    I can stay strong for the people who were even closer to him ( ie: his kids ) but when you are alone at home, it's hard to not think of all the good moments, and realize that they won't happen again with him... :(

    I am a pretty "sensitive" guy apparently :p like right now I'm holding back tears cuz I gotta go see my family and I'm trying to evacuate sad thoughts... anyways gtg

    I noticed his PPD dropped dramatically once he hit 4 million points. My sempron 3000 is still working for him, but that's all I have. I took down my server and put a much weaker machine there; I feel it's not even worth running WCG on (Pentium 3 750MHz). My dual core is helping people out with the contest, not sure what it will be doing after that's over. I might put it back in my name, or it might to to Stan.

    Yeah a lot of people have pulled their rigs. I think we proved a point here, a point I don't think has ever been proven on any other team. I think the job here is done, I just wish we got some news on Stanley. :(

    I think we made a very noticeable impression, I just agree with CP, I'd really like to hear something from him.

    i feel bad for pulling my machines. but it was hard to keep up with the heat and the bills. it was a pretty good farm. but he climbed high and we showed everyone including him what kind of team we are. I could care less about the compitition i havent posted in these sub forums forever. but i still fold. as long as he understands and appreciates whay message we were sending him. thats all that ever mattered to me.

    I also feel sorta bad about it, but I don't crunch for myself now either. I've had to cease all DC operations on my rig due to power usage

    Guys you shouldn't feel wrong at all, like I said a point never proven before has been proven here and we should be extra extra super super proud about what we have done. Great if we keep crunching for him but no need to feel bad if you don't. At the end of the day we are still crunching. What matters to me the most right now is hearing from him and I just have no luck with that!

    Very well said. We have done what we can, and shown that we can do something likely no other team has

    I'm going to put my rigs back under my name, sorry guys. Fantastic that we managed to get 4 million points and I hope to hear from stan soon. I hope he's still ok.

    Everytime I see this thread pop up in subscriptions, I get my hopes up that Stan popped in for an update. :(

    Also, I do feel bad for not being able to crunch for Stan.

    At any rate, I think I'm gonna unsubscribe from this thread. Would someone be able to PM me if we hear from Stan?
