM, sometimes it beeps, sometimes it does not. (correct error beep ...

Re: Official Battlefield 3 thread

I'm getting bored with BF3 now.

Reached my goal for the sniper of getting a 1200m+ head shot. I guess I'll go back playing assault of engineer. But going from sniping to close quarter combat will be a big change. :lol: :lol:

Re: Weather Watch

Hmmm.

BIG rain and storms were predicted for our town. Not much happened. Only 400mm fell.
Wind was a bit hectic last night and today, but nothing worse than what we have seen. No flooding.

Bit of a storm in a teacup hey. :D For our area anyway.

Re: Are Rich People Less Moral?

Rich and famous people's personal lives are more in the public eye, hence we hear about their immoralities much more.

No rocket science involved.

For every rich/famous person doing something immoral, there are 100's of "normal" people committing the same atrocity.

Yeah what I thought after my post as well.

It's looks huge, but all those things should be small tweaks in the code.
If the last Karkland patch was 3.9GB, then this one should be like 1GB or less.
