    Realized a personal goal today. I made the top 20 daily producers. Yippee for me.

    Doubt I'll get any pie soon, but I have evil plans. :pimp:

    Yep. It's amazing to see how far my 9600GSO has taken me.

    Woot, way to go man! We all have personal goals as well as team goals. So, if you meet one, shout it out!!!!

    P.S. : You guys have done a stellar job of stepping up. HWC has their contest and help from NCIX, but we are still only 100K behind them with just doing what we do every day. Wait until my plans unfurl....;)

    I've upped my search for completing my 2 rigs 'in the works'. This may actually be the time that I stop flipping hardware long enough to have actual concrete machines that I just leave alone! That would give me 3 rigs total running. I may need to get a second renter in my house though to offset costs.

    I assure you, I have furled plans that have yet to be unfurled. Also. Uh... yea.

    The top 10 has 3 people in it that have joined within 1 month. That's a pretty good achievement guys. :toast: Really glad you guys came along when you did. Other than that, it looks like you've solved your problems msgclb, good to see you back up and running.

    We're still cranking out a good 700k PPD guys, but lets see what more we can squeeze out. I'm looking forward to all this unveiling and unfurling and revealing that everyone's dropping hints of.

    At his current rate, I'm going to be adding a million point certificate to Bogmali's stack every 10 days. Your name just keeps popping up everywhere, doesn't it? I guess I'll be seeing your name up here in about 5 days.

    Tonight hertz9753 gets his name featured as he hits the second major step to 1 million, and passes the half way point. Good work on the 500k, now let's if you can set the record for quickest I've seen someone break 1 million.

    With msg solidifying his points standing, he gains back up the rankings and removes all speculation of him being knocked out. Everyone is a returnee tonight snatching another MPA for their personal pile. I'm going to have to figure out what we're doing with these, if anything.

    What do you guys have for ideas? That's a pretty broad question, I'll probably regret asking it.

    I'm limited to 3 rigs right now in my garage due to just having 15A circuits in there:banghead: I'm having them upgrade it to 25A to accomodate 2-3 more rigs:D

    If you can check the guage of the wire you might be able to get away with just upgrading the circuit breaker. If the wire is 12AWG then a 20amp breaker is an easy upgrade. 10AWG is good to 30amps.

    I will and more than likely do it myself if I can figure out the wire gauging part.

    simply changing out the circuit breaker for a 20 amp instead of a 15 amp is a good way to start a fire, especially since you will have a constant load on it. You will almost always find 14/2 used for a 15 amp circuit.

    Most romex made in the last 20 years will have the Guage stamped on it, if the wiring is visible.

    It looks like the last update for the day at EOC will have team TPU hitting the 739,509 mark.

    Oh, everyone is going to get hit by a bat. I'll thwack every last one of ya. I'll be picking up another i7 this weekend, 2 more GTX 260s are on there way back from RMA and then on their way to me. They'll join my 4th and currently idle GTX260 waiting out of system. 3 x 9600 GSOs are heading towards me as well as a 4 PCI-e slot AM3 mobo. I still need one more 9600 GSO, an X58 mobo, an AM3 CPU and an HX1000, but those will be soon enough. I think that should stand to be enough to set me ahead of a fair chunk of you knuckleheads.

    Pie!

    See how I'm in 8th place tonight? Place me firmly behind Bogi in just a few weeks time. Buck won't even be able to see me when he looks back I'll be so close behind Bogi. Bogi's going to think I'm his new Proctologist I'm going to be so far up there. More exaggeration of how much PPD I'll have in reference to being behind Bogi.

    Anyways, I'll be stepping on you on the way past. :p Congrats everyone, as mentioned we got ~740K tonight in numbers, and while HWC brought in 850k tonight, just days ago they were pushing 770k due to various reasons. That's code for 'I have no freaking clue why'. Anyways, we're getting within range, if we keep this up we'll be pushing them back permanently. Good rallying guys.

    Looks good mx500, working well on the way to 4 million. Dusty looks like he's right along with mx500 on the path to another million. EnergyFX is getting ready to prove he's got more certificates in him as he rockets forward to yet another. And of course Dhoshaw is ready to show us 500k tonight, halfway to a cool million. Congrats Dhoshaw, and good pace too. You're rocketing through these towards your own TPU million.

    Nothing too much happening tonight, other than a brutal dissing of Oily perpetrated by mx500. Good show man, give him a kick for me. One day my name will be in lights. Till that day I'm just going to have to stop sneaking MPAs from people that don't check if I missed them. :p

    Anyways, post up more ideas about the use of these. Naked bodies is good, but please specify what you'd like a bit more. I was about to send you some of my albums before I realized that's probably a criminal offense and probably not what you were after.

    Wow:cool: It was 50,944!:)
    I had to start shutting down some cards in the afternoon because it got to damn hot. I probably won't see that again unless it really cools off and the electric bill doesn't bust my budget.

    I'll have to use some of this months change that I get panhandling by the freeway towards another GTX 260.:D

    Me kicking all of your butts would be a much nicer thing when it actually happens, but until then I'll have to suffer through tenth place as even 28k PPD was only just enough to place in the top 10 position.

    But here is an example of how I say we're close to HWC. They slipped up today posting only 756K while we post a total of 710k in the same time stretch. As you can see, there isn't too much more that needs to happen for us to start clawing back our lead. Just a little further guys, keep adding little by little.

    Newtekie is only one of a few to show off such a nice number as he heads past halfway on acquiring another million. No actual milestones posting tonight though and the certificates are shown a night of rest. I doubt it will be empty again Sunday, especially considering the massive amounts of PPD you guys are all outputting. TPU and its members really are making good time and are performing admirably.

    Mike again grabbing himself an MPA tonight, as he sneaks into 10th place in WCG. He joins Oily who earns his MPA today after he trades spots back with mx500 while mx500 misses out. Some good competition forcing names around here, though I can't say I blame you. I too long to taste the MPA, though I'm going to need much more to get into the top 10 in crunching. I've yet to see what average my one quadcore will reach, but I'm certain I'll need a touch more than that to get in. We'll have to see I guess.

    Yeah you will need bigger balls than that to make it to the Top 10 ;)

    I have -
    2x Q6600
    PII 940
    2x Opty's

    All the above crunching and I struggle to make the top 10 sometimes, although maybe not the highest OC on them, and folding on the same rigs, could cut my PPD back a little :ohwell:
