  1. The price of our current host is getting outrageous. They recently removed the plan that we've been using that was about $10 a month. Now the plan we're on cost $30 a month if paid by the year. There is a significant discount if we renew for 3 years that brings the price down to $18 a month. 

    The other option is to switch to a new host that will get us back under the $10 range. But moving hosts involves the possibility of losing our years worth of OCN history if the forum database gets corrupted or something else happens.

    Out again, but not for long this time.  Hope to be back for memorial day.  I am getting too old for this shit, haha.


    Hope everyone is doing well!  Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter Chupo!

    I enabled the "I'm not a robot" check box, maybe that will help 🤷‍♂️

    What we need to renew Squeeks? Need some cash? It's a bit peculiar that we are willing to pay good money just to keep this going, but what the hell! Can't take it with me when I die!

    I did a bit of moderation to block and delete some spam.

    Let me look into it. I think it's just the liscense to keep receiving updates, so it's not that important. Disappointing that we're still getting spam, this software is usually pretty good about keeping it out.

    Is it bad that when I look at some posts I have to think "what year"?

    its nothing short of a miracle that Ive been able to keep all of this content together for over 15 years...

    I got good news and bad news.

    The bad news is, we're getting old.

    The good news is, we're getting old.

    oh man, I was wondering if you were still alive! 😁

    I've got a 16 GB Kit of G.Skill Ripjaw DDR4-3200 RAM that doesn't work for crap in my Ryzen system and needs some Intel love. I'd be willing to donate, perhaps we could have a give-away to generate some traffic? Nothing like free stuff to pull in traffic.

    Why doesn't it like Ryzen?

    Well Pirates, I have downloaded BOINC and fired it back up. Of all the projects available, Rosetta@Home has the most meaning for me. If I'm going to burn the watts, I like it to be for something tangibly good. Rosetta has recently contributed to the search for a COVID vaccine, which is really exciting. So Pirates, dust off those machines, download BOINC and fire up Rosetta. Let's see if we can regain some of that old glory! (We currently sit at 183rd)

    I shall join you! If I can remember my boinc login... 🤔 

  9. Several years back I think we talked about getting away from the pirate theme, I'm ceartinly open to discussion on any ideas. We also own the old overclockers-network.com domain but I'm not sure that really fits the main focus of this community either. Really interested to hear what yall want to do. 

  10. I would love to get this place going again. Either on the continued focus of hardware, overclocking and distributed computer or shift the focus one whatever our hobbies reflect. 

    For the past few years I've been managing gaming communities so that is my specialty at the moment. I know that doesn't fit eveyones fancy but perhaps it could be a part. 


    Looking for ideas, let me know! 

  11. Send a PayPal address, I'll contribute. ;)


    Pony up boys!


    I'll shoot ya a PM


    Would love to see some activity around here again, I just renewed the hosting for another few years so it ain't going anywhere...

  12. Yup! Now I need to figure out why it's not showing you as logged in until you click on a forum 🤔


    this seems to be fixed now, but there is also a problem of it not reloading the page when you click a link. that's..odd...

  13. A couple of us still hang around. I toss some money at a webhost every few years and it stays online. There are the occasional holes that need patching but it mostly works!
