    Just passed the billion mark, although EOC will have to wait until 3pm to reflect this...

    @Shirty. Very impressive - I think that is the fastest anyone in the Custom PC & bit-tech team has produced 1 billion points :thumb:

    Thanks Doc, it's been a fun (if brief) journey to this point, and I've learned a fair bit along the way.

    I'll be continuing at this rate for another 4-6 weeks before dialing back to a slightly more modest, utility bill-friendly output - though still hopefully competitive!

    Nothing wrong with that.
    Given a month or so and you'll be on the teams top 100 list.

    That is simply spectacular. Well done indeed, I feel like we should throw a party or something!

    It took me many, many months to get to 15 million points before I gave up early in the decade. Right now I knock that out in less than 36 hours :hehe:

    When I started in 2005, it took me over 3.3 years to get 15 million points !! - now I can generate that number of points in <2 days.

    I'd imagine Moore's Law has something to do with it, but I'm not clever enough to know what.
