    If it gets close, I'll bring the Opty's back over. TPU must be victorious!

    BTW, any special WU's we need to run?

    Yes sir-The Birthday Challenge just compares our Team output to the output of other Teams... you don't have to do anything differently ;)

    There's a link in my signature to see how we are doing on an hourly basis.

    Cheers Norton, I still have the old XML file for multi GPU work units, would it be best to just let it do 4 at a time or should i remove the XML file and just let boinc do other work.

    Whatever you're more comfortable with/get's you the most output. If you're using multi-gpu wu's check our guide for any updates and tweaks:

    If youre rocking 4 WUs on that 7970, you'll be getting more points that the default settings that BOINC would. Maybe even consider running a few more. I ran 6 no problem, and currently doing 10 :D

    Yes sir, all thanks to KieX. I was sitting comfortable at 6, but then he made me feel inadequate :p so i bumped it up to what he was doing. It's still not enough though, as I've lost my #2 spot :banghead: (lost to MStenholm, shweet :toast:)
    Need MOAR POWER! :cry:
     
    KieX, Norton, Daimus and 1 other person say thanks.

    Depending on how many HDDs I can scrounge up, I have anywhere from 3 to 5 more systems to throw on. 4 Core 2 Duo Celerons and an Atom (obviously the lowest priority in the hard drive allotment) :toast:

    It wasn't all that long ago that SETI.Germany was kicking our butt in a challenge! Now we are getting a nice commanding lead on them. :)

    Great day Team! :toast:

    We need to be diligent though... SETI.Germany nearly matched us today :twitch:

    Our 6 million pt lead can be lost in 3 days same as we gained it- hang in there Team :rockout:

    Indeed they did. But we can, at this point, stand to lose 3 million a day to them--which I don't see happening ;)
