    It's nice to know that you're appreciated.:D I got this email about 10 days ago.
    I cut back a lot over the summer as my AC couldn't handle the 100+F outside temps.
    I just started 8 cores so in a few days I'll probably get an email thanking me for contributing to the efforts of humanitarian research. :D
    GREASEMONKEY says thanks.

    I know they try to make everything fair, but I think you're right about some projects putting out more than others. I know there are at least a couple people here that will know that off the top of their heads, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them. :eek: :toast:

    Just informing you all that I'm back to crunching (and these forums) after a short hiatus. Should be getting a second (dedicated) rig up soon. P4 3.0 GHz (with HT), nothing major, but still, every little bit helps. Hopefully y'all will accept me back!
    Bow says thanks.

    Looks a whole awful lot like spam to me. Oh dear, has TPU been hacked?! :eek:

    Yeah, pretty strange.

    On a happier note, I did some crunching to see if I could give proper recognition to people who have been improving their ppd. The best I could do is compare the monthly average (from the 28-day total) to the weekly average (listed just as "average" on Free-DC). I only took the 69 people returning work today, so if you happened to be down, let me know and I'll redo the numbers for tomorrow.

    Anyway, here are the top 10 and how much they've improved their output recently.

    I'm trying to get my PPD up now that the ambient temps are going down in my area, it's easier to crunch all the time. Wasn't even a cooling issue for my PC, it was keeping my room cool.

    Since we're comparing 2 averages basically, it probably won't be worth doing it more than once a week. I have it in my calendar to do on fridays. I was going to put it in the team thread, but whatever you think works. No problem here. :toast:

    Well guys, I'm not entirely sure how to word this, but my dad passed on... I was the one that found him. So anyways, I'm not going to be on very much for the next few days.

    Thanks guys. It means a lot.

    All that I ask you guys to do is to keep crunching. I just wish there was a project for what my Dad had. :(
