well that's what i would guess, i'm doing my best have my 2000+ working alll the time (well when i'm not on it anyways, screen saver) and my g/f's comp only a 733 pIII but it helps! well i'm up to 72nd and moveing up, how about you?
Yeah, I meant weekly production rates. I have my work machine constantly chugging, but the home machine is intermittant. Being on the top of a hill leads a person to unplug the computer when there is at all a threat of lightning. Of course that could mean a new machine for the price of a deductable... hmmm
Actually, based on numbers, it looks like we are very close to the 9th and 10th place competitors in weekly numbers (ArsTechnica and Alliance). We are going to zip up to 12th place - then stagnate for quite a while - since the only three we can catch at that point have about double our overall total.
I won't take your dare - because it isn't Khutarl or Damage who are stagnating. Now ... a list of inactive members who are actively posting ... hmmm. (How much has production dropped with college out for the summer?)
I guess stagnating isn't really the right word, since we would still be gaining. It's just that once we hit 12th place, we will be about 50,000 behind the next person we could pass - and only gaining about 2,000 a week on them. That's approximately 6 months of sitting in 12th place.
Aye, getting into the top for overall production is not an easy nor a quick task, it will take time and dedication. But I know that for the most part, those who are participating will continue to do so. I myself keep finding more hardware to put into the mix.
I've only got a 65 point lead on Damage so I expect to be passed within the next day or so. My production levels have roughly been the same. I average 500 point weeks. Damage has been pulling down nearly 1000 points a week. No way I can compete with that.
Also, I think that the summer heat has hindered my production.
