I meant "thanks a lot for the pic of that awesome castle", but whatever floats Your boat
Ahh, well, thank you
Europe has so many amazing castles...shame we don't have any here
What about Hearst Castle
Scottys castle in Death Valley
Vinska's new fleet of systems are helping us to reach incredible new heights!
Leysin, French Alps:
Orkhorn Valley, Mongolia:
Leysin, SWISS Alps. Just sayin.
'dat Mongolian mountain!
DO WANT! お持ち帰り〜！
Well, you're welcome to move there--not sure how many people speak Lithuanian there, though
A truly insane job tonight--a full 60% higher PPD than we are usually capable of and more than 50m beautiful PPD
Briksdalsbreen Glacier, Norway:
Staubbach Falls, Switzerland:
Great job, team! A beautiful way to end the challenge. I bet tomorrow will not be so pretty, but after all our hard work, I think we earned a little shut-eye
A big round of applause too to the members who joined up for the challenge and help rock the boat!
Unfortunately things are down quite a bit now that the competition is over, but we'll have to see where things end up over the coming few weeks. Hopefully with the cooler weather, we'll be able to sustain a higher PPD than over the summer. Remember guys, there's no better way to heat your house than with computers!
Melissani Cave, Greece:
The Himalayan Mountains:
Outside of Oslo, Norway:
It's all good. Many of us will be back up and running in not too long.
Thanks for the pics Kai, beautiful!
Actually, there's some truth to this. Puget Systems did an interesting comparison between a computer and a space heater. If you're going to rack up a power bill to keep your house warm, you might as well get a free gaming session out of it.
I can vouch for this actually working well- I had an issue with my heat at home this past week and started one my GTX 580's folding for a few days to take the chill out of the house
Actually worked out pretty well until I could get the thermostat replaced a couple of days later
Guys, I'm sorry about no Daily Numbers update last night--I completely spaced and forgot to post one. I hope I'm forgiven!
And Tonight's Numbers:
Unfortunately, and perhaps unsurprisingly, I suppose, our PPD is dropping back down to much more "reasonable" numbers. Still, it was awesome while it lasted!
Montana de Oro State Park, California:
To prevent that my part of the central heating freezes, and because the power draw of Darwin is less than 150w, I have to keep the radiator on a little when it freezes outside. The principle still stands though.
Not sure where Ion has been but let's catch this thread up

Another truly excellent day for our WCG Team! Winter weather is clearly helping everyone crunch like never before and pushing us to new heights!

Well, it looks more like 11 days, actually
Let's see if we can do it in 10!
Sorry about the delay, but we managed to get some pretty awesome numbers yesterday!
