We also passed the Juggernaut sometime on Tuesday I think. Frankie make big scary all month long! Massive big scary!
Interesting side note: The points were higher but we also brought in fewer total work units this month compared to a year ago. I surmise that these high-dollar x17's all take 7+ hours for anybody and everybody to finish, and maybe even 9-10 hours for slower HD and GTX cards to complete, effectively reducing the number of WUs to only 2 or 3 that each slot could be capable of finishing within any given 24 hour span.
Oh yes and the mystery is killing me...I really really want to know the PPD for a Titan
, how long the average x17 work unit takes for those GPUs to complete, compared to the dual GPU cards GTX690 and HD7990. Does anybody have any idea, or could you point me someplace where I could research and compare myself?
Oh yeah, I almost forgot:

Thank you Khali for your effort and for participating. Ditto to everybody else who joined Team Frankie this year! I hope you all continue to fold under your own accounts after October is over, but if for whatever reason you cannot or choose not to, please know that your contributions are valued and appreciated. This was a fun team effort, and I enjoyed checking the stats. Sometimes in the morning before my coffee, sometimes on lunch break (or a bathroom break, yikes!), and other times in the car before driving home or to some personal event or commitment. It was a lot of fun anticipating and checking in. I was going to give some reminders Thursday, but Halloween is always busy in my haunted house, so I will give them now:
--->> For the purposes of mathematics, the Extreme database is on Central time zone (and that's really the main source we're all using anyway). So for those of you in Eastern US time zone, you can run your Frankie work units up until 12:59 am ET on November 1st and those work units will still count toward October's numbers.
--->> Of course, if you look at your folding client's status in between trick-or-treaters, you'll be able to tell when your last October units will complete or already have completed. Like for example if it's 9 pm Central Time and your two units say "6 hours" and "22 hours", then you can switch over at that time anyway since those work units couldn't possibly be completed in time to be counted in October's totals.
--->> As you all switch your systems back to your own account, don't forget to correctly spell your account name/folding name, and don't forget to also switch back to your own key. If you retained the original confirmation email from Pande/Stanford, then your key will be in there.
Let's see what the next 48 hours will bring!ROWARRR!!
