Stratplan, I think this is the 3rd time you have passed me in the past week. no worries, I *will* pass you again.

This is turing into one of the best races I've had since I started folding :D

Thanks to a good string late Thursday and early Friday, I'm now back ahead by nearly 1000 points.....we'll see how long that lasts.

wunderbar, it seems that its you, me, Stratplan, Erasmus_B.Black (rumrunner) all headin up the charts at the same time, swappin out places (I did pass you twice last week, but you quickly passed back). Anyhow, I'm enjoying this race. Congrats on making rank 150 today. Right now I'm at 152, and with these 56 pointers I keep getting, don't know how long I'll tread water until I can start kickin' it again up the charts.

i have swapped places with Erasmus a few times so I'm not sure if he will maintain hiscurrent level or drop again as he has done before.

"Bullets" is coming up stong behind us at nearly 7000 points for the week already and its only Thursday evening...

Ouch - I'll duck and cover when Bullets speeds by in 10 days. I'll wave from my model-T when you, Screwball, pass in 729 days. But Erasmus is set to pass in 4 days, which, if he does, will suck extra huge, because I busted my ass the first time we were running neck and neck.

it's a tight battle indeed. it wil be intresting to see who gets to the top 100 first.

my 4400+ box got 2 364 point WU's :D haven't seen those in a while. 2 of them gets me a whopping 765ppd, which is more than what my 9 reporting CPU's have been doing combined in the past coulple weeks.

Lucky you, wunderbar. Most of my machines are still on lowball *gromacs. But then again, they are all Intel. C'est dommage. And I see as of this post you are again 150 and I am 151. Yay you!

*sigh*

Yeah, I've turned in all of 2 projects today - a 56 pointer and a 153 pointer. I've called other people who are folding for me, but a lot of them have started turning their computers off to save $$$ on energy bills. I may want the point increase, but I'm not gonna cut 'em a check each month for the privilege of folding on their systems.

Look out for fzaba, I'm sure he'll wave as he zooms by us.

I edited the thread title since ther is now a bunch of us fighting for position.

My ppd is going to plummet for a day or 2. after spending 4 days crunching a couple 400pt gromacs, my X2 box crashed.

My windows install was been buggered up lately, I was trying to avoid re-installing until the end of april because of schooling(formatting and installing the OS and apps takes a loooong time), so I had been babying it along. I tweaked something that I hoped would fix it......and it broke the install, corrupted the filesystem. Good thing I had a made a backup the day before. So now when I get home from school today I get to format windows.......something I have no time for, at all.

This really is shaping up to be one of the best battles on the forum right now. We all have similar PPD, and are clibing over eachother, clawing for every spot and every point. it's going to be an amazing finish.

Huh - almost all 2 ranks apart right now.

143 Stratplan
145 wunderbar
147 Erasmus_B._Black
149 fzaba
151 lkhanson
152 Bullets
164 Screwballl

'course, I've been spinning my wheels around 150 for, what seems like 2 weeks now (since I posted on 3/9). I'll switch places with Bullets tomorow (and back to 152), then Screwball, right now it's 65 days. Unless I stop spinning, I'll tip my hat as you chug by me.

we may be 2 ranks apart, but it only takes a couple good days to get us all bunched up again. It's also making me want to add more boxes for the extra edge :evil:

The race is tighter than you think. Some of those "missing" numbers are inactive members. This race is definitely a lot of fun. Keep up the good work guys.
