I'm almost there but you are rapidly catching me http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif! We should both be in it by tomorrow... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Also, Ees, is there any way to keep my stats when I change my alias? I've just went from 'pace3000' to 'Pace3000' and I've lost my history - I'm not all that bothered but I just wondered if it was possible.

nitRAM had uploaded 2 units in the last week - not much but we need every unit!

And did someone say tight? I'm about 4 hours away from uploading 2 units...and the other 2 units could arrive anytime (I've got 4 machine's crunching)



100) John Col: 453
101) Pace3000: 451
104) Sisyfos : 448

And I think I've lost the battle - I'm going away from my computer for a few hours - and when I get back I expect to see Sisyfos in the top 100 - I'll wait another day...

Though how's about a race to the top 50? I think I'll be able to up my output in the next couple of months to stay competitive http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Pace,

The top 50 is tough. It really slows down around 57 or so. I've been trying to reach the top 50 for a while now and it is soooo slooooowwwww! I'm currently at 53/54ish battling it out with Rimfaxe. I have the machines to stay a head of him but I have to take them off the network once in a while. Hopefully I can get them back on soon.

Well I'm back and I've got 3 units to upload - but I can't! And the stats haven't been uploaded in the last 3 hours! Anyone for an anti-climax?

As for the top 50 Dave, if I do get there I'll be on my way to the top! I'm working on convincing a friendly Unix admin at a local Uni to run Seti (for me) - mmmm - a few hundred machines! He's not that keen on running Seti as such - but it might be even harder to get him running for me - he's a big Linux/Slashdot fan so he might want to join them - I can only hope!

The members of my team are from the (legendary http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif) LAN games I host - I've got about a dozen members with 2 of them currently running it (a 166 Linux box and a P3-450 GUI W98) rather rarely - if I can get some of the P2 owners (3 brothers each with a 350) then I'd be able to maybe mount a challenge on the top 50 - else it'll be 60ish I'll hit probs.

If you win this I'll never speak to you again.

Anyway, may the best man win (that's me).
I want to win damn it. If I don't I'll be soooooo mad, and you don't want that.

I think so Kim but I thought I'd say anyway - I've been trying to do it for the last week - thought I'd let you know before I, er, lose the battle!

Well I've just uploaded last nights units:

100: EliSoft - 455
102: Pace3000 - 451
105: Sisyfos - 445

I've got a 120 and a 133 which should finish a unit later today! My P3 will churn out 2 and my P2 is 5-6 hours away from finishing it's current one! Though I fear that those 5 WUs might not be quick enough - and also EliSoft might decide to upload something - DOH! Anyone want to donate a WU to <a href="http://homepage.ntlworld.com/paul.mccarroll/hosted/seti/files/user_info.sah">seti@pace3000.freeserve.co.uk</a> http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif?

This is getting too damned close.
Pace3000 and Sisyfos battling it out in the race of the millennium.
Don't you think we should charge some dough on this one? Surely we could get rich.

Sorry to have nitRAM leaving, but it sure adds to suspense.

BTW, he wasn't producing, but one of the originals I think.

Don't suppose you's want to know the story behind my victory over this little... worthless POS?

For those that do read on. For the POS that don't stop reading http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Frantic uploading of units leaves me within 3 units of success - then disaster - a callout to a customer leaves my computers with no way to upload 2 almost finished units and another 2 at about 50% on the Pentiums.

Anyway arrive back to see Sisyfos in top 100 - but no! He's still behind a couple of units...aarrgghh - the stats haven't been updated so I refresh....DOH! Must be a Seti problem so I backup my P2s cache and upload it's finished unit...error! So after reading Kim's (Sisyfos) post I keep trying and notice that the stats get updated with my WU (even though I got an error) - so I start uploading the P133 and the P3s units - check the stats - only received one credit! Smash nearest phone. And mouse. And comma key of keyboard. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Calm down...

Quickly get the P120s now 70% complete unit onto the P3 (overclocked to 5x112 for the day http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif) and rush it finished. An hour or so later it's done and up! Something about Woohoo! and you know the rest http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif
