I'm honoured that people are waiting on me for things like this but seriously there's no need :) If anyone here can arrange and donate something without me, then please do :) Life sometimes gets in the way at the best of times and with being in different time zones and so on, things aren't really so easy to sort out there and then :)

If we can introduce more crunchers to our team with word of mouth and giveaway's like this, I think any person signing up to a team like ours wouldn't find a better home :)

I sadly never 'met' the gent that @stinger608 posted up, but I'm sure heck like most people on here would have had a great time getting to know and crunching with someone like him :)

Thank you @thebluebumblebee :) I think some might call it being stupid or get a grip or arrange your time better but sometimes things no matter how hard you try always have a tendency to go sideways :laugh: I can remember countless times of having to put Sophia down at 2am then trying to update threads... Never a good idea but the aftermath is damn funny :D :D

Still, anyone willing to put anything up for donation, link it to this thread, get a list of names, lets give it a set amount of time for the competition to be open and lets get to it!! :) If I can help, I will do my best to help!! :) I think the last giveaway we did was the servers I was able to give to @blobster21 :) Was a little while ago, back in March 2020.... Here 'tis!! :D

I'm kind of bumping this thread, but also would like followers to take a look at this thread that @neatfeatguy posted yesterday:


This is for a really great cause and I thought it might get more attention posting the TPU link here in this thread.

Oh yeah, his passing was a massive loss to us all.

Always so kind and helpful to everyone, including me. I had many private conversations with him where he'd freely give me very good advice regarding TPU and life in general.

He also asked me once to help write his CV as he was applying for a job which I gladly did. Then he got sick with cancer and never made it. It was horrible to watch him fade away like that. RIP Kreij. :(

Feels so sad that here was a great guy who has died and I just don't remember him, probably just posted on different threads than me. Even being an atheist, may my prayers be with him.

I hope that we all stay safe and alive, I would miss ya guys if we would have a similar loss.

The event I was hoping to build a computer for to donate fell through, so if anyone wants to spearhead a PC giveaway here I could offer up the RTX 3050 as a GPU for the build.

What about the latest cod on Steam or Battle.net? I did something similar over a decade ago and it was quite popular.

I've got some Unreal codes here for the collection, I'd love to do something with them. That said, I'd love to do a few GPUs to give away.... Some 2080's or 3060/3070 sort of cards... For some of the members that are always crunching/folding etc. that don't seem to gain more than a few thousand points or even ten thousand points, I wonder if it would be worth it...

I mean a complete 'random' give away would also be as good :)

What's anyone's thoughts??

I think it's an amazing idea man!!!!!!

Of course, you would have to pick the members that are eligible to win the video cards.

And, shipping across the pond would be a bit of an issue.

Maybe we could get some assistance with shipping if someone across the pond wins?

I was hoping to (funds allowing at this point) to try and do a UK and US giveaway, I don't know if someone over there would like to 'hold' the cash and then we could all agree on a card or something to 'giveaway' and then go from there? I did see a fairly good CPU + RAM + motherboard combo over here, so I might message the guy and see what sort of price he'd be after with it all but mentioning its for a giveaway I would like to think it'll be cheaper! lol

Anyone's thoughts??

@phill I have 2 systems that I'm debating on which to donate (or might donate both). Going to check them to make sure they are operational and post some pics here.

That is outstanding mate thank you :) I think what I'd like to do is offer a chance for people donating the PC/s/hardware/s etc. to have some cash from the members to say thank you and to help out with the contributions, I think its only fair.

I'll check in with the mods as well just to make sure this is alright, as I'd like to give back to our community but I'd like to make sure we aren't breaking any rules for W1zzard :) It's a great site and I hope by doing these things that people are happy, appreciative and grateful should they win or even be considered. I don't know of many places doing this, so I know TPU is a special place to be for such things.

If anyone has anything they wish to donate etc. then please post it up in the thread. I'm more than happy to send monies over to help buy any needed hardware for anyone who's not quite got a complete PC or something along the lines... I don't wish to have the micky taken out of ANYONE who is also considering and wishing to be involved with this either.

Does anyone have any objections or points or anything they'd like to raise for us doing this?? I'll do an email from WCG as well, so all of our members get it. Is everyone OK with that?? :)

The title says 7 years. It's been 8 now. No disrespect intended, just pointing it out. :toast:
I still remember when he used to give me great advice in pm. There was also that time he asked me to proofread his resume for a job he was going for. And now he's gone along with other people I knew, mostly due to cancer. Life is cruel like that. :(
