Holy Shit!!!! I cracked the top 20 with just a i7 860 and i7 3930k. You guys are getting slack. That's 4-6 positions higher than I should be at. WTF team?
I have to check my rigs, my ppd sucks lately
We should be back to full strength by later next month
yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy stil on some pie days! well, competition its pretty hard here, my humble little farm its working harder to get me some points, congrats all people here! epic effort, epic results! keep the stones rocking team!
@infrared looks like we have a little battle going for that #3 slice of Pie.... bring it bud!
@Norton haha looks like it, you're on!
Looks like things are heating up across the pond again.
Uh, I think we have a drunk BumbleBee (your numbers are off Bee, check t_ski's score and you'll understand what I mean. He's not the only mistake either)
What do you think t_ski's score is supposed to be?
Drats, I see what I did. Forgot to sort by yesterday first.
t_ski's numbers are right, just for some reason they're out of order I checked free-dc and it showed it in the same order when ordered by the yesterday column, then refreshed the page and it got it right.. I think the stats page is drunk!
You're too kind. I was trying to do it PDQ and missed how messed up it was.
The reason it was this late and out of order was that FDC didn't update last night, so I had to use the yesterday numbers today.
Well don't do it again or you're fired!
That pic is gold! Story of my life!
I'd rather get fired than have my pay cut.
@infrared nice job grabbing the #3 spot!
Might have to bring in some of the reserve fleet and get it back!
Noooo! All I've got in reserve is the old qx9650, aside from being junk (4k ppd) it's also got no psu, hdd, case... and uses a horrendous amount of power for what it achieves lol. I'll fight you off for as long as I can though!
Oh, I'm blaming you for (nearly) killing my phone too... When you fired me up for this 3rd place battle I got an extra laptop and my sony Z2 going.. the phone was getting hot which means it throttles the charge power and it ends up consuming more than it's charging so eventually goes flat. I came up with the ingenious idea of putting some cold water in a bag with the end tied, in an aluminium tray, with phone sat on its cold waterbed. It was working stunningly well, even keeping it cool enough to hit it's fastest bin on the cpu. I turn my back for a couple of hours and evidently there must have been a small leak I hadn't noticed. All the water leaked out of the bag into the tray until the phone was totally submerged!! I came back and was horrified. I drained all the water out of my phone (was quite a lot!), and sat with a heat gun on it for a couple of hours with no success. Since I was pretty sure the phone was dead and nothing mattered at this point I suckered off the back, got the battery and motherboard out, pried all the metal cans off of the mainboard and stuck all but the battery in the oven at 80c for a couple of hours (scrubbed off a tiny bit of corrosion on the pcb too). My old man was looking over my shoulder as I'm plugging all the bits together, and i'm just telling him I'm almost totally sure it's fked when I feel it buzz and come to life! Moral of the story - be a hero like me
tl;dr version - I saved phone, better option is don't let your phone become submerged!
Summer's not over yet so any extra rigs will only be for short runs or testing... maybe a sporadic 8-18k ppd boost here and there
lol, i'll blame anyone but myself for doing something daft
Nice, that's a fair amount of reserve power We need an option in wcg/f@h that can throttle it based on room temp/target temp. Then you could save on heating costs and justify more crunching power! - my logic hehe
Ha! My i5-6500T, using 38 watts, got me back on the top 40 list.
And Capt. @Norton has his battleship gray 3rd spot back.
my little farm is on fire, its been a while since i could hit some sp0ts @Top 20 crunchers chart!
Congrats all stoners for the great job, also interesting battle between for some sp0ts on the chart!
