    Oh, I dunno. I might be able to arrange something.


    So far our points barrier is holding, but its wearing down. I believe we still have some points that are to be added in for the few days of incorrect point tallies, so I suspect we'll get a scare as their points surge up higher. Their contest is dwindling down so with any luck we'll catch a break in a few days time.


    Pie!

    Looks like we got 3 members posting up tonight starting with TheLaughingMan and Wile_E both crashing past 25k. Both of them seem to have the strength to make it to 100k with relative quickness and ease, merrily crushing proteins as they advance. Soon you guys will join mosheen, who has just crossed 100k and has earned his folding badge. I believe he's still working on his Boinc requirement for the contest, so hopefully he makes it in time.

    Wait a minute, I'm covering international shipping. Shipping to Mauritius? :eek::laugh:

    It would appear that today's results are the first step in the decline for HWC, as they've dropped down to just over 990k today. Our point total has seen decline in the past few days, most likely because Buck is currently seeing a large drop in points. Hopefully its nothing too grievous and costly, as those types of things are never fun to have to deal with.

    We should see some extra leeway opening up really soon in the next few days. This should allow a little extra breathing room for those of us who've been figuring out hardware issues. I hate dropping things off for too long to get it all fixed up, because I'm never sure if I'll be able to turn it on again before I have to stop working on it.

    Keep folding guys, 2 days till the top 50! :rockout:

    Looks like we have 6 milestones being posted up tonight. For starters we have iFX and Weer grabbing 25k and 50k respectively. Next we have Gaximodo hitting 100k and earning his folding badge. Past that we have TeXBill earning 250k, while nflesher posts up his 500k milestone. Lastly, we have Sneekypeet posting up his 2 millionth folding point tonight, bringing tonights flurry of milestones to an end. Some good hard work went into all these names earning their mention tonight. Good job all. :toast:+

    Sure did, but it missed the 22nd by a couple of hours it seems. So officially it'll be posted up tomorrow.

    Because that's no fun, here's a little something something.

    I know right? I do remember when his PCs were truly 'POS', not to knock your hardware. :laugh:

    And even though his PCs aren't top of the line, the power he manages to squeeze out of his rigs indicate a dedicated folder and cruncher. His million is hard earned and well deserved.

    I know i may not have the best hardware or the most power out of everyone but looking back about 2-3years ago i see that i have alot better stuff now.I should be putting out even better numbers soon as i will be adding a 2nd 8800GT to my main rig and another 8800GT to my newly built cruncher
    thanks for the kind words :toast:

    It would appear we're starting to see some of the points owed to us being handed out. As such we've officially broken 1 million points. I'm inclined to disregard celebrating it seeming our total is artificially boosted, though we're close and it won't take us much longer to get there and sustain it. We'll be up there in actuality soon.

    Meanwhile Deadthings continued to switch back to his home team, which resulted in HWC only beating us by 150k. Its difficult to tell the current standings due to the changing points totals. In a few days once everything is settled and distributed, we'll see a much clearer picture of where we stand. HWC's contest ends in a few days so we're likely to see more dropping.

    16 hours until the top 50!


    Pie!

    Quite the list! Starting off tonight we have MStenholm earning 100k, and his folding badge in the 20 or so days he's been folding for us. Next we have the aforementioned POS PC 1 million point extravaganza showing up. There should also be a nice badge upgrade accompanying that milestone. From there we've got 2 more millionaires tossing another million on the pile. Mike047 and Beertintedgoggles snag 6 million and 5 million respectively. Beertinted should be earning a new badge with that, and Mike047 is looking to close the gap between him and mmaakk. Congrats to all the stoners.

    Did you recently put some more wood on the fire? I'm not the only one who might put a damper on your hopes!

    I added little bit. That would be great to see, because then the team would really kicking butt at the same time HWC declines.:toast: 9753=last for digits of my phone number, I wasn't feeling very creative that day.:laugh:

    Way to go indeed! And if that wasn't enough, over the next 2 weeks we'll be jumping up 5 more spaces. The next overtake is again in 16 hours.

    As for the news on the war front, HWC has dropped to just 60k ahead of us. Though the stats are pretty wonky tonight, seemingly resulting in some uncounted work units. There's gotta be a backlog of work units some where.

    One thing is certain though, TPU still has alot of upward momentum, and we'll be cruising our way right up the list. The thing I find scary, is that the top 6 all put out a minimum of 50k yesterday. These 2 rigs I own would've made me a shoe in for 2nd place 5 months ago. Now 7th is the best it can manage based on tonight's numbers. :eek:

    I now know that I have to get a second tenant to pay for the uptime of a second i7. Perhaps I'll get GTX 260s for now until Fermi comes out. Spare no expenses. I will have my vengeance on you all!

    Well I think its been awhile since we had members hitting any of the milestones I post up. Though I must say, kudos to TeXBill whose gathered 300,000 points in just 18 days. Oh, also of special note is that TPU has passed 180 million points produced! :rockout:

    We're back up at 880k, and we would have hit above 900k had my rig not crashed. At any rate we're still working out a few kinks in terms of PPD, as I know more members than just me are currently experiencing hiccups. Having said that we've also got some guys who are further adding to their arsenal. I wonder just how close to 1 million we'll be.

    And also tonight, we've outpaced HWC by a good 80k. Nice work surviving the pressure everyone, now lets work on rebuilding that points lead. We've gone up a spot again as well and are currently sitting at 49th place. In 4 days we'll jump up two more spaces. We're still moving forward at an incredible pace, and we're seeing quite a few more big name teams hitting our sights. Let's topple some giants.

    There are 2 milestones being posted tonight, the first by Wile E as he crosses the halfway point to his folding badge. He should be earning his forum bling in about 1 weeks time, judging by his pace. Meanwhile, dhoshaw posted up his 2 millionth for Techpowerup, which puts him at just over 3 million overall in points. A very nice achievement indeed. :toast:
