    Well said msgclb. Got 2 more bigadvs dropping in the next 2-4 hours. But the GPU's seem to be what keep us steady :rockout:

    From the Chim Challenge 2011 page at HWC

    As a result of an unexpected large increase in contribution to teams participating in the challenge, from affiliates or teams not directly involved in the challenge, adjustments to the points calculation have been made.

    This adjustment is directly in line with the increased contribution, and serves to put all teams on a level playing field.

    We hope you continue to enjoy the Chimp Challenge.

    But what are the new rules / calculation methods?

    Well I can't comment on the details since I don't know what was decided in the captain's meeting, but from what I understand the HWC+NCIX score was adjusted to reflect the actual HWC contribution.

    That leaves the field looking like this:

    EDIT: Forgot to include the legend, but it's essentialy:
    1)HWC
    2)OCN
    3)TPU

    Stupid question - I can calculated it myself_

    HWC before 232,244 = 1 Chimp Point, now 302,000
    TPU before 217,346 = 1 Chimp Point, now 217,346 and so on

    We really need to ramp up to get closer though.

    Anybody know who MetalTom is in our team? He's got like 50K PPD which would come in handy under the CC name

    My WU completed this morning and is working on another.

    Is an E7200 and a green 9800 GT a worthwhile addition?

    the 9800GT should be able to give a little more than 4K PPD if I remember correctly. Not sure about the E7200 but my E6300@3.5 is about 3K PPD

    Cameljock(Johnspack) has 1 rig under ChimPowerUp and 1 rig under his name.

    SneekyPeet has a GTX470 Folding under his name and 2xGTX470 under ChimPowerUp.

    DustyShiv has moved his cards over to ChimPowerUp. He may still have a straggler.

    I pm'd Niko044, Vanyots, &Newtekie1 and I have gotten no response. I have no idea who MetalTom is???
