    Or you could go with people whose RAC has been less than 50k/31 for at least the last 2-3 months - sump'in like that.

    Yeah, there are a lot of people ranked 75-100 that I would say are still new, but the point of the contest it to bring in new members.

    I wonder how a contest for the Top 50-75 would work :D?

    I'm going to go for it. Seems I have quite a few people that want to help me. Thanks to all of you, if I somehow manage to win this, I'll either buy a case for it and make it a cruncher, or do one heck of a Quad core overhaul on my current cruncher. :D

    My WGC Username is Radical_Edward, consider this me officially entering into this contest. :D

    Just making sure here... "BOINC points" is the points on our WCG grid divided by 7, correct?

    Rule Amendment

    As the TPU WCG team is the friendliest around, the rules have been modified so that those dedicated crunchers who have been here a little longer also get a chance!

    The requirement now is that: Eligible winning member cannot hold a Top 75 position on the TechPowerUp! WCG Team prior to contest.

    As such:

    You're all back in the game! Make sure to give Chicken Patty your love for this :rockout:


    You guys are on too!

    Best of luck to everyone! :toast:

    I saw that and I was wondering if maybe you had seen that last night or something. :laugh: But it's all good, numbers should start to rise as the contest starts.
