Something amazing is going to happen...

It won't last more than a week, but it will be a nice little boost for the team.

At 900ppd, it will take 112 PS3s to get 100k ppd. It's more likely he has his hands on ~20 9800GTXs, doing 5000 ppd each.

If you are going to do 100K ppd, then someone already beat you to the punch with a 51-GPU 265K ppd farm. :o

Yeah, and it was going to be beautiful... I'm running off to class, but I'll post this afternoon about what went right and what went wrong, and where another forum member may be able to make it happen again!

Bah! I can't even keep my fastest and slowest SMP machines running. The one won't OC as high on certain WU's, or something, and the other one won't even run at stock speed for some reason, though it used to. :evil:
