    Ah-hah! It's clear to me now. The "points" listed on the WCG are only 1/7th what they appear to be. Therefore my 135K "points" listed on the WCG web-site are really only 20K for BOINC and the contest. :ohwell:

    I started on 10/25. I only have @20K so far. I'll never make it. :cry:

    Maybe I should hook up my laptops, or go out and get that Q9550 Microcenter has for $170. Where's my hammer? I need to smash my piggie bank. ;)

    DOES EVERYONE UNDERSTAND THAT THE CONTEST IS BASED ON BOINC POINTS, NOT WCG POINTS!? Don't want anyone feeling like :nutkick: when this is over.

    Not yelling at you Nasty, just wanted to clear that up. Looks like you'll come up some 3000 points short. If you think you'll have problems getting there, some have volunteered to donate points, so ask. I'm in the same boat with you, just too stubborn/proud to ask for or want help.
    NastyHabits says thanks.

    You should be-
    Average Points Per Calendar Day -15,156.05
    That's my current, and looking to upgrade that a bit :toast:

    It's not a race to see who has the most anyways, you just have to get 60k through the time to get into the drawing.

    Best of luck to all, and lets make it a competition anyways, see how many points we can all squeeze out, maybe we can make another forum where we can all talk smack about each others folding/crunching points! :toast:

    No offense taken. I was commenting on my own stupidity. I'm not here to win the contest. I just like being in the race. But mostly I'm in it for the sake of humanity, and the good company here in this forum. :toast:

    You could be a definite problem, but I was telling mosheen that I didn't think he was much of a threat ;)
    If I want to stay ahead of you for long, I'm going to have to upgrade a lot :eek:

    You know if someone were to PM me a Boinc name and password, it would prey on my inexorable desire to put other people's name in my Boinc clients for a week of crunching. Now that both the beauties are up and working, they pull ~ 2k combined and I'm looking to boost that with OCing.

    Its a tragic malady I suffer from, its essentially I'm specifically suggestive.

    I haven't thrown in the towel, but I raised the clock on one PC 25% and added my laptop. Wish me luck.

    I can't throw more hardware at it, the California IRS is going to "borrow" an extra 10% from my pay. :nutkick:

    i wasn't so sure that my dual-xeon can make it in time so i let my webserver (core i7 920) crunch 24/7 too. most of the time he doesn't do much anyways, so why not crunching? ;)

    Not really :(
    You can go to the WCG website, and then "Statistics History", and subtract from your total number all of the points you have received since a certain date and divide by 7, but there is no easy way :ohwell:

    Assuming you're hat_tpu:
    your 7 day average is 979 and your 28 day average is 1020. As long as you keep that 28 day average => 1000 PPD, you'll get 60,000 points in 60 days

    If you want some help, PM me your user name and password for boinc and I'll run it under your name until you reach 60K.
