    Paulie, when it comes down to the end, if you'd like another set of eyes to verify your findings on who qualifies I'd be happy to lend a hand. You'd need to send me the Official Paulieg Official Techpowerup! Official Contest Screenshot though.

    Question about points: I get vastly different results from free-dc and the wcg sites. Why is there such a difference between the two? I have 2 devices, is free-dc only getting stats from 1?

    I believe "BOINC" points are the qualifier.

    Ouch, I was afraid you would say that. :eek:

    I have 3 rigs busy folding and I have 2 older ones crunching. It looks like I'll have to move another one over.

    As I said before, please eliminate me from the contest. My little "mecenary" quad will be moving along soon anyway, to help in starting another team....

    My best to all of you at TPU. It's great to see how you have grown as a team in the few months I have been here. Kudos to you all, and CRUNCH ON!!

    Regards,
    Bob

    Thanks guys. I will still be seen lurking over here from time to time.

    You folks know where I live. If you need some more "cavalry" support sometime, just let me know...;)

    I'm VERY pleased we got the sub-forum and about how this team has taken off. You guys rock! :rockout:

    Thanks to W1zz for allowing the sub-forum to happen. And thanks again, to all, for your hospitality during the great XS refugee time...:up:

    We'll be keeping an eye out for you in the XS rear view mirror. I'm not saying we'll pull over, :laugh:, but anyway I can help, just let me know.

    Regards,
    Bob

    Looks like things are going well with the contest. Remember that you do have to reach 50,000, so keep crunching hard!!

    I hope another contest runs during the winter so weather does not interfere with my crunching!

    50,000 points in 90 days. Everyone who does this (except for the power users who elected to not participate) will be placed in a random drawing for the case. :D
