Ending The Year in The Top 100

Postby Pette Broad » Tue Dec 29, 2009 4:45 pm

Amazingly, we're still hanging on to our Top 100 place in 96th. The good news is that we are about to move up a couple of places and should keep our position for quite a while, maybe for another 12 months.

Some quick stats, 17 of us have passed the magic 1 million mark of which 14 are still active and I'm expecting a few more "millionares" in 2010. Next year will also see us pass the 100 mill mark total.

Lets keep up the good work in 2010. :)

Cheers,

Pete

I'll be adding a few more PC's as well in the first quarter :) 6-8 brand new 2.8 dual cores with a few dreg computers added on for good measure.

Congrats to all the new "million mark" folders! Keep those points coming.
I am a LONG way from that magic million mark.. just being under 200,000 points. Would add another folding system, but power costs are outrageous here.. at a bit over 17 cents per KWH!
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

When I added my PS3 a few days after black Friday there was a big jump in points for me. I only have 3 PCs with CPUs over 2 Ghz and the rest are 1.6 Ghz. I don't do a lot of gaming but I'll watch a few blue ray movies a week. Other than that the PS3 folds 24/7 and is the biggest points producer I have!

What's the PPD on a PS3? An NVidia 250 GTS gets around 6k per day, something a bit older say an 8800GS can get a respectable 2.5-3k.

I hit 48,479 total points in November. In December I hit 68,691. That's about a 6.5 K PPD increase. I did lose a PC for the last couple of days in December and the first few days of January so that number should be higher. I think I would have hit 70,000 if all had gone well. I estimate it would have been slightly over a 7 K PPD increase. Just a guess though.

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.

look for me to start coming back up. talked my wife into getting me a PS3 for my birthday at the end of the month so that will jump my points up some. I also got SMP working again and after some of the troubles i had with 4 singles going so that should start adding up.

so goodbye to the 600's as I should be into 700's in about a week!!!
