    I see that my baby is working on some points:D

    See I messed up cause I think that it's folding A3 cores and not the A2 ones. Need to remove -advmethods flag on the command line I guess.

    I believe you've right. Adding -advmethods gives you A3 cores. If you'll pm the passkey I'll move over 4 quads that I've got running A3 cores and hold off moving my -bigadv rigs until you get to 10.:)

    I just learned that 10 A3 units also qualifies and in order to get A2 units, the -advmethods and -bigadv flags need to be active:banghead:

    It would appear there was a re-crediting of points yesterday, and as a result many members of the team saw seemingly inexplicable jumps. I myself gained almost an entire bigadv worth of points, while some members made off with only a few extra thousand. It left us with a total for the day that was just shy of 1 million points, and me with some first place pie. :nutkick:

    Taz100420 hammered out enough for his 25k milestone yesterday, and stands alone here at the milestone presentations. However, we do see the preparations for the Chimp Challenge under way as we start to rack up validated work to enable the bonus for the user name. Congrats to Taz, and thanks to Bogi (and now msgclb) for being prudent.

    Well, I'm not sure if last night's tally was a result of chance or further issues with the work servers. Our output was below average, but our count of work units handed in for the day was above average. :confused: I didn't see anything about my work units getting rejected last night, so I'm sure at least the science is still getting to them. Unfortunately, these server issues have been a major and recurring thorn in Stanford's side. Hopefully the Chimp Challenge this year doesn't burn the place down with an increase in traffic. :laugh:

    Last night, TheLaughingMan earned himself his 500,000th point in TPU's name and now faces the daunting task of getting into the F@H millionaire club. However, msgclb seems to be angling for the last laugh as he crushes another million to reach a lofty 17 million points. :pimp:

    I know that my one PC I have SMP folding has not been able to retrieve a new work unit since April 11th. A complete cleanup/shutdown/reinstall/restart did not resolve the problem. No biggie for me since that PC only did about 1200 PPD on a good day, downhill, with a fierce tailwind. It's also got a 9600 GS0 pushing out 4000+.

    Congrats to all the milestone winners. A big tip of the hat to msgclb. Lots of big numbers from you lately. :respect::respect::respect:

    You shouldn't have to worry msg, the upgrade should only firmly place me in 3rd place. If you take into account that the i7 I built a few months ago was supposed to do the same, you can see just how much this team has been upgrading and performing. The only reason the first i7 failed to keep me in third place was due to the efforts of Oily and yourself. Looking behind me I see some uppity teammates, so I figured I'd best prepare for them now.

    Two millionaires came back for seconds last night, one that should not be mentioned and one that shouldn't not be mentioned. Buck slammed down his 45 millionth point, and saw some time on the boards that he hasn't seen for awhile. I expected the next milestone of his that was picked up by the stats to be 50 million, but it would seem they have different thresholds for milestones than I expected. The last milestone that the server displayed for Buck was around 20 million, so this milestone has been brewing for awhile. As for the other guy, he deserves a wedgie. Congrats Buck, them's some mighty fine numbers you got there.

    I'm guessing there's going to be a real cat fight for that 3rd place.:laugh: I want to encourage Oily to keep burning the coal as you can be assured that I will!:)

    Buck's 45 million is incredible and the unmentionable one with a wedgie also gets my congratulations. :toast:

    Truly awesome milestones guys. :toast: I'm at a loss for words. :respect::respect:

    Wish I could join the i7 race, but I'd have to commit some criminal act, and Oakland has enough crime already.

    A fair i7 build isn't too bad to stomach any more, especially if you have your eyes closed when you click the 'Send Money' button. I've always had a weakness for electronics though, so its pretty easy for me to justify their purchase when the opportunity arises.

    As for updates on the team tonight, we stand to overtake all of Ukraine in under an hour which moves us to 38th place. Two weeks further down the road we look to overtake OcUK, bringing us to 37th place. Hopefully the Chimp Challenge will spur our progress and cut down some of those numbers on our overtake board, though we seem to be doing quite a nice job of passing other teams as is. :toast:

    Also, there's a rare sighting of the endangered ChimPowerUp whose likely come out to stretch his legs and look for something to mate with. Fascinating.

    I am running 14-16th every day in points generated and have to nearly double my points to get pie :-/

    I hope this GTS250 sells today so I can get something bigger!

    The qualifications for pie are pretty steep, requiring roughly the average output of 2 GTX 260s and a 9600 GSO. That would put you in about contention for around 10th. Alternatively, if you replace your GTS 250 with 2 GTX 260s, you should be in pie easily each night. I wasn't kidding when I said it was pretty steep, but its an indicator of how much everyone is answering the call for helping F@H. Hopefully whatever you settle on brings you little issues, and good performance too. :toast:

    The 16th managed to squeak by without any milestones, however the 17th looks to have a few of them developing with a whole load of progress posted up to boot. Good work everyone, and congrats on 38th place.

    The weekend had a few surprises, aside from being the official start of my outdoor chores season, though nothing was too out of the ordinary. There still seems to be some issues with the stats, as I've now received a second bigadv point allotment since I got one 12 hours prior. I was missing a couple from weeks ago, but I thought they'd all been cleared up. Has anyone else been receiving late or inexplicable points recently?

    Also, they've made an announcement on Saturday regarding the shortage of WUs and it would seem that it may get worse somewhat. Considering that they don't mention CPU only, it could branch out into GPU clients which I've yet to see on any of my computers. If any of them are idle for too long, I may have to take them down until they release more work units. Hopefully this is resolved before the Chimp Challenge, although this might even the playing ground all around if it neuters everyone's production. :eek:

    Two milestones and an honorable mention made their way to the lights on the weekend. The first came from Nick259 as he holds out and earns himself his first 10,000. Meanwhile, TeXBill makes another bid for the millions as he reigns in his 4 millionth point. Our honorable mention comes from ChimPowerUp, which is currently active to validate its Passkey. Once the contest starts, I believe a snapshot is taken of each team's current point totals on the competition account and anything additional is what's counted. However, we do see ChimPowerUp sneaking away its 50,000th point. Once the competition starts, I'll be following the milestones as best I can on ChimPowerUp, but I have a feeling a few will be skipped due to its expected output. In the meantime, congrats to Nick and Tex.

    Congrats to TeXBill for hitting a big number (and pushing me down to 8th daily pie). :respect:

    Congrats to all other milestoners - both large and small. :toast:

    And thanks to El Fiendo for clearing up why my SMP client has to try 96 times to get a work unit.

    Sigh, my Chimp Challenge surprise is stuck in an endless boot cycle and never I got around to sleeping last night. As a result, work today is slow. It could be the 3x Classified (which apparently has issues), could be the Ultra X3 1k PSU (which seemed to be highly recommended), or it could be some other of the parts that are all new and untested. This stuff is depressing. :banghead:

    The milestones last night showcased two members just starting out for the team, and also had a returning millionaire displaying his recent conquests. Oily posted up a whopping 15 million, and as such he's earned his congratulations and then some. Very nice work, Oily.
