CharlieChan is due to overtake tragus in two days, and Zhentar in 45 days, but has ARM Systems, mas92264, wgragg, and myself on his threats list.

bkh should overtake Lockheed in 11 days, becoming our #2 folder.

mas92264 is in the same boat as CharlieChan, with three conquests in the next 30 days or so (tragus, CharlieChan, Zhentar), but also two threats (ARM Systems and wgragg). I am also on his threats list, but not for a few months.

ColdFlame is quietly climbing the ranks. Now up to 34, he could rise another 7 spots in the next three weeks.

CoolGav is another stready climber, just two spots down from ColdFlame, but rising a bit quicker. CoolGav and ColdFlame should be #27 and #28 in 3 weeks.

dasman is on the fast track. Now at #45, #39 is just 4 days out, and a Top 30 ranking could come within a month.

D_Bailey, who is back at #89, is definitely looking like SPCR's next phenom. He's not rising through the ranks quite as fast as ARM Systems did, but close. I predict Top 50 within 2 weeks! As fast as dasman is climbing, D_Bailey is climbing even faster.

Race to the Top 50:
sthayashi is not climbing quite as fast as D_Bailey, but could also be Top 50 within about 3 weeks.

captain_android is also Top 50 bound in about 3 weeks. Who will get there first? sthayashi or captain_android?

The race to the Top 100 is looking interesting. At the moment it's a 5-way battle to see who can get there first, and stay there before getting bumped back out. All should be in the Top 100 within about a week due to the bottom 7 places of the top-100 being populated by (apparently) inactive folders.
BMW - 1 day
Mikael_Strand - 3 days (this will be a short visit)
Kemokim - 4 days
aston - 4 days

wow, never been called a phenom before. I've been called a fast talker....get that all the time. fast talk a couple of my friends to fold for me, fast talk the IT Director to run F@H as a service on some work machines...

but never a phenom. I think I'm honored.

Just swapped a 2000+ Palomino with 2200+ Thorton, then dropped a wire in the socket to fix the vcore at 1.8v and o/ced the #*@()*# out of this sucker (stock speed 1.8 Ghz at 1.6v). Currently running at 2.36 Ghz (174 Mhz bus) and folding almost as quick as my 2.4 Barton. Ph33r m3! :twisted:

To think that only 1 short week ago, I was orange. Now, my production has inched up and I'm back to green again.

Time to find another log to throw on the fire -- just don't know if I have any left :cry:

Way to fold guys!! Image

EDIT: funny how the site changes the word the color of the word orange to green -- I thought I had messed up, but it's the ad that did it :wink:

Hang on !! It's less than that... I forgot to factor in leap years,... calculates... guess that makes it 19.249Yrs 8)

Kinda puts his contribution in perspective, doesn't it Petey?

It'll be over 3 months before I accumulate enough points to pass him, and that's at over 1K per day! :shock:

I guess your saying 'It makes you realise how much he contributed'?

Cheers Lockheed 8) 8) 8)

Anyway 19.249yrs isn't that long :roll:

Will pass him before I'm 60yrs old :roll: (With nearly six months to spare :wink: )

I think the HSF that I have is called Zalman 6500 (flower type, all copper, heavy sucker). I have fan at almost the lowest setting and I house this thing in a pretty lousy case (GMC X-21, 2x80mm ICE fans in the back). I'm getting different temp readouts from the case's temp sensor (50-55) and motherboard (40-45). I'm inclined to believe the case's sensor. Still, 55 is withing my range and it does not seem to lock up or anything.

Mikael Strand made it to 100, only to get booted out again by BMW, but it looks like he will be back for another cup of coffee before getting booted out again, this time by aston and Kemokim. Actually, he might just get past FRODO before Kemokim catches him, and stay in the top 100.

durruti breaks onto the charts at 252.

nsparadox is well on his way to page 2, as are SamWilliams. Ugly_Dog, and quietdragon. That's great, as page 2 is starting to look kind of empty.

Anonymous broke into the top 200 today. Michael_qrt is making a move, up 5 spots today and 17 for the week.

Looking through "page 2" (EOC Stats page), there are a LOT of people contributing significant points. 34 have contributed at least 100 points this week, and 4 others have finished big ol' nasty 71 point Tinkers this week.

Guess I'll go catch up on the new members.

Looks like Mikael Strand is the *new* Pete Amer, for the time being.

Don't worry Pete Amer, your still *special* to the team. I'm off to find some more sheep, goats and whatever other farm animals Pete needs :wink:

I've accepted the fact that D_Bailey will pass me but I have 2 more threats on my list, you, sthayashi, and BMWBMW. :?

I'm glad to see that we have added a lot of production to the team, but I'm still getting adjusted to the fact that I am now one of the hunted :shock:

Hopefully, this is just the beginning and there will be more folders that move quickly past me. :evil:

Sometimes something will just "tickle me" as my parents generation would say, and this definitely did. Laughed so hard I needed a tissue. :sniff sniff: :lol:

Welcome to the club. :? My first thought when I got my first potential threat was, Gotta find more computers to borg!!

It's taken a while, but I think I'm over it. Go ahead and pass me, Kemokim... I don't care. Hmph.

"Ice T as well as many actors from hip hop need to work on they're three dimensions of character. To Ice T's credit though he's good at geting the bad guys!"

I haven't seen that movie, but I did find the review amusing.

No, but we do have cars (well, trucks mostly), and I flew on me an airplane once.

I used to spend a week or two on South Padre Island each fall, and have also sailed the coast near Portland, where Great White's are rumoured to hang out. Dunno about that. I think that was just a story told by one of the "locals" to scare the kid from Kansas, but it was on my mind every time I went into the water. :lol:

Its one of those bad "Let's go hunt humans because they are the ultimate prey and they will really test my superior hunting skills" movies. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, even if they were drunk and stupid.

Coincidentally, I'll be in South Padre Island for a few days next week. Never been before there before.

I used to believe every story I was told as a kid. I felt really stupid when I got older :oops: or maybe that was the short bus I took to school. :wink:

Somehow, I've managed to stave off CharlieChan's overtake by a day (or at least a few more hours). Alas, I'll be bumped from the top 10 by the thundering phalanx in a little over two weeks. Curiously, Lockheed and Zhentar are now in my conquests, at the exact same time (274 days hence). It's been fun.

Quick, take a snapshot of that page for posterity! :lol:

CharlieChan - imminent
mas92264 - 5 days
ARM_Systems - 12 days
wgragg - 17 days

It's interesting and fun to have so much activity within the ranks. Perhaps less fun if you are the overtakee!

Sorry tragus :twisted: but I gotta get past you and Charlie before ARM and wgragg roll me flat. :cry:

David's another issue, but, at least I've got a couple of months to deal with him. Let's see, I've got an empty box and new mobo at the office, must have some memory somewhere. Wait! Here's a 2600 Barton! Hey, anyone know how to make a computer out of this stuff? :)

I've been trying to catch up with Semm again and not to give up to CoolGav but it seems it is all in vain. Plus there is Dasman lurking behing. Oh well!

I have however discovered a post on Arstechnica forums about dual Xeons 2.66 running at 3.4 Ghz. This is what I'm thinking of. Not likely to get it though.

Woohoo! I've just broken into the project top 100000. Page 2 status within SPCR also beckons this week. :D

Looks like Ugly_Dog and I could have a long fight on our hands; our production is absolutely identical this week. MORE COAL!

Well, CharlieChan overtook my spot at #6 and mas92264 will soon (1-2 days) take my current #7 spot. Within a couple of weeks, ARM and wgragg will leave me behind. A week later, David_Hays will put me out of the top 10. Whew! I'll be semi-secure at #11 for quite some time, though.

As a side-note: Yay me, passing the 90,000 milestone. I'm still in the top 15 producers.

I'm noticing a number of new folders joining the SPCR team. Welcome and quiet huzzahs to you all. May you soon join the thundering herd passing me as well.

I hope to get past ColdFlame before being taken myself for the third time. I expect it will take a bit of a struggle, and hopefully coincide with Michael Schumacher being overtaken in the Bahrain Grand Prix on 4-4-04. To do this I haven't sold off my K7SEM, (with my Duron 1.6 its doing fine with just a 5v 92mm Panaflo exhaust and a duct over the Zalman flower). The exhausted air is surprisingly cool and its a really quiet system. Perhpas I'll write up some stuff with pics to show my homemade box...
