    Points we'll probably do a little better in. August, though? I'm all for challenges, don't get me wrong, but what is often the hottest month of the year doesn't seem to be a great choice for one. Oh well, we'll just overuse the A/C, I guess.

    meh, just hit me :banghead: Would you guys rather do all projects? Fine by me, didn't notice till you said it.

    As long as we crunch dude, it's not the best month for maximum output but neither is it for everyone else you know. It's just a good ol' fun challenge.

    You're right, it's just a challenge. I just wondered why August, that's all.

    Of the upcoming challenges that was one of the points one so I picked that one. I'll look again, if anything more suitable pops up I'll let you guys know.

    ***UPDATE***


    Well, in the 20 day challenge we finished 27th, it was the first time doing a challenge with this type of scoring system so it was fun. :)

    As far as the one day Challenge, we came in fourth to some of the biggest and most potent teams, for our size, we totally rocked! here are the top five:

    Rank Team Name Current Score
    1 XtremeSystems 10,968,568
    2 Ukraine 2,803,160
    3 Team China 2,561,709
    4 TechPowerUp! 1,716,312
    5 Team Andrax 1,018,374

    For now, I'll wait and see if anything interesting pops up to join, but in the summer as previously stated by you guys the #'s are down so i'll refrain from joining some challenges until we get back up to speed. :toast:

    Great job guys, definitely we are a powerhouse for the amount of active members we have!

    I agree CP; Usually the summer months is not the best time to count on good numbers. Many have their system crunching 30,40, 50% due to the heat.

    It's been over 4 months since the last challenge, is there anything coming up that looks good?

    So you start a challenge now that I have no power, go figure. I hope it'll be on soon.

    Very small teams....:eek: and China is part of it as well. I predict that we will come in second if F150 gets his power back. Anyway I will keep my crunchers running despite it is getting pretty warm for my hot-runner (i920@3,9 GHz/1.3V/ up to 70 C) since it is sharing room with one of my folders.

    ***UPDATE***


    Here we go, first update of this challenge.

    At this rate we pretty much look like we will be locked in 4th place for the rest of the competition, unless another team joins that can change that.
