Hm, last seen two weeks ago. :?

Sometimes he goes on long business trips, I think.

Sorry, I forgot to post the stats here. Thanks for taking care of it crashtech! :D

It looks like some of their guys are searching for primes instead of running FAH. I'm convinced there's no good time to run this race. :roll:

Well, I'm probably the only one that wants them here so I can comment on them. Happy to keep doing so with your blessing.
Looks like the TeAm might in the future need to look elsewhere for a worthy adversary in F@H...?

Don't know that we will find one. Have to stick with the inter-team December race, till one comes along.

Sure crashtech, you can keep posting the stats here. [H] is picking up new folders but not nearly enough .I guess Maybe Tom's + H vs TAAT would be an option but not a good one I think.

Day 2, stats courtesy of biodoc:

Kinda wondering if I should go ahead and pull my CPUs off of F@H. I went all out at first because it was not clear that we'd have an advantage...

Yeah that's fine. I only signed up so that if we were getting beat and I joined late it wouldn't be an issue. 8-)

Yeah, guess not! [H] is still ahead in FB, though. Curious to know what the strategy is there...?

Been having some problems with some of my machines becoming unreachable, but it doesn't really seem to matter that much.
[H] is probably just using this contest as a means to kick TAAT's ass in other GPU projects like GPUGrid.

I think some of the [H] GPU guys are on PrimeGrid (Tour de Primes).

Hate to say it, but this race has been another disappointment. The last time we had a fun one I think it was against Brony@Home...

Lots of work basically, therefore I took a bit of time off of the DC hobby. Resuming it now. :-)

I see the TeAm did well in this Folding sprint. I haven't been reading the TeAm forums (and none of the other DC sites), otherwise I would have joined of course.

So nice and rather a relief to see you back, Stefan. I hope that your lots of work has proven rewarding rather than irritating!
