Not really, but it still might be cool.

Been talking with SwingOp3 tonight and brought up having a race. Well after talking it him about it we decided to have one.

For 60 days we will race. Winner will be he who has the most points.

I am starting at 1,876,739. He is starting at 2,125,896.

We are both maxed out at the moment but I am getting the 285 soon so it will be a close race I think, might even come down to the wire, kinda even hoping for that lol.

Officially Accepted!

I'll have to make sure all machines are at peak efficiency and figure out a way to slow the delivery of the Mighty GTX285!!

Take your time Dabart, take your time...



It's ON!!!!!!

1 Week Update:

Joecobra - 165,248 points

SwingOp3 - 273,411 points

SwingOp3 has a lead of 108,163 points :D

Well, I'm in the lead for now but I'm sure the GTX285 is either on the way or delivered and/or installed and my lead will slowly but surely be eaten away.

Will I be able to hold off Joecobra or not. I have to say I'm not feeling too confident about winning my first gauntlet :(

I'll be watching for his points increase and consider my options :twisted:

I wasn't at all confident when I faced grim_tuesday in our race to the top 400 and I totally smoked him. Anyways good luck mate.

Well......I had to reinstall windows last night. Long story short I lost a day of folding and a Big WU at 85%......but that 285 should be here in 2 days, meaning I need to get some 68Ω resistors.

Well, it appears that running 2 GPU clients and smp 8 do not work so well, so I am going to drop down to smp 7 I think.......

AKA: Watch out swing, HFM says 43k PPD

The thought of you putting that GTX285 online got me kinda scared so I tried putting my 5870 online. What I gained with the gpu I lost, and then some, on the Big WU.

So I am truly maxed out..........unless.........I.........buy.....something......hmmmm :twisted:

I noticed production seemed a little down. I thought it was the calm before the storm :wink:

On the flip side, the power went out here about an hour ago with my Big WU at 20%. I thought I lost it but she's back up running where it left off :shock:

This might be closer than I thought. Although, I will be out of town for 8 days in the middle of March so it could all come tumbling down while I'm gone. Not sure the wife will be able to get things going in my absence. I'll have to start training her now.

That happened to me over the summer. Left town to visit relatives in canada. My i7 restarted on me, booting into linux without a gui, and no way to fix it. I was down to my most reliable folder: a pentium d 840 and an 8800 gt

So it appears that this was a bad idea on my part, as I have had endless problems since we started. Yesterday I burnt out my power cord to my PC making me lose yet ANOTHER 75% Big WU.........

Sorry to hear about those Big WU's. Losing those is a worse case scenario, for sure.

Keep at it Joe. This is a good way to get the bugs out your gear for the Chimp Challenge.

Remember, I'm not monitoring my stuff all next week so if my house of cards comes down I'll be doing almost no ppd :cry: .
