yup...the other version was likely to get trashed, and instead of posting yet annother thread for R32 to bump when he gets bored, I just re-used one that had multiple reads but no replys.

I have used the nic Paradox online for a very long time. I used to run a BBS back before the days of the World Wide Web. It was called HoP, House of Paradox. Now days if I sign up for a board and the nic is already in use I add 800 to it. The 800 is a bowling goal that I have yet to make.

Wow Strat, we are, like, totally, cosmicly connected. My real name means "warrior"



Gunchyck is pretty self-explanatory, right?

I like guns, and I didn't want to have to keep explaining to people that I'm a girl. (Though I find that I have to explain it anyway to some...) And my cavalier usage of the word "chick" pisses my mother off. I, sadistically enough, find this hilarious.

Not that I really believe either of these is what scrun really means, but...

1. scrun
Originated by Dafydd "pipeline" Williams of ATMOS Software Productions. scrun is a situational word that changes meaning depending on it's context. It is a usually a general exclamatory, or can be used in place of "stuff".
"I have a whole heap of scrun here."
"Scrun you, hippy!"
"I'm just scrunning about."
by Dafydd Williams Nov 30, 2003


ETA: This is specific to SCO unix IIRC

NAME
scrun - SCore front-end process to run a user parallel program on a cluster

SYNOPSIS
scrun [-SCoreOptions] file [program_options]

DESCRIPTION
scrun is a front-end program for scored(8) that manages a variety of cluster resources. User programs running on a cluster must be invoked via the scrun program.

Firstly, scrun invokes the user program, specified by file, on the host where scrun was executed. This is done in such a way to get the required resource information. Then, scrun tries to login to scored. After login, scrun becomes a front-end process in order to control job status of the user program running on the cluster. When the user program finishes, scrun also terminates.

Valid arguments to scrun could be SCore options. The options are various resource specifications to SCore-D and/or options for language runtime systems on which user programs rely. In this manual page, only SCore-D options are described. The language system options must be consulted where those systems are installed.

If the first argument of scrun does not begin with the minus (-) character, or the third argument when SCore options are specified, then the next argument must be the filename of the program to be executed on the cluster. The specified executable file is copied and then invoked by scored on all allocated nodes in the cluster. Arguments following the filename are passed to the invocation of the executable file on all nodes.

The executable file must have read permission so that scrun can read the file and copy it to cluster nodes. The file must also be an executable file on the host where scrun is invoked, so that scrun can execute the file to get resource information.

The scrun program can also submit a parallel job to cluster hosts which have a different OS and/or CPU from the host where scrun is invoked. In this case, at least two executable files must be present, one for the scrun local invocation, and another for cluster execution. To allow for this situation, the executable files must be compiled with the SCore smake(1) or Hmake(1) commands (not make or gmake). In this case, the executable file must be a symbolic link to the .wrapper script which will be automatically created by the smake or Hmake command. It is the users responsibility to have consistent heterogeneous executable files compiled from the same source code.

"Cyclic240B" should be obvious to his crowd. But to break it down, "Cyclic" refers to my days as a Machinegunner in the Army. "240B" is a reference to one of the machineguns that I carried, the M240B. So given an M240B, a position about to be overrun that most likely has you at your FPL, or "Final Protective Fire", and a crap load of ammo linked, it is the maximum rate of fire that the weapon is capable of firing with the trigger constantly held back.

You have mulitple rates of fire that the situation usually determines for you. Those being "sustained", "rapid", and "cyclic". An M240B's was/is;

* Sustained: 100 rpm "Normal"
* Rapid: 200 rpm "Contested"
* Cyclic: 650-950 rpm "SHTF"

The 650-950rpm figure of "cyclic" is also based on what the gas regulator on the barrel is set at. The "240" has three settings to compensate for carbon buildup, and the resulting rate of fire slowing down during lots of firing. But given a clean weapon, and putting the knob on the highest setting, that baby will spit out the bullets at 950rpm. But doing so will usually get you a swift kick in the ass by the NCO running the Support by Fire. So when in Rome.....

And there you have it....

Yeah, I had that pretty much figured from the beginning, but sometimes even a shot in the dark hits something. I initially that your name was BigSCRUM. Which knowing you kinda' actually fits. But then I got to thinking your a typical American and don't really know what rugby is much less the scrum so...it all went bad visually from there and I quit thinking about it.

I was a party at the compound (skillets house) like any other party lots of booze lots of people and then there was me! Friends brought some moose jerky from Alaska for us and i got my grub on and a vegan we knew said "How gross" I smiled and she left. As i continued to consume the jerky and drinking my beer I proceeded to the front porch to hang out with the crowd. She (the vegan) turned around and said geez I came out here to get away from that and I for some reason made a loud call of a moose at her and Scrun called out EREX! And we all laughed and from there on Ive been known as Erex...of corse theres a pitch that the guys would joke about id take on anything living with my fal including a T-Rex ha ha and i would still make dinner out of one!
