    Running linux or windows server? Linux is required for bigadv.

    In the graph below the effect of the PrimeGrid Challenge is quite visible:

    Looked for The_LAWNoob before doing the last stats - did not find him then.
    I'll assign The_LAWNoob before doing the stats for today if I find any production!

    Welcome to the race, The_LAWNoob! :)

    v6 client? If so, max packet size "big" and advmethods turned off?

    If you post the "startup" portion of the log file, I might be able to help.

    hmmm no trash talking ?

    Anyway, in a little over 6 hours I finish my first bigadv, so then I will see if all my optimizations worked.

    If I were on the Firecats, I'd be PMing Folders who are not in the race..:colbert:

    Thanks for the stats, Peter. :)

    Fry's has GTX 460's on sale for $59 today but as of now they're in-store pickup only.. if only I had a Fry's near me I'd grab 8+ to help keep it competitive :|

    Tempting since two of my machines can run two gpus and are currently running a single gpu. Sadly they are both upstairs and it gets too hot as it is. The wife would kill me too.

    Man - I'd be done for buying a pair if I had a Fry's close. *all* I have is a MicroCenter...

    Sigh. Looks like I must be down a folder or something based on my scores, not sure which one it might be... Not in a position to check on most of them.

    I just checked. The stores within 100 miles of me do not have them available. I love it when they have one item at one store, and advertize it just to suck you in. I hate Fry's for this reason.

    And thanks biodoc for the kudos. Here is my farm. The 2 boxes at the bottom total about 100k ppd, but they put out a LOT of heat compared to the one doing 100k. Too warm here now for them. Maybe if a blizzard hits....

    THE-LAWNoob has produced points and has been added to the stats. That has made me look at this thread and do a prognosis of the folding in the days to come and I have thus built the following teams:

    [​IMG]

    This year I have the feeling that the Firecats have more folding power. Let's see if that holds true ...

    If my prognosis holds true,
    the TeAm should produce at least 64 million points during December,
    the racers should produce approx. 45 - 46 million points (more than the whole team in the preceding months ...).

    Please fold on, more, More, MOre, MORe, MORE points need to be folded! :)

    It's funny, this year I am down 9 cores (amd 965 - 5 cores - and an amd 455 - 4 cores), and down a gt440, and I am going to pass last year's total.
    One of my gts450's is in a machine I built for my parents and they constantly forget to turn folding back on when it gets slow on them and they pause it.
    Those beta gpu units sure are making a difference.

    Merry Christmas to all. The jul tomten paid a visit already this evening and Santa just arranged everything.

    Peter, they still show the silly Kalle Anka episode on tv Christmas Eve?

    Yes they do. This is one of the deepest "new" traditions (started 1962).

    I have also a lot fewer cores and GPUs this year, but will probably (if nothing breakes down) produce more points this year. :)

    Stats as of December 26, 2012:

    [​IMG]

    Not too bad, however less than the days before. Now we have only five more days of the race: let us put on a Grand Finale!

    Here are the individual production stats: Please remember, the number of points depends also how long you have been racing!

    Thanks for the stats, Peter! :)

    Which numbers should we be looking at for the race totals? Upper right?

    Or are we just including post primegrid race numbers?

    Looks quite close though, right?

    Well, at several places:

    for the total totals (including the PG-race): upper right,
    for the day by day numbers: right table,
    for the team numbers: the (upper and lower) tables,
    for the difference between the teams: between the upper and lower table to the left.

    I'll try to do the tables more readable.
