Hey Team,

I did this the last 2 years and see no reason for NOT doing it this year too.
The senior management at my company remembered me at bonus time so I'm going to share some.

What's the prize?

- A $100 Paypal gift!
The drawing will be held tomorrow evening- Christmas Day*
*note- may opt to move to Boxing day depending on response
Requirements/terms to qualify for the prize:
* in order for your name to be drawn- you would need to be a member of this forum also (we will draw according to forum name so please post if WCG name is different)
- Be an active WCG-TPU cruncher OR folder
- Joined the TPU crunching or folding Team at least 30 days ago
- Post in this thread*

* You can post as little as "Want" or...
- you can share a tale of giving that shows the spirit of the holidays
- share your crunching/folding plans for the new year
- potluck... post anything you want (within forum guidelines ofc)

- Winners will be chosen randomly using @theonedub's system (below):

To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.
My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.
If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.
Thank you for your contributions this year- you guys are AWESOME!!! :lovetpu:

Have a Wonderful Holiday!!!

I'm in.

I'd like to put together another dedicated cruncher next year. Im not sure what platform but I'm sure it would be older tech. I have a few ideas.

Would also like to try to earn at least another 5m points by the end of next year.

Oh my God @Norton !!!! This is just frigging amazing brother!!!!!

Due to my recent luck winning the duel 6950's I going to opt out of this one. I don't want to be greedy and want to give some of the members that didn't win a chance of winning.

I just want to say that your just amazing man!!!!!!!!!!!!

You deserve a million of these: :respect:

Thanks Captain for another awesome giveaway:toast:

I have no plans for a new crunching pc sadly. We are expecting our second child in February and so funds are tight. But the wife and I truly feel blessed:)
I am not entering the giveaway, just wanted to say thanks and to share a bit.
Merry Christmas crunchers!!!

Over on the Descendant forums there was a kid getting materials to build a rig to program before he goes off to college. He seemed a bit tight in funds like most teenagers so I went ahead and tossed a Xeon 2640 V0 and a Seagate 2TB drive his way to help move the build along. I believe he will be building it tomorrow actually so that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :) I enjoy giving during this time of year especially to those less fortunate than myself and I'm really glad to see others doing the same. Merry Christmas and happy crunching/folding guys.

Suppose I'll jump in... WCG username is hat_tpu

Future plans for WCG? Well, with what I'm capable of now, that's very limited... HW upgrades are few and far between for me. Meanwhile, in fantasy land, I'd love to build a super server featuring dual 18 core xeons, whatever amount of DDR4 2133 would be appropriate for tasks running on that many threads. I'd load it up with a nice 80+ platinum PSU, RAID1 SSD for OS, and a big RAID5 array for storage/media server purposes. It would feature a bluray drive (or many) so I can rip bluray discs into the media server, and with that monstrous processing power do some serious high level encoding in no time. Of course, WCG would be running on it... not sure what else I could do with processing power like that. In that event I'd be torn between Broadwell-E and a 6700k for my gaming rig. With that kind of heavy processing power on that server I wouldn't be concerned about multithreaded performance on my gaming rig, but it would still be handy for some games, and of course, WCG as well. Everything I currently have would likely be donated to the team in some sort of random giveaway.

I dont know if I am qualified to join but if I am, of course I want :)

Been busy for the last couple of months hence couldnt really contribute to team

Next year, we are expecting our first baby :) about end of Jan

I will be more busy by that time than now hence I couldnt really promise to crunch next year. Or maybe, just maybe, I will dedicate (full) for crunching while taking care of baby while I am on vacation.

Oh Merry christmas team.

Thanks Bill! Count me in for this one :)

If I win, I will use this to buy a small upgrade for my wife's laptop. It's a decent laptop even though it's a few years old (Core i5 w/4 or 6GB, I can't remember), but I was thinking I could get her a SSD. For what she has on it, a 120GB drive would be too small, and I'd think she could fill a 240GB drive soon. A 480/512GB drive would suit her needs best, but is a little more than I should spend after all the other holiday shopping. If I won this, I would easily after the balance for a nice drive.

:toast: to everyone on the team!
