Hello Fellow SETIzens,

A long time coming: we hit 13,000,000 and I am finally starting to pick up the pace.
Congratulations to all my fellow crunchers. Excelsior!!

Wow, just realized I busted through 100M on S@H.
Ahead of schedule thanks to the recent diet of APs.
5 years into this.

Congratz Jimbo! Not bad for only five years crunching.

Thanks!
If I could get 50 APs a day regularly, it would probably be closer to 100M/year.
The summer electric screw will soon hit here, and that 100% mark-up will cut me down to size.

Just made 10 Million. Working on a multi GPU rig for the fun of it, although I am not sure how to put all of that waste heat to use now that it is starting to get warmer out. Rich

Thanks all!
As far as chasing credit, we all do the work in hopes of a more tangible result and scientific advancement. But basic human psychology, especially the drive to compete, cannot be disregarded and is indeed a good thing. Else, who in their right mind would devote their time and resources to something with such low odds? Doesn't make the science impure ... And in the absence of a stick, the carrot grows in importance, imho :)
And it's not necessarily competition against others. I compete only against myself, in that it's the challenge of doing more with less, the optimization, the improvement on performance and the resulting learning that make the challenge fun.

My main host reaches > 200Mil RAC (200,266.64), a little more than 205MM (205,657,240) of total credits and is crunching about 2.5Mil WU per day.

Even with the big help of CreditScrew. It's nice especially because it's has only 1070 GPU's. and no OC.

I just wondering what it could do if i was able to change them for 1080Ti's or the new Volta's but for now I refuse to pay the today's insane prices of the Gpu's .

Thanks all who help me to make that possible.

Since you run Linux hosts, if you want some more fun you could try the latests Linux CUDA builds on your Titans. Sure you will be happy to see their crunching times compared with the SoG ones.

Huh, just noticed that I had recently crossed the 300 million total RAC milestone. Sweet! Keep on Crunchin'!

Funny how things sneak up on you (and then blow right on by you) when you're not paying attention... ;-)
