    I missed the last update with a 353pt WU from my 8500GT by ~20 minutes
    Such a tragedy :p
    Congratulations! Now let's see you do 50k! :toast:

    Well, some bad news for the Team. The WCG GPU application iis out, so I'm switched my GPUs over to that. I still have the 8500GT folding, but that's it for now. Don't worry, I'll be back at some point

    Did you win the auction on the other AMD CPUs?

    Oh well, it looks like my quest for a 2nd 480 continues... I'm a bit crazed about it right now, might sell off some computer stuff and pay the 270can for a new one. One of these days I'm actually going to eat again!

    Well, 4P rig #2 has begun. Picked up a couple of Opty 6176's for $280.00/ea today. Should have the other 2 in the next week. I'm setting the total budget for this rig @ $2K and this rig should clock @ 2.6-2.7Ghz and produce 425K+/- PPD. Gonna be a good winter this year!!!:rockout:

    Amazing! :respect:

    So I see you're going for electric heat then :rolleyes:

    So Captain 4P will be doing ~850k+ PPD then. Absolutely amazing. :respect:

    Picked up 2 more 6176SE's. Got all 4 CPU's for $300.00/ea:clap:. Gotta order the mobo/ram and have to build the coolers all over again. Hopefully it will go faster this time. Should be up and running in 1.5 weeks.

    EDIT:Ram/Coolers are ordered:rockout:

    Well, I'll have to sacrifice my 2nd folder, which wasn't folding anyways, and a 285, but I'll get back a 260. I'm praying the 480s go back on sale up here, as I can get a 570 for the same price now, but if not I'm still getting one. I know, not sane, but I'm too impatient to wait, and I'd rather go 680s after this. I should be able to do 1 285 and 2 260s then for folding, and get the graphics power I want on my main system. Seems a fair trade...

    Well after a while of downtime I have returned to F@H. Had lots of issues with my only rig that I used to fold with and now it's sorted out. Up and running with a GTX295 at least for now. :toast:

    Points have been down lately due to the WCG GPU WU's starting up again(yes, I'm talking to you Ion!). With that said, I'll have a double dump of 768K today to help compensate for the slackers:laugh:. 4P Rig #2 should be online in a week and then things will get interesting.

    I don't want to be too premature, but I could prob host another 4P later this winter. I just have to see the electric usage for long term sustainability with the two of them. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this would be my 1st 3-way if i go through with it:roll:.

    :rolleyes: :nutkick:
    Reports are that the WCG GPU WUs could be running out within six months with the completion of the HCC project, so I'd be back full-strength then with 4 Fermi cards (maybe more). And it's not like my contribution was huge, it was only ~5% of the team output. You guys can live :p

    That's awesome that you'll have #2 going so soon.
    I remember what you were telling Norton ("The last build of the year always happens in December"), so I was surprised to see 4P #2 get accelerated from "maybe this winter" to "October". That's more like it :toast:

    And if you'd like to send me some of your G92 GPUs, I have free electricity and can host three of them on my i920 setup ;) :toast:

    Just got wi-fi on campus, so I can run F@H off the PS3 24/7(ish)
    How do I make an account and join the TPU team though? Because it's just running atm, I haven't logged in or registered

    Correct. I'm not too sure how the PS3 FAH application works (I don't have a PS3), but it should be pretty self-explanatory :toast:

    Nawhh it's cool, I got it to work now. Joined the team (hopefully), I'll check the website tomorrow. Changed my name on it to El_Mayo. Do the projects I've run in the past count towards the TPU total, or only the ones completed after I joined
