    El Fiendo, I'm guessing that you were talking pie above but there's another milestone for bogmali as he has now passed mmaakk for second place overall.

    As for you wanting to consistently maintain 3rd place pie you'll have to change your color!

    i.e. RED

    And I believe the two of you are destined for some righteous and unholy hell unleashed on your manhood. I don't joke around on that stuff.


    Msg, I'm already posting in excess of 25k, my average just needs a few more days to correct. As for more than your paltry 34k? Well, i7 number 2 is currently being purchased.

    It won't take much to take me as my credit cards are maxed out, my paypal has zero balance, my medical insurance is due and one of my GTX 260 cards crapped out. I don't know whether I should cancel my insurance or challenge you.:laugh:

    I'm looking for donations to replace that GTX 260.:D

    Well, I won't be overtaking you tonight. Coming home to a down network and 12 hours of downtime makes one's heart break.


    Pie![/B
    [​IMG]

    You know the biggest thing is I can't get over how much we've shrunken Buck's pie, and he's been upgrading. Everyone is keeping up and upgrading themselves, and really meeting this challenge head on. Unfortunately we see tonight we need even more. The Canucks jumped to 819k PPD yesterday, while we shrunk back to 643K PPD. Their jump is in part attributable to a few recent member additions. One such member grabbed just short of 70k yesterday.

    I don't suppose any of you know any guys with spare supercomputers sitting about, hmm?

    Ooh, and a more regular name gets dropped tonight. Oily loses his MPA while mx500 swoops in to gobble it up. I'd ask Oily for his opinion, but reports are that he's too busy hiding his face in shame.


    Of course, he tooled me tonight in both projects. So I guess I really have no basis on which to complain.

    Yes, the Canucks have stepped it up, but this is in conjunction with their folding contest. We have to look at things in relative terms. Techpowerup is doing an incredible job based on our team size. I am proud of what you guy's are accomplishing. Keep up the good work and I promise we shall have a folding contest of our own in the future.

    Yeah... and a big fat hangover :banghead: that will teach me to mess with hardware while under the influence.

    DC Stats did not update normally today (it only has one update for the last 24hrs). Unfortunately, even with the lack of updates you placed 11th.

    11th ain't bad! especially considering what it takes to get pie among this crowd. I'm just glad my hardware finally seems to be folding properly.

    Any contribution is good contribution of course :D Everyone has been stepping it up lately. 2 weeks ago I got my 3 slices on 11-13k PPD, now there is little to no chance of that happening :laugh: I blame HWC.

    It's the sad truth, they didn't provide us with an evening pie. But, thankfully it was just a stats issue and we didn't all simultaneously hald our PPD. In fact we closed the gap again back to a ~100k difference. Let's see if we can close that up some. I mean hell, here they are thinking they've already beat us. In the meantime, we're just going to have to be happy that there is plenty of early morning pie.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    Now, I think the real fun part will be when the stats suddenly update all at once. Will Buck have a 300k day according to Free-DC? Will Paulieg claim first place pie with some crazy work unit back log?

    Most everyone is around where they usually are anyways, though this hitch in the system allowed a few people to taste some different pies. Mind you, if I had the financial backing I'd set up 10 different farms each with a different folding name. Probably my name with iterations behind it. The first name would have Prime behind it. Because prime makes everything cool. From there I would own the top 10. Why? Well I haven't figured that out yet. When I do I'll get back to you.

    Well, I can guarantee that there were more milestones today, and I can bet that I'll have missed a few in the onrush of points in the next update it does. However, the 2 milestones that made it through today just so happen to be ones I keep an eye out for. BundyR and
    AphexDreamer both hit the same milestone and share the glory of 50k tonight. Congrats guys!

    So here we see Oily smacking mx500 in the face with various limbs and appendages in what can only be described as an attempt to communicate 'get the **** away from my MPA' to mx500. Fascinating. One of these days, someone's going to swoop in and unseat Bogmali in much the same fashion. And when that happens, I'm going to give that man a medal.

    I waited all last night for it, and was even planning on waiting a few hours this morning to see if we could get an update and pull the wool over everyone's eyes. Unfortunately the website is stuck a couple days in the past, and hasn't updated since long before last pie. Anyways, with absolutely no reason other than 'because I can', I blame the Canucks. Some spy is sapping mah pie!

    So today there is no pie, no milestones and no MPAs. But that doesn't mean they won't be back. And when they are, I expect it to be a big update.

    As for the subjects that don't require that site, like my incessant banter, they're still in plentiful amounts. Here's some now! We seem to have reached a level of around 675-700k PPD. HWC has set their stride to 805k and have started closing the 5.5 million gap by 100k a day. We've got some time, but this is going to be a bit of a battle. I'm in their midst, so I'm going to start hanging out at local computer stores and bashing in knee caps of everyone, leaving a note that says 'Get out of team 54196'.

    Soon I'll move onto horse heads.



    Oh, and here:

    Bogi has a backlog of these. I've taken the liberty and raided his stash for you guys to enjoy whilst we wait. He had a bunch of them piled in a heap below a diving board. The opening theme to Duck Tales was on a loop, with the walls adorned with the heads of Dewey, Huey, Louie, and Scrooge. You are a sick, sick man Bogi.

    We're back after a several day stats hiatus. If anyone is looking at the Free-DC stats pages today, please note they are inflated. Though I would much rather prefer producing the same amount as Buck usually does, like I did today.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    Well, there really isn't going to be too much different about the pie. The top 10 stayed pretty much the same, but I noticed something I'm sure many didn't. It looks like Buck might have himself a Bogmali sized problem.

    [​IMG]

    If this is true, then Bogmali has doubled his prior average before the contest. It also means bad news for Buck. But didn't Buck say he was down a rig until today? Hope you can pull back ahead Buck, Bogmali's can be hard to get rid of.

    With the onrush of points comes the onrush of milestones! The list is long, we only have 2 hitting the mentionable milestones today, though we can easily see there are quite a few more people approaching large milestones themselves. Tonight Dank1983man420 anonymously earns his 3 millionth point tonight, continuing to blast out awesome PPD whilst being entirely quiet. :toast: to you you if you see this man.

    [​IMG]


    Also tonight, hertz9753 shows us what fine hardware he's got at his command as he already blasts past 250k. He's already well on his way to 500k, and makes it look good while he does it. Congrats man, glad you teamed up when you did.

    Phew, and some shows of force here tonight as Buck and mx500 make a resurgence back onto the MPA scene. I can only imagine the sound of Buck's computers wailing through his house. I seem to think it'd be a sound that would slowly drive a man insane.

    Hot damn, we picked back up to 710k tonight, but we still got to scrounge around for 100k more. I'm planning on sticking a rod to the top of my roof and connecting it directly to my i7 rig. I think if the lightning hits it just right it should get a boost of power. Like in crank 2 or something. I'll post back with results.

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    Yes! It looks like Bogmali is getting all up in Buck's grill! Damn! Er, With a mysterious burst of speed, Bogmali surges forward to give Buck a little competition for first. Meanwhile, I continue to perform like crap. We've really gotten alot more juice going, the top ten alone requires 22k PPD. I'm shelling out 30k and its still only good for 6-7th. Good job guys.
