    I am in. I am one cpu down but still a strong force. Been trying out a new higher overclock on my 2500k@4.8ghz and I have now deemed it definitely stable for crunching, and I am installing boinc now.

    OK Team- less than 10 days to go before the start :)

    Next mission- find some of our idle Team members and persuade* them to give us a hand! ;)
    * guerilla tactics? maybe?

    I just talked a little bit with @fullinfusion and he said he can probably help us out for the the challenge. I sent him the link to this thread so let's hope he stops by and jumps in with us! :roll:

    Yup, he said he's in for sure! :toast:

    edit: he's in for sure, i just need to remind him a few days before we start so he can get his rig spooling up. Pretty awesome of him :respect:

    Just previewed the competing teams and I have one thing to say.......WE GOT THIS!

    LOL, I thought the challenge was starting on the 22nd...so, cranking up everything on the 11th with the intent to actually be "on-time".

    I'd like some of that back. I was having some snow for a few weeks. Then the clouds went away this last week and it is 11f during the day before wind chill. I'll take the clouds and snow if they bring me back 20-30f.
    @manofthem,
    Hows your show and cold free probably lovely weather?

    We have about 6" on the ground now and hasn't been above 2 F for about 4 days. Night before last it dropped down to -23 F. A near by town recorded -42 that same night. Tomorrow evening we are suppose to get about another 8" of snow.......Jeez I am sick of winter already. Ready for some warm weather for some serious wind in my face riding!

    Oh, I've been hearing about this "snow" in recent weeks... Sounds fun. ;)
    I LOL'd so hard! :laugh: :laugh:

    Man, i feel bad for you guys, I really do. Today it was nice and like 84F today, slight breeze, not too bad at all (no nasty thunderstorms like yesterday).

    Everything in my system specs will be running 100% for this. I just need to get a wireless network adapter for the 1045t system(I'll probably stop by Radio Shack for that today) and everything will be ready and going.

    I WANT THAT MOTHERBOARD/CPU COMBO!!!!!!!!:lovetpu:
