    Congrats!

    Ditto to what Tank said. We ain't losing nothin'. The community has won from our competition. I'll tell you guys what you told us when we passed you. We will be back. Now you guys have the target on your back. Don't it feel good? Cudos muchos.

    OCN putting the hammer down

    My guess is that there are probably not too many of the top teams that are not using HPCS to do some folding. I don't think this skews the points very much if at all. Some may be doing it more effectively than others and if OCN is more effective that's great. They have a history of pulling...

    I'm sorry..

    LOL. Naw, I'm too old to start over again.

    I'm sorry..

    LOL, yea, that thread was simply wishful thinking. There are a few folders that are known throught the folding community, and Tobit is one who is well respected everywhere. He would be welcomed on any team he chose to go to.That is, IF he ever decided to leave here. To me, it appeared only...

    Congratulations to the team [H]

    On passing 5 billion points. Quite a bit of awesomeness there I'd say.

    Welcome Falcon_CMH

    I carry no weight over here, prolly not much over at EVGA either, but just want to post this. Best of luck here, Falcon. I truly hope you find this to be a happy home away from home. To all the visitors here from EVGA, please try to leave the past over there. Everyone deserves the advantage...

    [H]O [H]O [H]O! - Santa visits Uncle Tobit early!

    Nice, but I think I would like to get mine from a reputable retailer instead of Santa for a couple really good reasons. First, Santa is not an authorized EVGA retailer, so there is no warranty, second, and more important, the elves use wooden mallets to build the toys. I don't think I want my...

    The race to 4 billion

    Uh-Oh. Another race. I better put a better oil in my gas in my two stroke engine so I can pop a wheelie or two.

    The race to 4 billion

    I want to be the first to cogratulate you guys an a great effort to get to 4 billion before us. As I have said before there are no losers in this, only winners. The race is not to 4 billion, nor is it a race to number one. It is a race for cures to devastating illnesses. Sometimes in competition...

    Is it time to do something different? Ask for a merger?

    Probably the ramp up is almost all you guys. Which other team or teams had any appreciable drop when you guys started your massive ramp up? I already looked so I know the answer.

    Is it time to do something different? Ask for a merger?

    I don't know if you can do a search for my remote past posts, but I mentioned not long after I joined this forum that you guys needed to start ramping up back then. I was pretty mich dismissed with EVGA being considered a non entity. Even though it is late in the game, you guys are going flat...

    Over at EVGA

    Dang. I thought that would take a little longer to answer. I just happened to be flipping from NatGeo to the Science Channel reviewing theories of universal expansion and quantum coupling, when I happened to see that old Batman movie. The only good one was with Heath Ledger. The Liam Nielson...

    Update on the trash talk thread at EVGA. Monty Python quotes are now allowed. Trash talk in a trash talk thread has been OK'd. Let's get the fun rolling again.:D:cool::p We still will have to keep things family friendly so no cursing or discussion of private parts.:o

    When I was 8 Kennedy was still president. We had 3 channels on TV which was still black and white. So I couldn't build my first computerr. I think they were still the size of buildings back then.

    This thread was fun to read. You know what they say about Texas??? It would be the third largest state if you cut Alaska in two. My point? It takes combining two teams half as good as EVGA to come close to beating us....... Let the friendly trash talk begin!!! Dang. where are the...

    The race to 4 billion

    Just throwing an idea out there. Instead of a points goal, since we all agree there is too much emphasis on points. How about a WU goal? Specifically a Basic CPU WU goal. We can set it up as a CC type challenge and everyone fold under one name but still in their team to, say, 1000 basic CPU WUs...

    The race to 4 billion

    I would be up for that, too. I want to find some common ground for our teams to meet so there isn't so much rancor. This should be both fun, and productive. As I keep saying, our teams are not enemies. We both have common goals, just different real estate we post in.

    The race to 4 billion

    I believe you, Tobit. I am done with it too. Time for this to be put to bed. The posting rules here are different than at EVGA. Once profanity creeps into the post we will always remove it. You guys allow it in the body of the message but not the title. We welcome all opinions there. When we...

    The race to 4 billion

    Not calling him out, just asking for for concurrence. I was accused of deleting posts in a biased manner. That was not the case. Since those posts are gone, I simply asked Tobit to back me up. I was just over at the folding forum looking for those rules. I certainly do not want to support...

    The race to 4 billion

    The posts that were deleted over there were clear violations of our TOS. I did not delete anything that did not have profanity (Tobit speak up) or personal attacks against members in our community. Similar posts were deleted from our current team members. I did not single out [H] members. The...

    Way To Fold [H]orde!

    Thank you. Yes we are pretty remarkable. With the TZC we have going on several members that had gone inactive, but had been large producers, have come back on line. Plus many folks who had reserve that was unutilized ramped up their farms. Adding that to the first of month spike, cooler weather...

    Way To Fold [H]orde!

    Sorry if it sounded like I was starting something there. I was actually trying to be humerous. I know how hard you guys have worked through the years to not only get to where you are but to stay there as well. Apollo is certainly one of the folks we should all look up to for what he has done for...

    Way To Fold [H]orde!

    Say what?:confused: In the EVGA forums we only allow English posts. I'm checking Gaelic and Celtic translations to see what the above means. Oh, yea. I've been a mod over there about 3 weeks now. Been folding 3 years for them. That's all I could translate. Little help from other...

    Way To Fold [H]orde!

    Hey guys. Just wanted to let you know our spike is purely the intra-team contest. It will be nice if we keep up the production after the contest ends, but a lot of guys who usually hold back for one reason or another have chipped in to their respective time zone team, to try to get a win. A ton...

    Call to arms!

    I think that is the whole idea behind GPU3. To use the current shaders more optimally in all cards. Including ATI I believe.
  34. R

    Call to arms!

    I agree there are a lot of unknowns. No idea of price of the new cards, but my guess is they will HAVE to be at least competetive with the ATI product, especially in this economy. If so, then the $1000 the OP was talking about would buy 2 of these new cards. Stick them in a basic SLI board and...

    Call to arms!

    Right now he is mystery man. We have no idea from where he came or how he got the fermi cards. My point in posting in this thread is to encourage waiting to invest in the gear to build this folding machine. If one machine can produce over 200,000 PPD with the new cards, why waste money now...

    Call to arms!

    Here is an interesting new development. http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=100960237 It looks like the new GPU might be a big producer.

    EVGA down to 1.2 years

    Not exactly. The -bigadv is new. We had a couple guys who had access to large numbers of blade servers who folded on them for quite some time. So these were the regular smp clients, just tons of them.

    EVGA down to 1.2 years

    I know some folks have issues with stability and performance of their clients. They are a pain to install, and can lead to performance issues. I find that my 280s have more issues running the clinets than my 250s do. I can keep the clients running on both my 250s (not in SLI) and have no...

    EVGA down to 1.2 years

    The way the points work on these -bigadv units is that if you complete one in 2.7 days, you get 50,000 points for the WU. Yes that is 50,000 (fifty thousand) for one singel WU. If over 2.7 days, then it is half that, but 25,000 is still a nice chink of change. Here is the chart of one of our...
