On hold for a day or two while my computer gets serviced.
What need to be fixed?
My new (used) graphics card died.

The Division 3, 4 and 5 tournaments are affected.
All of the gauntlets running on my other computers are still going. :)

Yeah - I'm looking forward to Monday too.

My other computers and broadcasts are still running, but the one in for repair is the one I use as my main machine.

Not to sound rude Graham but your main machine is quite aged by now. Isn't it about time to consider something more newer. I admit i have several machines running in paralell one using LGA 775 but they're all dedicated to stockfish testing framework. For individual engine games i usually always prefer my main machine for that.

Q9650 4-core | No overclock | Motherboard does not support it.
Old school laptop | AMD P320 Dual-Core | Status retired.
Two identical laptops | i5-5200U | 2-Core
2700K 4-core | 4.5GHz OC | replaced my good 'ol 2500K from 2012.
4770K 4-core | 4.5GHz OC |
4790K 4-core | 4.5GHz OC
5960X 8-core | 4.5GHz OC

You're very fortunate. :)
We're a one income family, so can't really afford too many luxuries. Just the way it is.
