    Hope that didn't sound un-human.

    My GF G'Ma passed away and I was going for support. I don't even know the whole family and it was really weird being there.

    But yeah, folding all day!

    No, I just had a moment where I went to thank you and asked myself would it seem like I was thanking the folding or the funeral?

    Anyways, high fives for folding!

    Both? Neither are things we want to do, nor are they things we HAVE to do, but they are things we do to demonstrate our humanity.

    Oh very true, and Castiel good show for manning up and doing it.

    I was afraid I'd appear thankful that the funeral was happening (thus allowing him to fold) is what I meant. :laugh:

    Hi,

    I was about to tell El that it looks like fall is here and that I'm back, but he's already changed my status.:eek: But, I also have a new toy:

    9600GSO's have been so underated. I have 12 that account for 51,600 of my daily points. They accept a heavy overclock and still run cool regardless of how I abuse them.

    Its too bad, he had just spiked up to an astounding 60k PPD. Those kinds of numbers do end up costing though. Low power 9600 GSOs x 10 are your friend.

    you guys want to produce some more ppd here is a quick trick...if your worried about heat with the nvidia series..or instability clock the shaders...thats the secret..in my oc experience with nvidia cards the shaders easily do 200mhz over stock..that and thats what matters in F@H not so much the core...when you oc the shaders the heat output is only a degree or so over what you already run...and its good for a couple k PPD weather it be a day or in the total at the end of the week. shaders are were its at. just a tip for those that didnt know

    Mine was $571.00 last month and will prob be more this month:shadedshu. I'll have to cut back someday, as I cannot keep dishing out this kinda cash. Looks like Bogmali will be king someday;).

    Bout time i made an appearence on this thread i think - Ive been folding for at least a year or so pretty much non stop on my Core Duo T2300 laptop. I was almost top 10 - then CUDA was released, gained popularity & I was slowly pushed down to under 100 (LOL) but my laptops pretty much folding 24/7 - I might not be as fast as SLI with CUDA but Ive been folding persistantly so should have decent scores.

    So - still alive & well. maybe I will transfer my folding to a more powerful rig at a later date.

    plodding along ftw

    From the "crazy" folders, to the mid-pack guys, to the guy doing 300 PPD on a laptop, it's all good. :toast:

    I I still had my 8800GTS 512 Mb I might have made a spare rig & thrown that on - but unfortunately, I sold it. & every one knows that ATi cards suck donkey cock for folding, so Im not gonna waste my time with that.
