    El Fiendo was on the thread when I posted and I'm not a flunky! :p

    This is the place that I have done the CC and I will be back. ;)

    I've got my two 460's back online folding. If you recall I had issues with one of the cards (a Zotac) crapping out, even blue screening my rig. I've upped the PS from a 520 watt to a 650 watt corsair. I'm inching up the clocks oh so carefully and should be well north of 24K PPD real-soon-now.

    All you have to do is blow on The Horn of Fiendo Summoning and then I generally show up and loiter around for 48-72 hours before sliding back into the shadows. Use it wisely though cause I'll sleep on your couch and play your video games. I always go half on ordered food though so its not all bad.

    You always welcome here, even though you've made questionable team choices in the past.:D

    Due to recent financial priority repositioning (what a nice way to say i need to repair my car...), most of my farm will have to go in the next few weeks. :shadedshu

    Any folder interested in a 24 cores sr-2 or 970/g1.assassin rig should check in the next week for my sale thread to be updated (or just PM me). I'm still digging for each and every thing that could be worth a few bucks...

    I do realize (the :nutkick: way) now that two standard closets can contain quite a few pc/watercooling bits and pieces...

    Well I was going to out of principle and team allegiance, but

    this cemented it.

    And Buck I've always been on team TPU, my name on HWC is where I test my hardware and any overclocks. That way any failed WUs go under their name and keep TPU clean and clear.

    Muahahahaha


    Edit: I see you browsing Bogi. First off <3. Second off, I dislike you. Third off <3.

    Don't try to sugarcoat your way out the fact that you fold for them:slap:

    Wish Mmaakk was here to see this post:rolleyes:

    YOUR MMAAKK CAN'T SAVE YOU NOW BOGI!


    And to be fair I folded for TPU a heck of a lot more recently than HWC.

    Fired up a Xeon 8 core with a 580 also should be good for at least another 50,000 PPD. :D

    Any idea what a dual-Xeon E5420 would do? Come competition time I could put that on FAH for a bit...

    LOL, not trying to diagnose, but appears a little Bipolar...;)

    Gotta admit, I miss your witty, twisted sense of humor. Nice to have you back until you go underground again.

    Well, I'll think about pulling it over to FAH for the duration of the contest--it's not running any of my AMD GPUs, so it wouldn't penalize my WCG performance too much :toast:

    CC, 2 years ago, I had my son's i5-650 (4 threads) running at 4.0 GHz and it got 4-5000 PPD. Last year, I had it running at stock (3.2 GHz) and with the reduction in points for SMP, it was only getting 800 PPD. So my guesstimate would be well under 1000 PPD.

    I'm surprised by that--I tried out FAH briefly on a C2D in January and I was getting ~2.8-3.4k from it (2.8GHz, 6MB L2, 1GB single-channel RAM)

    That 580 with a 900 core will do 46k by itself. :toast:

    Lovely news!

    A single drug can shrink or cure human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver, and prostate tumors that have been transplanted into mice, researchers have found. The treatment, an antibody that blocks a "do not eat" signal normally displayed on tumor cells, coaxes the immune system to destroy the cancer cells.

    A decade ago, biologist Irving Weissman of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California, discovered that leukemia cells produce higher levels of a protein called CD47 than do healthy cells. CD47, he and other scientists found, is also displayed on healthy blood cells; it's a marker that blocks the immune system from destroying them as they circulate. Cancers take advantage of this flag to trick the immune system into ignoring them. In the past few years, Weissman's lab showed that blocking CD47 with an antibody cured some cases of lymphomas and leukemias in mice by stimulating the immune system to recognize the cancer cells as invaders. Now, he and colleagues have shown that the CD47-blocking antibody may have a far wider impact than just blood cancers.

    "What we've shown is that CD47 isn't just important on leukemias and lymphomas," says Weissman. "It's on every single human primary tumor that we tested." Moreover, Weissman's lab found that cancer cells always had higher levels of CD47 than did healthy cells. How much CD47 a tumor made could predict the survival odds of a patient.

    To determine whether blocking CD47 was beneficial, the scientists exposed tumor cells to macrophages, a type of immune cell, and anti-CD47 molecules in petri dishes. Without the drug, the macrophages ignored the cancerous cells. But when the anti-CD47 was present, the macrophages engulfed and destroyed cancer cells from all tumor types.

    Next, the team transplanted human tumors into the feet of mice, where tumors can be easily monitored. When they treated the rodents with anti-CD47, the tumors shrank and did not spread to the rest of the body. In mice given human bladder cancer tumors, for example, 10 of 10 untreated mice had cancer that spread to their lymph nodes. Only one of 10 mice treated with anti-CD47 had a lymph node with signs of cancer. Moreover, the implanted tumor often got smaller after treatment—colon cancers transplanted into the mice shrank to less than one-third of their original size, on average. And in five mice with breast cancer tumors, anti-CD47 eliminated all signs of the cancer cells, and the animals remained cancer-free 4 months after the treatment stopped.

    A Weekly Chat on the Hottest Topics in Science Thursdays 3 p.m. EDT
    "We showed that even after the tumor has taken hold, the antibody can either cure the tumor or slow its growth and prevent metastasis," says Weissman.

    Although macrophages also attacked blood cells expressing CD47 when mice were given the antibody, the researchers found that the decrease in blood cells was short-lived; the animals turned up production of new blood cells to replace those they lost from the treatment, the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Cancer researcher Tyler Jacks of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge says that although the new study is promising, more research is needed to see whether the results hold true in humans. "The microenvironment of a real tumor is quite a bit more complicated than the microenvironment of a transplanted tumor," he notes, "and it's possible that a real tumor has additional immune suppressing effects."

    Another important question, Jacks says, is how CD47 antibodies would complement existing treatments. "In what ways might they work together and in what ways might they be antagonistic?" Using anti-CD47 in addition to chemotherapy, for example, could be counterproductive if the stress from chemotherapy causes normal cells to produce more CD47 than usual.

    Weissman's team has received a $20 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine to move the findings from mouse studies to human safety tests. "We have enough data already," says Weissman, "that I can say I'm confident that this will move to phase I human trials."
