Please help - After doing 10M points a while back, I took an unplanned break due to some computer failures.  Now, trying to come back, I forgot to add my tean to my username in user.txt...

Can you please add the points from my recent account "Jathanis" to my old (and correct) account "[H]Jathanis"?

Thank you!

OK, should be reflected in the stats within a few hours.  Make sure you've corrected user.txt on all your machines.

Perfect - thanks!  Both user.txt have been corrected and clients restarted, just to be on the safe side.

New user here who is in denial that he needs glasses....I made a mistake in the user.txt.  Instead of [DPC]EekTheMan, I wrote {DPC]EekTheMan :_o =

Could you somehow correct this for me to: [DPC]EekTheMan

I have changed the user.txt on both my PC's to [DPC]EekTheMan now.

OK I've renamed the files on the server, it should show up in the stats in a few hours.

As for glasses, I've found the various different combinations of res and screen size affect how easy it is to read a desktop screen.  So I got a 1920x1080 21.5" panel and that's rather on the small side, 23" is better, I'd imagine 24" is optimal for 1080p. Work gave me a 2560x1440 screen at 27" and the dot pitch was so small I had to scale Windows 7's GUI to 125%. Probably 30-32" is optimal there.

Ah!  Thanks Mr Brooks. 

I am actually browsing the web now trying to find a replacement for my replacement laptop...of my spare laptop...if the plague exists for laptops, it definately hit my house

Looking for a good programming/gaming(XCOM)/crunching laptop.  The above result took a month of crunching @10% on an AMD TL-50 64. Wayyy too long.  Another laptop is on 9,9KB for 2 weeks now.

But a good screen is important too.  Daytime is OK for me, but in the evening when I get tired I really need a high res screen.  I would like a large screen like yours, but that is not realy an option on a laptop.  But the absurdly high resolutions recently shown on the IFA will probably allow me to postpone on buying glasses for another 5 years

These options from Scan might be useful inspiration (sorry UK pricing).  In my experience Scan's preconfigured systems are quite well balanced, though I've never had a "gaming laptop" - always had a netbook for travel and a powerful desktop at home.
