Thanks, Peter. I should (hopefully) be ramping up to 1M PPD soon. I put a third box, with an R5 1600 and an RX 470 on F@H, folding on both CPU and GPU. (Maybe a mistake not to disable CPU folding on that box, but I'm currently not using it for anything else.)

Yeah, yeah, I know you guys with your shiny GTX 1070 ti/1080/1080 ti can probably do 1M PPD on one card. I've got five Polaris cards cranking away. At least, it keeps my apt warm. :p

I'm not crunching Folding because I'm waiting for the companion projects --- Spindle and Mutilate;)

Re Folding on CPU, if you have an app that tracks GPU loading, sometimes there is a benefit to leaving at least a logical core free to service the GPU. Normally if I CPU fold, the app-generated CPU slot gets deleted and replaced with one that leaves some resources for the GPU. In the case of the 1600, that might mean a 10 logical core slot.

I added another GPU at night, as I convinced my extremely moody teenager to let me do Folding on his PC while he is sleeping.

I told him that way he could help science, and not need to use a space heater as the GPU would keep his room nice and warm. :p

It start looking good for the mods; the number of folders in increasing, as well as their production.
Let us hope that the added Mods continue to fold and to produce more points.
Then All the others have to start to recruit ... ;)

Nah, we just need to give a few of the biggest contributors on their team an offer they can't refuse. ;)

Some bad news for the mod team.

We had a lot of freezing rain last night, so the power has been going up and down all day because of branches falling on power lines. So I've had to remove one of my machines all together since it's not on a UPS system, and I don't want it to get damaged from the unreliable power.

It looks like it will be off for at least a day (or longer if we end up totally losing power later on).

Congrats mark on 8 billion in F@H :beercheers:
WOW, thanks, you caught this before me ! and a little over a week for 2 more places, back to 28th place overall, same as before curecoin came into the picture.

@UsandThem. Well, my jerryrig is holding me at 18 million ppd for now, so lets see the stats today, if we are gaining on the 20 million deficit.
