    Yeah! :rockout: I am extremely proud to have gotten 100k. You have no idea what it took in the Texas heat to keep 3 machines running. It was 90 degrees F in the room they all reside in! In addition, in order to update the bios on one machine, I had to use a 5.25" drive cause I had no 3.5" floppies, only 5.25" floppies!

    I plan to reach 200k by the end of the summer. When I get my earnings from my summer job I will get a new i7 rig and dedicate it to folding. We will see when that happens, probably late August.

    Once again congrats on all milestones big and small. We have some new members putting up some good numbers. They'll be climbing up the ranks quickly.

    One thing I noticed.

    Bogmali got one million in a week! :respect::respect: Has this been done before? I'm impressed.

    Remember the Chimp Challenge? Every team got more than 1 mil points a week (ALOT MORE!), and they were technically on the same user name.

    :toast: Both of you deserve a round bought in your honor. Since you're both so far away, I'll consume them for you too. Thanks for your efforts.


    I hadn't noticed that, and its a very impressive achievement. Of course, with some of the deals he posts up from his Craigslist, I can very easily understand how he has so much hardware. I still wonder about his 'moved them somewhere else' statements though.


    Pie!

    Last night we see Phoenix, one of our newest members, as he continues to fold up a storm. Now with his latest milestone, he can show off his folding prowess around the forums with his folding badge. Joining him in the update is another new member making his way up the standings, and a group of members helping Stanhemi to new records. Congrats Phoenix, and great work all.

    Well, that was apparently the milestone that knocked me out of it. My 8800GT fried, so I won't be folding for a while. :(

    Don't have the loot to spare. Just bought my Mushkin ram for the 980X build. It won't post with them tho, so I had to order an additional value stick to test with, that I have on rush and 2 day shipping.

    I plan to sell my current system after the 980X is going, then I'll see what I can muster.

    Did anyone other than me that our International Team rank went up from 37 to 36? I was just wondering if anyone already posted that.
