    Let me jump the gun and congratulate BUCK_NASTY for hitting a stupendous milestone today. A big 4 and 7 zeros. Oh yeah...:respect:

    Late night pie turned into lunch pie, depending on what timezone your at. Though I must say the pie is still tasty. The pie was also light this past day, as it seems Free-DC was having update issues (then again so did I :slap:). Whatever the case, we still see Buck take cherry pie and smash through a huge personal achievement.

    Pie!

    Last night's only milestone probably stands alone considering the lack of points reported to Free-DC yesterday, but Buck was determined to let his awesomeness shine through. As Buck steps up and lays down an earth shattering 40 million, some of us (read: me) are sent spiraling into self induced self worth complexes and hysterical pregnancies. Though, without the belly aching from third parties, this milestone speaks volumes for itself.

    Congrats Buck, that's some very nice. We'll catch you yet. ;)

    Last night was another that saw decreased performance, somewhat due in part to a fair portion of the -bigadv members are encountering instability. I'm going to be installing the NotFred's image next completed bigadv, so I should be able to gauge if that's a better option for anyone having issues. Some people have reported being able to get the backups working on version 1.1, so Bogi and I should be able to get them to work as well. I'm going to replace the image I use with a redownloaded v1.1 and try it again just in case.

    Pie!

    Last night saw two members turning in for milestones, the first of which was ArmoredCavalry with 50000 points. ArmoredCavalry now looks forward to earning a folding badge with a repeat performance of 50000 points. The other member earning a milestone tonight is Wile E, with the 500k milestone. Wile E has reached the last stepping point before the leap to 1 million, entrance into the F@H Millionaire club, and an upgraded folding badge.

    Congratulations to both Wile E and ArmoredCavalry.

    No worries, the quotas don't get instated until this summer, the whippings debut in the fall, and should anyone on the team require further disciplinary action, we plan to have the facilities in place by the holiday season.

    Last night saw a couple of our newer members posting up 10000 each, which earned them their first milestones in F@H and for team TPU. Both of them seem to be working at a good clip which should not only land them 3 more milestones fairly quickly, but a folding badge for the forums here. Very nice work guys. :toast:

    Yesterday saw the failure of apparently only the NVidia work unit assignment servers (though I could be wrong), which resulted in a subsequent drop of team daily output down to 308k. As of this posting the assignment server is still on the fritz, and with Monday being a holiday, its uncertain as to when the assignment server will be back up to furnish our clients with work.

    There is speculation that this is part of a result of a DOS attack on F@H that happened not too long back, though whatever the cause people are getting restless. Hopefully this isn't too problematic a fix and F@H will be up and running before too long.

    Once the servers are corrected, we'll again see a much more bountiful list of progress. However, unlike most times in the past, there will not be a flood of work units all at once to overwhelm our stats board. Meanwhile, we seem to have a couple of our newest members hitting the boards tonight. Hopefully we see much more from them in the coming days once the GPU work server issue is resolved.

    I guess its down to just sitting back and waiting for them to fuel the addiction. :eek:

    My folding efforts are going down the tube. After an abortive attempt to use the 196.34 drivers two weeks ago, my 9600GSO has never been able finish a work unit. To top it off, both of my gpu machines ran out of wu's sometime Saturday night. I got a grand total of ~3K for Sunday instead of the ~25K I should have received. :cry: It looks like it's just my bad luck that both of my machines talk to the same dead assignment server.

    The work units did eventually start showing up again, though we still saw a sizable chunk out of our daily production for the day. With that said, pie is also served up a little funny. However, assuming we get everything back up and in full swing without much issue, we should return to more normal levels shortly.


    Pie!

    The milestone showcase arena tonight contains the honorable mentions of those with progress, but still lacks the main attraction. With the floodgates now opened on the work units we should see some more activity. Having said that, to all those with an appearance tonight: :toast:

    Things are seemingly returning to normal as our daily output returns back to loftier heights. There's been a lot of activity by Stanford these past few weeks, including things such as new servers being installed and a whole rash of work units. Now that the playing field is clearly muddled, I'd kind of like things to settle long enough just to try and keep track of it. Having said that, I'd also like to see the next GPU client, as well as further usage of SMP2, or perhaps 'faster' VMs. :slap:

    Instead of the expected flood of updates, we got a couple of rather large ones instead. One in particular, by msgclb, is to the tune of 11 million points. This number alone is a huge achievement, along with the fact that its earned him third place on the team*. Congrats msgclb, I am in envy**.

    I'd just like to take a second and point something out. We've already succeeded February '09's monthly production by about 5,500,000. More impressively, we've done it only 17 days. The amazing growth of this team is pretty staggering, and this does a pretty good job of showing it. Very nice work everyone.

    In other news, I discovered I'm not so bad at plumbing tonight.

    I have the opposite problem... Electricity here is really cheap one of the cheapest cities on the planet from what I can seem to find out by like 50%+.

    It's the hardware I can't seem to get put together, still working on it. I hope by winter maybe I'll have my media server up and a folding/crunching rig sitting right by it in the rack.

    The past couple of days has served as a pretty good indicator of how GPU heavy our team is, specifically Nvidia GPUs. Assuming Nvidia WUs were the only one's experiencing issue, its pretty safe to say that most of that drop, if not all, was due to the lack of our Nvidia cards. Considering that we have only 74 members on our team and our lofty daily output, it makes sense. Oddly enough one of the only other teams that are similar (low user count, high output) is Hardware Canucks Forum, and we still have them beat on average PPD per user. Great show guys, keep up the push.

    No instances of milestones occured last night, but the effort was all clearly visible. These names here are all perfect example of excellence. Many of the names have all been shown true dedication continuously folding and returning work, or are welcomed newcomers bursting onto the scene. Though I must point out, P_o_s, I believe your client is setup wrong. This one?

    Anyways, again, great work all.

    I wonder how much longer the Nvidia issue will persist? Its to a point where I wake up in the middle of the night when the coil whine goes silent. WEIRD
