But remember, they are so non-committal. Should not be a problem.
Everybody got their rigs ready for the challenge?
I'll be starting about 3 days ahead of time (the 11th likely) with the "borrowed" rig so it'll be spooled up by the 14th.
dont forget the 4 mighty cores
Tweaked ram @cadaveca 's suggested settings make this rig a monster for crunching. Thanks MAN!!! I owe ya big time!
I cant wait till Saturday so i can get this thing started to spoole up and crunching some numbers!
I dislike the french, nothing personal but cumdaquat fuckerz
My monster laptop and I are almost ready. I am still tweaking some voltages on the processor.
I will be setup this weekend and running full tilt for the challange.
I'll start spooling up everything I have on Monday
Should have the challenge thread up and running by tonight or Friday night at the latest....
Sounds like this weekend is the time when we all are going to start pushing it up, that works well.
Any word on BTA doing a news post again for the Challenge?
Yes, I've got an idea: force ゴジラ AKA @manofthem to finally finish the darn game giveaway prize list. I need something to drool on.
Need to get the pieces ready to go live with the challenge thread before I contact him.... have to give him something to link to
@Vinska- the game thread usually launches after the challenge starts so the games list is available then.... up to MoT if he opts to post a preview.
@Norton @Vinska We usually just opened the game thread without a headsup, so that's why i haven't done anything just yet.
So let's ask...
Does everyone want the game list ahead of time so they can take a gander?
Makes no difference to me.
Well of course! Like Vinska said, it will give us all something to drool about LOLOL. Jeez MoT, you should know all of us will do that by now.
WCG Challenge Game List--Some peoples version of internet pron.
Alright gents, I'll get the list up tonight for ya'lls, along with their respective contributors
Suggest we post it here only and not start the game giveaway thread until after the challenge starts...
I was going to send out the list early myself:
Spoiler: Games for the giveaway
A list of awesome titles expertly curated by our own manofthem
so when is it that I supposed to start full crunching?
edit: just read from first page
When- May 14th to May 23rd, 2014
Yes, I agree completely. I'll post what we have so far so peeps can get a peep, but no thread til challenge starts.
But one thing remains: no gaming during the challenge
Correct- best to give your rigs a 2-3day head start to let them spool up.
Could always start them now. You know, just to be sure.
Truly not bothered about prizes but im glad I saw this in time as I can join in ,both rigs, can gpus usefully crunch atm?
No WCG gpu work but the F@H Team could use a little help too when they come over to give us a boost
I'm gonna spool up the servers and go offline for 2 days prior to the start. Should be the "mother of all dumps" when I re-connect on the day the challenge begins.
Big load coming in!!!
