    I just want it to be known that I object to the expression "very small team". We big like Rhino.

    Team China doesn't look all that small with 278 active members to our 61. The team that created the challenge is composed of just 1 too. This is a strange one you've booked us into CP ;) :laugh:

    No need to. Both challenges are based on points earned throughout all WCG projects. So points will count towards both competitions.

    I'm doing a 6900 (-bigadv) right now but when that is completed I will switch my last 12 treads to WCG.

    No problem, I was late for a bit since my rigs were down. But I'm back at it now. :D

    ***UPDATE***

    It's gonna be close, but do you guys think we can pass Ukraine before the end of the challenge?

    Standings as of now:
    5. Ukraine - 10,940,089
    6. TechPowerUp! - 10,661,114

    Our points for yesterday:

    TechPowerUp! - 2,040,635
    Ukraine - 1,256,619

    Considering we are only 278,975 points behind and that we outdid them yesterday in points by 784,016 points, we should pass them by a good margin. What do you guys think?

    ***UPDATE***

    Today's spotlight is on whether or not we can catch up to BOINC@Poland by the end of the challenge. Here's how it looks so far:

    5 BOINC@Poland 12,853,366
    6 TechPowerUp! 12,834,688

    Just 18,678 points ahead. CRUNCH HARDDDDDDDDDDDD!!! :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:

    So far today we are outrunning BOINC@Poland by 10k points so far. Gotta keep pushing to finish in the top five!
