    I'll probably put up another 8 threads tonight. It may only add up to 40k or so WCG points but it's something.:eek:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Crap I just noticed this. I could have fired my one rig back up but I just dismantled it about an hour ago. Sorry guys. I will leave the other rigs I was going to take down running for a few more days.

    Thanks everyone for going the extra half mile! :respect:

    Our lead has dropped to a precipitously small margin :cry:

    Since we are (almost) all running on CPU WU's now, are there a certain few WU's that are better to run? I'm looking at my queue and I see WU's that are scheduled to take anyway from 4 hours and 2 minutes up to 7 hours and 34 minutes. I'm guessing there's a different weight between the two though.

    Indeed. The longer the WU, the more you get for it. HCC WUs give slightly fewer points/hour than most of the other ones. HFCC is a bit higher, but not considerably. C4SW was a good bit higher, but it ended a month or so back.

    Why the heck did we have to run out of GPU WU's...

    Here is the 6-day average for both teams:
    SETI.Germany = 12564

    Yep, looking like we are out gunned for the finish of the challenge. As you stated Bill, "We did put up a good fight......."

    If the dang GPU WU's would have held out for a couple more days we would have had no probs winning.

    If the gpu wu's came back 4 hrs before the end I think we would still be able to get the lead back :D

    That is as long as TPU doesn't get hacked again... preventing us from getting the word out :shadedshu

    Oh yeah, I'd love to throw my gpus back into the crunch! I hope they come back!!! When I couldn't log in this morning, I messaged on Steam so we we could always try that, if need be :)

    Currently I am taking down a couple rigs for the holiday. If the GPU WU's come back, somebody PM me and I will have two rigs running them.

    At this point it's safe to say we won't win it, but guys, what we did will be remembered all over the distributed computing world! We are remarkable and the run we gave in this challenge was just amazing! We are all winners at the end of the day, thanks everyone for all the efforts :respect:
