    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate every last little point that our team members contribute. That's why I'm proud to be on the TechPowerUp WCG team. Our butt-kickery knows no bounds. Same for the TPU F@H group too.

    Well, we dropped off a little, still an impressive 3.3+ Million!! :toast::toast::rockout::clap:
    We fell behind China, not good. Let's try to stay up on that country. I know we can!!:D

    Oops, here's the pic for today:

    [​IMG]


    On Dec. 4, 1973, NASA's Pioneer 10 spacecraft sent back images of Jupiter of ever-increasing size. The most dramatic moment was after closest approach and after the spacecraft was hidden behind Jupiter. Here, images gradually build up into a very distorted crescent-shaped Jupiter. "Sunrise on Jupiter," a team member said. The giant planet crescent gradually decreased in size as the spacecraft sped away out of the Jovian system.

    Launched on Mar. 2, 1972, Pioneer 10 was the first spacecraft to travel through the asteroid belt, and the first spacecraft to make direct observations and obtain close-up images of Jupiter. Pioneer 10 passed within 81,000 miles of the cloudtops during its closest encounter with Jupiter. This historic event marked humans' first approach to Jupiter and opened the way for exploration of the outer solar system - for Voyager to tour the outer planets, for Ulysses to break out of the ecliptic, for Galileo to investigate Jupiter and its satellites, and for Cassini to go to Saturn and probe Titan. During its Jupiter encounter, Pioneer 10 imaged the planet and its moons, and took measurements of Jupiter's magnetosphere, radiation belts, magnetic field, atmosphere, and interior. These measurements of the intense radiation environment near Jupiter were crucial in designing the Voyager and Galileo spacecraft.

    Sorry it's so late, had to stop at the VA Hospital for some Steri-Strips. Sliced my hand pretty good at work today.

    Anyways, Good Job Team TPU!! We're above Team China!! The numbers are a little down for everybody today, it seems. Perhaps the BETA's slowed things down a little?

    Still a very solid 3.2 million!! :clap::clap::clap::rockout::toast::lovetpu:

    Whirlpool Galaxy and Companion
    The graceful, winding arms of the majestic spiral galaxy M51 (NGC 5194) appear like a grand spiral staircase sweeping through space. They are actually long lanes of stars and gas laced with dust. Some astronomers believe that the Whirlpool's arms are so prominent because of the effects of a close encounter with NGC 5195, the small, yellowish galaxy at the outermost tip of one of the Whirlpool's arms.

    Well, I guess WCG updates stats at 8 Central. So, stay tuned...in 70 some minutes, this post will include all you ever wanted to know about todays point output, in relation to the rest of the planet.

    Healthy Banana Muffins
    by Everyday Food (Jan/Feb 2009)
    makes 12 muffins

    1 c. whole wheat flour
    3/4 c. all-purpose flour
    1/4 c. wheat germ
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 c/ butter, room temp.
    1/3 c. granulated sugar
    1/3 c. packed brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    2 ripe bananas (about 1 pound)
    1/3 c. milk
    1 tsp. vanilla

    1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a bowl whisk together flours, wheat germ, baking soda and salt.

    2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, mash bananas with a fork (you should have 3/4 cup); stir in milk and vanilla.

    3. With mixer on low, alternately add flour mixture and banana mixture to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix just until combined.

    4. Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake until toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25-28 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Let cool in pan 10 minutes, in rack 10 minutes more.

    Nummy!!:D

    Well, after that huge number yesterday, I knew there would be a drop off.

    But, only a small drop and yet another incredible day Crunching!!

    3.9 Million? Nothing to sneeze at! Great job Team!!

    Sorry about yesterday! I was running around from 6:30 am, brake training over an hour away, then back to town, for a quick nap, then clean up and join a pub crawl sponsored by the MN Wild hockey team. We lost to Pittsburgh, badly, and I ended up drowning my sorrows with Whiskey. So, even though I had my computer and one of the bars had wifi, I was glued to the game and forgot about it until this morning!

    Anyways, here goes!

    Numbers dropped off a bit but still 3.1 Million! :toast::toast:

    Oops,:slap: it appears that I mistakenly supplied the wrong numbers as ours! We ACTUALLY did GREAT! 3.35 Million!!:rockout::rockout::peace:

    Not bad but we have and can do a bit better. I know I got sidetracked and didn't crunch yesterday but, I am hardly crunching a half million points, by myself. :p

    Fine work folks!

    [​IMG]

    Let's all try to get the numbers back up, where they belong, OK? Science needs our efforts and our Team needs to prove our respectability! :D We can't let the Chinese think they are better than us!

    Sorry so late!!

    I lost track of time cruising the web, pricing multi CPU boards. The whole time with my mind wandering through a waking dream of someday....

    Ok, so, here's the cold hard facts. We have fallen off the hill we were climbing! I am hoping this lull is merely a holiday blip and soon we will be climbing again!

    I know this team has the POWER to do much better! It is TechPOWERup, right?

    2.9 Million today. Still a healthy number but... enough grumbling!

    OK, OK, it's Christmas! Merry, Merry!!

    We dropped a bit, it's OK. It's Christmas.

    Now, we have to make a point, until New Years, that we exist as a TEAM. Not some fair weather group of computer geeks and nerds that crunch on a whim!

    ION will be back soon but, until then, let's pull together and show the rest of the world we aren't just a 4p and a couple of i7's!

    Alright, I know I am bad at Pep talks. ARMY Training SIR!!
