We're catching up to those Greeks and will soon pass them.
yeah way to go! i know we've been picking it up lately. i think the more we keep this forum active, the more active the macrumors community will be. to keep posting stuff here

yeah that would help. but i think if we keep new threads and posts going in here then people will see it with forum spy and get more people involved. i mean just the little we've been posting here in the last few has gotten more people going. just look at me, you, scifrog, and others who really started stepping it up.
mc68k stepped it up also, but he's been active on here more in the past than we have (not to take anything away from him).

we just need 4JNA to come back!

Thanx for the props!

Now, if I could only get the big units to complete on a regular basis I could hold you off a bit longer

Are they having problems finishing on time or do they quit before they get all the way finished?

I had two of them (on two different machines) just stop, all eight cores using 0% CPU.

Prior to that I'd get one done about 2 days early (with killer points) on each machine.

So I've restarted the client (dumped prefs/reinstalled F@H) on each machine and now have a completion date of ~12/25 (fingers crossed) for both machines.

Congrats to twoodcc for hitting the 3 mil mark!

I've found that starting from scratch sometimes fixes things, so hopefully that will work, good luck!

Sorry you couldn't have stayed in 4th place for longer lyzardking... but at least you can claim you were there! And you are getting more points for the team!

And it looks like mc68k is definitly going to be our first to the big 10 mil!! You are cooking right now with over 600k ppw - as Jim Carey would say (in Mask) "smokin"!

I have now organized my machines with five (linux) in the cold basement, and the 2 win/gpu machines in 4u boxes I got on ebay in the rack with the mac. I spent christmas day, snowbound, rerouting the wiring (and cleaning the "computer room" so everything at least looks much better. I actually got 4 4u cases so I have room to grow, they were $28 each plus $17? each for shipping. 4u is about the same size as a normal tower case so everything fits in nicely. I will post some pics soon.

Doesn't look like I'll be fifth for that long (looking over a shoulder at a quickly approaching twoodcc)

thats great news! it's been a while since we've been able to pass teams with ease. prob due to new enthusiastic users + the bigadv WUs

i'll be at 8 digits, not too bad. but it's really just a #. things might be changing for me for the worse WU-wise temporarily

We can't keep this pace up all the time, I will probably be forced to do the same in the summer.

Hopefully we can pass another team in about 30 days or so, we'll see if we can pick up some steam from new folders.
