Successfully overclocked the new processor to 2.9Ghz per core. That's just using the switch on the motherboard to overclock the FSB and the automatic settings in BIOS. I had to lower the RAM frequency to make it stable. I could probably push it further if I knew what the @#%^ I was doing. Still sitting at a cool 33 degrees while idle, and haven't even peaked 45 under load.

And no, I haven't put pants on yet. I'm actually a bit frustrated; my first day off in weeks, and thanks to my screwed up sleep schedule, I still work up at 6:30am. Smiley: mad

Edit: Holy crap. I just ran the FFXIV benchmark for ***** and giggles. Scored a 2433 at low resolution. With old motherboard/processor I only hit 1600. Pretty good for a $200 upgrade! I bet I could push that over 3000 with some more RAM and a bit more overclocking. Even higher if I was running Win7.

Well. I guess you can leave if you really want to, as long as you continue to visit Alla and rate me up post once in a while.

I've been doing my best to save money recently so I can afford an internet connection at home and its not going so well. It has made me look into alternatives for ffxi play time.

Usually I play at work. I am the counter guy/manager at a tattoo shop, but I don't tattoo, so I have a lot of free time. I do have a fair amount of interruptions there though, and understandably so.

I've been going to Barnes & Noble to play as well, but then I don't have access to a plug and I can only play as long as my battery will hold out.

Then I thought about it... I bet there's a way to tether my blackberry without having to pay the tethering fee. There's a way around everything. I have unlimited data and 3G coverage, and ffxi's bandwidth cap is so low that maybe it'll work.

After much googling and figuring, I got it to work! My laptop sees it as a 115.2kbps dialup connection, and my phone even displays that it is in "Modem Mode", but still recieves calls and txts as usual. Its gotta be using the data connection, right? I hope so... Cause I don't have unlimited daytime minutes and I played for about 8 hours over the past 2 days.

So, does anyone have experience with something like this? My old dynaLS leader did it with a droid or something a few times back in the day, but he's a d-bag and I don't want to talk to him.

I guess I can just not play til after 6pm when my free minutes start for the rest of the month, and see what my bill says. It just sucks because I work 6pm til after midnight 5 days a week, so my prime play time is when the sun's up and my minutes cost money.

Any insight?

Oh yeah, tl;dr Does it cost me daytime minutes when tethering my blackberry through trickery and not paying the tethering fee on my plan so I can play ffxi?

My little cousin found that under a shelf in a local food market, and has been taking pictures of it for the last couple weeks.
