You guys are always way ahead of me on the folding news heh. I was suprised just now to see my fav 1680's taking 1 hour longer to complete. Booo! That sucks. 7200ppd now while they were getting me ~8600ppd days ago. I want a rebate

I wonder if taking -advmethods off will help. I believe I was getting better ppd before even with those damn 511s in the mix.

I dunno might be worth a try. Would work if they only updated the one core downloaded via the flag.

On the 768 Point WUs right now I see ~8700PPD, so its a little better than the 1680 one.

I wish they'd stick to smaller WUs to cut down on the EUE pain felt when projects crap out. I'm folding stable and rarely get unstable machine errors these days but I have gotten one before and it really hurts when your 4 1/2 hours in and they decide to fail. Now with the changes these 1680 pointers take me near 6 hours sometimes and I'm dreading the thought of one failing mid work. I know they give partial credit for work but as we all have seen sometimes they just go so horribly bad no results can be sent in at all.

Ohh well I guess they know what they're doing but my EOC graph looks like a roller coaster these days and I swear I'm not gaming at all..well a tad perhaps. I sometimes sneak in a quick 15min HAWX mission.

I took -advmethods off and I'm still getting the same WUs so I guess the gravy bonus points are history. Sure was nice while it lasted.

BTW congrats to Dr BenD over for reaching 1 million points!
And kudos to LCB001 for reaching 4 million points!!!!

If ppl are so stupid as to put "any username you like" as their username then the majority would put a real username, "alex" "joe" "cooldude" whatever might seem like legit users but still stupid to install fah thinking it was needed for the crack.

I think they're gonna have to do more down the road, this penalty looks like something to quiet the masses (other teams) for a while. I think the whole team should go the way of Default and Google.
I've been looking into this whole team ftl thing......

Now while I have seen no comment from pandegroup , if you go and type in Team FTL on the stats page at stanford , it brings up the 'default' group.

Anyone confirm this ?

I wonder why they are still on the general stats list....

I noticed that even though they are getting more points than us each day, they always seem to be 1 week behind us too...

Awesome !!

I may have found a way to update one of my borgs to a 3850 video card for free......but we'll hafta wait and see.

----

Update on team FTL :

I got a response at the folding forums about this team.

Quote :

"Thanks for pointing this out. As of now we are standing by our decision to zero the team in its entirety. The fact that they are still getting points means that there must be a bug in our software that is designed to keep them from getting points. I will look into this immediately and try to resolve the problem. Thanks!
-Del"

So That's that...
