Smile Moving - thus planned down time!

Friday morning, approx 04.30 am, we will start our relocation from UmeŚ (in Všsterbotten, Northern Sweden) to karlskrona, in Blekinge, Southern Sweden. Please see attached map.



It is a distance of approx 1190 km (740 miles) and will result in a winter 3 months shorter, a wonderful spring, summer and autumn, better jobs for my wife and me. BTW: the way in the map is the fastest, not the shortest. The shortest way takes two hours longer. The drive is for me 13 hours, for the moving van approx. 26 hours.
I will have to take down the computers tomorrow or tuesday and thus crunching will be stopped. I do not know, when the computers will be up again ... it may take a couple of weeks to get organized, and the crunching farm is not the highest priority (the cats, the bedroom and the kitchen are ...). Please don't be diappointed about the drop in production (for the TeAm of a ppd of 300K - 500K) but when all is working again, I may have a now cruncher to add... .
I'll keep you posted now and then ... good to have a lappy, but don't expect much.

I dunno. I've been looking into this city, and there's something fishy about it.

I hope you like it there.

Best of luck on the move. Enjoy the South. Silly accents down there.
My first visit/stay was in Bjarnum just outside Hassleholm. Spent a few summers down there. Very nice area.

If you have large UPS; then the farm could be crunching along during the move.

Moving is no fun; but the excitement of a being in a new place makes up for it.

Great! the longer hotter seasons sound great, gives you more time to refine the barbecue receipes

Good luck with the move!

Thanks for all your good wishes, TeAm mates!
On a side note: Are you a computer obscessed individual if your computer parts (hardware plus soft ware CDs/DVDs) take trice as many boxes as your clothes?
The computers themselves - lets not talk about that ...
And then the network at home ...

Clothes make great packing material for electronics.

Seriously, towels and blankets insulate gadgets quite well.

^^^ What zzuupp said. Fleece blankets make great monitor covers if you have to carry a ton in a car (especially if they're VESA-mounted on monitor stands).

Hi peter! (I got to see his picture) but not his wife. Sounds like a lot nicer place to live. I'm building another rig a i7 3770K plan to o/c to 3.6 or 3.7 and run hcc with a 7950 (can only afford a single no dual this time) so should get about 100,000+ ppd. Final parts should be here and up and running in less than a week. hcc has 100 days of work left. Hopefully the scientists will add more work.

Yeah, it is a very nice place ... close to the Baltic sea (so close that in the 1980 a sovjet submarine tried to sail inte the harbour but got stranded ...) and the nature is just great ...

Fred there is one problem with wolramalpha ... the numbers are not very accurate; they are close but ...
The population in Karlskrona is approx 6000 people more and there are others than those famous people ... as a matter of fact this is prime naval city in Sweden a kind of combo of Annapolis and San Diego.
I checked UmeŚ ... until Friday my city of residence. There the error in population is even greater - they claim that the population in 2006 was 75 000, which is dead wrong: now the population is approx 117 000 and it was around 104 000 in 2006 ...
I only wonder where the numbers come from.
