    Mark Williams has contributed TWO BILLION points to Folding@Home!!!!! Well done friend! Well done indeed! What's it been, eleven years to get to that massive milestone? Thank you for your efforts/contribution!!!

    I started in 2002, so 15 years. BUT It tool me about 13 years for the first billion (I posted here somewhere) and about 2 years for the next billion. I will see if I can find that old thread.

    OMG. I hit one billion on Apr 24, 2016 so less than a year for the second billion.

    Also up to number 46 in the world, and in the next day I pass someone else.

    Congrats to mike9o for producing 350,000,000 points in Folding@home! Well done friend!

    Condolences to mike9o for getting passed the next day by me. ;) :p :D

    And I've also crossed 300,000,000 in Milkyway, taking the number two spot for the TeAm.

    World Community Grid: On the same day, I have contributed 20 years of CPU power to the Zika project, and also have earned 5,000,000 BOINC points.

    I'm amazed that one can accumulate 20 years worth of single core CPU production, in less than 4 months. I wonder how many other projects track your CPU time totals?

    IIRC, one CPU day was at that time a Pentium running @ 300 MHz for 24 hours ... one core running today @ 3200 MHz produces 10 hours in one hour.
    If you have 4 cores, you may produce 40 days in 24 hours, one CPU-year takes approx. 10 days ... YMMV ...
    That does not take into account the different maths enhancements (SSE of different flavors and AVX), which increase production even more.

    Let's see... My 14 days OpenZika sprint landed me at 6 years 75 days (323.6 weeks) Total Run Time. My Xeon boxes (28 cores per box; E5 v4 @ 3.2 GHz) each contributed 37.3 % of the credits of this sprint. So the set of machines that I used in the sprint is equivalent to 75 Xeon cores. Hence, 75 cores x 2 real weeks = 150 total real weeks have been credited as ~320 weeks. IOW my Xeon cores happen to be 320/150 = 2.1 times as fast as WCG's current standard core.

    [edit] PS:
    Congrats TennesseeTony to 20 years runtime for OpenZika! After my exhausting and expensive WCG sprint, and seeing how credits trickle in during a somewhat more normal daily DC routine now, I guess I have a picture of the effort that led to this 20 years milestone.

    2 M points in Leiden Classical. That is a low points yielding project.
    It took me 24 days to produce slightly less than 250K points; in TN-Grid it took less than two days ...

    Just passed 20million in Milkyway@Home, searching for a top 10 spot. Should take 100million ppd to get that. Should be able to in 4-5 months.

    400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 in Folding@Home. Ah drats, you busted me, a few too many zero's: 400M it is. I may try to get some GPU Grid tasks now, until next December, or nothing at all (at least GPU related, except MW): The IRS gave me a present I can't refuse from way back in 2014, and the remodel is eating all my other $$$. :oops:

    @TennesseeTony And in Milkyway you are 16 million back from 1st place at TA and in the top 75 in the world. Congrats and it will be cool to see you in the top 10 worldwide, as you are 8th in RAC.
