    Drat! I was hoping to see you even further up the rankings. Solidly placed in daily pie territory. :ohwell: Still, you'll get it in time for more flannel hunting.

    Looking at the dimensions I found on the evga website this example of the X58 Classified 4-Way SLI ...

    [​IMG]

    When you compare that board to this one the form factor will probably be called an EL-XL-ATX and have dimensions close to 13.5" x 13.5". My living room is not much bigger than that.:laugh:

    Right now the only thing I know that it will fit in is the box it comes in!

    Techpowerup.com does not deserve this team! Almost zero support, and no recognition for what we've done.:shadedshu We passed 200 million lately. Nothing.:twitch: I'm willing to bet that there isn't another team in the top 100 with as little exposure as us. We have to have new "recruits" to replace those who decide they have something better to do, foolish as that may be.:D If something isn't done, we will continue to be a dedicated group whose numbers will dwindle over time until the last few members get fed up and leave or quit.:ohwell:

    Anyone have any ideas? Facebook? Twitter? Eharmony.com?

    WTF are you talking about?

    A: People who leave dont necessarily stop. For example I have my own team and fold for that with my laptop and PS3 because my system is down.

    B: All the points go to the same dudes and the cure will go to all of us. It doesnt matter who you do it for or why.

    C: It has been the community state of mind that you come and go as you please. we arent EVEN in it for the points. We are here for a cure. Nobody was/is supposed to feel bad for comming or going. and no one looks to get praise. Not a single person on this team has ever asked for it.

    D: Techpowerup.com in itself does not ow any of us a thing. TPU is a tech media site with a forum that we can all discuss this in. a place to horbour our ideas and combined effort. It was never in any way shape or form really supposed to support us in anyway. While it was always appreciated (like when they posted our top 100 success on the front page) no one ever expected it or took it for granted.



    if that post was some kind of joke im sorry. If it wasnt. then im not. If the mods dont like this post please tell me. I just cant bealive (if this is serious) that someone would take a subject like cancer and get angry because they were trying fight it and no one said thanks. because bealive me friend when we find a cure the human RACE will say thanks

    I think you're misreading his post. He's not knocking people who stop, nor is he after fame and glory. He's looking for a source to bolster our ranks and to further the cause of folding@home. He's correct, we are fairly sheltered on TPU and I say that from experience. If it wasn't for my curiosity on why the topic 'TPU's F@H Team' kept appearing on the recent post list, I wouldn't have found the team. No other reason than I clicked on that topic randomly one day.

    Is it so wrong to want to see something you've put so much time, effort and money into to continue to do well? Especially considering that our team continuing to do well gets the science done as you mention, and more of it in this case. He's not looking to steal people from other teams or berate old members back into action, he wants to bring new members in. 'It doesn't matter who you fold for' does not yet apply.

    Now we have the interesting situation where we don't have a second sub-forum to post in to gain more attention as General Nonsense is no longer on TPU. Most every other team I've visited has posts in separate sub-forums that point to the F@H Team, or site announcements. Buck had recently started some threads in the ATI and Nvidia Graphics Cards sub-forums for this very reason, but these aren't ideal as they are only relatively on topic. Having said that, I'm not requesting them from TPU. If you notice, neither did thebluebumblebee in his post. I'm sure he's only expressing exasperation that we don't have a way readily available to us to get new members, which is what F@H could always use.

    well in that case i do apologise It was just a misreading. Finding a way to get known is hard. TPU does have a twitter though. Its barely used maybe someone could ask w1zz if F@H updates could be posted on it? or make a new twitter? maybe a facebook? you could put all the F@H stats and contests on a facebook and twitter that would get you traffic. Networking is key dudes

    Thanks everyone

    Today I hit a million points. :toast:

    I wish to sincerely thank everyone who's done there best to help keep HWC at bay for at least one more day, so that my personal joy won't be swamped by the inevitable tsunami of doom and gloom that will sweep over the TPU folding team following that event.

    Of course, to the giants of our team, it will be but tiny wavelets lapping on their ankles on the road to TPU total world domination.
