Yeah, I came back online on Monday. I think a lot of people have to shut down their slots on weekends. For me it was stuff going on at the house. I needed to avoid generating heat and sucking in dust.

Sometimes weekends are rough for me like that, but I should be able to let my rig run all the way through this weekend and Monday.

If production level is maintained then 50mil is within reach. It is the make or break weekend! :D

And there's another target on the way to 50,000,000: only 4,074,337 more points needed to double last year's total for October!

Well, it looks like the last set of "game ready" drivers may have messed up my 1070's folding abilities. Ever since I installed the latest two driver versions (currently on 375.70), my GPU slot has failed. Anyone else having similar issues?
Edit: I rolled back to version 373.06 and everything seems fine now. Seems like 375.63 and 375.70 do not like folding with my GPU for some reason.

Unless something goes off the rails, looks like Frankie will surpass 40 million. Thanks to all of the GPU high-voltage! It's been a fun month.

Did you mean 50 million? ;)

50 million, yes. I can't blame the keyboard for that mistake.

Thanks again to everyone who participated. It was a great month.

As usual please screen cap the "scary graph" after a few days (to get some symmetry) and list some numbers for posterity. ;)

10.16 50,999,539 5,315 Work units

At this writing, we still have 2 more reporting periods for the month of October. We'll surely exceed 51 million points for this year.

Frankie rocked the house this year!

The last few years, participating in folding for Frankie has kind of become a tradition for me. It kind of ends the year for me (well, the summer at least) when we all start switching our gear over, and then throughout the month, it builds up to Halloween, costumes, and the neighborhood trick-or-treaters that come to my house.

In a way, Frankie kicks off the end of the year holidays for me, which is cool.

If you click on the "monthly" graph on EOC, you can see that our recent record was 30 million in 2014. We have shattered that record this year, nice. :D

I can't seem to upload a JPG image of the "scary chart". Does this forum allow upload/attachment photos?

The IMG tags are for pics hosted on a public server. I don't have one of those... :-?

No direct uploads. That said, all you need is a Dropbox account and you can link to that.

Or I can host it. PM me if you want to go that route and I'll give you an e-mail address you can send it to.
