    I see he's getting a bit over 2k per update so we need a good update coming up soon so we can make it. Does the contest run till midnight tonight, or midnight tomorrow night?

    If midnight tomorrow night then we are in for sure :toast:

    I think I(we) will make it because there is 1 day left. But if not; anyways, It has been very nice to see all people here trying to help me to do it, thanks for that. ;) Besides, it has been really impressive as well as funny to see 48 cores/threads in 11 differents hosts crunching for me :) That's a huge amount of processing power :respect:

    I disappeared them.

    PM me your info and I'll lend you my processing power (single Athlon II x2 240 at 3.5GHz, not much but it will help) until the contest is over.

    That was one heck of an effort we all put together during this contest. This is why TPU in my eyes is 2nd to none :respect:

    Ok guys, last day! :rockout:

    I will post an update tomorrow morning (GMT) with everyone's final scores for the contest period and highlighting those of you who have qualified.

    In order to make the winner truly random I've randomized the list of contestants on Random.org so that you all have a number from 1 to 25. The winning number/contestant will be the first random number generated from 1 to 25 by Random.org that is held by a qualifying contestant.

    Come get your numbers:

    Best of luck to everyone :toast:
