    Cheers El, just got to get my two 260's folding again on that rig now.

    Didn't want to chance anything for the first WU, but all seems stable now.

    Speaking of stability, or perhaps a lack thereof, but I lost a bigadv at 76% due to Windows Update restart. For whatever reason the saved state, the back-ups and everything in general just failed. After much frustrated yelling, I calmed down some. :ohwell:

    No additional milestones happened today after the initial update that brought us Dies and Oily's milestones so with that I say:

    I'm bummed. My GTX285 crapped out. :(
    I'll be stopping folding until I get an RMA from BFG.
    Anyone know how long it takes for them to RMA?

    Seems like a lot of us are having difficulties lately: losing work, breaking cards - in my case - have some idiot turn off the power to my apartment. Can't last forever.

    On the bright side, I have all 7 of my Nvidia GPU cards folding smoothly. Kicking out 28 to 30K PPD. I'm going to retire my 4850 from folding, at least for a while. It's not worth the electricity, plus I play games on it while not watching Lindsey Vonn and Shawn White rip up the great white north. To say nothing about showing the Canucks how to play hockey. Oh yeah, in your face!

    I had 2 rigs down today. One of them is my i7, which will not post now. I will be moving the GTX260's to my HTPC and work on running bigadv's with CPU only folding on this rig(ah, finally a purpose for my Asus X300LE:laugh:)

    My i7 rigs were all running GTX260's before I set them up to run bigadv's but all of those GTX260's had a bad habit of causing me problems so I swapped them out for 9800GTX+ cards. So far those :respect:9800GTX+ cards have been folding and have not disappointed me.:) Buck, maybe a GT240 card would be a good choice for your i7 rig.

    I will keep my fingers crossed that mine runs OK, I just added 2x 260GTX from another rig to my i7.

    Been running for over 24h so far without any problems.

    I keep talking myself out of buying 3 more GTX 260s, as I still wouldn't have all the parts needed to build a system for them. Though I must say these EVGA cards I own are easily the best I've owned, especially the GTX 260s. They seem to run fine with my i7, though I can't be certain what's causing my bigadv issues.


    Pie!

    Two milestones tonight starting with BoT, a new member who seems to have had some history with several teams. BoT earned his first milestone with TPU, and with that I'd like to say welcome to the team. The second milestone was achieved by Bruce88 as he crossed over the 250k mark, 1/4 of the way to F@H Millionaire status. Good luck with the next 750k, you'll be there in no time man. :toast:

    Congrats to both Bot and Bruce88.

    :banghead: I just had my P6T bigadv machine crash.:eek: At first I thought the Windows Update had run against my permission. After signing back on I saw that had not occurred so I don't know what cause the crash.

    I started the VM, Linux and the bigadv WU and to my amazement it started from a 42% checkpoint. I did nothing special when I started using v1.1 so this is truly good news. Of course I will now have to hold my breath until this WU completes.:p

    This one of the things that "scares" me about stepping into -bigadv land. It's one thing to loose 300-1000 or so points. Quite another thing to loose 40,000 or so points.

    Make no mistake though, it's only $$$ that's keeping away from i7 madness. I'll jump on the bandwagon as soon as I'm able.

    I figure I'll try notfred's solution again this next work unit completion. I hadn't used it in the past as there was an issue with the Stanford servers and distributing the folding cores. I should be able to get a good idea of what that program is like and I can get some comparatives to post up.

    By the way, Mr. Habits, I do believe some girls got romped tonight.

    Things start rolling tonight as NastyHabits drops his second million making him an official F@H multimillionaire, and also earning him an upgraded badge. Meanwhile, as Msgclb crosses 12 million tonight, he stretches the gap between himself and a couple of other guys trying to chase him and third place down. Congrats to our milestone achievers.

    I just did the math. I'd have to double my output to beat you to 3,000,000.

    Thanks. I'm doing my GPU folding best.

    And yes, El Fiendo, the US woman's hockey team got taken to school. Though prior to that game, the US point total vs all opponents was 40 to 2 and the Canadian total was 46 to 2. It was truly a two team tournament. As for the men, if the US and Canada meet for the Gold, there will be blood on the ice. Two losses to the American men's team? -- I simply can't imagine that going down.

    Yep, those girls could all likely kick my ass 10x over on the ice. I'm sure some of them have more rugged 'tournament beards' than I can grow in a week, too.

    I think it was a bit of a wake-up call, because Canada was performing nowhere near where they should have been. However, it would seem that they've smartened up a bit if vs. Russia was any indicator.

    Make that two hockey golds, Mr. Habits. With the ending of the weekend comes a surge of an update that will encompass Friday, Saturday and Sunday with all the respective pie earned. You won't be able to repel pie of this magnitude!

    Btw guys, have a look here. If I didn't know any better, I'd say their PPD is becoming a bit more manageable for us. With Buck coming back online we should at least be averaging 900k. All wee need is a bit more of a push.

    Pie!

    With a list as mighty and impressive as this, you would expect the post to continue forth with a great number of milestones. However, surprisingly only 1 milestone was triggered in that whole boat load of progress. Fitseries3 has earned himself his 500,000th TPU folding point, likely letting his current machinations bench out a few work units. Congrats on 500k, though if you can double that count you'll score an upgraded millionaire badge on your posts, and pull up a chair in the F@H Millionaire club. So far its just a room with a single dangling lightbulb and a bunch of chairs, but we're working on renovations.
