    You guys are funny.

    Reading through your threads is much like reading through the stuff over at my team, EVGA.
    Better get cranking pretty quick. We have one member who recently posted he is going to start folding the -bigadv WU's on 50 Mac octo cores.

    We recently passed 5 mil PPD again with no server folders this time. I wondered for a long while if we would make it this far, but our group seems ever more committed now than ever. Our goal is to pass default. What do you guys think?

    A team with an Nvidia manufacturer behind them. Oh wait, that's fair.

    "You know that stock of 9800 GX2s we couldn't sell? Might as well stick em folding then..."

    :p

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Ba#@*#ds!! lol :lol:

    End of the day you evga fellas suck monkeys and blow apes and happen to have 277 more active users than us! lol

    But yeah if we had the same about of people it would certainly make it a lot more interesting wouldn't you say? ;)

    All good fun though and it all helps towards the science, certainly no bad feelings besides a bit of friendly banter plus you never know what the future holds, IE all your GPU's could melt when I buy Nvidia after I win a multi-rollover lottery and release a driver that detects F@H team number 111065 and puts 12v direct into your GPU cores lmao :naughty: :p

    Happy folding all! :thumb:

    Vince, I don't wish to speak out of turn, but I don't think there is any animosity from these EVGA guys. There is a bit of friendly "sledging" going on here, that's all.

    It is all in good fun. The goal is the same regardless of the team. But part of the fun and the thing that keeps this interesting for those of us who have been folding a while, is the competition between teams.
    At some point we usually hop onto our competitors site to 'rile' them. It sometimes causes them to fold insanely to put us off. OCN fought tooth and nail, increasing their production 100% at one point. It was great fun.
    Keep up the great work. And fold on.

    Is it morally correct to fold for bit-tech with EVGA GPUs?

    Dilemma, guys!

    I just added a GTS 250 to my farm - an additional 5K PPD should appear in my stats late tonight or tomorrow morning :)

    I'm also going to update the rack farm thread today guys!

    No it's terribly improper. In fact, the last chap we found using a EVGA card was hung, drawn and quartered. His head was displayed as a warning to others, on a stake, outside the Tower of London! ;)
