Sweet ass...I just logged into my account last night to see my own stats and damn I have moved up from the bottom nicely and I cant believe how short of time it took to break 15k compared to my old computer man I used to get an average RAC of like 28 now it's around 700 and on the way up...Crazy multiple core systems...

1% isn't bad for such a small team..next goal is what 5%

We are moving up fast now too, 1% is a good milestone, and at the rate we are going, I dont think 5% is even that far off! hopefully more members start Boincing so we can get there!

I PM almost all new members when I see them and ask them to join us in BOINCing. I'm sure most of them just think I'm nuts unless they read our thread.

The 1% comes from the Motorcycle Association of America saying Outlaw Bikers only make up 1% of motorcyclists. It was meant to be an insult but in biker fashion they turned it around and used it as a badge of honour. The bikers consider it the top 1% not the bottom 1%.

I am not an outlaw biker but do consider myself a biker (of sorts). I drive a V-Star. I've been driving motorcycles for 18 years and still have yet to get a full car license.

Back to the topic at hand though, welcome boogiehowser!

As some of you may know I've been trying to get a 2nd rig together for a while now to BOINC with it as well. Turns out I got a bad E8400 and killed my P35-DS4 trying to make it work. Well I have a P5Q-E coming next week and the E8400 will be sent out for RMA early next week so yet another couple of weeks and my output should double.

I'm really hoping we can crack the top 25 in RAC, we are at 29th right now.

Boinc on
