Congrats. And holy crap I'm getting old. lol It seems like just yesterday you were a loud mouthed 15 year old. lol.
Same here... it's still far too often someone digs up a thread where I'm in there making stupid shit comments
I printed out my 1m points cert and pinned it to my bulletin board thing.
Also... my mom got me sandals for my birthday (and cash). I was wondering wtf I would do with sandals... and I just recently had the most brilliant idea ever. I will now wear my sandals into the shower! No more fooling around with the stupid floor towel to prevent my feet from touching the dirty/cold floor... I will now wear sandals, and that unsightly towel can be gone forever!
I've done this a couple of times with my milestones, though it usually it leads to people thinking I'm a bit off. They just don't know what they're talking about though.
Team output may falter as the majority of us head into summer due to the menace of heat, though nobody can really blame anyone for not wanting to roast in their computer room. However as it stands right now we're as strong as we were before entering the Chimp Challenge. I know a few members are still providing some points to the WCG efforts, so our team is healthy and doing well. We're continuing to overtake other teams, our closest targets being some 2 months and 20 some million away away. A side note is that HWC has a flat tire and it would take 1.3 years to put them back in their place. That's almost incentive enough for me to get another i7.

Here we see the flurry of milestones that hit the weekend, first coming from angelkiller on Friday night ringing in with 250k to get things started. The next day we see Phoenix making a mad dash for his 250k milestone, having applied tremendous steam over the weekend. Sunday we see a couple of big milestones come down the line, one of which being Oily as he computes his 16 millionth for TPU. Also displaying some work unit domination on Sunday is hat, who apparently passed his millionth on his birthday if I'm not mistaken. Congrats on your milestone and your birthday. Congrats as well to the rest of our milestoners and donating do gooders. I love seeing what TPU's made of.
Way to go stoner's! hat, unfortunately, your next milestone isn't until 2 million, just wanted to warn you that they won't come along as often as before.
I was awaken this morning around 4am with a loud bang outside my door followed by a flash of light and then no lights. The power came back on in a second or so then within 5 minutes I got a repeat performance. I got out of bed and turned off the rigs that survived as they are hooked up to a UPS. I left two card running and went back to bed.
I don't think that I've seen rain for over a month but this morning as the rain was still coming down in sheets I got out in it for a doctor's appointment. I just got back and have restarted those rigs.
There are places in this city that is under water and now I see another storm to my south.
On another subject it's not often something happens that I have any real connection too. Friday, Jun 11, 2010 I was notified that a plane had crashes into my High School. I haven't been back into that school since I graduated over 40 years ago. To set the record straight, they didn't run me out of town but I've spent most of the last 40 years out of country or out of state.
You know, I don't think anyone will fault you for keeping some rigs off for fears of it burning down your house.
Do you think its local wiring or perhaps fluctuations in your city? Also, what the hell made the bang and flash?
Side note: @ plane
Thunder and lighting that was just to damn close. On a side note these apartments were probably built about the time I was born. It seems that I get a momentary voltage fluctuation every time a storm comes through.
Ah ok, for a second I thought something electrical had blown out and you were troopering through the sparks and electrical fires that resulted. I was going to have to give you a 'Badass Folder' award or something for turning all your computers back on right after.
The Admiral David Glasgow Farragut award?
Yea, something exactly along those lines. We've already seen pretty similar attitudes around here, alot of people already go through pretty significant sacrifices though perhaps none quite as reckless.

Our first milestone tonight comes from Mashuga, a new member whose claimed their first milestone with relative ease. The second milestone belongs to BoT, as he wrangles his 100k milestone and accompanying forum badge. Congrats to our stoners, and to our members who continue to shoot up the standings.
Accompanying tonight's pie, I thought I'd get some fans from South Africa to help us celebrate the dishing out of pie today. I've currently got 10 guys here playing the Vuvuzela rather heartily. I've since realized that this will do nothing for an internet post, but just imagine that they're here too.

Last night's milestones show KieX taking the stage for his 500,000 milestone, the last milestone before his inauguration into the F@H Millionaires Club. Kiex has been on an absolute rampage this last month as he's already doubled his averages for March and April. Considering that its only the 15th, that's a pretty impressive step up in performance. Congrats to KieX and all the members posting up in the update.
YAY finally some honest pie!!!!!!!
KieX is hitting some good stones lately, even over at the WCG side Good job bro.
Tex, jesus! Great job bro
i like where this is going....
You're actually #9 on EOC Fits
from 0 to (semi)hero in 36 hours lol!
With what you're putting out Fits, you will be smacking some of the top 5 around if heat permits. With summer rolling up for most of the team, things will start getting a little sticky. I'd rather see the team at half power with safe rigs than at nothing because all our computers burned up though.
So, how far have we come in about roughly one years time? Around this time last year, we were in position 70, just breaking into the 60s. Today we're 36th and ever pushing onward. It was around the start of June that we'd completed our last friendly goal set out by Buck, in which we surpassed The Longevity Meme. Upon request for a new lofty goal, msgclb suggested WhoopAss, which I believe is Nvidia's testing team, or is related to nVidia in some way. Anyways, at the time I believe we were slated for a 5 year overtake, but as of today we're looking at 2 months. So much for it being a 5 year goal.

Over the past two days, we've had 3 milestones surface among the updates. Starting things off we have Mashuga, who earns his 25k milestone in a flurry of activity starting up this month. Next we have T-Bob earning his 500,000th point and the corresponding milestone. This again is the last stop off to F@H Millionaire status, and its a big jump requiring you to double your prior input. Lastly, we have 4 time millionaire theonedub posting up his latest and greatest milestone. Congrats to all of our stoners!
Good shit theonedub
this big wu is about to finish. should be done by 12midnight CST. 54787pts gonna be on me tonight?
700,000. Awesome. I think that is the first time I have spotted my own name, but I don't pay much attention.
HA... im excited... today is a way better day for my machine.
single rig is putting out some serious numbers.
Very nice numbers Fits! Now if Stanford's servers will only smooth out...
Whoop, bringing back up to date tonight. Congrats on the third place pie Fits. Buck, pushed down to 8th? Madness! Great show everyone, good to see a few new names waiting for pie over the past few weeks, along with all the additional members we've seen making their way through the milestones.

Wow, this one's going to be busy. Starting off we have hertz9753 stealing the show as the sole milestone on the 18th as he grabbed his 13 million point milestone. Congrats on such a lofty number. The 19th had more milestones yet, starting off with Nick259 as he scores himself his 50k milestone, the halfway point to his forumbadge. Morpha earns his folding badge on the same day as he's just struck 100k. Finishing off the day was msgclb as he devastates science with his foldy prowess. The man pumped out his 20 millionth point on the 19th of June. This is a number that is a goal for alot of teams, and this man has donated it solely. You can't hear the applause because this is text fool, but there is applause. Lastly, Phoenix continues his rampage through the milestones on Sunday as he caps off his 250k milestone. Congrats to everyone on their milestones and their achievements.
