Thanks, I've had too many plates to spin lately and I forgot about the ball. ;)

Whoa. I'm at the head of the stats list for the TeAm in this challenge? That's a bit different. This time, I had 4x 6C/12T Ryzen 5 CPUs, rather than just three.

That's obviously because all of the "big guns" were away at Formula BOINC camp....

Edit: Looks like IceCold pulled away at the end, to tag the first spot for our team. Good thing, now my world-view isn't shattered anymore. :p That, and it kept the Scots from pulling ahead of us too.

A nice turnout. :) But we could have done better without that giant Yoyo in the way. :(

We really do appreciate you! Don't break any dishes just to do a stats update. ;) Especially on a Holiday weekend.

What is this one anyway, Labor Day? I entered a Labor Day photo contest some years ago, small group, but I won. :D


If the neighbors did not already know that I am nuttier than a squirrel turd, they discovered it on this day. :p

For what it's worth, your 4 6 core Ryzen CPU's are way more efficient , easier to manage, etc. than what I had to run to pull ahead, so you were 1st place as far as that goes. I have a stack of random old Haswell Dell PC's, etc. using a ton of power(along with a small amount of newer stuff) that I ran to try to keep us ahead of TSBT. Those 4 PC's you ran put out a lot of points!

That's amazing! Thank you for your impressive contribution! And pulling ahead of my Ryzens, with older tech, even. :)

Edit: I am still running 2x Ryzen R5 1600 "AE" (old-school) CPUs, which I intended to upgrade at least one of them to a Zen2 6C/12T 3600 CPU, but AMD (or their retailers???) increased the price from a fairly affordable $155 to $199, which was currently a no-go for me this month, after I dropped $100 on a GTX 1060 6GB from someone here for a friend, and then splurged just today, I think, on that 32" 1440P 144Hz Westinghouse FreeSync monitor. (See Hot Deals thread on it.) It was $240 + $5 ship. Seemed like a decent deal.
