    I like this upward trend we're seeing, because even though we know we're missing some power from a few members, we're still moving along steadily. One thing Team TPU has is amazing consistency at keeping such a spectacular PPD. We've got a good, dedicated bunch. :toast:

    By the way, we thrashed HWC by about 142k today. :eek:

    The third millionaire in as many nights earns himself a new milestone and keeps the streak alive. This time we have TeXBill earning an almighty 3 million. An honorable mention will go out to Niko084 whose just short of his millionth folding point and F@H Millionaire status. You're in the home stretch with this last 50k to aquire, very nice work man. Congratulations, TeXBill.

    Long, crazy night. With random lap dances and everyone getting thrown out of the bar, there almost seems like there's little left for excitement today. However, I find that yet again we've bested HWC in output. They now only stand 20,000 PPD away from us being on their threat list. It may be tough to beat the likes of EVGA or OCN for the Chimp Challenge, but we may just be able to get enough extra steam to close in on the northern folders.

    Tonight's milestone comes from a relatively new member who has just reached his second milestone for TPU. BoT snags 25k with TPU tonight, but in actuality has well over 1 million points spread across several teams. Glad to have you tossing some weight around with us man. :toast:

    After the debauchery and absolute ridiculousness of the night before, I should have known better than to go out last night. All I can say is ' :shadedshu -> :banghead: '

    Sigh, one :nutkick: for the money, two :slap: for the road.

    2 milestones tonight as the King of the Wookies starts things off with a little 500,000 points action. He now faces a daunting 500,000 point jump until his next milestone, however with his next one comes an upgrade in his folding badge. Meanwhile hertz9753 finishes the night with another shout out to the millions. His 9 millionth for TPU comes in tonight and rocks the house, which is added to his 2 million he earned in the past. Very nice, and congratulations to you both.

    Yes, a shout out to hertz9753 on his 9 million and to King Wookie for his 500,000 points. :toast:

    And El Fiendo I hope your :banghead: feels better before tonight's pie is baked and ready to serve.:)

    No worse for wear, it was gone within an hour. I'm now more miffed about how much money. :laugh:

    But I'll call it a preemptive celebration for a little bit of :nutkick:ing the team did tonight.

    [​IMG]

    We may have to polish that '4.6 years' part of the picture, but that will come with time. However with HWC seeing an inexplicable drop to 650,000 tonight, an overtake may well come about quicker than expected. Whatever the case, our daily PPD still stands to increase over the coming weeks and we've yet to find our average. An excellent show by everyone. :toast:

    Tonight sneaks by without milestones, though in seeing the progress we have PCPraiser closing in towards 100,000 and a folding badge for the forums. Also, we see new members all making their first marks toward their first milestone. Great stuff guys, this is what keeps us moving on up in PPD. The more science, the merrier.

    I had a pretty big smile on my face when I saw it too. It'll be interesting to see what the next few weeks hold as we have upward trend, and the currently have a downward trend. While they did spike today up to 950,000, there is a clear pattern over the past few weeks that show a similar spike every few days. This spike has been continually smaller each time, this time being no different.

    Though we ourselves now have a threat to our team as China Folding@Home Power, currently ranked in 51st place, eases past us in PPD. We've got 17 years to prepare for their onslaught at their current rate. I think we should have enough time to prepare some. :laugh:

    Also, it would seem one of my bigadv work units was not worthy of points or some such. I know it was sent off. :banghead:

    Dustyshiv steals the show tonight as he posts up his 5 millionth point for TPU. This momentous milestone should also be accompanied with the current highest folding badge achievable, if I'm not mistaken, aside from the Crazy Folder badge. As for achieving the crazy folder badge, Dusty isn't too far off of that badge either. Congratulations Dusty!

    Considering your continued contribution to both WCG and F@H, I think you're probably allowed a couple hours of gaming a night. :laugh:

    Another day of moving on up, in just over a months time we stand to overtake 3 teams. We're currently 16th overall in daily PPD, but without our reduced PPD and with a few additional tweaks, we should be able to achieve position 12th in daily PPD. This would be the highest sub 1 million PPD ranking we could get. I'm really glad to see how far TPU has come, and also, as Dusty pointed out, that so many are willing to help out a great cause.

    The milestones tonight are absolutely relentless as we have 4 that pound center stage. Just starting out, we have Phaux earning his 10,000th point and first milestone. Next up however, we have 3 millionaires all crossing another million by chance on the same day. First we have theonedub whose 3 million starts out the millinoaire run. He's followed closely by Oily whose million brings him to 13 million, and finally we see Bogmali swooping in with the final millionaire milestone of 25 million. Very nice work all.

    Congrats to all those milestones last night and tonight whether it was 500 or 25 million.

    The millionaires gain the most attention starting with Dustyshiv's 5 million, theonedub,s 3 million, Oily's 13 million and Bogmali's unbelievable 25 million.:toast:

    I stand in awe. I am humbled by the accomplishments of my fellow TPU folders. :respect::respect::respect:

    But let's not forget the swarm of new folders. Hopefully they'll catch the fever, increase their output and together, we'll all hunt down those HWC guys once again. :toast:

    EDIT: I just noticed that Oily_17 and El Fiendo grabbed the top two pieces of pie. Congrats guys.

    From the millionaires constantly reaching for newer higher milestones, to the swarm of folders we're a diverse team. Everyone's been working hard and its showing in how steady our production has been. Another night of 900,000+ guys, 150000 greater than HWC. We've sent a warning shot across their bow, so now we get to see if they wake back up. :toast:

    Just can't get enough millions. First milestone of the night came from Armored Cavalry as he valiantly hands in his 100,000th point. You now should have access to the forum folding badge due to this milestone. Meanwhile, msgclb further secures 3rd place as he crests 15 million and pockets the milestone to show off at bars or other fine establishments. Just so you know msgclb, emphasize the number as being how much cancer you've 'killed' and they'll be eating out of your hand. Congratulations guys!

    Thank you El Fiendo.:) This is the first thread I check after work. Since I don't want planets to explode, only 25% of my thank you that I post ever day is meant for El, the rest is for the new milestones and the team.:toast: Congrats ArmoredCavalry and msgclb.

    Tonight was marked with equipment errors abroad for me, so here's hoping that it wasn't a universal trend with the team. Hopefully the apparent hardware failures that cropped up tonight are also the cause of the small instabilities I've noticed over the past few weeks and this solves my problem.

    Also, HWC has made rumblings about the Chimp Challenge, so we may have some more direct competition from them. At the very least we should be able to whup them (or that's what I'm striving for).

    Two milestones and a near miss tonight, with PowderedSugar falling just short of F@H Millionaire status. As for the milestones that did go through, 777 lands a whopping 250,000 for TPU (which adds to a much larger point total across his career) and jasper1605 lands 50,000, the halfway point to the forum's folding badge requirement. Congratulations guys!

    Hey Nasty, looks like you got that 5th place pie. I'm coming back for it tomorrow though, and if I can find a new 1366 processor to buy cheap up here than I will be able to roll something else out for you guys. Sadly, if all goes well it'd still only be enough for third place. And to think, only a very short time ago I built my i7 looking to gain 3rd place performance. My increase was met with a rash of other surprises coming online from my friendly team rivals. You guys make it impossible to stay on top and retain money.

    I think next year I'm switching over to electric heat, so I'll start buying my Fermi's for the winter time. I'm going to have to figure out how to make them disobey the laws of physics over the summertime, or I guess just water cool the crap out of them. We've yet to see any solid numbers, but once GPU3 is released to accompany this card that should change. From what I understand, its a matter of Fermi's new architecture. Some rumors say its a 70% increase over the GTX280, or 13,500PPD ish (stock). Others say that it offers a 3.5x increase in CUDA performance, so this should translate directly to F@H. If this sucker outputs 34-36k PPD by itself, I wouldn't care if it ran hot, or was forged by the devil upon an Indian burial ground at the expense of the lives of 200 virgins. They probably weren't contributing to society anyways or something. I doubt a 3.5x performance increase over GTX 280, but anything is possible I suppose.

    BTW, what Bogi was doing to work units upon his return to full power today basically looked like this. It's a little graphic. :p

    We have 3 members putting up numbers tonight and as luck would have it, all are walking away with milestones in hand. First we have ShiBDiB slaughtering his 100,000 milestone, thus granting him access to the TPU Folding Badge for the forum. Next we see AndyBroke trundling along and breaking the 250,000 barrier for his milestone tonight. Lastly, we greet Niko084 to the F@H Millionaire club as he smashes down a million in Techpowerup's name. Congrats all, very nice work tonight.

    Holy moose p***. I even passed Buck_Nasty (probably from his Un-doing, not any of my doing.) And Bogimali's 250K a day. OMG. First the (almost) million a week, then the quarter million a day, what's next from the almighty TPU folders? Amazing stuff guys. I stand in awe. I've taken off my hat so many times, my arm hurts. Keep up the good work. :respect::respect::respect:
