:p

Idunno, getting into the top 200 felt like an accomplishment. Rank 199 and on the rise, and with the addition of my (recently lidless) 165, nothing can stop me. :cool: Not even Moose. Top 100, here I come!

Good job! Now you're getting to the hard part... Takes a long long time to get from top 200 to top 100... even 150 takes a while. Good luck! :)

I've been working my way for a while to the same spot and then you had to blow by me and push me back down...

But I'm still holding off peck22...for now....

Congrats! Always room for one more upstairs.

Heck, the way power bills are around here, it might be MY spot you take. :eek:

But first, I need to set the bar at 1.5 million. Give you something to shoot for.

:D

Power bill issue is awful, as we have discussed. Something in my mind is preventing me from doing the $ per point calculation, I think it will be a scary number for sure

Spoken as truth. I have that goofy Kill-A-Watt clone running on half the farm (the slower half), and right now, I'm not sure I want to get into eyeshot of the thing.

Ahh, what the hell, it's only a bullet. :rolleyes:

Must. Reset. That. Damn. Thing. $12 per month per machine, according to the calc.

Something is Not Right.

Tsue, you *really* want this spot? :D

Um... No... By definition, there isn't any more room in the top 100 :p

But you can try anyways ;) Probably beat me in, anyways...

Its damn hard to get here, and took a long time.

So someone else got bumped out. All I meant is there aren't more than 100 people in the top 100 :p

But I say we break that record! :D

I had under 100K when I first got into the top 100(2-3 years ago, I can't even remember when I started), and have clawed my way into the top 50 a few months ago. The comp is quite fierce up here. Borging is important if you want a low(er) power bill.

If you think getting to the top 200 was hard, just wait until you get to the top 150. I've been pulling every dirty little trick I know just to keep my spot for the most part and I'm only at 141 (soon to be 142).

I might have a chance at 140 in the next couple of weeks but I'm not betting on it. If only I had been able to get that dual core Opty like I had planned. Then I'd be doing okay for the moment. Anyway, I will find a way to climb some more. It may take me a while but I will get there. I am still going to find a way into the top 100 damnit.

Yeah, I really don't want to do this either, now that I have my own place and am paying Niagara Mowhawk to run my farm. I miss the old days of "free" power at school.

Though look at it this way. If you're gonna spend the money, and you're dumping power into some older POS, you can sorta maybe slightly rationalise an upgrade into dual core land :p

Good job!

1 more week and I should have my farm back up and going. That reminds me...I need to schedule the internet install...Some people. Gods. Rack #1 gets installed this morning. I should find a way to borg the phone system. It's a 19U and takes up my rack space. At least my ceiling is 10ft high so that I can stack the single boxen on top of the racks. I had them pull 90a in 120w's and another 30w in a 220w outlet for me. Power is NOT going to be an issue. I am worried about the noise and heat. I do know that I have 165cfm of cold air coming into the room, but I doubt it's enough. Btw...The old farm pics are now about 2/3's of the number in the farm now.

About one week for me to go to the top 200. From there, it'll be a long, hard journey up the ranks...

It took me ten months to get to #338 at Team33. Going strong with six of my own computers. I've not been able to do any borgs.

Ranked something like # 5600 worldwide.

Power bill is not too bad. Nothin to complain about, but maybe I will this summer when the air conditioning is running.

My goal is to break the top 200 here at the [H]orde.

Thanks to our heavy lifters, as well as the rest of us grunts.

edit / corrected my team rank [poor memory]

1 more day to break into the top 200....

I just need to start borging now if I plan on going anywhere - but they just installed a program here at work to turn the computers into a render farm when not in use, so there goes some borg possibilities...

But my 9 computers in my room are going strong and heating it up too much. Hopefully I won't have to cut back this summer...I do want to replace some of the crappers with dual cores though - but then again, I need a new car too...so I'm scrapping and saving there.

Top 200...here I come :)

its impossible to ever have enough computers folding... Im currently in the top 20 producers for team 33 but I still feel as though im not producing enough and there are no more computers around to borg :(
