I got my PC back from the shop -- the new heat sink and fan is a shiny silver color, and it blows sideways from the mother board, as opposed to directly up from the mother board, as the stock cooler did. My PC runs a lot cooler and a lot quieter. Also had them double the RAM to 12 GB. This is an older PC (2011 - 2012?), but it's kind of on the beefy side. So I'm back to crunching -- doing 3 WUs at a time -- not sure if I want to increase it to 4 or not just yet. One of my friends with cancer passed away last night
I've been visiting him every week -- he liked visitors. Another friend of mine and I went out to pray for him last week. He lives out east in Ellicott. The common thread with two of these people is that they are heavy smokers.
Peacemaker -- I like hiking from time to time. I like hiking up the Manitou Incline. Also, a month or so ago, I hiked up part way to Cheyenne Mountain. I got part way up the Dixon Trail
, but didn't have enough time to make it to the top and back. And I was having foot problems and didn't want to push it -- only did about 9 miles round trip. Ended up buying custom inserts that my podiatrist recommended for me. The Dixon Trail is in Cheyenne Mountain State Park
- a Colorado State park, just across from Ft. Carson. The trails were really well done and well marked, but the scenery wasn't that good, unless you like looking at the back half of Ft. Carson, including Butts Army Air Field
