it's now only 34!
Yeah, I've noticed the numbers slowly declining. We had 80 or so active users when I first started and it took 5 years to drop to 70. Part of the problem is that you need half a dozen dual cores just to equal a single 250GTS, I can see why some have given up....
EDIT, Just looked through the active and inactive list. Found 4 or 5 who've dropped out in the last few weeks, some of them I'm sure will return. Looking at the teams list some of the teams who were Top 20 outfits a few years ago are now in the 80's, 90's or even outside the Top 100. A lot of new teams seem to be able to get 500k a day, impossible for long established smaller teams to compete with that.
