Everything that I have, what little it is, is working full time on NFS. Gonna need a major push to catch XS and TSBT in the next 25 hours.

I just added an old Dell OptiPlex with a Haswell i5 I had kind of forgotten about. Looking around my house for more hardware.. uhh.. I might be a PC parts hoarder :p. Any chance an Athlon XP1600+ will help? :D /s

With that said, 5+ million points on the first day was a hell of a drop @VietOZ , and I have no issues with that :) Even bunkering right up against the task deadline that would take a ton of hardware.

My narrative stops there because there's nobody to step in while the emperor fries Luke :p "help us _____ (crunching@evga? hardforum? L'Alliance Francophone? Marinph's team?) - You're our only hope?

Wow, Impressive run by @StefanR5R, other members of our TeAm and the other teams after I went to bed. I'm saving my emperor frying us meme for the next GPU sprint, though, where @VietOZ and others have more fire power :)

I'm not sure when FreeDC updated. I am still running NFS at 100 %, so the figure includes a little more than what went into the sprint (but not much more).

The two 230V × 16A circuits in my living room are enough to power all this in principle. But I currently have another cable crossing the corridor into the room, posing a tripping hazard. That's left from when I also ran GPUs. I have yet to allow for the minutes of downtime necessary to replug the computers.

Also, several of the wall outlets are getting very warm. Their contacts were certainly corroded already before I moved into this place; I need to take care of that eventually.

Besides, the question is not only for how many hamster wheels to spin, but also for how many days to spin them. ;-)

Ah, and it's a good thing for the outcome of this sprint that I recently doubled up the RAM of my older computers, after long hesitation to spend more money on these already somewhat outdated computers.
