Ah I mis-read your post, I thought you said in the next few weeks, not for the next few weeks :oops:
January? Oh, it's the weird US date format ;), I'll see if I can remember how to switch accounts! Nope!....

[edit] I can't find Smoke's own account in Rosetta, I know he crunched under Team Enterprise, but I thought he had his own account there too?
And I don't see him in LHC, perhaps he never ran it?
How do I switch to him? lol

I’ll bet there have been lots of milestones in primegrid, Einstein, sidock, WCG, and NFS. Just a wild guess though :D

Including both the Holiday FAH Race and the BigADV FAH race I went from ~364 million total points on FAH to ~1.3 billion which is a jump from position ~75 on the team to 17. I will be quickly overrun by anybody behind me though since I'm probably done with FAH until next December.

I hit 30 billion at the start of the race on F@H! I anticipate keeping over 40 million ppd all year. And 550 million ppd or so to WCG.

I am now officially a billionaire in total/combined BOINC points! It sure took long enough! :p

And since I don't think I ever posted any of the other milestones in here, I'm going to do a bit of a "blast from the past" just for fun, and to highlight how things change over time...

It took more than TEN YEARS (from 2/2006 to 10/2016) to reach 100M.
Another three years (10/2016 to 12/2019) to reach 200M.
Nine months after that (to 9/2020) for 300M.
Three months more (to 12/2020) for 400M.
And just one week (also 12/2020) for 500M. This is when we were all going nuts with massive GPU instances to force ourselves into the Formula BOINC top 3 over TSBT. ;)
I got to 600M in 2/2021.
700M in 5/2021.
800M in 9/2021.
900M in 11/2021.
And finally 1000M on 2/1/2022, almost exactly 16 years to the day from when I first started running BOINC!

I have no intention of taking another 16 years for the next Billion! :D

Not sure the best place to post this, so I closed my eyes and threw a dart.

Well, looks like there are just a few of the regular folders still going now that the “races” are done. I had planned to reduce/shut down also but instead of shutting down, I have set a new goal and will keep Folding a while longer.

I managed to get into the top 100 Folders a while back, so now I want to get into the top 50. Unfortunately, the higher you get the further apart targets get so it is taking me months instead of days or weeks to make progress. And some of these folks don’t want to be caught. The old adage of moving the goal posts the closer you get is still true.

Maybe @Markfw will move up a notch or two and make room for me. :)

I was up to almost number 20 before curecoin came around. Then down to 40 or 50, now back up to 31. In 2 1/2 weeks I go to number 30.

Well, I just noticed that I have passed 1 000 000 000 points in Folding@Home; or to be more exact 1,003,399,917 points.
That made me really happy, more happy than I expected.
Pokey knows why I am thanking him: Thanks Pokey!

The next goal: 2 500 000 000 points - that should take less than a year ... I hope: if the hardware works that long ... and the electrical power does not get too expensiv ...

I passed 300,000,000 in Universe@home yesterday. I need to sit down and do the math whether or not it's possible to get to precisely 333,333,333.

333,333,333 / 666.67 = 499997.4995125024
499,997 * 666.67 = 333332999.99

So I think 333,332,999.99 might round up to 333,333,333 on the stats sites.

Right now I have 301,769,667 credits. Unfortunately, this is 47,345.26 * 666.67 off of 333,333,333.
301,769,667 + 47,345 * 666.67 = 333,333,158.15
301,769,667 + 47,346 * 666.67 = 333,333,824.82

333,333,333 happens to be 500,000 * 666⅔, but there were workunits with different credit in the past.

No one has credit with those fractions. Its either 1000, 333 or 667. Every 3 tasks is 2k even credit.

333,333,333 - 301,769,667 = 31,563,666

Chop all that off above 2k multiples leaves 1666. So no. You can get 333,333,667 or 333,333,000
