    I'm down with this plan. At the very least we all take top spot over Buck, and the lady folk that the prestige comes with. At the most we gain international notoriety for being the team that has the legendary Voltron Force folding for them. Not even Zarkon, Witch Haggar or Lotor themselves would be able to stop us.

    That's what I like to hear! Welcome back. :toast:

    Sorry guys, but Free-DC decided to be jerks and not update all day. As such I can't even fake pie to you guys tonight. Although its probably a good thing for me, as you can see I got booted from the top 10. In fact I've dropped in PPD and will likely lose my Crazy Folder badge for the next few days. Damn addictive graphical button thingers.

    Regarding our sudden PPD drop on EoC stats today, it would seem that the last update was missed on alot of teams. HWC is still beneath us, though they only cleared 20k less than us today.


    Milestones

    Well, without an updating website I don't have a ready made list of these. To anyone that may have been missed, here's a :toast: to you and a sorry. Also, I welcome anyone whose crossed a milestone that gets missed here to post it on up.

    I'm going to make an executive decision and still hand you guys out your hard earned MPAs. I just worked off the Kakao stats screenshot above. As can be seen, nothing too shocking happened anyways. While the WCG team still makes off with pie, it looks like the MPA guys are the only guys on this team getting any pie tonight.

    I have two rigs down ATM and that is why my production dipped below 100K, should be back up today.

    Oh man you must be experiencing a double effect. First you come around smelling like sprayed on chocolate, and then you drop your massive points wang. I imagine the girls all melt.

    I'll be dropping off for a few days as I move... but I expect to come back a K or two PPD stronger. We'll see.

    I want my "crazy" status back! Mah badge be neked!

    If you stay at lowered PPD though, you should qualify for the folding / crunching contest that has just been announced here. As it stands you'd be ineligible at full production. I won't tell anyone though, our secret.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    So with the big news about a cross team contest being announced, we may well be faced with a shift in names and a surge of members. I can only hope so, because there's constant rumblings up north of a comeback and another contest. On top of that we've moved up to 51st place and are now facing 1.7 months before we slide into 50th place. I for one am a touch impatient at times and would like to carve that number down. Unfortunately, my hands are tied in upping that total as my builds are halted while I construct additional pylons. So I'm just going to get someone to crack the e-whip!

    [​IMG]

    You have no idea how hard it was to find a photo that was non pornographic, not covered in watermarks and somewhat attractive. Of course I did Google search 'women with whips' without safe search. I guess I was kinda asking for it.


    Milestones

    3dsage passes 5,000
    bogmali passes 9,000,000
    btarunr passes 60,000
    BundyR passes 100,000
    Castiel passes 4,000
    dhoshaw passes 800,000
    EnergyFX passes 700,000
    hertz9753 passes 1,000,000
    Homeless passes 550,000
    JrRacinFan passes 30,000
    Maikel205 passes 50,000
    Mike0409 passes 4,000
    mx500torid passes 4,000,000
    NastyHabits passes 350,000
    Peejay passes 7,000

    Ok, well it looks like we have 5 again. So, without further blathering:

    First we've got Maikel205 hitting the halfway point to his badge with his first 50k. Joining him is Bundy (of the Rum & Coke fame I believe) who crosses the 100k barrier and earns himself his folding badge as well tonight. Congrats you two.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Next up we have Hertz9753 hitting a beautiful 1 million points today, after just 1 month of folding for us. He's actually accumulating well over 3 million points now, though his 1 million with TPU will technically earn him a folding badge upgrade. However with a PPD as high as his, Crazy Folder seems to fit so much better.

    [​IMG]

    Joining one F@H Millionaire, are two other millionaires adding a little extra padding around their PPD pile. Bogmali cracks 9 million and stands very short of breaking into 10 million and win. Meanwhile mx500 boasts 4 million points as he technically moves up a folding badge. However, due to Folding Dementia like Hertz before him, he keeps his Crazy Folder badge. If you guys are anything like me you'll get a metal cutout of that phrase plated in white gold and hang it around your neck at all times.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    EDIT: For simplicity we'll blame it on my simplicity. Congrats Ion on hitting the 10k mark!

    Oof, well I guess it doesn't pay off to be earning MPAs tonight in light of that contest. Don't worry guys, I haven't forgotten your carnal urges for goodies. I'm thinking, if I can get the prizes, that in a few months time when the current contest wraps up, I'll get one launched available to all members. My idea involves a contest / raffle where the MPAs are 'redeemable' in a sense. One thing at a time though. :laugh:

    Fold and crunch for that prize guys, I'm eager to see who gets that little puppy.

    Hmm, I'm still not sure how Free-DC updates. It seems to have a rolling time less than 24h, but I guess it (and I) missed you on the update. I'm sorry, but here's your certificate. :toast:

    [​IMG]

    Oh, and I edited up above.

    Also, as of last night I passed 100k Boinc points and earned my Cruncher badge! High five to myself!

    Oh, and something a little saucier for Mike.

    Heh, well I think I could use the warming up more but I'm willing to share. We got our first dump of snow yesterday and there's more on the way. Winter is starting on time this year, we usually skip fall around here.

    I'll try to post up the numbers... but I don't want to be in the competition. I'd rather see an aspiring DC trooper win the prize. I can hold my own with what I have and have more hardware inbound.

    By the time I'm done... I'll mop the floor with you in folding!!! Even with the phantom "big plans" of yours. :)

    Oi, until your phantom rig comes together I'm mopping the floor with you. :p Though I will say I didn't expect the waiting period on some of the i7 rig parts. If I can ever find an AM3 quad processor for less than new prices I'll be able to get a 9600GSO farm up and going. But of course, its just good intentions until then. :laugh:


    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    I successfully shook a stick at 3 other top 10 regulars and managed to fend them off. Though with all this increasing competition, I'm sure there will be more days I'm bounced out of the top 10. Hopefully this folding contest really stirs things up.


    Milestones

    3dsage passed 7,000
    btarunr passed 70,000
    Dustyshiv passed 1,900,000
    everydayiloveu passed 70,000
    fullinfusion passed 200
    GilbertQC passed 950,000
    Mike0409 passed 6,000
    Peejay passed 10,000
    Solaris17 passed 900,000

    Looks to me like there are a few millionaires that are about to roll over in the coming weeks. However tonight we have a new member, Peejay whos just started 3 days ago and has just hit 10k. Assuming a continued rate of 7k per day you should have your folding badge within another 12 days or so. Pretty good for having just joined both folding and WCG. Thanks man, hope to hear from you.

    Sorry this is a little rushed tonight. I just found out that I have a wedding to attend to tomorrow morning. So I unfortunately won't be able to add up any update tomorrow night either. If someone can snag the pie, as that's the only thing time specific, then I'll flesh it out Sunday when I'm recovering.

    Phew, ok this should equal the last of the holiday programming and we should be back to the regularly scheduled programming tonight.

    Edit: Thanks for the catch again Msg. I'll see about getting myself one of them newfangled smart phones so I don't have the issue of dashing away from my computer last minute. I'm not sure how much image copying and pasting I'd be likely to do though on them, they don't seem the most conducive to typing.

    You know Bogi, you've got to be the first person to ever tell me I party too much. Usually people just tell me I have a crazy schedule and its going to ruin me.

    I did catch the HWC postings, I'm usually over there poking buttons or helping out. Hopefully they at least listen to the helping out part. Though I admit probably around 70% of my postings would be best ignored. :laugh:

    Oh Bogi, you can't get my panties in a twist. I'm not wearing any.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    Well, Dusty makes a play for 10th place tonight. It's too early too tell but it looks like he may have added more PPD in recent days. It'd be one part of a much larger boost we've seen so far, as today saw us reach upwards of 838k. I'm going to put another challenge out there, considering how well you guys have handled the ones we've had so far. The challenge seems well within grasp, so let's see if we can earn ourselves an average PPD of 1,000,000. With this contest coming up, now would be the likely time we'd see it. Besides, breaking 1 million points a day would help us achieve the top 50 teams much faster so it makes sense anyways. I for one am eager to see the limits of our rallied might.


    Milestones

    btarunr passed 100,000

    pingwei passed 2,000
    Supreme0verlord passed 9,000

    One of our most recent members is already 1/4 of the way to his folding badge. With output like this, Peejay will also have little trouble qualifying for the F@H side of the contest. Joining Peejay, is Btarunr who crosses 100,000 and earns himself his first folding badge as well tonight. Good work guys. :toast:

    As mentioned, Dusty steps in and claims himself a piece of pie tonight. I hope to see new names up here though with the coming of this contest. So far both teams have started seeing a spike in numbers, and at least a few of them could have MPA capability.
