Heeeeeeey! I had this (albeit from a steeper angle) as my dual-monitor wallpaper some time ago
Awesome! I have several shots of this that I love to use as a wallpaper
All around, this was a pretty good day for the Team--great job fellow crunchers!
That is just beautiful. Where do you find all these pictures ion? I used to collect pretty pictures like this till it filled up my hdd.
Another thoroughly excellent job guys, way to go!
Phantom Ship Island, Crater Lake, Oregon:
Not our greatest day, but also certainly not our worst one! Let's see if we can do better in the coming day!
Milford Sound, New Zealand:
Sorry about the missed days, the microwave blew my circuit breaker, thus taking out my computers and internet connection
Today's numbers unfortunately aren't spectacular, but I certainly believe that we can manage more with some careful planning
Mt. Elbrus, Russia:
An improvement from yesterday--movement in the right direction!
Maboedalen Valley, Norway:
This valley looks gorgeous!
EDIT: didn't realize I was double posting so I moved the other post here.
The highest scoring one I've recorded over one week.
Solid job again gentlemen!
(Flickr's disabling of image downloading was no match for me )
Good job guys!
The Giant's Causeway, Ireland:
Sorry about no numbers last night; it seems as though I got caught up with too much circuits homework
An excellent day tonight--let's see if we can repeat this and push ahead over the coming day!
Good work tonight! These 2.7m+ days are becoming very nice to see on a regular basis!
Great job Team!!!
I believe there are 3 million pt days in our future
I hope so! Once it gets a bit cooler here in NC, I think I'm going to set up another FX8320 (or perhaps a 3rd gen FX system)
An entirely solid day today--not spectacular, but entirely respectable
Hoher Dachstein, Oesterreich:
Very excellent job tonight--well done all!
Stone Forest, Yunan, China:
Nice jump from yesterday
I really wish that we were not in 12th place. Anything but 12th!
Sorry but, I have an unhealthy relationship with 12. It is quite irrational, but real.
Then we must change that
I had some weird problems with my dorm room rig, which seems okay now. I will get crunching on it again within a few days (maybe some part-time crunching on Asgard-AMD since I will be at my old folks place for a little longer than uasual).
Don't worry. According to Free-DC, assuming our scores stay more or less the same, we will overtake the MakeCuresHappen team in ~120 days and will become #10. ~140 more days later (or ~260 from now) we will be overtaken by Rochester Institute of Technology and will be #11 again. So no being #12 in any near future.
BUT if we get a some GPU work again, we would boost ourselves very well into the top ten (just like we unbelievably boosted our position the last time there was GPU work). That would make hitting #12, even in fairly far future, not likely.
(a bit of history: Team TPU was THE team which fully took advantage of the then available GPU work and had unbelievably high scores - more than ten times the current score; over 4 million points daily. There was no chance of pie without getting at the very least 100k points, kekeke...
Meanwhile, other teams had a much more modest increase in points, which showed that most crunchers still stuck to using mostly or only CPUs. Thus, in case of new GPU work, if we get even half the [our PPD increase / other team PPD increase] ratio of the previous time, we are going to climb some Serious Ranks™.)
Great job tonight guys--let's keep up the good work!
Yucatan Cave Lake, Mexico:
Yea! Not twelfth!
