It's a pleasure to see what our teams are capable of. These are "all time high" numbers for us and might not have been possible if it wasn't for the incentive HWC has created.

How about we seek out and submit some news articles about folding. Maybe the news posters will put up a few articles to increase folding visibility and awareness.

We could also all create new signature lines soliciting for help in preventing Hardware Canucks form overtaking TPU. As we post around other places in the forum we would increase our team's visibility and the fact that we need some more help.

I'll work on my sig later tonight.

Et tu, hertz? :nutkick: (just had to use that smiley)

We have slipped in the past few days in ppd, but Halloween still looks scary for TPU...

I'm not going into that mob, with all their smiles waving Canadian flags. I think El Fiendo would have better luck. I do know that dhoshaw started folding over there last April at about the same as me, but when it got hot out he dropped off the charts.

Guys remember that this is a team and not everybody is from the US, that's the reason why I found a new one, to much flag waving over there.:toast:

Guys if you see a big breasted woman with milk and cookies give me a shout, because I would like to meet her outside so she can't get to my folding rigs. Crap where is the nut blocker smile.:laugh:

Yeah, a couple of my old 260's have been throwing hissy fits all week, just because I came home in a drunken stupor last weekend and abused them (upped their OC a little) :eek:.

They didnt like it at all and have been bitches all week :mad:.
I think they are jealous of the attention the new cards are getting.

I started folding for HWC when they were trying to break into the top 100. After that, I moved over to PNY to help out their team. In the meantime, I started crunching for TPU and when the call went out for help to fight off HWC, I moved all my gpu's over to TPU.

No, he's like an awesome gun! Its less hired and more awesome. Though the phrase makes no sense, he now sounds like a gun that shoots awesome.
