    Yea, I am about 300km south of Calgary, so it would be easy for me.
    Don't think 4 people would make for a very good meet, would it?

    I live in Medicine Hat.
    My comp isn't in yet, haha. But I figure that it would be in before any meet. :-P
    When it got cool then really hot for a few days here, it caused my bezel to seperate from the plastic and fiberglass. So I am fixing it up a bit. This weekend I hope... But I think that the coldness should be good for the computer becuase it might run cooler?

    "But I think that the coldness should be good for the computer becuase it might run cooler?"

    True to 0 celcius:
    Most hard drives use "liquid fluid bearings" to spin the platters. Key word, liquid. Below freezing, the liquid obviously becomes more and more viscous - I don't think it will actually freeze as I think it is an oil solution, but it could very easily cause hard disk failures or at very least cause your hard drive to refuse to boot. For this reason I am looking into the possibility of using a USB 2.0 removable HDD and just taking it inside with me when I park. I'll see how this goes...but when it gets to minus 30, I don't see a standard HDD working.

    It's all happening on the West(wet)coast.

    You guys need to spend the winter here. Last year we had about six days of snow. Admittedly, it was a record cold here, but that's a warm day for you guys.
    I know all about cold, I've lived in Edmonton and Prince George. I used to love the snow drifts in Edmonton. Six foot high wall of snow in front of our front door.

    I think the bears have it right. Park your cars and hibernate for the winter.

    At least you can all overclock your processors all winter long.
    My friend used to move his case out onto his balcony in the winter, then O/C the hell out of it. (I know, bad idea, not mine)


    We need to correlate a Seattle meet when my car club has our annual Picnic in Arlington.

    Anyway, not much going on in this post, so I'll sign off. :P

    Kickin' it on the westside.
