Ok, so bit-tech is gaining like 5-6M a day and Hardware No. about 10-11M. We make around 9-10M (been doing a little better lately). So, all we have to do is double our production. Everybody, whatever you're Folding on right now, just go get the exact same thing again. Willis? I hope there are no liens on your property, cause you're probably looking at a reverse mortgage. All right, everybody got it?

Is there a portable version of the client? I'll put it on a bunch of cheap USB sticks and just run around plugging them in to unsecured XP boxes and letting Autoplay work some magic.

Ok, if you found that last idea to be distasteful, stop reading now.
We have to DDOS bit-tech's big man. :twisted:

(Oh, for crying out loud, you know I'm just BSing)

We are actually outproducing TSC! Russia as of the midnight update, but only by 40k so they still don't show as a conquest (and us as their threat) and if you look at overclockers.com, they are only up by about 4.5m ppd.

If we can get about 5M, overtake those two and fend off bit-tech for a while. Sure Hardware.no will pass us, but we will still be up one place 8)

So you don't need to double your production, but you do need to get 1.5x! :lol: :lol:

oh, and looking at all the history graphs, we are growing faster than TSC! Russia, so we actually should end up catching them one day!

plus, idk about other wal-marts, but around here the $250-$500 pcs they have would prolly only get about 500ppd anyways, might have better luck at best buy.

I can afford to pick up additional hardware, but my money is already spoken for in other areas, so nothing new for me unless I get a good jump in points, don't lose much money after selling the 'old' hardware, and less power draw (looking at you Nvidia for new cards).

Not sure if it still works, but I had heard that if you download the WU and save it on your flash drive, you can fold without needing internet access

But then, I'd make so many trips to Walmart people would start thinking I work there. Of course, I probably do know more about computers then all of those people put together lol

Yeah, you'd have to keep downloading WUs and swapping drives. Sometimes I go to Best-Buy in a blue polo and khaki's, brown loafers. Just stand around helpfully, usually around the routers.

I've been watching TSC!Russia and they are plus or minus 50k ppd with us almost the whole time. We just need one more mid-range GPU guys. Anyone? Anyone?

Hey g.m., didn't a few of their guys post over here for a while?

I seem to recall some neat stories about life in Russia, etc.

I remember them as being pretty funny guys.

Then one day...... *POOF*

No more Russians.

That was maybe six to eight years ago....

My time here doesn't go that far back, but I think I remember reading posts about Gordon contacting them, probably around CC time.

Ferg1ty was a regular here up until about a year ago, and I know he split some of his production over at TSC!Russia.

My new GPU (and 4770K on smp:6) is getting me an extra ~200K PPD and i'll keep it up as long as I can, but I'm installing window air conditioners on an almost daily basis right now, so unfortunately it will be short lived...for now. On the other side of summer though, I'll be space heater folding for sure!!
