    I better get my butt in gear and get this i7 switched over. A winter storm and about 1.5 feet of snow (in the low spots) occupied my afternoon with shoveling today, but I'm barring my door tomorrow and I'm not going outside until I've switched my VM over. HWC has switched spots with us today, and powered up to 900k while we falter to 800k. Yesterday was a -bigadv WU day for HWC, but that doesn't mean we can let them get away with it. They're still too close for my comfort.

    As for our top 10, there's a bit of an upset tonight. POS_pc and TeXBill both crash onto the scene to claim their pie. Joining them is Dustyshiv, who takes his chance today to grab another MPA. A couple of the regulars claimed to be having issues tonight so they'll likely be back tomorrow looking for blood. Can these three hold their own and fend off competition for some more tasty tasty pie?


    Pie!

    Hehe, pretty close to snatching third place again today. Welcome back Pos and Dustyshiv, and welcome for your first slice, TeXBill.

    [Ion] appears to have almost regained his F@H badge, and will likely do so within the next day or two. Aside from his impending 100k milestone, we have roast earning his first 10k. Now the first thing that comes to mind when I think the name roast is delicious pot roast, and I get hungry. I'm not certain if I'm going to enjoy posting up your milestones if every time I'm going to be reminded of the pot roast I don't have, but having said that here's your first one. Congrats, and here's hoping for many more.

    And this one's for me.

    Well I have have my rigs patched together, and all running... at least for now, so I should be back to full production again.

    I just need to get some DDR memory for my rig and a better PSU , as I have begged, borrowed and stole the parts to get these rigs running again :)

    Dunno, maybe because you stopped folding and your recent work has not shown up yet?

    I should have my badge by tomorrow night, maybe bit sooner. I'm only folding on the 8800GT, I was having some stability issues with my computer and the last time I traced it down to the northbridge overheating, so I'm going to have to hold off folding on the 9300 for now to see if that resolves it.

    looks like 19k ppd is my max. i was away for the weekend so all my rigs were at 100% and the ps3 was folding as well. next time im away for the weekend i will push the OC on the gpu cards and start VM folding again. that should put me over 21K ppd.

    my first one (my first BFG OC that i paid $200 for lol)

    EDIT: It just gave me a black screen at stock :( it looks like i have put too much stress on it for the last 3 years. I will switch it out with the other GT(the one i got from you) and see if i still have the same problem... If so its not the card if it is then all the more reason to upgrade (but i don't want too lose my golden card :cry:)

    Alright, I've set up the -bigadv client up, and without bonus its currently earning 10670 PPD. Even if I don't get the bonus in the end, I'll still have a 2000 PPD upgrade. However according to this link, I'm looking at 24000 PPD, a total of 57000 points or so per unit. Each one should take 2 - 2.5 days to complete, too. Hopefully I've met all the requirements, there is no way to no until I receive the points or not. This should put me at 63-64k, which should just be enough for third place material. :rockout:

    It's not all good news however, as this is burning up my i7 so I'll likely have to upgrade its cooling. The two 4 core VMs only heated it up to 72-75 Celcius, but this 8 core VM heats it up to 77-79 on average, peaking at 83 Celcius. Looks like this next week will be the research and scouting of a cure to my heat issue. The nice thing about the upgraded cooling is, I may just be able to squeeze more out of my i7.

    We've regained some footing today to reach 816k, 56k above HWC's finish, however I'm still pushing for 1 million. I'd upgrade until I could put us there myself if I could afford it. For now I've resorted to milking every last bit of performance out of my clients.

    Also, it would appear we've passed 190,000,000 points as a team. Very nice work guys. :pimp:


    Pie!

    POS and TeXBill maintain their iron grasp on pie tonight, with what looks like the conviction to hold out longer.

    With all the progress being posted up, we still manage to miss the milestones tonight. Its no worries, as there will be plenty in the future. However, I suppose I did mention TPU earning 190,000,000.00, so:

    [​IMG]

    Aside from that, it looks like we're done here tonight. I'll keep those interested updated about the -bigadv venture. I'll also be pestering a few people who know about other-than-air cooling for CPUs. I'll be looking for something that will be reliable and easy to set up, I'm not so sure about setting up for WC for the first time. Though, the GTX 260s could really use the help cooling down...

    I broke 100k overnight!
    [​IMG]
    Hertz asked me if I wanted pie for a day, so I currently have 6 GTX series GPUs and my 8800GT folding under my name. It looks as if I could be getting top-5 pie tonight.
    The PM from hertz asking if I wanted a production boost:
    [​IMG]
    I would post a 100k certificate from Stanford, but it hasn't updated yet and is still showin gme at 100k. :ohwell:, the EOC page still shows I've passed 100k

    We've overtaken the Russians, and our now looking to run down team Poland. We're stoking the fires of production and we're going to push this beast to the top. Over at HWC, they still rumble about raising their PPD and overtaking us. As far as I can count, they have 3 members pulling in -bigadv WUs, however I also know that one of them isn't running his GPUs. They may well be with us for the long haul, constantly a step behind. I must say I envy them, they should have a nice view ahead of them.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    There's been some conspiring, and iFX zooms to 4th to snag himself some pie. POS hangs on to his pie as TeXBill slips from the standings. Competition is heating up.

    Starting out the night, Bravesoul claims his 50,000th point, and is halfway to earning his folding badge like [Ion] did tonight, for the second time I might add. Aside from them, we have Jstn7477 who posts up 250k and is starting on his way to 500k and then 1 million points. And speaking of millionaires, both Newtekie and mx500torid top 7 million, with newtekie just in the lead. Mmx500 is homing in fast and will overtake him within a day, but for now, both can enjoy a brew over their 7 millionth point each.

    That was a one-day occurrence, I don't think it'll be happening any time soon again. I don't have sufficient hardware to get 10th place pie, yet alone 4th. Thanks hertz!:toast::toast:

    We continued our push toward 900k+ today and managed to score 880k. Our rivals up north came through with another productive day, and finished just ahead of us. The -bigadv WU I'm currently folding is set to complete tomorrow around 6, so we'll have that adding to tomorrow's total and hopefully surprise the Canucks a little. It should help fend off the 3 members at HWC that are turning in -bigadv work units. Unfortunately it won't be completely what my rig is capable of as there was some downtime. However most of the -bigadv work units turned in after this first one should do me proud.

    With all that said, we still moved into 45th place tonight and we will be continuing our upward march of 5 positions over the next 2 months. That's not too bad considering that to get into the top 25, it'll take us at least a year at our current pace. Hopefully we can increase our user numbers and PPD in a trend similar to what's already been occurring throughout this past year. If we can achieve that, we can cut that year long estimate down exponentially. Need moar Folders / Crunchers. Let's build up our protein folding, simulation running army.


    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    The top 10 has returned to a more normal state, though I must say POS and TeXBill clearing house for a couple of nights was pretty fun to see. [Ion] was also a welcome addition, so he'll just have to break his back and build a beastly rig or two to come visit again. :laugh:

    Tonight kenny21 steals the spotlight all to himself as he crosses the 100k barrier and earns himself a folding badge. He's also just made the F@H side of the F@H/WCG contest requirements. If he's got the BOINC side down too, his contest entry is sealed. Tomorrow looks like its shaping up to have several people earn their badge too, but we'll worry about that when it comes to it. For now, enjoy this lovely image.
