    I understand you are inquiring about my big rig?

    Keep on looking at my stats for the next week. May get interesting.

    But I must bow at Bogmali's farm. I'm impressed. I'm an old folder from the Quad days with dual Linux clients and Vmware setups - when babysitting was part of the Folding vocabulary. His farm was a dream in those days. :toast:

    I have to admit you guys have an amazing Set of folders here as well.

    However, the ETA with me is 2 weeks, and with only a gap of 30K ppd between the teams... well I'll be closing that gap hopefully.

    For the greater good people.

    I know it's not much, but expect me to be adding a GTX 260/216 soon. Just a bit more setting up and I'll be set up for almost 24/7 folding/crunching :rockout:

    Trust me, we are doing whatever we can to widen that gap!;) Kudos to HWC for bringing such a high level of competition to the table. Kinda makes you dig way deep down and always brings out the best in both teams!!!

    Throw a 9600GSO in there for 60 bucks and double your ppd from a 3870.

    Operation Anvil - Set to Commence in 3 days.

    You guys are true sports, and it is nice we can all go towards a good cause.
    One day we will see that this is something noteworthy.

    I know its valid science, as one of my co-workers was the first to work on Protien Folding back in the 70's.

    Good Luck, and good Folding TPU.

    I'll also be meeting 'Operation: Anvil' with a little something of my own. Should be around when my last 9600GSOs arrive. I'll be putting out ~45k PPD.

    Past that, I'm still waiting on parts for my second i7 rig which would deliver an additional 30k.

    Guy's excellent work on Sunday(853K ppd), but those shifty Canucks are up to something. They pulled off 757K ppd and look to be working on a upward trend. There no telling what the have hidden under those loose fitting flannels. Does anyone(read:resident spy=El Fiendo) know if Operation Anvil has commenced and WTF is it?

    Not sure what they have going on. It seems that a few folders will be be adding hardware in a couple of days. I ordered a GTX 260 last Thursday and it should be here Tuesday.:)

    Gentlemen,

    I believe I have some of the answers you seek. Soultribunal was not behind these attacks as he remains at a PPD total. However I have created a handy list of those who are responsible for the damage done over the weekend.


    List:

    sswilson
    Perineum
    Nademon
    stoanee
    SugarJ
    bwm
    redwagon
    BadAtCards
    ontariotl

    As you can see it is mostly a few members who're either getting their rigs online, or are recovering from a PPD slump. There's a few others with smaller, yet still apparent gains. What's more, is that there are a few members who've recently dropped to 0 in the past few days. Assuming that they will come back online within a few days, we are looking at another surge that could bring them with in spitting distance. Do not fret, I'm naturally a good spitter. As for Soultribunal, as of this message he's just had an update for 1140 points. We shall see what develops very shortly.

    If you should want any of them eliminated, I offer assassination services too. Those cost extra though.

    As a spy, information is crucial - you Live, or you Die by it.

    You lack a few major players in there - pay more attention to our players rankings if you wish to provide accurate data to your Superiors - eerh, Teammates, that is.

    I'll be adding a 9800GT when it arrives this week. Might have to reserve one day to some testing since it's a low power card with no external power connector. It sits on a physical x4 slot that has been cut for the card to fit, but according to this site http://pinouts.ru/Slots/pci_express_pinout.shtml the power from the slot only comes from the first pins. Either way I'm going to solder some wires to the +12 holes where the 6-pin would be to a molex connector for some added juice to aid in the overclocks. Onlyreason I went with the low power card for space reasons.

    You're correct, to a degree. Though I will say I'm in no danger while spying on you Canucks as I am a master of disguise. Attached picture is related.

    I've put a new rig online with an additional 9600GSO. My output may be erratic for a couple of days as I need to swap psu's and video cards around not to mention oc'ing the new cpu (Athlon II x4 620). :D

    Anvil due to some delays was cut to only 50% strenght.

    However, the firepower is comming fast. As Rig 2 came online at 50% this week as well.
    I am sure ElFiendo can tell you my PPD is rising Fast. Now that the foundations have been built for Anvil #3, its only a matter of Filling all those lonely GPU Spots.

    Game Time My Friends, Spy all you want.
    It will be easier to see us when you don't have to look behind anyways.

    Regards,
    'The Anvil' ST

    I like this statement which is why I will fire up my 4 8800GT's tomorrow evening because in reality it is kinda hard looking back that is why I have this really huge rearview mirror:D so to me it's a non-issue:toast:

    and ST, that is not the Phase II that I promised to unleash but rather a small counterattack. And I will be watching your PPD sir just to gauge how much water I will let out from the BOGMALI DAM when the time comes;)
