    Yes, I did just steal the content from the 2016 OP.

    Anyway, I'll kick this off. I'm into the top 350 and should pass 5 million points today.

    EDIT: 5 million points passed.

    CPC & bit-tech has a new top 3 producer! ;)

    (even with a machine which usually produces ~1M PPD offline at the moment due to a PSU failure)

    Very well done! I notice the weather in NI was something in the order of 15 degrees warmer one day vs the next. Did you leave a window open that day :)

    Haha, funny you should mention that. The room that most of my farm is hosted in was at 24 Celsius one day last week, and the machines were struggling with it so badly that I had to kick the AC on at full power to bring it back down well below 20. They don't like this mild weather we're having, and at this time of year it's normally enough to ventilate the room with outside air to keep everything cool enough. Not so this year!

    Thanks guys! I'm attempting to reach 5M PPD and maintain that for as long as possible. :D

    Well, basically just along the lines of what hardware I can buy. I'm thinking one of the new low profile 1050 or 1050Ti's would go nicely in my 2U server.

    I'm just about holding onto 3rd in the producers chart. I do still have 1M points offline due to hardware failures and lack of time to go and replace cards and PSUs. That being said, I have managed to continue climbing the leader board; I'm now 15th in the team and have hit 500M points. Hoping to get everything back up and running within the next week or two, which should see me hit the 5M PPD mark and put me on course to hit the team's top 10 in just over a month.

    Nice work, seeing this thread and your sigs made me want to check mine, been quite a while pity I can't seem to see how many points a day etc I was making way back then.

    What's your current setup? :)

    I wouldn't mind getting something going again.

    Congrats.
    (The cost of leccy is an issue for Folding Farms - well, it is for those of us who pay the bills ...)

    Just hit the 4 million point mark and ranked 390 for the team. Not as impressive as many of the guys on here but only had 2 Million points at the start of the year before picking up a new GPU. Would like to hit 39million-40million mark to make the top 100 but donno if I could make the sustained push.
