While searching for some old pics, I stumbled upon those 2...

Both are from April 15th, 2009.

Judging by the first pic those are from '07.

If it was '09 I'd be on that list...

Indeed the first pic is from 2007. My bad. But it does represent one more particular aspect of ouf field: how far the hardware has come to perform 10-100 fold per user.

Yup if it continue that way folding points will be ridiculous.... in 3-4 years we will see threads like "HELP! My (insert cpu name here) only do 1000000 ppd!! what's wrong my my config?"

Wow, I love seeing old screenshots like that - takes members back to when things like this were started. I remember doing RC5 64 encryption contests back before 2000.. so i've been crunching blocks with various projects for years.
I just checked my stats.. and amazingly, I'll be folding with HWC for one year, next month!

Just lost 2 bigadv's in a row at 92% and 87% over the long weekend. Four days of wasted power.
Fired up prime95, no issues, 9 hours of memtest86+ gave me nothing. Saw some guys here using HCI memtest so I gave it a shot, I got 1 error after 5 hours of 8 instances...

Any better recommendations for stability testing? Also, has anybody used the paid version of HCI? I personally hate booting into Windows for testing.

Personally, if I was that close to stable on an OC I'd either bump the voltages up just a tad, or drop the OC down a couple of notches.

If its really random memory errors, just a thought - throw a 120mm fan over the ram. That happened to me with a 920 D0 that I had at at high overclocks.. threw a fan blowing on it = no more ram errors. Or what sswilson said. :)
