Let me welcome back Flybywire! I see your production is climbing and you regained a notch.
Good to have you back. Another red on the Gerbils stats!

Thanks, Fuzz, it's good to be back! Looks like I've got quite a bit of climbing to do to regain lost ground. UGN will have to wait just a bit longer as my immediate concern is fending off our second highest cruncher, JPinto. :evil: I'll not got down without a fight! :wink:


Man, he's only 2 days away! You better fight hard

C'mon guys. $100 gets you a 8800GT which is good for 35000 PPW.


OK I'll bite where can I get a 8800gt for $100??

There had been a 256 MB 8800GT at Newegg for ~$107 including shipping, and it had a $30 MIR making it under $80 for most Americans. It went out of stock rather rapidly, and at some point last week ZipZoomFly had one for even cheaper, maybe $10 less (though I never got to see the deal nor what the shipping might have cost). It disappeared practically instantly with the link dead (see this thread in the Hot Deals forum). The Newegg one was supposed to re-appear today, when new stock came in, and now it's listed as "De-activated", which looks bad.

So those who got it when it was hot got one, and those who didn't... will have to wait for the next deal. :)

No, you should feel honored. :D Your folding prowess is being acknowledged. All hail the Griz-man!

I think you should install Fahmon, switch your username to UnitedGerbilNation and then have a "Fold-Off" with David to see who contributes the most points for the next 4 weeks! :P :wink:

Actually, you're PPD would give a big boost to UGN, so you'd BE on of the big boys :D

Few UGNers are running the SMP or GPU2 clients, so their points contribution is low compared to what you're producing.

It's "UnitedGerbilNation"... That's the first step, then there will be much rejoicing, a parade, letter from the president of your country, girls will swoon, etc... Oh and we add you to the census :wink:

ok, noob question. Where do I find the updated census of everyone and how everyone is doing with the contribution to UGN? I would still like to follow my own stats. Couldn't find anything on the forums.
