    Great work so far but we need to keep it up, as Norton said! With Ion being out of action later this week, we need to beware. I'd hate for us to lose the lead after such a promising start!

    But it's good work regardless! :toast:

    We must hold them off! :rockout:

    edit: Looks like from the last 24 hours to the last hour they have equaled if not put out a slight amount of more points than us. :eek:

    yeah that last 24 hours they put our more points by a decent amount. Gotta see how this next day plays out but we need to step it up. For some reason my 2600K rig is going full blast fine now on the CPU and GPU. Not much but hopefully that'll do something. If I can, I'll wait till after the competition to install the new SSD.

    Yea I would wait. We probably need all the numbers we can to hold SETI.Germany off for the win. :toast:

    I'll try, as long as it doesn't keep locking up on me, if it does then it's no good to the team if it's just going to probably be returning errored WU's :(. I'm hoping it'll be stable at least another two days.

    Just an update that SETI.Germany has taken a lead on us in the past hour and are quickly approaching our 12-hour point count.

    At 7EST: We've pulled back ahead. (Hourly count)

    Yep, looks like in the last twelve hours we have stilled edged them slightly. This is going to be a really good challenge till the end!

    Well, perhaps I'll have to stay here at school until tomorrow morning instead of going home tonight. That would get he an extra 12 hours of crunching on the farm--or about 35k points more. We'll see :)

    I have to agree with Manofthem on this one [Ion]!! We may need that extra 35K to pull this challenge off my friend.

    I'll see what I can do. I'm thinking I'll stay--or maybe leave tonight but set the systems to shut down tomorrow around 9:30 AM.

    Well as of the last update they have pumped out about a million more than us today. However, at that rate, we'll still hang on to the #1 spot. However, will they be affected by the lack of GPU WU's more than us? I hope they do because if they are crunching mostly on CPU power we might be fucked. :(

    We're still #1, but SETI.GERMANY is cutting in to our margin of lead. We cannot let them win!

    I have all 92 cores/98 threads up and running here now and will leave them up through the end of the challenge.

    Less than 48 hours to go.... it's either going to be close or we're going to get SG footprints on our backs. The win, ours or theirs, will be well earned and deserved as long as we keep up the fight :rockout:

    I have one rig left running GPU WU's, and I've switched over the other ones to run anything I can get.

    Indeed. Nothing like some friendly competition. Regardless of winner, it was fun for sure :toast:

    They hardly use GPU by the look of progress the past 40 days of the top 20 crunchers (SG people for some reason don't allow people to see their hosts!???). We will never beat them in pure CPU crunching but since we only have a few hours left we will make it.
