    Well, I must admit I did a double take when I saw EoC today. But it appears that 12am just didn't update with any points. We'll likely see a large spike tomorrow. This is just below where we expect to be operating in a few days when Buck drops off the PPD for a few days. However I feel that we will have gained enough members that a fair chunk of Buck's absence won't be noticed. I also highly doubt HWC will be able to so much as come within spitting distance, should they gain any ground at all. We've proven our strength TPU, now lets prove our resolve.

    I'm sorry I had to. I know that was completely action movie cliche. I mean we're talking Steven Seagal style action movie cliche. But the dramatic music was playing man, and the scene needed an ending.


    Milestones

    bogmali passed 9,500,000
    caramsey passed 7,000
    dhoshaw passed 900,000
    Jstn7477 passed 10,000
    kenny21 passed 500
    Laurijan passed 2,000
    LightofHonor passed 350,000
    Mad85x passed 25,000
    nflesher87 passed 10,000
    Peejay passed 30,000
    skotosa passed 100,000
    Solaris17 passed 950,000

    Another couple of recruits hit their first milestone tonight, while another fresh recruit skips straight forward to his 25k milestone having hit both in one Free-DC day. Judging by all of their PPD, they'll be hitting more milestones soon, and earning a folding badge not too long after that. On top of that we have AphexDreamer earning his stripes and his 100k milestone. Congrats to Jstn7477, nflesher87, Mad85x and Skotosa (AphexDreamer). :toast:

    One day my sweet MPA, I shall possess you. For now I will have to live everyday in shame, envious of those that win it so well. Though it shows you the dedication these guys here possess. Bogmali alone defies limits of how much silicon one man can legally possess.

    It's a little tough to say just how much of our PPD was leftover from yesterday. But it never gets old going to EoC stats now though. Seeing that upward inclined graph, our team's rank and our frequent smashing of old records really are great things to see. Our average has yet to catch up to us in the mid 800k PPD range, and as such it reports we have 1.4 months until we break the top 50. We're probably looking at closer to 1 month at our current rate. However I think we've only seen the tip of the iceberg.

    Oh, and Bump the crap out of the contest threads everyone. Ok, well at least converse there. That will get the contest out to the most people and give us the most chance to get recruits. Perhaps we should Btarunr do a followup newspost at say 20 days in, to remind people its not too late.


    Milestones

    A_Cheese_Danish passed 150,000
    Breit passed 1,000
    Castiel passed 6,000
    deathmore passed 500,000
    Dustyshiv passed 2,000,000
    EsVu passed 200
    hertz9753 passed 1,200,000
    kenny21 passed 4,000
    Kenshai passed 2,000
    Laurijan passed 7,000
    Maikel205 passed 60,000
    nflesher87 passed 25,000
    Nosada passed 70,000
    PerraCash passed 1,000
    PhxProvost passed 2,000


    One day after earning his first milestone, nflesher steps up to 25k with ease. At this pace he'll have his badge in no time. Speaking of badges, Dustyshiv should've just earned himself a new badge as he passes 2 million. Rounding out the numbers tonight is Deathmore who is halfway on the road to one million. Shouldn't be too much longer before he gets his own badge upgrade. Good work guys.

    It's quiet again on the MPA competition front. Everyone you see here is lining up like they're at the soup kitchen when I hand these out. They need the competition, otherwise they'll just keep making out like bandits. I know some of those WCG crunchers could give some of the top 10 folders a run for their money.

    They've taken notice to Buck's absence and posted it up on their forums. They think that this is the time that'll they make a huge gain on us. Sadly, even though they outscored us yesterday, it would seem they stumbled off the block as they only beat us by a meager 14k. Guess we'll just have to weather this storm until Buck makes it back in, though really we seem to be doing more than fine as is. The only real difference is we'd be 19th in the world overall instead of around 14th or 15th.

    This past 50 places has flown by as well, I remember when we were first cracking into the top 100. It wasn't that long ago. Great work guys.

    Another 4 earning some recognition tonight, firstly Supreme0verlord as he passes his first 10k with the team. Next we have Solaris, who earns himself not only a 1 million point certificate to hang on his wall, but a shiny new forum badge that shows just how pimpin' he is. Moving on up we have JrRacinFan cracking the whip on cancer as he pushes past 50k, and lastly we have AthlonX2 crossing the halfway mark to in his attempt match Solaris's pimp levels. I'm not sure who'd win in a duel but my guts telling me Solaris. Sorry Athlon.

    So, we're not bursting into flames yet, which pretty much means HWC's hope of capitalizing on Buck's absence is going up in smoke. Sure they beat us by about 70k today, but today also saw technical difficulties from a few of our other members that had them earning reduced PPD. As such, HWC's gain over us is over-hyped.

    On top of that, we're all still adding more points every day. For instance, this weekend I'll be building my new Phenom II rig, and with the two extra 9600 GSOs I've bought tonight I'll now be able to populate 4 PCI-e slots with folding goodness. I don't think HWC thought we were ever going to be this much of a challenge, but they haven't given up yet. Until they can muster enough PPD to beat us out for good, if they could even manage that, I'll just enjoy looking at Techpowerup's overtake page. I like how it shows us decimating most teams in the day to day standings.

    We've sure made ourselves a little powerhouse here, which is only further exemplified when you consider how small our team is in numbers compared to most other teams in our PPD range. I'm glad that I joined Techpowerup first over HWC, as I likely wouldn't be a part of this great little team we got here.

    Today we've got two of our newest members, Laurijan and kenny21, crossing their first milestone with the prospect for more very shortly. I hope to see more of this upward trend of new team mates, and in turn I hope to be handing out more of these initial milestones. It's quite nice to see the team growing like it is. :toast:

    They didn't even make it to our team overtake listings as they never had close to enough days at enough PPD. While they beat us again yesterday, it was only again by a meager 80k. However dashing their aspirations was a returning post from Buck that I'd like to think demoralized their masses. It probably only made them grumble, but I like to view it as Buck arriving on the horizon with a flamethrower to route HWC's main line. As Buck begins pumping out WUs again to match his prior numbers, I'm going to pretend its HWC I hear screaming each WU, and not cancer.

    PerraCash passed 4,000



    Today saw 2 of our newest members earning some preliminary badges, while another newer member crosses his first TPU 1 million. Jstn7477 continues on from his recent 10k mileston to post his 25k milestone with relative ease. Also reaching a milestone is Breit, who crosses 10k tonight and earns their his milestone. And lastly, earning his 1 millionth point for TPU is Dhoshaw. And while this is a feat truly worth displaying, Dhoshaw has just recently earned himself the Crazy Folder badge he desired so he's probably quite proud to be displaying that instead. Should be a nice back up badge though. Congrats all. :toast:

    A rather quiet Sunday in which we spiked 140k back upwards from yesterday, only a portion of which came from Buck's return. I'm not sure if its only more server fluctuations or if the rest of us found extra PPD lying about, but I'll take it. Meanwhile, as a team we passed a tremendous 150,000,000. :rockout:

    We've got 5 members hitting milestones tonight, starting from Castiel and Parelem hitting their first 10k. It may look like a long road to the folding badge, but before you know it, you'll be up a few milestone and that much closer. Follwing them is Duxx as he passes 25k, and nflesher as he passes 50k. Last but most certainly not least is Bogmali as he dishes out his 10 millionth folding point. I lost track of when you doubled me in points Bogi, but its no less ego crushing to realize you're too insane for me to ever beat. You and Buck seem to call for a higher badge than 'Crazy Folder'.

    839,788 on the 19th! I have no doubt we've got what it takes to break 1 million PPD as a team guys, we're not far off from it. Meanwhile we're inching ever closer to the top 50 and outpacing HWC more everyday.

    We seem to have outpaced our friendly competitors, for the time being anyways. They seem intent on mounting a counterattack, as per their forums, but hopefully we've gained ourselves a little breathing room. After all, this has been the first time in months that they haven't been on our overtake threat list.

    What's even more crazy to think is that in the short time since Buck announced the challenge with HWC, we've folded almost 20 million points. Only the top 240 teams have folded more in their entire team's lifetime. This is a true indicator of how strong TPU's folding community is, and what makes us a great team. Good work everyone. :rockout:

    Tonight has 4 members earning a mention, starting with the likes of Laurijan, Parelem and Supreme0verlord. All of them seem to have been doing their best Godzilla impression on a load of WUs. In only a coulple days they'll all likely have earned their folding badges. And speaking of earning folding badges, Nosada does just that tonight as he blasts past 100k. Congrats everyone!

    You guys are folding like mad-men! During the beginning, I flew up the charts. I even made top-20 for three straight days.

    Since then, I'm engaged in the Sisyphean task of rolling up to number 50 in the TPU member list. I'm there now, but I'll be hurled backwards soon. :banghead: All these new guys cranking out 9K+ a day.

    I guess Christmas is going to have to come early to my humble abode. I need another card. Gonna get off now and write a note to Santa.

    Someone do the math.

    If it took him x amount of time to get 5 mil. How long will it take (Or for bonus points, how old will El Fiendo be) for El Fiendo to make 1 Trillion.

    Well let's see. Assuming I keep a constant 40k PPD for the entire time, it should take me another 24,999,875 years to hit 1 trillion. Although once Fermi is released, I will get 6 GPUs for ultimate power. I predict it will take me 2.6 months after that to hit 1 trillion. My numbers are beyond doubt, so don't bother questioning them.

    Nastyhabits is right though. We are folding like crazy. Our top 20 is almost entirely people who are 10k+. Our top 10 are almost all Crazy Folders! :toast:

    Pie!

    I'm climbing other team members like stairs... I hope to be in the top 30 at least. Top 20 are all people who have 10+ PPD like Fiendo said, so I know I won't get up there... but I should be able to hang out in the 30's at least with my 4.2-4.4k ppd
