    Wait, you have GTX 280s in your gamer rig but your wife is getting 3 x GTX 285s? I am correct in my recollection right? And if I am, what the hell?

    Ah-HA! Another addition to be made to my records. :toast:

    She is more intelligent than I would like her to be at times and potentially asks very pointed and deliberate questions... I know her well enough to be able to predict conversations going like this:

    Wife: What's that?
    Me: Your video card.
    Wife: Is it the same kind as yours?
    Me: Um, no... it's my old video card.
    Wife: So I get your leftovers and hand-me-downs???
    Me: heh heh... uh...... :eek:

    or:

    Me: I love you... I am building you a computer!!!
    Wife: Will it be faster than yours??
    Me: um... I love you?? :eek:

    Point being... if I dont build her a comuter that pwns mine she will know it. I'm pretty sure I will be allowed to build myself a new one later than bests hers, but there is no way in hell I could get away with building her a bargain puter that is inferior to my rig.

    Hehehe well thought out man. I guess it's better if you keep your hide, that way you can keep up PPD. If you can sneak some work units out of her rig too, then all the better.

    Damn guys! ~630k - 640k. We also beat the Canucks by about 24k yesterday. Now they just started a folding contest that will run from now until the end of September, but we can match them. We can stand toe to toe to them before giving them a roundhouse and continuing upward. We've got this guys, let's keep it up.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]


    Back for pie, though 5th isn't enough for me. I want third place back, and I'll plow you guys over to get to it. Now submit to my might and you shall be spared. Hertz! Come, we shall rout our opposition.

    And everydayiloveu, whose name is now Edilu, brings in 25000 today. Even folding every now and then will bring in the certificates and help out the team, and Edilu is a perfect example. Thanks for folding, and congrats on your 'stone. :toast:

    You guys are really picking up performance all around, not just in folding but crunching too. Still no idea what these will mean for you, but I can guarantee you they do not double as food stamps. Thank you, Bogi, for testing this theory. Keep at it guys, maybe this is a direct representation of how many slices of pie I send to you via mail at the cut off date. Bogi, You're going to have a sea can worth of pie coming at you.

    Well, this morning there is some rare pie to be had. I thought I'd toss in a little update for Bogi's sake. He should like this a bunch.

    Dang! 6 million as well Bogi! You're just flying past them milestones. I think the only thing that makes it more impressive is the near 1.2million Boinc points that you bring to the table too. Congrats Bogi!

    I think I've found 2 local buyers for my video cards, my parents are taking a fair chunk of my old rig to get a PC in home for themselves, and the remainder of parts are / have been getting sold off. All in all it looks like everything is accounted for without the need for a FS thread. :laugh: I shouldn't have to wait too long to get another i7 processor, ram, hx1000 and motherboard. From there I'll get 3 more nVidia cards, which type to be determined. GTX260 and up I'm thinking.

    Sadly, this will still place me behind the behemoth known as Bogi in projected PPD. How does that work, eh? Even if I aquire 3-4 grand worth in computer items, Bogmali still outpaces me.

    Where is Mmaakk indeed. Last I heard (according to my current status thread) he's been kidnapped and locked in a shipping container. Anyone want to go to South America to have a look around? We could use the big guy back for his points and his comedic relief. But mostly his points. :p


    Boy, if it were winter and everyone were here, we'd bust PPD all over HWC's face, crap in their shoes the next morning and then never call them again.

    Everyone is stepping up massively. I've trippled my daily output and I'm still in the same position I was a month ago. (about 26th amongst active folders). I was passing people like a Enzo in a crowd of tricycles. Now, I'm covered in dust and feeling like I'm pushing a hand-cart.

    What can I say folks? They only beat us by 2k yesterday, we've extended the overtake time to 1.2 years from 4.5 months. We need to keep this up, we're all doing a freaking awesome job and answering the call.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]
    Nyahh! You seem to be out of my reach mx500, you're hitting 46k as per EoC stats. I'll have my third place pie yet. As for the rest of you, do you realize the top 10 now has a 20k + requirement? Just weeks ago it was 8k+. Bogi is hitting 83k, Buck hitting 113k. Amazing numbers guys, I'll get myself back up there.

    Good work everyone!!

    Today's list is 5 lines longer than the prior days! And I think we've got 4 milestones that are mentionables, so I better get started. I'm starting with you today only because you're at the top of the list. The rest is pure coincidence. Bogmali blasts past 6 million PPD today in a brazen show of silicon. The amount of electronics this man must have to bend to his will to achieve these numbers show traits that are beginning to mirror those of our glorious leader Buck. He's already made threats of activities that could be mistaken as usurping our glorious leader. Could he have more planned? What more will we see from Bogi?


    Congrats. :toast:

    [​IMG]

    Next down the list is deathmore hitting a brilliant 250k today, showing the world that, uh, eh, he hits 250k today. Congrats, and here's hoping for more.

    [​IMG]

    EnergyFX hits 50k with ease now that he's got the added power of his gaming rig spurring the efforts. With your current numbers, I bet you could hit 250k before you revert the GTX 280s back. Well, here's hoping anyways.

    [​IMG]

    I'm blind and have skipped over hertz9753 in the list. But anyways, he accounts for our 4th notable milestone tonight as he brings in 100k with ease. Why with ease? Because just 5 days ago, he joined our ranks. A wolf in sheep's clothing, this newcomer casually slaughters all in his path upward. Fold on you crazy mother. :rockout:

    Hehe, some guys got booted but good. Also, mx500 makes a return the stage all righteous like. I imagine that when you guys see the MPA picture you get all starry eyed and wistful. You yearn for nothing more than the award. I mean who wouldn't? Look at it. Its got a nice crisp white background and delectable, yet peculiarly shiny, pie. What's not to like?

    Got another 7k ppd coming online tonite. After that, I'm all tapped out electrically. I still have 2 slots in my HTPC that I can call into play if necessary. I need to go shopping for 12/3 electrical cords again.:laugh:

    Been having a lot of power problems for the last several days and my PPD has been down 4-5K. :wtf: Also, forgot to disable auto-updates on my server and it rebooted on me causing me to lose 2 cores crunching time and 8800GT folding for a couple of days. :banghead:

    That's funny. My brain feels the same way after last night.

    So no doubt you guys have gone without pie for a few hours, but have no fear. Although I was thoroughly incapacitated last night, I had the presence of mind to save last night's pie. I'm about to pull it out of the oven and serve you guys some of the tastiest breakfast / lunch pie you've ever had. That's right, I'm going to update you guys so hard you will all taste pie in the back of your throats for weeks.


    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    Now, I actually don't want to show this. Why? Because it illustrates how thoroughly mx500 and msgclb handed me my ass last night. Some of our newest members are making a showing too, but thankfully I've got the horsepower to keep them at bay. Though I will say this. Bogi hasn't seen the last of me. So if msgclb and mx500 want in on that mess, then you better believe I'll respond in kind. Nobody but me takes my third place pie.


    Oh, and Bogi? You've only got second until I come for that too.

    Lots of numbers today, but no one tripped one of the notables mentioned at the start of the thread. Does that take away from anyone's achievement? Hell no! Sneeky shows us that he's just getting started as he travels down the path to F@H Multimillionaire, Paulie proves how active he can be with a quick blast of 10k in a day, a couple of our members align themselves for a beautiful first milestone tomorrow, and a couple more endeavor onwards in their quest for more points. For some reason I just had the urge to reference Lucy Lawless. I'm sure that's wildly unrelated though.

    Good work everyone!

    Phew, names are dropping now! Not only is competition getting rougher for pie over here, but WCG pie is looking like its getting more confrontational too. Great seeing both teams continuing to prosper. Though I don't think Bogmali is going anywhere anytime soon.



    Yes, TPU excels at one thing, and that's delivering those fiery kicks of scrotal damnation! If I had my way, I'd go around handing out tremendous groin trauma to all who stand in our path.


    Which, oddly enough, applies directly to you as well mx500. I'm not sure when, or even how, but mark my words. You will have my PPD defenestrating you with the force of 105 megatons of TNT. That's 1.05 times the planned yield of the Tsar Bomba and 2.1 times its actual yield, so you know I'm talking serious business. My PPD will be akin to the fist of an angry god striking your nethers.

    You are forewarned. It will hurt.



    Bogi, I'll be back for you.
