Well we are down 6 million points, but the ppd is close, so this is looking like a good race.

I think the Mods should call out for some help from other Mods ;)...........Pretty sure there are some Others sandbagging......I might be one of those sandbaggers :)

Well here's a morning laugh for everyone.
I had trouble with my passkey not working. I would copy and paste it and it said "invalid value".
Tried 5 times. Well I tried again this morning and it worked, jumped to over 3 million ppd :)
I guess when you copy and paste it you don't use those 2 dots before the number

How do you sandbag F@H? You lose points for not reporting promptly.

In other news, I've been shooting up like a rocket!

I don't think it will last, but it's a nice graph. :)

I put the two 4GB sticks of RAM into the two G4560 rigs. Only getting around 170K PPD, with two RX 570 cards, but Task Manager shows 5.6GB of VM being used, but only 1.8GB of actual RAM being used. Disk is like 0%-1%. So I'm not sure if it's really swapping much. (It has a 240GB SSD.)

Well, gotta re-do some boxes soon, and get some more DDR4 RAM when I get some more money.

I think he means not turning on all hardware, like me. But I can't (unless I figure out a way)

Time for a night op over to the neighbor's house with a heavy gauge extension cord.
Well, I got one box turned on, and no blown circuit breakers yet, and one 1060 not on this list. I should be at 17 million ppd, and 2 1070TI's left to power up.:

Here are the stats for December 6, 2018, St. Nick's day:

The racers' stats:




The daily production:



And the whole teams production:



This looks very nice, doesn't it?
But we still need a few more racers. The Mark&Mods team needs a folder or two ... or both teams would benefit from some more participants!
Please recruit more, More, MOre, MORe and MORE!

Wow, not bad. My one machine with two RX 570 cards, was showing 175K PPD, when I put the RAM back in and powered them back up, but I just looked at it now, and it's showing 575K PPD. Not too shabby. If I get the other near-identical boxen configured for F@H, that will make over 1M PPD. Gotta get that done.

Yeah, I'd be surprised if any other mods joined as I just don't don't think it's their thing.

We'll crunch as much as we can, and if we go down, then it won't be from a lack of trying.

Well, forget that last picture. Blew the breaker, and almost lost 2 computers, so back to the one before.

elfenix/elfenix - joining the mods team
Do you know what your ppd is ? Just an estimate. Or what hardware you are crunching on ? I can't find you in the team stats

But thanks for joining ! I need all the help I can get.

I say a little over 2 million, cool. Linux ?

Oh, and make sure you get a passkey, if you do, and configure them with that, after 10 units you get the bonus, and that most of your ppd.

Its configured on all your hosts ? If so, after 10 units, your ppd will jump.
