Hi folks, I stopped folding for Bit-tech a while back after I'd reached my personal objective of a top 200 place. I naively thought that my first "love" (Hexus) were a more deserving cause, and started to try and rally their team a little. Well, 18 months later, I'm spending my entire weekend populating spreadsheets and deriving little known "facts" about user performance (well, compiling numbers and writing commentary) and we've still only got about 5 or 6 people who contribute, which has gotten a little soul destroying. For stats see: http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=69776 For discussion see: http://forums.hexus.net/distributed-computing/ During my time over there we took our monthly output from a couple of million up to a peak of 12.7million, which was mostly due to one user commandeering his works servers while they were not in production. However, since he has stopped folding, our numbers have dropped off, and, well, it seems, my enthusiasm and efforts are being somewhat wasted. Our userbase is back down to around 20 and the amount of coverage that the site gives to those who fold (or now folded) in the name of Hexus, has been minimal. Almost reluctant. Requests were made to include folding performance details as part of the reviews. Nothing came back, but unfulfilled "promises". All the information relating to folding performance, reviews etc, were hyperlinks to Bit-tech articles, or other forums. Likewise with the community, I have posted simple questions here, and received feedback, and active discussion on Folding and related matters. In Hexus, it can be days, sometimes even weeks before someone else posts a response. As for some of the comments from Hexites towards Bit-tech - I'm sorry but they've done nothing but lambaste the reviews and opinions of Bit-tech in a childish pedantic fashion. Some of it is constructive, and well placed, but some of the other "opinion" is just plain unfounded banter. I would urge Bit-tech/CPC to do better coverage of AMD's components, because some of the recommendations that have been made in the past seemed to have a very strong Intel bias, where things like "upgrade path" were somewhat biassed sounding - but that's another discussion. The final straw for me has been the Market place. Here on Bit-tech, I've seen a very active, thriving environment where I have had many positive experiences, and it was this which was the final nail in my Hexus folding coffin. I'm a one active forum member type of guy. As of yesterday, I have hung up my Hexus folding boots. I will compile my final spreadsheet for the November performance, and then I will do it no more. I may even do the "Folder of the year", but then I intend to focus my attentions and energy on Bit-techs team - after all, it was CPC that got me interested in folding in the first instance. Thank you for being a warm and more comfortable place, and I'm sorry for ever leaving. I therefore pledge my 1.5m+ points per month to Bit-tech/CPC. So long Hexus, and thanks for all the fish.
