Well, you usually seem to get up soonish, and youll have an unpleasant surprise when you do. I'm up by 760 points.

It seems that we are making the same points, but my WUs take longer, so you are usually ahead, but when mine go in, I pass you. Gives you a big upper hand in crossing the finish line first.

Well would you look at that, good morning to you too! That was one hell of a valiant leap you just did. Not going to lie, kind of started to think I had this one in the bag, now I'm trying to see where I can get a few more PPD without very many days left to find them!


We're in the hope stretch now, first person to get onto the next page gets a shiny new badge

The way its goin now, I'm making more than you, gaining, but slowly. Last time I passed you, It was more than the time before. The only problem is, you get faster finishing WUs than I do. I hope my stuff finishes at the right time, I have EVERYTHING runnin all out, OCd, and actualy thought about buying a new GPU. Too late for that now...

my GPU has been doing a lot of 353 WU the last few days, no 1888 ones. My PPD way way down right now for whatever reason, only 4200, about 1k below what I was just doing for days. Bad time for that to happen.

Trying to get FAH to work on a VM with Ubuntu for SMP, so far it isn't working. Doesn't help I have never used Linux or even command prompt since I was 7 and using MS-DOS. I'm a GUI kinda guy I guess

Just have to fend you off for another day and a half!

well now, this just won't do, won't do at all. You're starting to make it a habit of hopping in front of me in the morning. Yes, this definitely will not do at all, just starting to figure this Linux folding thing out.

T's will be crossed, efforts will be doubled, clocks will be pushed, cycle stealing anti-virus software will be closed, the Linux folding beast will be unleashed (once this CPU WU finished) and R3D88 will finally be vanquished! :twisted:

How will your clocks be pushed, i thought your shaders were maxxed and your cpu cant OC?

At 3PM I'm up by 1099 points. EOCs future predictions show us finishing in 1.5 days. I'm scared because I have 3 clients (almost half of them) that are going to finish in approx 1.5 days, so they may come in just a little to late...

Up by 1130 at 6pm, but 9 may be a different story because your FAH stats are approx 200 points above mine...

EOC finally has you on my threats list, it says it will take you two weeks to pass me though. So instead of dragging this out even longer how about you just fold for me for 2 days and we'll end it a little early. I mean, 2 weeks, come on, I'll be there in 1.5 days.

My CPU makes quick work of this 1760pt WU, that kicks up my PPD to 2200, then the 787 WU on the GPU bump that up too. I'll have to make sure I keep getting those for the next day and a half

There is still a chance I could beat you to the 1000 mark. Even if I don't, there is a really good chance that I'll be at that 1000 mark within 2-3 updates, thus calling it a draw.

Just a few updates ago it said you would take weeks to catch me, yet your ahead now. If its less than a couple thousand points, neither of us realy has a lead.

well, lets hope this cycle of yours continues and today will be a 2800pt kind of day. Nice work on your 2nd highest day yesterday, I was surprised I am still ahead, although in 2 days you are up that 4k gap I had build up.

My laptop stopped working/turned off last night so it is out, it couldn't finish a WU in time so I'm not going to bother.

PS I had a dream last night that I checked EOC this morning and you were in the top 1000, if I have a really good day I could get there by the midnight update, we'll probably be there by the 3am one though.

Thanks Tedster. I'm trying our different distros for my computer, I think I am going to go with Mint, I'll get that going here soon. Does Linux SMP usually slow the computer a lot? I had it running on a VM and it made my computer almost unusable it was so slow, adjusting priority and # of cores didn't help.

I got the passkey, waiting until after the race to put it in since I would have to stop the client to make changes, and it being a photo finish not wanted to stop that thing for anything. What are the bonus points they talk about on the website?

:cry: You need to complete 10 WU's with the passkey in a Linux SMP client to get the bonus.

I'll be done by 12 I think. I'm not home, so I can't see my fahmon, but I've got 1920 points that'll be done around 10. That plus my 115,362 and I'm well into the top 1000!

No, I got a lot of clients, and didn't want to have to put in a passkey every time I changed/ added a new one. Now all I have is a 6 digit name, and a 5 digit team number, which I know off the top of my head, I know I couldn't memorize my passkey.

Last WU sent successfully at 10:28.

As long as it shows up, I'm there.

You have 116,342 on the official site now, that's about 200 below what you need to be in the top 1000, Its very likely you'll make it, but if you dont get those 200 points in 7.5 hours (the 2 updates after mine) you will have to switch your name to mine.

Just watch EOC closely, I'll be looking after work (3am update).
