    They weren't out then ;)

    But if he had, damn, that would have been incredible!

    Correctly tuned, he could easily add a quarter million PPD or more to our team!

    Well not sure what you going to be selling exactly. I got some cash coming very soon. Was just curious as I wanted to build me something with it.

    I think it's the 4 GTX480's and the cpu load that they put on the CPU.

    But even -smp 14 should give far better PPD than that, considering what a 980X can do...and that's one of the better bigadv WUs that you have
    Because they're defective to to reach a price point?

    For the love of god, yes please! Main rig has been folding for a week straight, but it hasn't been stable the last few days. I'm going to be finishing the race with a broken leg here. nVidia GPU client only. This all started when I had to completely remove ATI drivers and nearly force 10.9 to install.

    Come ON machine, FOOOOOLLLLD! ಠ_ಠ

    Update: Folding on my 4870 despite the risks. It's 92% complete. O_O

    8:00 PM Update: NOOOOO!

    How long do the hourly stats updates usually take (fah-web.stanford.edu)? The page says 5 minutes, but I think I've seen it take 10-15 before.

    I always end up trying to check my points after watching a TV show or something and having it say they're being updated.

    InfinityFX w/ TPU ;)

    Back with TPU for now, I hit my 2mil w/ OCN, now to get 1 or 2mil here as well :)

    I might actually reach milestones faster if I wasn't so compelled to change usernames continually :rolleyes: :shadedshu

    you should "accidentally" set your user name as "p_o_s_pc" (without "") for Tpu :rolleyes:

    I think not :p

    If I'm going to spent my money on new GPUs (entire reason for the GTS450) then I'm damn well going to keep my points :p
