    Oh well, I went Mountain biking for a few days and had 2 rigs crash:shadedshu. Damn rigs are crashing more than I am on the bike! At least I had me some fun;). It appears I have found yet another sig worthy post by El Fiendo!!!!

    There is never enough time in the day, nor days in the year. Tonight will be a double pie update to account for the weekend, which in itself was a fairly eventful one. Friday saw the long anticipated arrival of Fermi, but there is still mystery surrounding the architecture when it comes to folding. It would appear that we all are going to have to wait out for a week or two before seeing any performance figures. Until then all we have is varying speculation.

    As for ourselves, after seeing Bogi's shotgun blast of a Friday and with the knowledge that quite a few members are making special preparations for the Chimp Challenge, I have no doubt that we'll make an awesome first showing. Though we can still use all the active folders and able bodies we can get. Head here if you have'nt been to 777's thread on the competition already.

    Oh and Buck, here's hoping that quote holds true and Fermi is a folding monster. I'd definitely work it into my 'upgrade plans'. (Read: Asinine spending)

    Pie!

    And after the weekend is said and done, we had one Milestone being claimed by one of our newer members and a whole mess of progress. Taz100420 claimed his first ever 10,000 and put his name on the map in what is hopefully a long career. Congrats, my good man.

    From what I've read, it looks like the Fermi will be a folding monster. In fact, it's the only area in which it demonstrates a sustantial jump in GPU performance (up to 3.5 times a GTX 285). There is, however, this little tidbit to consider - gleaned from HardCop.

    Set up a farm of those, and you could bring down the powergrid for an entire province. :D

    Holy Cow:eek:. I thought 4x 8800GTS's/Phenom x4 9850 were bad with 750watts draw @ the wall. Time to upgrade the wiring:shadedshu.

    El Fiendo,

    Get a pool. Hook the fermis up to the filtration on the pool for water cooling so you can heat up your pool nice and toasty while cooling your cards! :)

    A pool?

    Wait no this works. All the warm summertimes that I hate (90-100 F) are now cool and refreshing, and if I can cover it in the winter and drain most of it I bet I could keep it from freezing completely. Then if I have the i7s helping the GTX 4XX's out, maybe I could do like a pool hot tub combo with the reduced amount of water (therefore more heat over less medium).

    When I partially drain the pool it turns into the below ground hot tub that is great for the winters, but I'd have to design the concrete like a fiend. Maybe I'd even toss in a grotto that you could only get to by scuba diving. I don't really hold much attachment to my current back yard so I can pretty much use it all for this. I'd also be safe from all the bombs while I lounged in my hot tub due to it being underground bunker like.

    I think this could work. Also, the pickup line 'hey, want to come check out my subterranean hot tub?' appeals to me.

    It's all about the subterranean hot tub. :cool:

    Now some may have noticed HWC has disappeared off our radar. We seemed to have scared the crap out of them just enough to get them to maintain an average just 1.3k above our own. :laugh: We've also lined up our next 3 overtakes to happen over the next 3 weeks. Now if I could just get my computers to play nice, I'd be quite content to sit back and watch our wholesale slaughter of work units. I should say with the teams average as high as 850,000 PPD already, which is at least double most other teams around us, I don't think we're feeling the pinch for production quite yet. Keep up the good work guys.


    Pie!

    Tonight's milestones showcase two millionaires, one whose been anticipating entry into the F@H Millionaire club for days, and one that has an odd odor about him. PowderedSugar, along with achieving entry into the millionaires club, sees an upgrade in the folding badge arena by earning a cool million points. Meanwhile, I pull off 13 million off the backs of hamsters in wheels and the cats also in wheels chasing them. Now you see why I'm thinking about upgrading my electrical.

    Woohoo! I'm going to have to celebrate with a few beers tonight. Hopefully the next million will come faster as I have plans on building a dedicated i7 machine.

    1,000,000 / i7 = 28.57 days. Good luck with the build and congratulation with the first mill

    I would not be surprising there would be an odd odor considering the hamsters and cats needed to pull off that 13 million trick. It probably costs more to keep the poop under control than it would to upgrade your electrical.:laugh:

    Congrats El Fiendo and PowderSugar.:toast:

    And you are in my rear view mirror as well but I have NEVER been over taken and it will not happen this time either. My i7 will soon be a folder (sorry chrunchers, I'll be back). :toast:

    I shovel it out every summer and sell it on the roadside out of the back of my SUV as 'quality earthen material'. This will be funding my upgrades this summer.

    The milestones can't seem to keep themselves clean of these pesky millionaires. It would seem that TPU has a severe donational problem. Along with that we have quite a few new members posting progress looking to add their own to our vice, and one specifically grabbed a milestone tonight. Jordan313 starts things out as he claims his first 10k after only a few days of folding. Meanwhile, Nastyhabits and Sneekypeet both vie for the spotlight tonight, but both manage to finish in a tie for 3 million points. Very nice show everyone, congrats.

    I feel honored to have crossed the same threshold with sneekypeet, a dedicated folder if there ever was one. Cheers for the two off us. :toast:
