I think this 285 is cursed, along with all the computer problems I also have strep throat. Missed two days of class and 2 labs. Lots of makeup work.

Hey Joe, what was up with the 29,000 ish point update the other day?

Possibly a non-passkeyed Big WU or a really late one?

Not razzing - just wondering.

I have to quit this challenge I think. Nothing has gone right since I started it I swear. I go home for a weekend and my internet gets unplugged an hour after I leave. At this rate my computer might blow up before the end of the month.

First consider this:

I'm 2200 miles from home for a whole week just hoping that things don't fall apart because I won't be able to get things going from here.

Of course, it's up to you. Your call.

That happened to me over the summer, except I was closer. My i7 restarted, booted into linux (I was running windows at the time), and I was left with a measly (for me in the middle of a long-term gauntlet) from a pentium d 840 and an 8800 GT :evil:


when I get remote desktop running, JoeCobra could be getting some assistance :twisted:

Sorry for the delayed response - been real busy. Things are going good for the most part. The only issue is the Bigadv tpf's have been down from 35 - 36 to 39 - 40 for some reason. But, all in all, things are doing just fine.

So I checked out Extremeoverclocking stats page, looks like at our current PPD I will be 2 places behind Swing by the end of this (About 100k Points). If only I hadn't lost those 3 BigWU!

But there is still a month left so anything could happen!

You're right about that! I just lost a BigWU last night that was in the 20% - 30% range. I seem to be getting a lot more zero point updates lately for some reason even though my GTX260-216 is chugging away as per usual. This may all make for an interesting finale 8)

Fourth(ish) week update. We're about halfway there!!

Joecobra - 681,266

SwingOp3 - 930,996

Joecobra had some serious issues crop up with BigWu's not making it to the end, internet connections getting shut off and miscellaneous mechanical meltdowns. He's picked it up in a big way in the last few days after he reconsidered quitting altogether.

Right after he started pumping out big numbers I had some issues with one computer running slowish and myself losing a BigWU as well. Things seem to have stabilized on my end - for now anyways.

And to add to the mix above we've got Mr Emoticon himself - Tedster threatening to make things interesting :o

The next 30 days should prove to be fun to watch and hopefully productive.

Hey Joe

Looks like things have really turned for the better on your end. You're constantly on my threat list.

Well Done!

About that....I just went on spring break and my dad dislikes me leaving the computer on when I am not using it. So no big WU till about Saturday. After that, full steam ahead.

It has been awhile......

Basically this warm up has killed me. My i7-920 runs at about 80C with bigWU, but if I lower the OC I don't know if I can finish them before the bonus is over. So for now I am just folding on the 285 and 275. I am officially conceding SwingOp3. Maybe at a later date (I.E. Winter) we can have another race.
