    I should be on the next milestone listing :D two milestones in two days :rockout: That's because I just started out :roll:

    At least that is according to DC stats, where do you guys get the milestones from?

    Day two of the standings are as follows:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 EVGApes 1 8,169,717 7,027,148 40.8 hours
    1 OCNChimpin 2 5,693,902 5,185,739 2.8 days
    2 T32monkeys 3 2,216,789 2,124,130 8.4 days
    3 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 4 2,049,445 1,865,136 9.6 days
    4 maximum_monkey 5 1,949,400 1,746,081 10.3 days
    5 TSCh!mp 6 1,840,543 1,638,552 11.1 days
    6 CustomBitChimps 7 1,499,685 1,407,863 13.1 days
    7 ChimPowerUp 8 1,053,924 950,105 19.9 days
    8 Monkey_Bollocks 9 773,869 688,013 27.9 days


    While that may look rather bleak, a look at the totals produced to date shows that we aren't far behind the other teams. While EVGA and OCN may have spots one and two all but locked up, there is fairly significant competition for between the rest of the teams. While some might have their first inclination to be disheartened, we should all remember that we're first year entrants from 37th place, keeping pretty good pace with the majority of entrants who are in the top 10. Not to mention the fact that this team has seen a healthy boost in participation and support.

    :rockout:

    Thank you for everyone whose thrown their hat in. If you're feeling like you want to help show a few of these top 10 teams that we're here, feel free to join us folding under ChimPowerUp as there is still time left in the race.

    Meanwhile, an important scientific discovery was made. ChimPowerUp is fueled by pie:

    2 2010-05-05 Mindweaver 850,000


    I get the milestones from Free DC, but I've got them pared down to 10k, 25k, 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k and every successive million that they list. This is because I post up a handy certificate from Stanford for each of these denominations. All else is colloquially called progress to still recognize the damned good work everyone is doing. Your first milestone will be the 6th, as the updates were just past that of the 5th. :toast:

    The milestones last night had 2 new members making a splash. First off was Rabsur, as he crushed his first 10k in the name of TPU. Meanwhile D.Law has been switching some focus from WCG to F@H over the past couple of days, and in turn has earned himself both his 10k and 25k milestone within the first 2 days of folding. :respect:

    Congrats to all.

    Yesterday was a big day for TechPowerUp. As thebluebumblebee pointed out (and I believe he is correct), its our first time breaking 1 million without a points correction. Considering that TPU got 1,220,291 in one day, everyone deserves a congratulations. The end of day two of the Chimp Challenge shows:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 EVGApes 1 13,316,599 5,861,443 26.4 hours
    1 OCNChimpin 2 10,405,485 5,370,981 43.2 hours
    2 maximum_monkey 3 3,834,349 2,080,765 7.8 days
    3 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 4 3,826,684 2,004,618 8.1 days
    4 TSCh!mp 5 3,573,420 1,909,344 8.6 days
    5 T32monkeys 6 3,244,286 1,329,207 12.6 days
    6 CustomBitChimps 7 2,363,910 966,381 18.2 days
    7 ChimPowerUp 8 1,851,291 896,053 20.3 days
    8 Monkey_Bollocks 9 1,372,154 681,942 27.3 days


    The jostling continues for third place while EVGA and OCN run away with the production. Those running the HWC page were kind enough to provide a link to show how teams 3-9 are doing without EVGA and OCN in the graphs, as OCN almost has a good 7 million on the closest team, and EVGA is even further ahead.

    To put things in perspective:

    We have currently 192 processors that produced 1,851,291 since May 5th, or roughly 9642 per processor. EVGA has 1197 processors that have produced 13,316,599, or roughly 11125 per processor. Lastly OCN has 1913 active in the past 7 days that have produced 10,405,485, or about 5439 per processor. Their lead doesn't look as impressive when you take into account the number of contributors, though their F@H Team user base would seem to be a bit deeper than our own. Whatever the case, we definitely pack a punch for the size of our team.


    Pie!

    And the end of day 3 seems to leave us with one team hours form passing the 20 million. However, most have vowed to take the challenge all the way to 20 million for their team, so there should be many days left in the running. Currently, there is a struggle for third place that has 3 teams currently vying for position in a close race. The standings as of now are:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Total Points Last 24hrs. Est. Time
    1 EVGApes 1 19,265,635 6,645,758 2.4 hours
    2 OCNChimpin 2 15,557,760 5,867,890 19.2 hours
    3 maximum_monkey 3 5,552,235 2,025,598 7.1 days
    4 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 4 5,409,306 1,882,355 7.8 days
    5 TSCh!mp 5 5,394,850 2,038,993 7.2 days
    6 T32monkeys 6 5,025,961 1,909,340 7.8 days
    7 CustomBitChimps 7 3,964,905 1,698,080 9.4 days
    8 ChimPowerUp 8 2,717,636 949,707 18.2 days
    9 Monkey_Bollocks 9 1,991,744 695,159 25.9 days



    We continued with our team production just passing 1 million PPD, so we're still cruising along. It will be interesting to see if anyone slows down once EVGA passes 20 million. Whoever ends up winning the Chimp Challenge, F@H is the clear winner as the total output over 3 days for these 9 teams is astounding.

    Also, have a look at this post for some more stats on team makeup. The numbers may just surprise you.

    Last night's milestones show DanMiner, long time folder, reaching 8 million with TPU. His dedication to F@H can be traced back as far as May 2007, meaning he's coming up on 3 years of contribution. Thanks for all your efforts, and congratulations on your milestone.

    Unfortunately I've just learned that I'll be out of town until late Tuesday, and I'm not certain if I'm going to have internet. The updates can go without for a few days, or if anyone would like to lazily update it now and again, that's fine by me. Just no 50 Hitler posts please. I'm leaving everything running, and if everything holds as it has been, everything will still be running when I get back.

    I have this compelling urge to update this thread. Someone whose name starts with a G must be to blame. ;)

    So what remains of the Chimp Challenge you ask? Well just as of a few hours ago, a third place team was crowned. The stats as they stand for the completed teams are:


    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Average PPD* Finished by Total Days
    1 EVGApes 1 6,714,826.3 May 8, 12pm 3.0 days
    2 OCNChimpin 2 5,026,917.0 May 9, 12pm 4.0 days
    3 T32monkeys 3 2,349,400.3 May 14, 6am 8.75 days


    While the teams still moving toward the 20 million mark are:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Total Points Last 24hrs. Est. Time
    1 TSCh!mp 4 19,053,402 2,521,578 9.6 hours
    2 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 5 18,340,590 2,201,571 19.2 hours
    3 maximum_monkey 6 13,705,144 1,106,022 5.7 days
    4 CustomBitChimps 7 12,562,279 1,459,264 5.1 days
    5 ChimPowerUp 8 7,996,721 826,993 14.5 days
    6 Monkey_Bollocks 9 5,927,440 561,254 25.1 days


    As a note, the average PPD in the first table is the average each team had over the course of the competition until the time they first finished the goal.

    The biggest gain for TPU isn't readily apparent by these stats. For the course of the Chimp Challenge, we've increased our output by at least 200k PPD to average above 1 million for most of the days the Chimp Challenge was on. We've moved ourselves into 12th place in terms of average PPD and we're but a fraction of the size of many of the teams around us. We've seen many new members come and show interest, and we've all pushed harder and have done a fair bit to solve problems collectively. This exercise was as much of a team building exercise for TPU as it was anything else, and I have no doubt we're a stronger team now then before. Everyone deserves a congratulations for what we've done here so far.

    With mostly everyone folding under ChimPowerUp, we see few milestones coming to light while ChimPowerUp races forward. As such, I included some stats from the past few days that I've missed to help flesh out the standings. As can be seen, there are a number of members right on the cusp of achieving some juicy milestones. Meanwhile, Taz100420 stands alone in the spotlight and brings home his 50,000 point milestone. His next milestone will be tough as it requires him to double his current total, but with the 100k milestone also comes the Folding @ Home forum badge. Congrats on the 50k Taz, here's hoping the next 50k goes smoothly as well.

    How long do you guys usually leak test before installing everything in? So far its only about 8 hours without leak (that I know of) but I'm all antsy and want to get it set up as quick as possible. I've been cut down to 75k for the past couple of days due to the heat and the resulting BSODs. Sorry ChimPowerUp. :eek:

    But as for placement and standings? Well Pie has remained mostly the same. As pointed out by a member earlier, we've been getting a lot of Pacman reminiscent updates, with little change. But as for the standings of the finished teams:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Total Points Last 24hrs. Est. Time
    1 EVGApes 1 6,714,826.3 May 8, 12pm 3.0 days
    2 OCNChimpin 2 5,026,917.0 May 9, 12pm 4.0 days
    3 T32monkeys 3 2,349,400.3 May 14, 6am 8.75 days
    4 TSCh!mp 4 2,117,589.2 May 15, 12am 9.5 days
    5 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 5 2,011,215.3 May 15, 12pm 10.0 days


    While the teams still heading to the finish shape up like this:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Total Points Last 24hrs. Est. Time
    1 CustomBitChimps 6 18,637,640 1,555,653 21.6 hours
    2 maximum_monkey 7 18,413,668 1,106,600 33.6 hours
    3 ChimPowerUp 8 11,076,761 736,797 12.1 days
    4 Monkey_Bollocks 9 8,323,276 567,814 20.6 days



    Fold on guys, we've crested the median and are making hard for the finish line. We've maintained a great deal of our average after the first teams finished, which is a fine example of dedication to the cause. No giving up just yet!

    Since the last update, we see that Imperial Reign and Stanhemi have earned themselves some milestones. Imperial lays down a regal 500,000 points, all the while reminding me about men in tights. Meanwhile, a conglomerate has started to form under Stanhemi's name where both Crunchers and Folders are donating in his honor. This has resulted in a 2 million point milestone in his name, and the current lead on the WCG team. Here's hoping we can see Stanhemi back on the forums alright and well. Congrats to Imperialreign, and best wishes to Stanhemi.

    Are you using worm drive clamps? If so, a future leak is unlikely, unless your loop is very complex. I tested mine for 4 hours, then cranked up the rig with radiator fans off to heat up the tubing. Let it run to 80c and then set her up for the long haul. No leaks after a week now(fingers crossed).
