But with 4 cores and the early return bonus, their point (and ppd) values are in the thousands! ;)

I think our team's best writer(s) should slap together a plea for more folders, because we're going to be passed by another team in barely 2 weeks and then we'll be further behind the top 10 teams, and things don't look very good from there.

Yea, I noticed that too. Got a 580 chugging out 16K. Not a whole lot. Seriously thinking of getting another 580 or maybe that is overkill? A 570 would do? Sorry, I have been so long out of the loop. Got a job finally that is pulling in some income.

While today wasn't near what yesterday was, it certainly is a better day than many before.

I think the smaller cards are actually a better bang for the buck. The GTS450 I think is in the sweet spot right now. There's a thread about it somewhere.

If anyone needs the passkey for Big Adv WUs let me know.

I assume you are talking about 16K ppd? Where have you been these past few months then? :P It sounds low or am I too out of reach about these things? Considering my GT 240 is doing 3K-4K, and what does a regular quad core CPU do nowadays, 8K? My 875K is doing 18-20K for the -bigadv at 130W TDP. The 580 seems a bit inefficient for its power consumption is it not?

Seriously, where is Jeffry? I hope he is ok...

Last time I talked to him was when one of the 8800GTS cards died, but that was a couple months ago.

I am okay, no wait ....................I am really good. :wink:

I have dropped out of folding for now. Lot's of new blessings in my life. Got married a few months ago. Two new grandchildren born in the last 30 days. Moved again. :roll: Living closer to my children and more involved in their lives. All-in-all, life is good. I keep a watch on the forum and comment from time-to-time.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that most of your Santa dreams come true. Here's a toast to an even better New year. :D

No, I think it is 16K per WU. So about 16K every 2 hours or so. Is that bad? I have a GTX260 around. Need to upgrade the MB tho. Wanted to wait for the 2011 pin processor, but then I could be dreaming, huh? SB is nice, I would just like a like more oomph.

I know, I have been out of it for so long. Jeffry gave me some really nice toys to farm with, but they have since die little by little and then the MB just fried and I lost my job. It seems to be either all good or all bad! :D

Jeffry! Awesome! They are all truly blessings! Enjoy it as I know you will.

No, you guys are right it is 16K PPD. Not good. Need to add more toys.

More than 3 days!! This is how big those -bigadv WUs are, 60k points translating to ~20k ppd! :o

I am stopping that for now, reverting to a regular A3 WU since I hope to take the system down for some work soon. According to HFM.net I am on track of doing "just" ~6000ppd for this WU, early return bonus considered. We just need another i7 owner to join the nation or someone go out and get one to chew on these -bigadv. We can get back to top 20 easy that way. :D

No i7's up on boxing day at CC. We'll see what NCIX has to offer when they update their link...

EDIT: Actually there is one i7 up there now. 260 bucks for the 950

*grumbles*
It seems I had a bit of a crash on the folding node yesterday. My internet and power are making things frustrating.
At least this cold weather means a nice quiet folding node....maybe a little too quiet. I have trouble sleeping when it's not humming away in my room.

We've been passed by, and now we're merely a former contender. 'Tis a shame.

My CoGage True Spirit HS, btw, still awaits installation. Its so darned dim in the evenings that I have to wait for a weekend to do it, or bring in more lighting, anyway.

I still have parts to make folding nodes. Any TR Folders interested? I have a MB, CPU, memory, a power supply and several NVidia Video cards available, including a couple of 9800GX2s. Here's a good way to start your folding addiction! Free parts, you pay the shipping. :P

While I'm not particularly interested in helping UGN, if you have a C2D-compatible motherboard, I might be interested in buying it. Depending on what it can do, I'll use it for my C2D 6400 or C2Q 8400 processor (which is already running on a Gigabyte P965 board), and take my pokey dual core Athlon out of service. Should increase my output somewhat.

Okay Ragnar, I will check my excess parts to see what I have. :D

Hey, I just finished a book about the Danes invading England in 970 A.D. and one of the lead characters was named Ragnar. Fancy that! :wink: Are you a Dane? :o

Sounds good.

I'm not Danish, though I do have Swiss, German and English ancestry. I took that name from a character in a well-known book when I was in a sour mood around 20 years ago, and it sort of stuck.

May have noticed the points are down the past few days. My node is down now. I will be mailing it out as soon as I can. May be a little while though. The new floors are down in almost every room, and what used to be my office is now painted...*sigh*....pink.

Next comes the basement, then the cabinets and counters. It has kept me quite busy, but once things get a bit closer to done I will be sending the node off. The UGN will be back. Many thanks to Chun¢ for offering up his cool basement. :)

Sorry to leave you on your own FlyingFox. Once my node is delivered, and the other node Jeffry is sending out is delivered, the UGN should see a massive resurgence. Just wish I could participate longer. :(
