    Would very much like to enter. What would be the proper way to request entry to this drawing? (Or is this good enough?) Also, anyone have an idea of how much shipping would be to the US?

    Far west cost would be a bit more, but probably still less than $30.

    Count me in for sure! :D

    Just for info when i Googled international shipping to find the most economic air freight it was coming in at around £30 ($40) and that was without insurance. It's about 6000 miles if you fly from here to US West Coast via NY. An 8 hour time zone difference :laugh:

    Challenge prizes and qualification update

    Completion of Day 7 of the Challenge will occur tomorrow at 8pm Eastern (24:00 GMT)

    Following the posting of the results thru this date/time we will be doing a final tally of the prizes available. We will also take a look at the list of entrants for the prize drawing(s) and post the entrants for the drawing who have qualified for a prize thus far (i.e. 10,000 BOINC points reached, crunched/turned in points daily, etc.. as noted in the prize post*)
    * This is being done on Day 7 to give everyone entering a fair chance to qualify for the drawing

    If you are not on the lists posted tomorrow, please post here or send a PM to discuss.

    *Note- If you have not done so, Please make sure you have voted in the poll if you would like to participate in the prize drawing(s)

    Thanks! :toast:

    ** EDIT- Also, if you're TPU user name is different than your WCG user name please let me know (post or PM, either is fine) **

    I can't remember if I've mentioned it. I crunch under "xvi_tech.kyle".

    Will we be able to see our scores for the challenge once it's over?

    Come to think of it, not too sure where I'll be for score.
    Sig rig, Phenom II x6 1100T 3.8GHz
    Old sig rig, Phenom II x2 550, 3.6GHz
    Work lappy, C2D Mobile 1.8 GHz (Runs on off-hours)
    Work server, Dual PIII 800 MHz
    Home lappy, C2D Mobile 2.0 GHz
    Mum's lappy, Athlon II X2 ?.? GHz

    16 cores ah-crunchin'?

    Thanks guys! :toast:

    I can check on those crunchers who display their cruncher badge or if the names are close (like you and james888 for example)

    Tracking all of your scores would be tough over the 10 days of the Challenge, which is one of the reasons I'm using the 7 day information... it's already available through FreeDC ;)

    Note- This is where I will be getting the info (under heading "Last 7 days")

    Hello TPU

    Hello TPU,

    I've been following many tech sites for many years but have never registered on any of them until now. I find it wonderful that you are sponsoring / promoting crunching - I was an early adopter of SETI@Home, but eventually lost interest in crunching or folding when I heard that they finished all their workload at some point.

    I'm part-time crunching on my wife's and my own personal rigs (2500k@4.4 GHz and 3570k@4.2 Ghz, normal volts), and full time on a laptop (3210M). I'm a high school special ed teacher, but I teach a computer technology class (basically building and maintaining computers) where I've converted around 11 old PCs running Ubuntu - mostly hyperthreaded single core P4s @2.93 Ghz with a Q6600 and a 955BE thrown in there which were my wifes and my old rigs, which are now crunching full time except for 75 minutes a day when the students are in class.

    I'm glad to be crunching with you guys. My name for WCG is Dersid (same as this forum).

    CRUNCH ON!

    Dersid

    You both should be fine- final tally is Sunday evening ;)

    Chevalr1c, you answered the call to help Fold a few days ago and did so by sacrificing resources that would likely have allowed you to meet the crunching goal w/o issue- we are going to give you credit for those Folding points towards your goal.

    *Important- If there is anyone that is close to the goal but may not reach it in time to qualify for prizes... DO NOT GIVE UP. Drop me a PM to discuss- you will be treated fairly ;)


    Welcome aboard! :toast: You found a great bunch to crunch with... best Team Ever!!! :respect:

    Just wanted to give a special THANKS the The54thvoid for the insane PowerColor LCS 7970 donation!!!!! :respect::respect::respect: That is sooooo very awesome of you man!!!

    That PowerColor LCS 7970 would be such a great upgrade to my liquid cooled i7 3770K system!!! :rockout: :laugh:

    This card, if I win, WILL be put to full use as a team folder until if/when we get WCG GPU units again. If we do not get GPU units for WCG the card will continue to be used for our folding team far beyond the 6 month requirement :)

    I think that indeed the CPU has been had extra work when folding on the GPU. I had a the CEP WU that lasted quite a bit longer, yesterday. I did not see much of a difference in the other units though, although percentage wise they might have been slowed down a bit too.
