    Now how's a guy supposed to lurk anonymously on the forums if you guys require a PM to ask for the pass code to do the bigadv folding for ChimPowerUp? I mean honestly.

    And furthermore, Fahtracker V2? FAHClient V7? Who's been going around making my F@H easier to install and setup? More importantly, why haven't I been kept in the loop on this. I mean its not like I've been... uh... yea, nevermind.

    So I need the lowdown, could someone summarize these suckers for me please? I've got the console clients right now (and my hardware sadly hasn't changed). Are there PPD advantages to using this new Fahcore? Consider my knowledge of this subject reset and null as I've only been keeping the computers running but not updating myself on the current software. In other words, use smaller words, smile a lot and don't stare at me when I start drooling. That's just rude.


    Also, thanks to the guys for the shout outs during my absence. And msgclb, my child support payments are totally in the mail, I swear it. No really, I owe you for taking care of my baby while I was busy being a deadbeat dad to my poor little Folding Pie thread.

    Holy Cow, This is almost as big as Bin Laden's death. Welcome back my friend!!! There are only core improvements for ATI 5xxx and 6xxx. Things have not changed much since your hiatus. We now have Fahtracker V2, which is an automated app for setting up and monitoring the clients. I believe your clients have the latest cores that you need. Maybe a driver update is all you need. It's good to chat with you again!

    BTW, great work guy's. It looks like ChimPowerUp is bucking for #2 position as of 7:30am EST.

    Well I'm glad I'm not too in the dark then, Fahtracker V2 looks to be awesome, and I've just finished setting up the clients to ChimPowerUp. Sorry for the delay. If you could PM me that bigadv key code I'll get it in place on the CPUs and get cranking. Also, I'll be bringing my third rig back online for this. I haven't seen how its stability is with its SSD but its not overclocked so I don't see why it would crash. I'll be running the F@H clients off of a standard HDD though.

    Switch back to the previous version, this build somehow still has bugs that have not been fixed.

    El Fiendo, welcome back!:cool:

    Hammeron, I'd like to see a HFM.net SS of what you're doing. Don't think I'm the only one.

    Looks like we slipped back to 3rd, its going to be neck and neck with OCN for a little bit.

    I'm trying to find a way to grab a low cost 460 and then possibly expedite my 580 purchase.

    I complied these number from stats.free-dc.org after second (of 4) updates:

    Beavers_Gone_Bananas 92,3 %
    OCNChimpin 76,1
    ChimPowerUp 90,2
    EVGApes 50,4
    maximum_monkey 40,6
    CustomBitChimps 50,3
    Monkey_Bollocks 48,7
    TSCh!mp 47,1
    T32monkeys 44,1

    The numbers show how many procent of the teams output go towards the CC.
    I would add that NCIX who has an "agreement" with the beavers for some reason only are outputting ½ of their normal...wonder where the rest of the points are going....

    Even if we don't win by points we win by commitment. Well done folders (and crunchers) :respect:

    We are extremely close to OCNChimpin. Only .03 points away from them. I gather we will pass them again, and they will then pass us again, and the top three are pretty much set for the next few days. How the Beavers are doing better than everyone else, I have no idea.

    I kinda knew this was going to happen:rolleyes: And I will leave it at that.

    But do not be discouraged as it's too early in the game to call it and our -bigadv's have not landed.

    And the fact that we're head to head with OCN and ahead of EVGA (the big boys) is already quite an accomplishment this early.

    Both you and Buck hinted it at earlier and we knew that they would be doing better than anyone else. Anyway, it looks like we have a good slope going and COULD catch up if we keep up the good work.

    Just dumped a -bigadv and another 2 due in the next 8 hours :D

    I have to agree... for a small team we are still one to be reckoned with, and we are doing an amazing job this year beating the big teams.

    After day 1 we are in third place. Good job so far everyone. When the -bigadv stuff hits the game will change though! Looks like both OCNChimpin and ourselves might catch up to the Beavers, just a matter of time. Going to be a tight race.
