So my 'farm' now includes:
1.5 ghz p-m laptop, going 23.9/7 =my main machine
2.2 ghz xp-m desktop going 24/7 =my gaming machine
2 ghz xp desktop going 24/7 (on linux, and don't have it installed as a service, but don't ever plan on restarting :wink:) =my server
1.5 ghz xp going 24/7 pretty much =the machine I gave my sister
2.4ghz (I think) P4 16/7 or thereabounts =my other sisters machine. She needed a heater in her room, so I installed F@H and let the prescott do the rest

Woohoo.

So lets see, 584 ppd according to EMIII:
xp-m@2.2 - p752 =110 ppd
p-m 1.5 - p1149 = 218 ppd
p4 2.4 - p1161 = 121 ppd
xp @ 1.8 - p1136 = 135 ppd

Don't know about my sister's machine up in Atlanta though 8)

Woohoo, yay for big pointsl 868 ppd supposedly:
xp-m@2.2 - p752 =444 ppd
p-m 1.5 - p1149 = 218 ppd
p4 2.4 - p1153 = 115 ppd
xp @ 1.8 - p2358 = 91 ppd

That first one doesn't seem right. Hmm.

Yeah, the first one looks like a stats calculation glitch to me.

Don't worry, every one works at their own level, the trouble starts when you stop looking at computers as a work tool and look at them as a potential borging target :)

P.S. the sig looks good, might have to steal and use it myself.

I'm starting to do that already, was considering all sorts of stuff before I took a step back and reminded myself that I have neither the time nor the energy to try and get the NHS in Britain to let me borg all their systems. :lol: It's a bit depressing reading about people like leor adding half a dozen systems a day, all I've added to my main rig is a 600Mhz Celery (tonight) thats on 12/24 so far, although I've got a few more systems that just need a bit of TLC before I can set them folding so hopefully I'll add them within a few weeks :)

I'd be honoured, It's setup so that large numbers shouldn’t cause it any problems (i.e overlapping), took me a long time to do :P :)

I finally passed 300000 points, and so far farmpuma hasn't excluded my level from his milestones listing. And, I'm among the top 2000 folders now.

Congrats Ragnar Dan! You will be listed on the next milestones over 200K update.

While compiling the updates I'm often tempted to make the list 500K and above. But since EOC has stopped listing names with the milestones I'm also tempted to make the list 100K and above. Any thoughts or suggestions?

In other news .. I just passed the 200,000 point milestone! Yay me!!

P.S. jimBob, spworley and Toasty also recently passed 200K.

12,434 points this week. Over 4,000 better than my previous best.
I thought this was really addictive when I was doing 600 ppd, but when you turn red it gets Hella addictive.

Not quite so sure about that, got to borg more computers before thats likely. Would be nice if my 600mhz celery finished just one unit sometime soon:

21st Place

Sat Jan 28, 2006 2:25 pm

Well, I've been folding since July, 2004. In that time I have passed many milestones to encourage me and keep me folding. Thanks to all of you who helped keep the fire burning.

I remember when I just wanted to turn blue. Early on I climbed the ranks quickly, passing the graves of long dead folders who started on a lark and soon quit. I had some fierce competition from Serenescreen, Arpstorm, Elmopuddy, Hotdog and others. As I added to my modest farm, inspired by the top folders like Dr. Fish, JustBrewIt and Cass, I enjoyed the milestones - 50K, 100K, 200K. I longed to make it to the top 20 producers... then I made it. After a while, I was upset when I dropped off of the top 20 producers list.

I stand now in my recently won place on the team - 21st overall. My current goal is to reach the top 20, but the cream of the crop are committed competitors. With some of the new folk here, I'll be lucky to stay in the top 30 for the next 6 months. I'm at about 730K points. Longevity has been my ticket to the top 25. May it be yours too. :D
