Probably worked too much and drank too much (again)
Nope, got another cold. 2nd one this Winter. I can't remember when I have ever had more than one, but, this Winter has been a bit brutally cold. With having to sometimes wait up to 20 minutes for a bus...It got me again. So, yea, I fell asleep around 7, after dinner, and did not wake up again until 5 this morning, for work.
So, last night's, Tuesday's, numbers were GREAT!!
Another Stellar day for TPU Cruncher's!
Amazing work Team!!
17th Tuesday! Gotta Love It!!
Lawn-Boy OPS MAN OM RE
Don't know what it is but, it is for a Lawn Boy.
Need a, Heater mounting spring?
They've got one for 'ya!!
UK Wildlife, #1
UK Wildlife #2
Both of those are in Danger, possibly because of this?
Prolly not, but that wolfie looks a bit HUNGRY!!
Now for some German Wildlife, err, Engineering.
Here the red C is seen in the wild, natural habitat. It was in captivity and appears to now look a little wide eyed and scared. They have been known to quickly adapt, especially after a few laps at the Nuerburgring!
Great night Team!! (See you all again, later tonight, I Hope!)
Hope you get better soon Arjai... sucks to be sick
That UK squirrel has got a weird hairdo
That's how they are over there, little, red and sporting Trump-in-the-wind hair style!
BTW, thanks and yes, this time around has hit me like a truck!
OK, so for tonight's *sneeze* nummer's *Sneeze*. Pardon me. OK, I think that's done...
This Team is doing exactly what I dreamed it could do, over a month ago when I started doing this in Kai's absence. I know that I am not a big cruncher, yet, I have a plan, and cannot cause a sea change by myself or by whining, like I have. But, thanks to the Challenge and the new cruncher's staying on, plus the awesome work we've been doing, adds up to this dream-like atmosphere I inhabit each time I do a post here, like this one!
Super sweet! King's Hawaiian bread sweet! (lord I LOVE that stuff!)
OK, apparently had a problem with my WiFi card. But, Crisis averted because my HotSpot, when plugged into the USB port, acts as 'Local Connection 2' and works like a charm, although a little slower than wireless-ly. Anyways, back to business!
OK, so. It appears our number's tonight are somehow associated with images of poolside resorts from around the World, where it is warm, and any of them would do, at the moment.
OK, 14 pools...
Well and this cutie, I thinks she likes you!
Fine work tonight, TEAM TPU!!
The only thing I can Bitch about is, the French got us tonight, dammit!
Looks as though there are REALLY, only 13 pools, with one repeated. Just noticed. Oh well, 13 is my favorite number!
Now see I don't know if this is something that I can agree with. For a while I've been whining about AMD GPU prices, and it seems they're starting to relax.
Yeah, I know is not the same thing.
Good job with the numbers though, it's great to see you doing it every night.
And great work Team-TPU!
Well, I eff-ed up twice this week but, I am trying to keep it all together, life, cold, TPU and my frickin' work schedule....
Ok, now for another update!
My Cold, an old dreary dear friend of mine, has weakened as the day rolls on. As they often do, which means they are full force in the morn. So, currently, despite a constantly running nose, I am feeling alive. Soon to be followed by wanting to die, about 10 hours from now.
But since my will to live is bolstered by my new responsibility to update these Number's daily, I shall strive to survive!!
On with the BETTER NEWS!!
ANOTHER, Stellar day for TEAM TPU!!
Not to mention, we outpaced the French!!
17 is not a bad number, is it? Not when it is the number we are among the WORLD of 30,000 Teams we are compared to Daily!!
We are 59th on the Member's list (second page of results).
That makes what we do, EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE, no?
In comparison, France is 23rd on that same list!! Their member list is nearly 72% larger! (.71485345255837059115747640337804)(to be a little more exact)
How's that Butter your Croissant?
I know there HAVE to be other Math-letes on this team!
Just for the Romanian in your life...
Flight of the Living Dead (2007)
Too cute, now....
Just wait until it grows up and starts throwing shit around your living room, and by 'shit' I mean it!
This is Mean....
As in it WILL kill 'ya, Boy.
Don't know William Dols, or why he showed up three separate times, in two different searches but, here's the results:
http://www.whitepages.com/name/William-Dols/Virginia, apparently there are a few in Virginia? Woop, Woop?
It's not often that my Home State is Highlighted on the US Map, except for a few things, another Story, entirely.
Impressive night TPU Cruncher's!!
OK, I have to catch a bus soon. So, rather than half ass this post, I shall update it a little later, say 10-ish Central Standard Time.
OK? OK, see you all sooner than later!!
Ok, here we go!!
Bit of a drop off, it was bound to happen. But, let's not make it a habit!!
Unless you all are completely sick of me and want to indirectly cause my demise via tiny aneurysms!!
Our number tonight is brought to us by an old US Senate Bill, it was not acted upon, that would have exempted Elected Officials in Federal Government from paying any Social Security Taxes.
I'd be totally fine with this except, the French passed us!!
18th tonight, not bad at all!!
Got kids? No, then this has got to be a waste of time!!
Need to move a pile of something?
Lego's? When did Lego's get Tough? Ha! I could kick all of their asses!!
Nothing personal to any white BMW owners out there in TPU land. However, if you do have a BMW, of any color, please, PLEASE, do not be a prick to Bicycle rider's, by honking, cutting off or slamming the brakes on in front of them.
Seriously, what good reason, or rather, what rational reason can you come up with for attempting to kill a stranger on a Bicycle?
Alright, I gotta end this. Flashbacks of White BMW's circling the block to cut me off again, cause me to a little unfriendly. I will try to keep it together, long enough to say,
Nice work TEAM TPU!!
Numbers look great, solidly holding strong.
Feel better @Arjai
WCG is performing maintenance.. So, will check a bit later to see if they are done.
Looks like an update to this will not occur until sometime in the morning. Good night!!
Alright, Finally feel OK enough to actually fire this up for a few minutes and post Saturdays numbers.
Another off night but still a good one,
We've managed to out point the French and maintain a spot in the top 20 Crunching Teams in the Universe!!
Also, who is SNURK and Friends? Don't recall seeing them before.
So, SNURK is a anti-Snoring product...
It is also a movie...
Urban Dictionary has a few Definitions...
There is also a website, of nothing...
Also a line of Bedding, with some odd designs and some kid designs...
So, a Snurk is a few things and nothing. Hmm, What the Snurk?
Great Job Team, I am going back to bed!
A slight improvement tonight. I hope we can get back up there tomorrow!
We maintained our position in 18th spot!
And we got the frenchies, again!
I'm sorry Scotty, What?
Do we need more processors?
If Crunching with more power, were only this easy!!
Let's plug 'em in and turn them on!!
Alright Good Job Team!!
Great work team!
"I just can't do it captain; I don't have the powah!!!"
Arjai Are you sure it was white?
I'm sorry buddy , I didn't know it was you. LOL
Good thing there's no geotag on those photos. Those might have disappeared by morning.
They on the East coast and insured.
Nice rebound! Almost to our goal, or my goal for us.
We beat the French, again (Just barely). Meanwhile, those sneaky Canadians stole our spot!!
19th Tonight!! Out of 30,103 teams World Wide!! Awesome? Yes!
Alright, how about 19 pictures of the 19th Century World, along with a few 19th Amendment photos?
Wenceslas Square, Don't know where that is...
Brăila, again, don't know...
Tunis, or, Tunisia
Nice, the one in France.
Somewhere in the UK...
Another, 19th Amendment...
Need a Job, How about a job in a nineteenth century factory? You might even keep all your digits!!
Not sure where this is, either?
This is called, Women Fetching Water, looks Middle Eastern, possibly India?
Here we have some Men's Club opposed to the woman's right to vote...
Not where I wanna live!!
Last one, Looks UK-ish...
Alright, hope you enjoyed this trip through the 19th Century. I also hope you can use this as inspiration for the next time you feel down. It has been worse, Really!
Nice work Team TPU!!
Amazing work TPU, yet again. We keep chuggin' along and it's all good in my book!
I love this one
Oh, my woman sure makes me suffer, alright.
So, we made it good tonight!!
Nice jump up to 16th tonight!! Very nice (not the one in France).
This one is gonna be short, or maybe not. Just missed a bus, so I have some, SOME, time.
AND, The Stupidest thing ANYONE has ever said? Behold,
Great Job TEAM TPU!!
What a pain! I had to try three times to get WCG to load the Stats page! All that just to see that our numbers are DOWN?
WTF? We killed it last night! What happened?
OH, well, I hope we can bring it back up! I know we can!
Also, my own fault, due to the amount of pictures on this page, it takes forever to load. Sorry, to anyone else with a crappy connection.
So, on to the number....
Gratefully, it seems most teams had an off night.
We only lost one spot in the World Standings.
17th tonight!! Good enough? I suppose so.
It's all for Science, Right? Number's are just number's, right? *Takes a DEEp Breath*
It's all good Team! Have a Great Night!!
A couple links, no more pictures on this page!!
Wow, an OutLook problem? How is that possible?
Another problem? It appears HP computer's are not Fool-Proof, either!
Little lower points today, but still holding a strong position! Great work TPU
