    I didn't but my roommate did. He feels partly responsible because of his big mouth. If it weren't for him loudly blabbing about how I should lock it up, nobody would ever have known it was under the bed!

    I am gonna bring him out to dinner, when I get back. Least I can do. ;)

    I want this one. :D http://www.kensington.com/us/us/v/4482/1647/clicksafe®-laptop-lock#.U9mln_ldXdk

    Thanks!! :toast:

    OK!! A small drop off but, a job well done to keep it close. Also, it appears the Russians have dropped below us!! Count that as another Country TPU is besting!! :laugh:

    Looks like the Geeks at RIT have taken our 11th spot, on the All Time points list. :p Punks!
    Anybody live in New York State? Know how to blow a Transformer? :roll:

    OK, I did not make it all the way to Winona,MN, today. But I did manage, with a 40 lb bag, to get to Pepin, Wisconsin. About 80 Miles, or so. The Hills over here are killer's! Unladen, probably would have got there well before dark. As it is, I was in terrible pain, about twenty miles from nowhere. Dude, or, Sir, in Maiden Rock, told me that there were a couple of places in Pepin to stay. He also said it was 10 miles. It was 13. He also said there were no hills. It was up and down the whole way, however, nothing like the previous climb to Bay City.

    That was a two mile pain fest, up 1645 feet!

    I finally got here, Pepin, around 7:30 pm. With about 30+ miles to go, to Winona. I took a very long, very hot, shower and headed down to the Third Base Bar, "The last stop before home." I had a Meat Lover's Pizza and three beers and a Maker's on ice. Met some interesting folks and, generally, had a great time.

    Now, I am ready for bed.

    But not before posting the Number's!!

    So, here we go!

    2,841,443

    There it is.

    [​IMG]

    Still in the Top 20, where we belong! So, that is good!

    So, again, I have to go in the morning, the rest of the way. This place has a small Breakfast , Juice and Bagel's, and then I am off on the road, again. I am gonna stop, about 7 miles from Winona, to get a rack and a trunk bag. If I can lighten the load, enough, from my shoulder...I might ride back home. As it stands now? I am thinking of booking an Amtrak ticket home.

    $41 seems well worth it!!:confused:

    :lovetpu:

    Have a good night and Crunch it like you stole it!! Let's hit 3 mil on Friday!! :clap:

    I got to Winona around 7 tonight. That included a few pit stops and a stop at the bike store for a Rack and Trunk Bag. It makes a difference but, I booked a Train back home. For $24? Versus two days of pain? Priceless!

    I am not as young as I thought! However, I did make it here, and I am proud of that! I learned a valuable lesson about packing too much, along with re-learning my pain limits!

    On to the number's...

    A little better today!!

    2,863,899

    [​IMG]

    We remain in the Top 20!! I love it there! :rockout:

    I am gonna stay in tonight. I just finished a half of a pizza and I am watching the Twins-White Sox game. I have a couple airplane bottles of a good Brandy, medicinal purposes, muscle relaxers...:laugh:

    Have a good night Team TPU, see you tomorrow.

    :lovetpu:

    I will post tomorrow but, it may be a late one. I am going to go see the town tomorrow, ending with a bit of a bar hop home!! So, be prepared for it!! :D

    Pain equals red and brown, for me...[​IMG]
    Amazing that this paint wheel is nearly exactly how I feel. It is strange when I find images, randomly, that so closely match what I see, sometimes!

    OK, a drop off on the number's.

    I am ok and not ok with this. I am also drunk, and happy about a number(ha,ha) of things.

    Our number, is a sorta happy thing...

    [​IMG]

    20th tonight...not bad but, on the line. Let's push it a bit... I know what we can do!

    [​IMG]
    A Great Movie!!!!!!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Exactly how I feel. I have a Subway Sandwich, that will, hopefully, make me feel closer to not drunk...wish me luck!!

    I am gonna turn on the TV and drowned out the rest of this!!

    OK, tonight's number is brought to us by @TRWOV and his brilliant find and step by step guide.

    TPU's WCG/BOINC Team

    I have set it up and it is running fine, although it has yet to register a retuned WU, I expect it will, shortly!

    Props!

    You all should check it out for some extra FREE points and extra work done for WCG!

    Number's...right, that's why I'm here!

    2,860,466

    Another nice up, let's keep it Crunching!!

    [​IMG]

    Held off 4 countries and managed to, BARELY, stay in the Top 20!!

    Nice Work TPU Crunchers!!!!

    17th, Nice.

    May I also mention we beat L'Alliance? I just did. Why? You may ask? Because that is Epic!!

    Those Francophones have regularly left us in their wake! Not TONIGHT!! No,No!

    Well, another good day!!!!!!!!

    3,116,022

    Nice Work!!

    [​IMG]

    19th tonight!! Nice!

    It appears L'Alliance, and Russia, boosted back up and passed us. Oh well, we'll get 'em another day!!:laugh:

    That Azure thing I have running? Pumping them out! 34 WU's on last count, in a little over 2 days. Not bad! The Amazon Server is mega slow! It will eventually produce something but, they have throttled the one CPU I have down to around 10% usage. They have a crazy weird setup but, it's free and it means more WU's, eventually, so as long as it is running, I'll take it!!

    Anyways, Awesome job Team TPU!!

    You are only hogging the Amzon and WCG servers if the deadlines for the WUs are not met.

    Arjai, set a profile with 0.0 buffer and 0 CEP for the Amazon VM. It takes 2-3 days with a single (normal) WU, if you have a buffer you might get several late WUs as Chevalrc1 says.

    edit: Now that I think about it, you should disable MCM too.

    Yea!! TPU Cruncher's on a ROLL!!! @Norton I can't wait for this next Challenge!! With the roll we're on and a few new Cruncher's...

    4 MILLION!! Let's get it goin'!! :D

    3,167,621

    Nice!!

    [​IMG]

    It seems a bunch of other Teams, out there, have been ramping up, a little, more than us. Used to mean 3 million got us a solid Top 20. Now, it barely get's us in!! I have to thank @t_ski for stepping up with the server board and keeping us afloat! I wish I could get my crap in a basket and help out more!

    One of these days.... Meanwhile I have an extra eight cores cruisin' for another 20+ days and the 1/10th of a core on Amazon for the year, not really much from that one. But every little bit, right? ;)

    Anyways, Thank You TPU for being a bright spot in my measly dark spot of existence, it has become, lately. I will shine again, but it is a long way up from the bottom of this hill.

    Good number today but, a little drop off. :oops:

    3,061,883

    [​IMG]

    22nd, if I counted correctly. Not so stellar. I hope we can liven it up and hit the Top 20 before the dreaded weekend lull!

    Keep Crunchin'!!

    OK, Sorry about the gap in posts. I am completely broke because I spent all my money while on Holiday. Therefore my hotspot was not paid and is not functioning until I pay them, the 14th. So, I will be camping outside the coffee shop, when it is not raining, to post these until Thursday...

    Meanwhile, I hope everyone has had a super Funday Sunday!! I spent it relaxing with a book, until a few minutes ago. :D

    So, for the number...

    2,753,956

    Not so stellar but, Very good for a Sunday Funday!

    [​IMG]

    We managed to crawl into the Top 20, again, so...Yea!!:laugh:

    I hope everyone is when and I hope I can continue posting, on the sidewalk, until Thursday without any rain delays!

    Stats will not be ready for another 74 MINUTES, according to the WCG site. I need to get up at 5 am and ride my bicycle to work. So, sometime tomorrow afternoon, I will update this page.

    Meanwhile, have a good night!

    Stats came out earlier this evening but they weren't completely accurate- WCG techs are rerunning them...

    OK, so, a little late but, I had some important errands to run. Including, but not all inclusive, getting a Grinder to cut through the lock on my Schwinn. I lost the key, a while back, and cannot seem to find it. Bulldog, the company that made it said I need the number's off the key, to get a key. so, that is why I now have a grinder, and a 50' extension cord, to cut through the the U-Lock. It might take a while but, that is the plan for the morning.

    Anyways, the long trip, by bus, is why I am late.

    On to the number!!

    2,873,428

    A little drop but, no matter. We will recover. Right? :D:D

    [​IMG]

    21st, tonight. Ut Oh!! Gotta get back to Crunching!!

    Anywho, I hope everybody has a great night, and a pleasant tomorrow!! Oh, and I hope we can all Crunch a little more, a little longer, and get back into the proper spot for us, the TOP 20!
