    Tonight's update comes just shy of milestones, but comes with just enough progress to showcase how most our team is clawing at the output trying to make great things happen. Keep up the hard work gentlemen, and we'll be seeing the large numbers from everyone in time. :toast:

    Oh yes. I plan on Folding for awhile! I am piecing together a new rig just for folding. So here in a few weeks/month, I will have one up and running. :toast:

    nah its fine bro i was hoping to hit 100k today just means ill hit 100k tomorrow for sure when i leave for work lol i was just excited when i left for work today figured id come back and have hit my mark but i lost net for 3 hrs so F@H couldnt send my results or get new work. Eitherway ill officially hit 100k tomorrow hopefully ill hit 1mill eventually got a long way to go since i cant afford the power bill of folding 24/7 that and everyone knows ati cards just cant fold worth a flying **** averaging only 3300ppd each gpu at stock

    That's the only reason I don't fold on my 4850, but I might now that I got my accelero, just waiting on the ram sinks yet, and I'll have to order some tape so I can move it onto whatever card I buy next probably a 5850.

    Hehe, sorry guys.

    Our past few days have seen us producing similar numbers as days prior. The unexpected dip on the second helped cause a lowered average without much additional side effects. We do have a new threat on our overtake board from Planet 3D Now, and their main producer must have some major hardware in his possession or at his disposal. Luckily enough however, Planet 3D Now, HWC as well as most teams saw an inexplicable drop in their production yesterday as opposed to our drop a day prior. This could be coincidence or perhaps evidence of server errors at Stanford. Whichever the case we continue to demonstrate a consistent PPD, but with summer approaching we will likely start seeing heat related throttling. Keep it up guys, the teams on overtake watch will have to work hard to catch us.


    Pie!

    Theonedub was just edged out on the second, and has thus far been left behind shaking his fist. Hopefully he can get in to the MPAs and upset the balance msgclb and Dustyshiv have worked out.

    The progress over 3 days has fewer names than I expected, but we still see 3 milestones being put forth by members. First we have DriedFrogPills obtaining 25,000 with TPU as he edges forward towards his 100k and forum badge. Next we see Crazyeyes staring down his work units and earning the aforementioned badge, causing fear and strife among the work units as he passes 100,000. Lastly we see msgclb laying down his astounding total of 16 million, adding on an additional million as of yesterday. Congrats to everyone.

    I was just about to call the RCMP and report a missing person.:laugh:

    First, congratulations to all those milestones big and small. :toast:

    The first thing I noticed was that certificate for 15 million but wait didn't I do that a few days ago? I want a recount! :) Going back and doing some reading I see you clearly noted that 'additional million' so I know it was just a boo-boo. ;)

    This morning I woke up and saw one monitor pitch black. I had a bigadv rig hooked up to that monitor and from my 24/7 rig I could see it was running and would complete in a couple of hours. I soon determined the monitor was dead. I used a monitor from another KVM system to watch the bigadv upload. I've ordered a monitor. I did a quick look locally and I didn't find anything to my liking.

    Congrats to msgclb on a pair of big numbers, and to crazyeyesreaper for getting that badge. :toast: Oops, don't see it yet, but you are eligible.

    EDIT: It's also good to see me back down below fifth place pie where I belong. ;)

    Whoops, fixed msg. Nasty, I wouldn't say you're out of place being higher than 5th place. Its just that this team seems to have quite a few members who don't know how to own less hardware than a 'crap load' at the same time. Those same users also seem to not be able to have them off and not folding for TPU. As you can tell, its some tough competition.

    Pie!

    The night ended by without any milestones achieved but it did show two of our new member, one with his first smack at the stats boards and the other with his impending 100 thousandth point. Very nice work guys, each unit completed surges us forward for our overtakes. Right now we're set to overtake the closest team, The Folding Wolves, in 4 days. :toast:

    :roll: Those were kinda my thoughts, but I don't feel I've yet earned the right to trash my fellow folders, nor do I possess quite the same "fiendish" flare that you have in buckets. :D

    As for a crapload of PC's, I'm now up to 4. My living room sounds like a server farm on steriods. Going to move a couple on to my balcony as soon as the rain stops.

    It would seem we're getting a breather from some of the milestone packed nights we've been seeing. However, we do get to see another new member putting the first of their progress on to the scoreboards. Welcome to the team. :toast:

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go fiendishly flare at some things. In bucket load proportions even. :D

    I've temporarily moved my gpu's over Bjorn3D to help them fight off some threats. I'll be back folding here in a couple of weeks. :D

    Tonight's milestones showcase BoT as he crosses 50k with Techpowerup. Don't let the milestone fool you though, this man has well over a million points and 4 active teams (if I'm not mistaken). Thank you for dedication, and for helping team TPU mow down some people. :laugh:

    Congrats, the F@H forum badge should come in no time.

    Why thank you, dhoshaw.:cool: I will take that piece of pie. I've thrown everything I have at trying to get some pie for the last week, but I still knew that I had to have the right circumstances to get to sit at the dessert table. But let me guess, the new guy at the dessert table doesn't get to eat the pie; He gets to wear it!:eek::laugh:

    I noticed that there is a new Linux FAH Image v1.2 available so about a hour ago when I completed my latest bigadv WU I removed my old v1.1 and started the v1.2 image.

    Up to this point I've been using the command line configuration to set up FAH. This time I used the web configuration method as explained here.

    VMware 3.0 && bigadv folding

    When it's running the last thing you see is FAH login: autofah (automatic login) and the command prompt.

    At first the only way I could tell that FAH was running is the Windows Task Manager that showed all 8 cores at 100%. When 1% was completed I was relieved to see HFM update.

    Hopefully this works!:)
