Well this looks like it could be a doozy. Who will be the first in [H] to 200 Million?

It is Musky in pole position right now, but Dropper and Patriot will make things interesting.

Hard to predict with this week being stuffed by a bigadv server outage and then the landing of the 6903. And Patriot announcing a new monster rig. I think anything is possible. Place your bets gentlemen.

Shoot, how the mighty FLECOM has fallen! *Salutes his valiant efforts to keep hundreds of machines folding earlier in his folding career.*

Congratulations to the 1 million + PPD folders! EVGA, you better watch your rearview mirror!

Kendrak, you should try to him 100k before they hit 200k... the above shot show's you will be close.

Prior to the bigadv shortage and the 6903s, dropper would pass me at around 180M. I don't know if the 6903s will help me more than dropper, but we shall see...

How long can he keep all his borgs is the question? Uncertain the future is. If it were certain and inevitable a month out, it would not be as fun to watch.:cool:

Holy hell, if Patriots ramp up is stealth then yours is straight up clandestine black ops.

Man I love this team.

That is gonna hurt...I think about the best I can do is 1.7M. It looks like 6903s are going to help dropper more than they will help me. Oh well....

I think you guys are a bit more optimized than I am ATM. I think I max around 1.3-1.4M but it seems like Musky's 4P Opteron 6166 is putting out better TPF than mine.

At least it seems I'll have a front-row view to the race!

mibw you should join the race back again :)

I am just for a few days, (KMac decided to donate the last part of his rental back to me, and would not take no for an answer) so DigitalFX is folding again.

But even with the 6903s I am a long way off the pace now... it is just fun to watch [H} dominate the world rankings. :cool:

Yea these 6903's are making me a bit peaky also. Like yesterday was almost 1.7M points and I'll be lucky to pull 1M today and 1M tomorrow. The switch to 6903's ended up being pretty rough in terms of losing -bigadv's on Linux process kills so hopefully I'll be on an up swing again.

yup... though I did it to three the other day... all made it.... don't reboot/shutdown right away if you pause... give it a minute,or ten, to write the checkpoints....

Yeah, ~29 days Musky will cross the 200M mark, and ~2 days later, I will.

I actually lost four in the last few weeks allowing 15 minutes to write to checkpoints using SSDs so transfer speeds are not an issue.

Well, I only have experience with regular SMP, but I rarely lose WU starting/stopping. I have it set to 5 min checkpoints.

Are you running linux? Thats where the issue arises.

When I was having overclocking issues and the thing would freeze it would start where I left off after hard resets. On Ubuntu 11.04, did that so many times on multiple WU, that I am surprised I didnt lose anything at all. Maybe 1 frame got lost.

1.5M-1.6M is as good as I am going to get. Is it enough to get to 200M first? We shall see....

Right now, it looks like we will both hit 200M at about the same time, 20 days from now.

16 days to go and still looking like Musky by a nose, unless Keith can wangle some moar D.

Patriots ramp is humungous, but starting from too far back.

Watch for my upcoming thread on first to 300 million ;)
