    I wish! nothing that dramatic.. but it might be enough to be up there with him. My new PPD will be enough at the high end to contend

    Re: Watch out Sick Willie

    well my new toy is on the way, but its not going to show up until mid week next week, so I'll just spill the beans now. I'm adding a i7-970 dedicated rig to the farm. It should overclock ok in the UD3R board and the current owner says he was getting approx 100k PPD on a 6903 unit. So it'll be getting the full ubuntu treatment I gave my SR-2 and a shiney new -bigbeta flag I figure my new theoretical max ppd will be somewhere in the 350-380k region with 6903/4 units, but only 250k or so on 6900's, hence why I expect to be trading blows with Willie instead of outright maintaining a lead

    the price was also VERY nice... funny how that worked, a price too good to pass followed by a 970 mysteriously being shipped to me

    And, then, I might delve into some more esoteric endeavors. Or not. Right now, the average temperature in Lubbock has been hovering at or above 100 degrees for over a month and my electric bill is enormous. But, I really don't like numbers (as a place) other than 1.

    We'll see if the temperature breaks and I can generate some interest. Did I ever mention that not all my machines are online and folding.... In fact, I've decreased folders dramatically while maintaining (or increasing) PPD. Haven't even done any real optimization of current resources.

    Nice stats, btw. And if you are ahead for a little while, enjoy it.

    Re: Watch out Sick Willie

    LOL. I have actually strongly considered shutting my entire farm off until it's cooler, but I do like seeing my name at the top of the list.

    Between the temperature and the less than 3/4" rain for all of 2011, it is friggin' unbearable this year.

    But, I do have deep pockets and more silicon, so we'll see. Becoming #1 and staying #1 for an extended period of time are not synonymous. Just sayin'.

    Sorry to throw a "spanner in the works" guy's,
    I love a good race, I really do....
    But this is disturbing for Bigadv folders:

    I'd say quite disturbing...50% bonus down to 20 % bonus

    I wonder what made them decide to make such a drastic change

    This may well help me decide what to do taking the heat factor into consideration.

    I'm not surprised really.. the points are pretty much off the scale right now for bigadv with people getting almost 1mil ppd on single machines. disappointing, but not unexpected :\

    In my opinion the reaction to the latest "Big Bigadv" Wu's which were released from closed beta way too early, and well before any real thought was given to the possible impact on Bigadv as a whole,
    The usual "forum trolls and whiners" came out of the woodwork to make matters worse......
    I've been giving them both barrel's over their inept and clumsy "knee jerk reaction" there all day, it won't make any difference now, but hopefully they'll be a little more careful with such changes in the future,
    Maybe a little mute now,
    but nice production there lately guys...

    the 6903/4 units really brought it to a head. my SR-2 went from 150k on 6900's to 250k on 6903's. basically, the new units are going to come out to levels they should have been before the re-alignment, at the cost of points for all the other projects. IMO they should have just adjusted the new units and left the old ones alone, OR implemented a QRB on the GPU clients before touching the bigadv bonus. I understand that people were upset about the fact that GPU's had been basically marginalized by bigadv, and I understand stanford wanting to keep the masses involved by not cheapening the contributions of people who can't do the heavy-hitting rigs like mine. That said, I think theres a lot of confusion and a big lack of communication as to how this data is being used. If bigadv really is that much more important to them, they should have left it alone and given a healthy boost to GPU's to make others feel better.
