Fellas, this ain't good.
Strange, I thought more people were crunching because of the contest....
Oh wait! It's Saturday! Weekends normally suck, don't they?
yeah they do, but not this much
I keep my eyes on certain teams as far as daily output, theirs seem to be about the same.
my numbers are going to be shit for awhile i can't take the heat and the electric bill has been $450 a month... Will join you again soon.
wipes sweat away
I thought this contest would make our numbers really jump?
Yup, not quite going to plan in that respect. Let's hope that by monday's update we'll get a better picture of where we're at. New computers take a few days before validation is complete and numbers look normal. If any of you guys use social networking may be good idea to promote the contest. Gonna see what I can do.
Dammit, not even mine comes that high being in Miami. Are you shutting down completely or what?
I would like to rephrase my earlier post where I said I have been keeping my eye on certain teams to compare if it was just the numbers being low in general or us. We have to keep into consideration that TPU seems to have a lot of younger members who don't have full control over the bills and what can be done in respect to them. Not only that, but not all teams will have the same effect when summer comes around. We seem to keep the percentage of users returning work about the same, yet the users are returning less work.
for example, this is just off the top of my head:
hammer on - five i7's crunching, he has only one now I believe
ION - had a few rigs going, only a single rig now and not a very powerful one at that
Right there those two members could be getting us into the 1.75 - 1.8 million range considering it's summer time. Really what we need to work on is trying to recruit some new members. Like I posted over in the WCG team thread, I have been extremely busy lately and will continue to be for a bit more so if you guys can help in anyway or have any ideas on how to get more members or increase our output, shoot me a PM and we'll discuss it.
I think we've done great even if our numbers are a bit lower than expected. Summer will be over soon, we'll see what's up then.
Mine was hitting $450+ with all the crunching and folding I was doing as well. I just can't afford it right now.
...and it's understandable. The heat does take a huge toll on people. Keep in mind, we are among the top 25 teams in WCG, and about the top 20 in output everyday. We don't have many big guns here like other teams we are running up against now, it's gonna get to the point where this is as much as we will do. When summer leaves we'll see what we can really do. I plan on expanding more when I have a chance and currently will be adding another rig next week. Any bit helps.
Hey guys and gals I don't think we are doing that bad... I think everyone is doing kickass! Look at where we were last year compared to now. As long as we keep kicking ass people will want to join our team to be apart of the kickassness!
In no moment I said that
Naw bro, but it hurts to see the #'s go down.
That's why you kickass at being the captain!
It hurts even more getting rid of my i7 but it's what I need to do. Need to get some cash so I can get going with my stuff, doing two or three things at once I'll never get no where.
Forgot yesterdays, god you see guys, I ain't lying when I saw i've been busy as hell!

Stats seem to be down for a few teams, so this is def. not bad considering the stats are bugged on the weekend.
