    Ok, so just as the title states, don't we all. Well, I sure did and I finally hit the 1 million mark in under a year. 10 months to be exact. It's a great feeling knowing you contributed 1 million points to help kick cancers ass! :rockout:

    The same way I experienced a great milestone like that, I want you'll to do so as well. So here's my offer to you guys. Ready?

    Show dedication, show me that you are working hard to help TPU climb to the top and also help the cause we all crunch for and i'll reward you. How? Well, I have a total of 14 threads and growing of crunching power. I'll put one or two or all three rigs to crunch for you till you reach your next milestone. How's that sound?

    Well fuckers, pucker up and show me what your made of, and I'll lend you'll a helping hand :toast:


    We are going to kick this off with the first person, this was not planned. This person needed help to get into the WCG F@H contest so I lent him my i7 rig and the QX rig. For some reason i thought it felt so good helping some one reach a particular milestone or achieve something that I thought of doing this more. So although he is in the contest, I've decided I'll stick around till he hits 150k or so.



    List:
    User-----------Milestone
    JrRacinFan-----From 100k to 150K
    kpresler----------from 705k to 1 million in just over 1 months 1 week
    stanhemi--------------from about 850k to 2million in about two weeks, see link below
    Soylent Joe------------From 65k to 100k

    Special Milestone to honor stanhemi and his contribution to the team. Get well soon buddy :toast:

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?p=1882440#post1882440

    He went from under 1 million points to almost 2 million in just two weeks time at the most. We will continue to crunch for him for as long as it is needed. :rockout:

    Hello sir, we've never met before, but I think it would be smashing if you'd lend me 1, 2 or 14 of your threads. Cheerio!

    No need for the sad. I would rather you help someone who is striving for a goal in the short term.
    I'm just a lifer. :toast:

    I was just kidding bro :toast:


    Tim, don't take this the wrong way, I would love to. But I can't just help everybody who comes to ask bro. Jr is a different story because it all started out with the contest. You'd be one of the crunchers I'll love to help out the most because of the dedication you've shown and have not let nothing bring you down. But it just can't work this way bro, sorry.

    That is an awesome idea CP!!! The more motivation the better, my milestone goal is 100k. I am very slowly creeping my way up. I have a Phenom II on its way to crunch and that should give me a boost, I'm also trying to convince my parents to crunch their PC.;) Congrats on hitting your 1 million mark- you've been crunch'in hard my friend.:toast:

    Hey speaking of milestones....this is my 1000th post.:D

    Awesome idea CP, but don't even consider me. I'm doing way to well to qualify, I'd rather you help someone like Jr or Wile E. I recently upgraded my farm, bringing me up to ~18-20 threads, most of which are on 24/7

    A Phenom II is going to give you a nice boost, at least 2,000 PPD I would say. Congrats on your 1000th post bro :toast:

    Thank you for being understanding Tim. Keep doing what you are doing, you're doing great. :)

    It can be anybody, it's just to a particular milestone, then I'm off to help somebody else. Don't wanna stick with one person for too long because then I won't get to help everybody I want to help.

    I didn't realize you upgraded to 18-20 threads. That's a nice arsenal bro, no wonder you've been getting some pie lately :p

    I'm current crunching on:
    Q9400 (4 threads)
    Q6600 (4 threads)
    X4 955 (4 threads, but it's El Fiendo's)
    E6550 (2 threads)
    E4500 (2 threads, but it's El Fiendo's)
    P8600 (2 threads)
    2xPentium M laptop (2 threads)
    2xPentium 4 Celeron (2 threads)
    So a total of 22 threads, most of which are on 24/7. The only ones that I know aren't is the E6550, which is on 15/7. I think the Q6600 is on 24/7, at least it appears to regularly be requesting WUs from WCG 24/7, so I hope it is :p

    Thanks, hopefully I can start getting pie more regularly or at least top-15 everyday (yesterday I barely did, today I was obviously higher, but that was temporary due to several days of cached WUs validating from the Q6600).

    What are you crunching on currently? (even if it's under another account)

    Only rig I overclocked was my i7 because it gave a nice boost for gaming, etc. and just browsing around. But I put it at default because of heat, I just got tired of it.

    So my other crunchers I just rather crunch them at stock and preserve them a bit rather than push them and have them fail prematurely.

    you do have a good point with having them last longer but that isn't going to change anything for me. I still am going to overclock all of my crunchers (not a max clock but easily reached clocks with reasonable voltage for a balance of points/heat/life time) but also i have low/mid/older hardware crunching so i need the boost that i get from overclocking. :ohwell:

    Wow, that's actually really funny that I was so close :roll:
    I guess my 1 WCG credit /mhz /core estimation works pretty well then (at least for Core 2/Regor/Deneb) :cool:

    You need to OC that rig, it's sad my laptop does more points than that (~700/day currently) :p
