    Now some of you may be here because you wanted to see me attempt to fold pie. If there is enough of a request for it, I'll see what I can do later.

    But for the rest of you who've yearned for pie, this is for you. The rest who've watched for months as WCG brethren have lavishly tossed about pie, this is for you. The rest who for whatever reason maybe aren't as powerful CPU wise, but wipe the floor up when it comes to GPU, this is for YOU. No longer will we remain feeling unimportant. NO LONGER will we bow down to the WCG team. We shall have our day. WE SHALL HAVE OUR PIE!

    And Milestones. In an effort to save space I'm posting both of these together. Now this is going to be a bit of an undertaking as well, so I may need to grab a hand now and again keeping this going.

    So now you're thinking 'well this is a blatant rip off of the WCG team and their threads'. To you naysayers I say "Your IP, location and username has been logged. Be prepared for termination."

    Also, I offer something special, something unique. I'll be watching the WCG thread for its pie winners. And if you happen to win 1 pie here and 1 pie there on the same day then something magnificent will happen. You will hear a 'bleep bloop' and see a pop-up. You'll earn the soon to be coveted Multi Pie Achievement! Also, if you'd rather hear an announcer voice screaming MULTI PIE in Quake-ish or UT-ish fashion, or hear anything other than 'bleep bloop', you're SOL. You may not even hear 'bleep bloop'. But I'll be saying it.

    I'll keep track of Multi Pie Achievements in a table here. I might repost the standings at the end of each month. What does it mean? So far, nothing. It could lead to something in the future though. Oh, and you can earn 1 daily and there is no limit to the amount handed out. We could potentially have 10 MPAs (new term!) handed out each day.

    I'm going to post the certificates for the following milestones (to save from a cluttered thread of posting up every 10000 points).

    10k, 25k, 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k, 1 million, and every successive million

    If during the day you guys want to check for pie and your status yourself, here's a link.

    Dude-My head hurts trying to understand/comprehend what you just wrote:banghead: but that pie link made me :twitch: (Pecan Pies own me :laugh:). Is this your way of getting back at us for not getting some pie over at WCG:confused::wtf:

    Kidding aside, it will be nice to see something like the WCG has:D

    I'll put down the bottle long enough tomorrow. Bogmali, feel free to ridicule me with smilies.

    Oh, and its in no way getting back because it rewards people who do both. How exactly has yet to be determined.

    PIE!
    [​IMG]

    Pie you shall have Oily, bringing in what looks like rhubarb pie. Beertintedgoggles you have cigarette butt pie. Enjoy. Buck, you need to go on a diet, that much pie can't be good. Bogi, you're just greedy.

    That's what we need to boost right there. Bogmali, you're right. That Pecan pie looks amazing on there. Pumpkin pie too. In fact, I'd take it all.

    I only had just found it when I suggested a thread about it. I was amazed that I'd never seen a thing on it.

    Sorry for the double post.

    PIE

    [​IMG]

    This is a perfect example of why I feel guilty when I game. PPD goes right down. Its cool. I got to try some lemon pie, but I'll be taking my blueberry back tomorrow. One day I'll have Bogi's key lime pie. Congratulations to Johnspack on nabbing 10th place pie though.

    I'm seeing a pattern. This might have to not mean anything for awhile. Interesting note though. Dusty lost an MPA chance today due to a resurgance from... Johnspack?

    Damn, thanks for the heads up. He's actually already passed the big number so once Stanford is done their update, I'll snag the picture this afternoon. If I wait till tonight it might have some cock eyed number on the end of it and not look as pretty.

    I'd have probably missed it till tonight, good eye.

    Edit: Snagged it.

    Pie! Oh wait

    I seem to have missed the bloody update by minutes.:shadedshu Don't get it, I've posted later than this and it was the same day. Good news is, I got the wasps. The only thing missing will be the lovely pie picture. But I assure you, Bogmali dominated me. Thoroughly. And Buck the both of us. From there on was pies of assorted type and flavor for Oily_17, mx500torid, dank1983man420, mike047 to Beertintedgoggles, msgclb and Dustyshiv.

    Sorry guys. The MPAs are handed out to everyone who's won prior. They all made it today by the numbers.

    Also, how come no one has requested to see me fold pie? I personally think that'd be an amazing sight.

    Pic for tastiness!

    Now this one is a bit odd. A very nice Milestone for Papahyooie, but a tremendous one hit today. Sorry to overshadow your milestone Papahyooie. Problem is Free DC isn't reporting him that high in points, even though Stanford said he achieved the milestone around 12 hours ago.

    What am I talking about? This:

    Congratulations Buck, most people can only dream of such numbers. Thank you for current and continued contribution.:toast:

    The Free-DC folding stats failed to update today. Free-DC showed Buck_Nasty stuck at 19,988,659 points while my research shows him at least at 20,061,172.

    Here's the top 10 using www.xcpus.com at about 10:30 PM CST.

    Correction: I just realized my original image was not sorted for points today.
    [​IMG]

    And here Free-DC update as of 11:50 PM CST, the same as 07:50 AM.

    Ah, so I didn't actually miss the pie. I actually had the right day that failed to update. I was good and confused for a little bit there.

    Bogi, that quote fits you.

    Oily swooping in and taking a delectable MPA today. Congrats Oily.


    Today, when asked about his recent milestone, Buck Nasty is quoted as saying "It's not enough". He then started to punch people in their lymph nodes in an effort to combat lymphoma directly. No word as of yet on how successful he's been.

    In other, unrelated, news violent lymph node punchings have seen a dramatic rise in South Florida recently, and authorities are baffled as to why.

    I love this. I can catch up on the latest F@H Pie and get a good chuckle out of El Fiendo's twisted sense of humor. This Team is great! BTW, Green Bean & Mushroom Pie? WTF?

    Congrats to Lampmaster for coming out of the gate strong and sitting comfortably @ lucky#13 in PPD.
