    A Kreij Mini-Challenge sounds like an epic way to kick off the new pcs being adopted by their new owners! :rockout:

    I remember a prominent folder passed over at overclock and they had a challenge. They gave out his folding profile to the public and almost 300 people from tons of different teams folded for him IIRC. Even people that didn't fold heard about it and folded for a little bit. He became the #2 producer in the world after teamEVGA or whoever is in first place. :p

    I don't do WCG or anything like that (BIONIC projects, whatever it's called) but I'd crunch for a bit under his name.

    Googling "TPU_remembers_Kreij" comes up with page 11 of this thread. If we go through with the mini-challenge idea, the username might catch the attention from other forums/teams. If so, it might be nice to mention the username in the original post as well as give a short summary/memorial as to why we're all rallying here.

    Would prefer if this was limited to TPU members only for right now due to the way I setup the account- If a forum member would like to crunch on that name please PM me or a crunching Team member who is already using the account.

    Thanks for the tip on updating the OP :toast:

    Honestly, I'd like to see everyone in the top 10, no make that top 15, run ALL their crunchers under Kreij's name. I mean honestly, does it really matter who gets the points as long as the points are earned. Besides, let's give someone who has never had PIE and can't afford to build a crunching farm a chance to get a slice.


    BTW, @Norton , you going to PM me that password?

    Three weak PCs and a server in Krej's name.
    Ignore the 24 cores on Fig. That's just <ncpus>. It's really dual socket, dual core, no HT lameness for 4c/4t.

    I got 6c/12t going for Kreij now. Tomorrow I'll assemble to i5 2400 combo I got from CL and get it going under Kreij name, and Sunday, I'll stop by my parent's and set the 860 rig crunching under Kreij's name.

    Hi, I won't be able to participate in any meaningful way on this at the moment, though very proud of everyone so far with this.

    On a personal note, almost lost my sister to cancer some years back but she pulled through. It amazes me how that with a little bit of early detection, cancer of many different types can be virtually stopped and lives saved. Yet in many countries, receiving a cancer scan is an extremely difficult process.
    If there's anything I could support government actually forcing the states/countries into doing, it's provide free scans for it's citizens.

    Any ways keep it up and good luck to everyone.

    Hillsboro, FL? I had no idea you're just down the 95 from me ;) Today was miserable hot, humid, and disgusting so I feel your pain.

    Irregardless, let's challenge it up! :rockout: :rockout:



    Also, tasks are winding down now so I'll have 2 rigs for Kreij by tomorrow afternoon with the 3rd shortly behind that. :)

    Heh, we're all pretty close then. The heat is ridiculous, yes, but I'm still willing to sweat while I sleep for a challenge in Kreij's honor.

    Not really a challenge like we're used to... just consider moving what you're doing currently over to the Kreij account for awhile. This is 100% optional btw

    I completely like the idea and would throw everything I got at it, but.
    May I suggest another "time of honor". Let's keep track of the weather where he lived and every year, when the first frost hits, we crunch for Kreij for (insert time frame here).

    I'll be in once my internet is. :p It's almost 90 here in Alabama (just moved from 115 in Texas) but I'm not home most of the day and the ac keeps it reasonable.

    We can setup our usual Fall or Winter Challenge in his honor for this year and every year thereafter :)

    Those decisions can be made in our planning thread(s) as each challenge gets closer- Thanks for the input! :toast:

    That's awesome to see, and yet it's missing one of my pc's. I added the i7 shortly before your ss so maybe it just hadn't registered yet, but it should be there now :D

    Great work everyone, thanks for all your amazing efforts!

    I am late to the party (as normal). I believe we did this for stanhemi several years ago...
    I will switch the main rig and laptop over once I have the password. Hopefully by the end of this next week I will have the Q6600 rig up and running. I will have it crunching under the TPU_remembers_Kreij account as well.

    For those that were not around when loonym passed away:

    He also started the "WCG Daily Numbers" thread.

    We have lost several TPU members to cancer and other deadly diseases:(
    Gotta love this team:toast:
