    Dhoshaw,

    I appreciate your sincere efforts mate. My landlady complains of the noise from my single 9800 gtx runnin at 100% fan speed which is folding 24*7. Good I got my i7 and one 9800gtx on water. U r wife has every right to complain abt the beasts. Hey...u know what wives do....;) just listen to the woman..but continue to fold:D

    Well guys, I just heard that those guys are already planning a celebration. Rumors are they're getting Celine Dion and Bryan Adams to do the gig, and have 50 foot banners that read 'TPU Smells Like Swass'. You don't want to know what Swass is.

    It just became an even bigger humanitarian mission. We have to beat them. We have to save them and all those around them, including ourselves, from the horror of Celine Dion and Bryan Adams. They don't know what they're getting themselves into, and what they'd be dragging America and the rest of the world into.

    Mayan legend speaks of a global Nuclear Winter lasting 500 years that results form a Bryan Adams / Celine Dion duet. Minds will explode, mutants will form. Life as you know it will be destroyed by

    Now its our job to save the world.

    Yea, I had my fun writing it. It was pure luck that I found a really 'bleh' picture of Celine Dion to help incite a true concern over unleashing her on the public.



    So who want's to be pie master for the weekend? I'm told I'm spending time in the mountains 4 hours away from here. All I'd need from you is for you to post Saturday and Sunday night pie, as well as Saturday milestones and Sunday milestones. I'd do a catchup post on Monday that would be a freaking essay. And then we'd go back to normal.

    Anyone up for it? It comes with a dental plan.

    I'll volunteer. No need for a dental plan. Half my teeth aren't mine anyway. :(

    Phew, I'm glad someone volunteered before I started offering payments and stock options in a fictitious company.

    9PM MST (4.5 hours from right now) seems to be a safe time to grab it, though anytime between 6PM MST (1.5 hours) and 12AM MST (7.5 hours) should all be the same update. That's usually after the last update of the day, and before they roll over for the new day. If you miss a day on pie, don't worry. I've done that and its no biggie, just record the current day's top 10 with a screen cap.

    Thank you.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Clearly 8th place wasn't good enough and dhoshaw manhandles his way around our top 10, grabbing himself a bigger slice tonight. The question now is whether 6th place pie is good enough for him. Or will his rampage continue?

    Oh, Bogi putting out near 75k tonight combined with the increased PPD everyone has been laying on has helped reduce Buck's slice to a moderate 25%. Well, moderate for Buck anyways.

    In other news, we're really answering the call guys. We're hitting record highs, with our latest being 515,262 in a day. We've got higher numbers coming as some rigs still haven't been upgraded / completed. We have 50k more PPD to go to match Hardware Canucks who got 562,939 today.

    Keep it up guys, we can lick em yet.


    Milestones

    Milestones Today
    dhoshaw passes 30,000
    EnergyFX passes 10,000
    Homeless passes 250,000
    Kyle2020_And_MoonPig passes 200,000
    Zubasa passes 4,000



    Milestones Yesterday
    dhoshaw passes 10,000
    EnergyFX passes 5,000
    pepsi71ocean passes 500,000
    theonedub passes 200,000


    Well, I was right partially. Dhoshaw decided not to slow down long enough for Free-DC to catch up. When the update came he'd already passed 25k on his way to 30k. Still got myself a certificate for 25k though. Congrats dude, 2 milestones in 2 days. And soon to be 3 apparently. When I went to the Stanford Stats page for your certificate, you were at 43k.

    [​IMG]

    EnergyFX passes 10k tonight, but with his promise earlier to be adding a GTX 280, I assume we'll be seeing your name alot more over the coming days. Lastly, a name who just recently had himself pie earns his 250000th point today. Congrats Homeless and EnergyFX.

    Buck and Dusty were both dumped tonight from the MPAs. I hate to say it guys, but you were getting far too much pie. It can't be healthy.

    Now I want to see some new names up here!

    The neat thing about Global Warming? Longer summers = girls showing T&A longer. I don't know about you guys, but this

    is easily at least 100 x better than

    [​IMG]

    I mean hell. I don't even know if that is female.


    So today, we've learned that folding is not only a charitable donation to combat genetic diseases, but also a provider of T&A. Oh folding, is there anything you can't do?

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Well, I said I'd be back. Though I was aiming for higher. I'm still itching for some blueberry pie. Unfortunately I have to turn them off for the next few days. But if you guys hold em off, I vow to come back nut kicking.

    Now, also notice that dhoshaw is back around 9th place. It's not just because the updates weren't in his favor, but because everyone has stepped it up. Weeks ago, all you needed to make the top 10 was 8-10k. Now you'll need 15k+ to get in. Before, only the top 8 or 9 members had PPDs over 10k. Now the top 15 all do. Yesterday we produced 560,832, another record breaking number for us. But unfortunately, its still just not quite enough. HWC produced 573,839 in the same time period, but we're doing excellent so far. That gap was as high as 80000 just 4 days ago, now its down to 13000. Keep it up guys, we're not already beaten as they like to think.

    I'm going to start a Miss Cleo advice thread where I use my psychosis to solve your life's problems. I predicted (it was bloody easy to) dhoshaw hitting 50k today, and like clockwork here he is tonight with 50k. Looks like you're going to have to wait 2 days for your next milestone though. Nice work on your quick progression.

    Joining dhoshaw is our resident News Editor btarunr who has just passed his first 10000. It looks like he's just turned on his card again tonight after a few months hiatus. Welcome back bta, we can use the help.

    Last we have another of our more quiet members passing a major milestone. Avarice passes 500,000k, now with no other obstacles between him and the coveted 1 millionth PPD. Congrats, hope you stop in some time.

    Well, some guys are getting booted due to increasing PPD all around. The times they are a changing. I wouldn't be too surprised if we lost Oily off the list at some point, you guys are really answering the call for more numbers. Good work everyone. :toast:


    Well, that should conclude my last update before my camping trip. I'll be back Monday night to do a weekend catch up. I'll leave you all in the hands of NastyHabits, who will be posting the pie and the milestone listing. Fend them off until I get back. Oh, and watch the ones from east Canada, I think they all have rabies or something.

    Looks like Oily_17 dropped off and mike047 jumped on for a nice slice of premium double pie.
    It's great to have mike047 folding and crunching with the big guys. I'm sure Oily_17 will claim a piece again real soon.

    I'm off to try to get rig a PC for my Geforce 250, and plot my entrance in to multicard folding. Wish me luck.

    Wow, I wasn't expecting so much Nasty. You went above and beyond and really made tonight's post a lot easier. Thank you again!

    Go away for 2 days, a new name shows up. Welcome hertz, looks like I'll be posting some certificates for you too pretty quickly.


    I see lots of posts about us making 600k yesterday. The Canuck's beat us by another 20k but we're still adding more ourselves. We've got higher numbers to hit. It's like a new cold war with PPD of mass destruction. I can't believe we rallied 170k in 5 days, that's pretty amazing. Keep it up guys. :toast:
