Great job Team!
Why is WCG updating so late sometimes I can get number's at 6 PM CST and usually by 7. It is now after 8 and it is telling me it won't be ready for another hour!! Oh well, until then, Movie time!! see you then.
I'm not sure, but I guess it has something to do with the recent time change. FreeDC has been the same way lately; used to be ready a little after ~8:30 and now the final update doesn't occur til much later.
OK, The number's...
Nice jump!! 18th Tonight!!
AND, We did what seemed impossible, just a few days ago. We beat the French!! Feels good, no?
Awesome job tonight!!
Great work Team-TPU
OK, the number's tonight....Very nice. But,
This number fell just short.
We maintained our 18th spot, which is Stellar!!
However, we lost to those pesky French by around 19 thousand...close but no cigar!
Mixed Feelings....This pretty much sums it up!
Nice Work Team TPU!
Great job Team!
@Arjai- these are for you
Well, i'll take 2/3 that say we beat the French.
Let's keep up the fine work
@Arjai: that's a beautiful pic posted there
Those are nice but...see the posts in the Formula Boinc Thread. Perhaps it might explain my manic wants!!
Formula BOINC is a year long deal isn't it?
286 days to go....can you stay manic for that long?
Related question- does that competition includes non-WCG BOINC projects?
It includes all BOINC projects, and also as separate races. i.e. WCG.
As long as the French are within striking distance, or beating us, I will be Manic!!
There is ABSOLUTELY no good reason why we should lose this! It is simply just a lack of focus towards a goal!
Why can't we have a Goal outside of winning short Challenges?
BTW, this what we have been going on about...http://formula-boinc.org/projets.py?lang=en&prj=57&year=2014
Extended runs on anything with the throttle mashed to the floor will send a piston through the block
As long as we spread the word, encourage others, and help each other keep our rigs going we have already won.
I know you are kidding but, most of the Hot Rod's are too busy benching and breaking crap. We here at Team TPU/WCG are in it for the duration and can withstand more than a few drag races a year! This should be a cake walk, as long as we don't just shut down between Challenges! I know, I know, it can cost lot's o' money to keep a Farm at 100%. I'm not asking for that, half our team would melt by mid July! My request is to just a machine, or two, extra at half speed or quarter speed. That is still plenty of Horsepower to win this formula thing!
OK, enough with the analogies, we just need to keep in the over 3 mil consistently to win. We keep fluctuating down to 2.8, 2.7 then back up to 3.1, 3.4 (I am not intending to be factual, so these are not exact). If we can smooth that out to 3 to 3.4 mil a day...by November, plus the challenges, we will win this!
You can bet the French want it! Look how consistent they have been recently!
This is an easy goal, unless we lose sight of it!
OK, See? This is EXACTLY what we need to do!!!
3.4 Million, 17th in the World!!! AWESOME!!!!!!
AND, we put the French where they belong, behind us!
Nice work Team TPU!! Keep Crunching!!!
2 Days, 2 3+ million and 2 beatdowns!!
Purple/ Orange-ish pride forming....
17th in the WORLD/ UNIVERSE, Tonight!!
Neither of these can do justice to the vibrancy of seeing the numbers today, for the first time! But, it is hard to duplicate what I see sometimes. Take my word for it.
I freaked a bit when the WCG page loaded and I focused on our number sitting above the French number. My friend, Brooke, snapped me out of it, she said ,"Hi", while walking past. It took a second to see her. The orange-ish purple faded into a yellow-ish red, when she spoke, then I saw her.
She calls me 'Chard" and when she says that it invokes that yellow red, often.
Anyways, After a second 13 hour day...I am wandering. Sorry.
Nice work TEAM!! This is exactly the fuel we need to win the Formula Boinc.
My cellphone does not seem to have enough ram to run WCG (512MB RAM with about 230 MB available, FAAH needs 250MB). It runs Einstein@Home though since like an hour.
Looks great, 2 days of besting the French! Great work team, I knew we could do it.
Alright!! Again a Great output!! This Team is starting to become a bit more consistent!! I LOVE it!
17th, again, Tonight!! That's a great place to be among the World of Cruncher's!! 30,150 other teams out there and we, 59th in team member size, are beating Teams that are much larger! We have, currently, 575 Team member's. We have beat, for the third day in a row, a Team, France, with 2,014 member's, 23rd in size! L'Alliance Francophone, which we are trailing, and have beat, sometimes, is 10th in size with 4165 member's!! IBM Rochester, whom is just in front of us tonight, is made up of 541 member's. However, one might notice the team is a part of the worlds largest supercomputer manufacturer.
Can I possibly make this any clearer? THIS TEAM, made up of nothing more than a bunch of civilians, well and an MIT school in Lithuania , is simply AWESOME!! AND getting BETTER, every day!!
OK, some entertainment.
It is Agnes Martin's BD!
I'm a Math Geek, fo sho!!
A little Anime showed up...
Kitty says, "Wha?"
And finally, one of the 50 or so Alanis pics that popped up in my Google search. Why is she related to this number? I may never know, and probably couldn't care less.
This one was picked for no reason, at all.
OK, I think I like the Kitty pic better. And....
It may have been the yellow sweater that did it, I've had a moment to reflect since I wrote that, up there ^ , and that has to be the reason.
3 nights, 3 Beatdowns and 3 Three mil + days in a row!!
Great numbers TPU, another day of besting the French!
And great post @Arjai
OK, Sunday Funday struck!
Number's are down. Seems everybody, well, except Ripple, was a bit down. Sundays always seem like a crapshoot. Who's gonna be the one to leave the Boinc running, instead of gaming or, in the case of our nemesis, France, enjoy family and friends with wine and food.
No matter, I know, for FACT, the French can't claim the Awesome-ness we have here at TPU!!
Let's get back to it. It will not be Sunday again, until next week. Right?
OK, Still in the top 20. 19th tonight, impressive for a Sunday!
Still feel Yellow-ish, despite trailing the French, tonight.
Not only is this Tabby emoting my exact feelings, it popped up in a search for "yellow-ish".
I miss my Tabby, French Fry. I know, ironic name, no? He was a great cat, despite my roommate, who decided to drive it miles away and abandon him, again, and lie to me about it.
I found him as a kitten, on a cold January day. I was making a Miserable, Cold, walk home from the neighborhood watering hole. Feeling lost and alone, girlfriend had left me the night before, I heard a small, Meow. I gave it no mind.
A few blocks later, another, "Meow." I stopped, turned around to find this skinny, matted, orange-ish tabby looking me straight in the eye. It was obvious, to me, he had followed me in the hopes of some sort of charity. What I saw was a cat, so what?
Well, this thing followed me the rest of the way home, right up to my door. I looked down at him, he gave me a heart-wrenching-purring-whine, I let him in.
Had to spend money to have him put on some antibiotics, he had some virus he picked up eating crap to survive. It was well worth it. Sad my roommate was such a prick.
Anyways, French Fry taught me that I could be loved, despite the cruelty I had been through.
I miss him, greatly.
Anyways, Nice, half-assed, job tonight Team TPU!!
Ok, Nice recovery from the weekend, or Sunday at least!
Still 19th, in the UNIVERSE!! Not bad, at all. However, I know we can be better!
Tonight's number's are brought to us by, GearHead.com, selling, proudly, Polaris parts. Polaris is a Minnesota company. Gear Head? Don't care.
Anyways, they have a carburetor jet with the part number, 3130133. Thus, this carb jet is our sponsor!!
Another cat picture, this time a Black Beauty.
How about a Dog pic?
Water Cooling? This outta do it!!
Nice work Team TPU Crunchers!!
Oh, it's been done. Saw this on imgur recently.
The Disco ball is classic!!
I too have seen some crazy car part, motorcycle part mods. This one looks almost pristine in comparison of some I've seen!
OK, Number's are a little down, even for Ripple, today. However, despite that we were a bit better than the rest in the down day. What does that mean? Read on...
16th! See, we were 19th yesterday with over 3 million. Today, we were down some but, not as much as the rest of the cruncher's. We jumped 3 spots on an off day!!! Does anyone else see the greatness in this? Ripple Labs is down over 15 Million points, since yesterday! Yet we were able to jump three positions!! Amazing!
That is the type of commitment to Crunching this team needs to continue to emulate! It is this sort of thing that clearly shows our commitment, to those that are paying attention. People want to join winning teams, WE are a Winning team, on many levels. By continuing our dominance over France, we will win the Formula Boinc, see the thread in our Forum for occasional updates, by me. That win further the wants of new blood to join OUR Team, the Winning Team!
Is there a flaw in that line of bull, um, logic?
Stallone? I guess he has moments of clarity, between being a dufus and lifting weights!

Great Job TEAM TPU!!
OK, the new site had me looking around a few minutes but, found what I need to do this! Yea!
So, we dropped a little more. Numbers and position. Here I thought we were gonna be improving?
Nevermind, here's the number tonight:
We are 18th tonight, and we managed to hold off the French. About the only good thing about this!
Look, we made this clown frown!
This poor woman is Crying!!
Even kitty looks distraught!
We can do better Team. I know there are up's and down's. But this is a kinda big down! Let's turn them up for a couple days!
Kitty needs some Happy!!
Crunch ON Team TPU!!!
