Next race we do by time and whom ever is ranked higher opposed to rank, it will make the ending simpler.

I just finished a 353pt WU so that'll put me over the line, there might be another one floating around somewhere (hopefully!) but it sounds like we're going to be within an update of each other, if not the same one. But we'll see how it shakes out

As of 12am, neither of us made it. At 3am I am ranked 995 with 117,282 points on EOC (118,304 on F@H) and you are ranked 999 with 116,695 points EOC (117,048 F@H)

The race lasted 17 days, and ended with us both breaking the 1000 point on the SAME UPDATE! What are the odds of that, especially with all the "events" that occurred (new clients, lost WUs, OC crashes, you seem to have no chance, then I seem to have no chance...)

Good race, now its time to actually start using my PC again for games, internet and photoshop. I'm still folding, but not QUITE as aggressively (prolly lose 400-600ppd).

haha, this is getting addicting, I just woke up in the middle of the night to check this. That is pretty funny that over 17 days that we would end at the same update, especially with as much back and forth as we had.

outstanding race. Now I can use my computer like a computer again... in the morning

No thanks, I *think* I could win, but I don't want to be afraid to use my PC in fear of losing ppd. Maybe a race is in our future (possibly to green, but when we are closer) but I'm looking forward to not worrying about crashes and playing some games again...

As for the WU, it was too close to tell. We made it at the same time, with a small difference in points, I think you can keep it, thank you though.

Yeah I was just kidding, between my CPU fan, case fans and GPU fan my bedroom is pretty loud, my lady friend doesn't care for it very much. Yeah, maybe when we get closer, I'll be down for a while, I'll keep my GPU going but my CPU will be tired up in other projects for a bit.

At this rate, it'll take me 48 days to get into the top 500.

I need a new GPU...

I think I am at 53, I need a new mobo that'll let me tinker, this Q9300 could easily go from 2.5 to 3.0GHz, I'd be quite content with that. A 2nd PCI-e would be nice too

I'm prolly moving soon too, so folding may be a lil too expensive for a while, I'll try to keep it going, but idk how thatll go.

Its prolly for the better that you dont wanna race... I just seemed to get a stable OC at 3.1 (I was running 2.83 while racing). I'm messing with voltage a little more now too, so it'll prolly go higher.

I just started for you guys.
Quick gets the i7, red gets the 4850. 3 days!

If your ppd dont get ~1500 rise, tell me, I probablly entered the wrong name or something.

Why don't you run the 4850 24/7? I was curious on that when you mentioned it last time. I would find turning it on and off would be harder then letting it run. My 4850 runs 24/7 for weeks just fine with 2 VMPlayers going.

The only reason it doesnt run 24/7 is so that includes gaming, and also, when my F@H is coming close to sending in, and I want to play some multiplayer game, I just shut it off, as it screws over my ping. Another thing is, other people use my computer, so the log out of my account, shutting down the F@H until I can start it up again.

R3D, I dont really know whats happening, so if you can figure it out, just tell me. Quick, I really am folding for you; I checked with Sanford, I have no idea how your points are going down though.
