Old timer? I mean, I voted for him, too. But "old timer"? Hardly. LOL.
Compared to most of these guys here, atleast I was here for the tail end of your involvement :p

I don't know CO... Those guys probably all run Linux machines and don't know how to turn it off and back on again...

Back in the days, when there was only rock, cause they hadn't broken down into dirt, yet, and we walked our pet dinosaurs on said rocks ...
... and "D" meant a pizza box stuffed with a headless OC'ed AMD T-bird
Back when my kitchen was pink from the Mojo spill.
That spill is still a tragic moment!

I threw down some points for a few months this winter (needed the heat lol). It was incredibly disheartening to see a Ryzen 3600 and Vega 64 generating the daily output that 4x 2u boxen running bigadv back in the day did. The point inflation is real.

Yep, f@h always tried to keep a benchmark standard based on "science" done, so as CPUs and GPUs and scientific codes improved, PPD exploded. Its really hard to trace time/effort/money donated over the course of years/decades. New 2P servers still do well, my 2P Epyc 7601 does in the 1.3-1.6m PPD range, so its not only the GPUs.

Yes, I will 110% agree on that. Whenever I see a sale/special price I get a bottle whether I'm out ot not.
