Yes you have a hill to climb. But I won't be adding any power until Yorkfield.
OK since I have had a few beers. Holidays you know!
Lets talk trash!
drfish is in the bottom of the pond, suck pond scum. Seg broke his spirit.
Leor is asking for another black eye.
Kube is the only one putting up more points.

Anyone want to respond?????? I know you do!!!!!

Hmm, Yorkfield is just right around the corner so that doesn't give me much time to lessen that half million point deficit. At our current production, you'll trounce those gerbils three months ahead of me. :( However, I can't resist a good challenge.. maybe get those little gerbils' wheels spinning a little faster and send them into a frenzy. So last one to steamroll the gerbils is a pansy. :D

I will take that wager. As a gentleman wager. I shall not call you by the name you used. I hated the doodyhead bet! See you at the top.

Still wonder why Leor or drfish have no comment. Trash talk did not excite them.

Farmpuma, I like all three of your ideas! You or flybywire pick. He did use
"hunt" in his message when he threw down the gauntlet. Flybywire is doing well this week. Congrats to Flybywire! Congrats to Emkubed as well!

The hunt is on it is. Good call.
No I am not sweating yet. It is warm in the compute room. I think we can stand more heat. Bring it ON!

I fold at home.

See you at the top!

OK, I hope I haven't mangled this thread split to badly and I believe all the related links go to the right places.

During my recent quest to be TR's fiftieth millionaire I borrowed back my donated 150 to 200 PPD single core system from the UGN collective. I will be returning it to the UGN effort along with one of my 500 PPD SMP systems after I pass the 1,000,000 point milestone. I owe jeffry55, big time!

And when you start closing on UGN I may add more hardware to help keep things interesting. Good luck with your race to the moving finish line.

I sent them a nice message, with a wake up call.

We will see if they get excited. I don't remember seeing a bunch of scramblin'
or is that Scrambled Gerbils.

Flybywire, I had I couple of system problems. Fans. I ordered 5 new fans. Should be back to normal soon. Ordering an X38 motherbrd for a Penryn!
That might even things up.
You forgot frozen Gerbils. You store them for later use. It is that time of year.
Not here in South Florida tho.

Jeffry, I think our staying power is real good and going to get better. I did not get to the TOP 10 over night.

Oh, and it will not take a year!!!

I figured you were having some hardware issues, as I'm sure you wouldn't allow me to waltz by you without working for it. X38 board, eh? You don't fool around, do you? :)

The Nation is responding to the challenge. We will achieve a slow and steady gain in production over the next six months that will make your planned gerbilcide quite difficult. :D

Nice poem Jeffry!
Lets see what the stats say.
I have double the Gerbils points so far for the week and
Flybywire points are 3x.
Keep trying we like the challenge!
With Wolfdale and Yorkfield arriving soon I may just have
to add as many points as as you are producing! Don't get nervous
yet, Wolfdale is 6 days away. Yorkfield is still to be determined.
Some parts are arriving this week.

See you at the TOP!

Wolfdale, Core 2 Duo E8xx0, 45nm dual core.
Yorkfield, Core 2 Quad Q9xx0, 45nm quad core, essentially 2 Wolfdale's packed together.

Both are part of the "Penryn" processor family (coincidentally Penryn is also the codename for mobile versions of the same processors.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

Gerbils unite! Fold for UnitedGerbilNation, team 2630.

Gerbils did not know what Wolfdale was? It would not fit in their PIII boards, or is that K6 boards, anyhow.
