I wonder if they are just having a hard time getting Bigadv units ready, or is it simply a case of folders not doing other units enough.
Naw, not disappointed - those 500-600k units we're good while they lasted. As "one of those guys" who has a folding farm full of SR2s and stuff.. as stated previously, something had to give. The bonus' were far too much imo, and it was only a matter of time before they had to drop their bonus value multiplier.
Now the question remains if it's worth folding bigadv on a 4 core/8 thread box, or just go regular SMP. I think that bigadv will probably be left to the big brusiers too, as they are the only ones to benefit from the short runs with good bonus points.
I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
