    So I don't know about you guys but I like to keep up on things, and release little tidbits and spoilers before a plan comes into fruition. So I've decided this thread might be appreciated by myself and a few others. Its basically going to be a compendium of information, which might be a big undertaking. Keeping the first post updated? Gnarly.

    I'm going to need your help on this, so post up anything and everything you want. It might be worth mentioning that anything said is in no way meant to be any sort of shot. Its either my unique sense of humor or my ignorance to your situation. If something is wrong, please let me know and I'll fix it right up

    0 Name F@H Name Current Status Notes
    1
    2 123bob Inactive Traveled on through and did some work in the kitchen while staying here. Maybe one day we can get him back cooking for 50711.
    3
    4 [Ion] iFx Active After a little shuffling of the cards, he ends up with an 8800GT smashing down doors. I remember my G80 card. I also remember that I meant to bake it in the oven to see if I could revive it. Hmm...
    5
    6 [I.R.A]_FBi Hiatus Tragedy has struck his video card with malice. It's been forever stamped out of this plane of existance.
    7
    8 A_Cheese_Danish Active While restricted to just a GPU client until the bugs are worked out, ACD does his best to lunge at the throat of any Canadian he sees. Unfortunately we'd rather he just folded for us instead of committing murder in our name as well, but beggars can't be choosers.
    9
    10 AphexDreamer Skotosa Active Joining our ranks and swelling our numbers. Onward against the Canucks!
    11
    12 Arrakis Hiatus After an initial burst that looked close to top 20 material, his rigs fell dormant. We still keep an ear in his direction, should we ever hear from him again. I suspect he was assassinated.
    13
    14 AthlonX2 Hiatus The last we heard from AthlonX2, he'd just tacked up some numbers that would make all but our top 10 fearful. Alas, we've yet to see him again. I suspect foul play here. Because paranoia is a way of life.
    15
    16 Beertintedgoggles Active Something did blow up in the man's house. After a successful move he's now stepped back into the fray looking for pie.
    17
    18 Birdman86 Hiatus Ninjas got him!
    19
    20 bogmali Active Battling oppression, this valiant folder fights onward and upward! Totally a role model or something.
    21
    22 Buck_Nasty Active I imagine that Buck would be out fighting crime in the streets wearing his underwear outside his pants, if it weren't for F@H. I could try and justify why I think this, but I'd probably make it worse.
    23
    24 Castiel Hiatus Forces of untold power have smote him off the earth! Or maybe its another reason. I tend to like my reasons better though.
    25
    26 crazyeyesreaper Hiatus Unbeknown horrors have fallen upon the man, suffocating his folding efforts. Possibly harpies. You gotta watch them harpies.
    27
    28 Dadi_oh Hiatus I believe he was retired temporarily due to heat or monetary reasons.
    29
    30 DanishDevil Intermittent Issues Intermittent issues is the proper way of saying 'his cards are broke as hell'. Hopefully you'll have a swift RMA.
    31
    32 dank1983man420 Active Though not the most frequent on the forums, he sure can fold the crap out of them work units.
    33
    34 DanMiner Active I've seen him now! And he still is pushing close to the top 10. Snazzy.
    35
    36 dhoshaw Active A temporary teammate from PNY folds to help get us some breathing room from HWC. Coincidentally also a Canuck and former HWC team member. :toast: To you man.
    37
    38 driver66 Hiatus He reports that he's bringing it back online after a work caused hiatus. We hope to see you soon.
    39
    40 El_Fiendo Active Folding on an i7 rig and a Phenom II rig. 7 Gpus of total sexiness and an i7 earn the daily intake.
    41
    42 EnergyFX Active Unhiatused! Take that, Oxford English Dictionary.
    43
    44 Fitseries3 Retired He's off to find other pastures. If I were him I'd visit the strip clubs while I was there. I hear its '5 for a buck', but I can't figure out what you'd get 5 of for a buck, or if I'd want it.
    45
    46 FreedomEclipse Active Pimping out some of his laptop's horsepower to the folding team.
    47
    48 Giggla blackdemon Hiatus Possibly fell into a large industrial vat of boiling hot acid. even though it doesn't need to be boiling because its freakin' acid.
    49
    50 hat Active Tamed his wild 9600GSO and sets it to work when idle. Deciding that wasn't enough, he drafted a Pentium 3 750MHz into service.
    51
    52 hertz9753 Active Big guns a brandished, this boy is packing dual GTX 275s, a GTX 260 and a PS3 just for good measure. Crazy mofo's going to the top. And then there was more! Having just added a second GTX 260 and an 8800GT, this folder aims high and hits hard.
    53
    54 Jizzler Active Bringing the power of Linux and Mac OS to fold.
    55
    56 johnspack CamelJock Intermittent Issues He folds on what he has left, but his GTX 280 has cratered on him again. It makes me wonder how long until it happens to me. Hope for a speedy RMA.
    57
    58 King_Wookie Active Now racing out of the gates down the folding track. He's recently got his badge and now stands at the daunting road to 1 million. Don't worry, you'll get there before you know it.
    59
    60 Kursah Hiatus Retired for the summer due to overheating concerns.
    61
    62 Kyle2020_And_MoonPig Hiatus Their combined effort cut short, each for their own reasons. Perhaps in time they'll come to ravage work units some more, but until then they lay dormant.
    63
    64 Lampmaster Active Moving in to top spots, questing after the glorious top 10.
    65
    66 msgclb Active Downloading WUs and folding proteins, at his full strength I believe.
    67
    68 mike047 Active He's BACK! My ego demanded it.
    69
    70 mmaakk Hiatus Straight up hiatus now, hope to hear from him soon.
    71
    72 mx500torid Active Folder's Billitisbe damned, he's stepped it back up again reaching lofty numbers such as 60k+.
    73
    74 NastyHabits Active Added a GTS 250 to the mix, folding alongside a 4850 for great PPD justice! Adding more once a motherboard sent from the north crosses his doorstep.
    75
    76 newtekie1 Active Adding video cards for starters, and bringing his SMP blasters to bear. Looking to perforate some Canucks. Please not me.
    77
    78 Oily_17 Active Probably safe to say that he's completed his K9A2 folding upgrade considering his points are ever increasing.
    79
    80 Papahyooie Active Folding onward, stabbing proteins with fiery folding action. Day in. Day out.
    81
    82 Paulieg Active Folding here, 3 x GTX 260s strong. With hardware like that, you should be earning MPAs in no time.
    83
    84 pepsi71ocean Active Folding when the bills allow. Recently saw a nice little PPD spike. Upgrade perhaps? Or maybe a little F@H overtime.
    85
    86 PVTCaboose1337 Intermittent Issues College combined with power outages keeps his folding efforts at bay, though he sets his clients right when he gets the chance.
    87
    88 rangerone766 Hiatus Has been slain by unknown forces. If you need a hand with anything at all, hit me up via PM. I've got some replacement parts I'll cut you deals on or just knowledge I'll throw at any situation.
    89
    90 ShiBDiB Intermittent Issues Working on conquering his troublesome CPU, and GPU as well it seems. If you need help hit me up via PM. See above.
    91
    92 sneekypeet Active Chimp-assassinating genetic diseases. One WU at a time. Past few days seems to have seen a step up of PPD. Good show. :toast:
    93
    94 Solaris17 Intermittent Issues I may have missed it, but it would appear Solaris has encountered some phantom issues. Gremlins plague my machine as well.
    95
    96 stanhemi Hiatus Bankruptcy and hardware failures are keeping him at bay. ... For now.
    97
    98 Steevo1 Active Has just added back in an additional 5 SMP clients.
    99
    100 TechPowerUp! Inactive Retired.
    101
    102 thebluebumblebee Active Unsuffering from the effects of summer. Welcome back.
    103
    104 theonedub Active First came a 9800GTX+. Then he busted out a wicked GTX 260. Now he can be found clubbing work units in the face with a sexy and sleek GTX 275.

    Updated!

    I edited out the current rank because honestly, those change too often for newer members and they're already documented on a different site. I can put them back in and update them, or it can stay as is. What do you guys think?

    Maybe alphabetical...

    Wow man, you're still folding even though you need to go into bankruptcy? That earned you something special in the notes simply because of your kickass spirit.

    Edited it to alphabetical to see if it looks good.

    No worries, nobody will judge. And if they do I'll have Bogi break their knee caps with a tire iron. I envy the 'loooong' part of that vacation though. It sounds nice.

    My folding is on hiatus, as the ATI client has a habit of shutting down my gfx card, and doesn't play nice with other software on my pc.

    The final straw was when I found my anti virus kept being disabled. Since I shut down the folding, no more issues.

    Sorry guys. :banghead:

    Updated! Thanks for the info.

    A reminder this isn't meant to be anything for us to get mad at you. Any donation you can muster is one that we appreciate. No one has to worry about apologizing. Don Buck might send Bogmali and myself after should you not make your 'insurance' payments though, so no one be late on that.

    ~16-17k coming online? 6kish average for GTS 250s and 4-5k from an 8800gt? Is this on top of what you're making already? If so, very nice. We'll be seeing you near the top of the producer list daily.

    SMP clients on a Mac Pro 2Ghz x 4C, and E6300/ubuntu box.

    Got a lot of CPUs, but barely any suitable GPUs, so most of them have been set to CRUNCH, except for my Linux/OSX boxes.

    Just got my newly acquired 9600GSO Folding.

    My PS3 will fold on cool nights 1-2x a week and the 9600 will fold 24/7 until the temps get back up to 104+

    Not a big contribution but it helps.

    looking into your Optie but not sure how much of an improvement it would be over a 2.8Ghz X2.

    Oh, I am not too sure about the improvement there either. When I tested it out it sure felt faster than the 3800x2 I was comparing it against. I would drop the price more for a Cruncher too. Back to topic :D

    Hey Flyordie, what's your F@H name?

    I think I'm going to update the chart to include Forum Name vs Folding name. Most times it will be the same but it can also help in the times when its not.

    Also, ShibDib, something is really wrong if your GTX280 only gets you 500PPD. Have you tried it on the K9A2 board? Your P35 might be throttling it due to hardware limitations or you might have faulty hardware issues.
