Don't exactly have it here

That's too bad, it my favorite holiday. Get to hang out with family & friends, eat a bunch of really good food and you don't have the commercialization like we get around Christmas.


No mention of football? I thought that was what the holiday was really about ;)

Fixed now. Thanks for the clarification.

Does anyone see a way to make more teams here? With Ronin & Borg's big numbers it gunna be hard i think to have more than 2 teams, as it stands now.

Just because i started this thread doesn't mean i know what i'm doing :p
Feel free to help me out here.

Well, one method is to "penalize" individual users, and can therefore get more teams.

Example, 90% penalty on Ronin would mean 600/day would only count as 60/day, and 95% penalty on amdxborg would mean 45.95/day instead of 919/day.

Another possibility is to give bonus, or a fixed penalty/bonus instead of %-penalty/bonus.

Rules:
- OK everyone, the race starts on October 10th (Canadian Thanksgiving) & runs to November 24th (US Thanksgiving). I suppose going by UTC time would be easiest.

- Dump your caches before the race starts!!! No pre-race caching!!!

Anything else???
Some one come up with a witty name for the race.


Teams...
will have to re-organize them & may end up using Rattledagger's idea of a percentage for Ronin & Borg. Unless every one OK with only 2 teams. I could use some input here.


Chech your numbers in my OP to make sure i have them correct too please.

My comps are down for a few days but will be back on in time for the races.

Cleaning, reapplying artic 5 etc...cleaning non essiential apps :p

edit oh yeah, moving them around, adding a few cat5 wires so I have room for the new comps ... maybe if I canm get them built in time.

Looks good Spacehead!

Two teams are fine. With the two heavy producers there is not much else you can do.

Classic until the end.

I don't mind being penelized, not sure why Ronin get 90% and i get 95%.. Why not just let a tenth of our production count. Or 2 teams is just fine with me also! :D

Was just an example how only counting a fraction of someones production could lead to more teams, and pointing out can use different fraction for different users. It's really just as easily example put amdxborg on one team and ronin on another with +319 wu/day, and the rest of the users split into 3 teams getting roughly 600+ or 3x bonus... :p


When again, it's really no problem with having only 2 teams also, it's even possible to move 2 users from team1 and one user from team2, so both production and team-size is the same. :)


As for start, don't remember when Soni normally pulls the MTR-stats, if it's 02 or 03 local time, meaning 00 or 01 GMT at start of race and 01 or 02 GMT at end of race due to summer-time ending. ;)

When again, there's also a possibility the MTR ends a little sooner... :evil:
