Day Fourteen - The Close Of the Second Week

Den-Fi May as well take off by this point and just fly with the clouds and we got a man down at rank 14 with DirectingGnu2 producing no points over the last 24 hours   Continuing his stranglehold on the throne we have Den-Fi, with 681.28 million point he may as well be worshipped as a god among the men of TeamLTT, producing over 82 million points on this day alone it seems that he may still have a little juice left in those tanks. rodarkone continues in second place with 478.05 million

Day Twelve - The New Gatekeeper

Well the best viewing of the update can be seen right at number ten where LAR_Systems has finally beaten down the gatehouse and is not presiding at the rear of the pack.    In first place we have Den-Fi, who has passed the half billion mark with 521.81 million points. He has certainly shown us what he's got and I have to say, I'm impressed. rodarkone has manage to stay in second place with 405.45 million points, but there is certainly a challenge to come from Macaw2000, despite the fac

Day eleven - Macaw Rising

We can see that Macaw has certainly been pulling out all the stops, but it is still far behind that of Den-Fi. Will he rise to the challenge or simply settle for second place; Only time will tell.    I'm not going to be able to write a blog post, just spent the last hour staring blankly at the spreadsheet, yay, well done me for messing up my mediation!   https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oLY2Sm9VbYYH2jOEKvYyvxoxHm9HeL7RAFNifIsQb3Y/edit?usp=sharing   Please rem

Day Ten - Folding Anonymous...

Den-Fi... Macaw... you uh... feeling alright.... so with Den-Fi and Macaw seeming like they need Folding Anonymous Sponsors rodarkone is looking like they are going to get left behind. There has been little movement in the ranks when it comes to the top 20 or so.   Den-Fi looks to be solidifying his place on the throne with 372.77 million points, rodarkone is still performing admirably in second place with 338.47, but Mac2k is certainly going to be posing him a challenge if today was a

Day Nine - The Den-Fi strikes Back

Well today has been a busy day for me, but I never thought I would be returning to seeing multiple people week over the 40m PPD barrier, fair play gents you have earned my, and probably many others admiration.    In first we have the nonbenevolent king on throne, with 310.57 million points he has certainly made himself the front-runner, redarkone has fallen to second, with 302.52 million points he will likely struggle to retake the throne unless he's willing to stick his hand into his

Day eight - Macaw Flies

so just a quick explanation, I got word today that my funding meeting got moved to this morning, meeting at their office, so I'm just going to need to get to sleep asap so here are the ranks and wish me luck. This is mostly a formality and we are highly likely to receive it, but it ain't a sure thing until the paperwork is signed and the first payment hits the charities bank.    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YHkd34kt79qFgOOj1gZt46OquzNe5lcAw2bR-U576_0/edit?usp=sharing

Day Seven - The Close Of The First Week

First off, can I just say how disappointed I am in you all, there has been an issue with the event percentage for the whole first week and no one even noticed, was a stupid error on my part that has now been corrected, but still, seriously guys! It was an unfortunate case of the named range being used for the totals being referencing the wrong call. If I can find the time I will retroactively correct the previous days. Now, onto something a little more personal, I may not be around for most of t

Day Six - We Have Our First 200m

Day six has come and gone, rodarkone has surpassed 200m points for the event, but Den-Fi ain't too far behind, DirectingGnu2 looks like he could be making a push and Macaw2000 is certainly looking likes he's finally in the game.    rodarkone continues his benevolent reign sitting on the throne with 201.87 million points, The fallen king Den-Fi continues his form in second place but falling ever so slightly behind with 199.40 million points, I still don't trust the guy when he says he's

Day Five - LAR_Systems Down

As the first week is coming into it's final days, we are certainly seeing how the ranks are starting to play out, but don't fear, because there are many more days to go for us to see a mix up of the ranks.    In first place we still have rodarkone sitting on the throne with 167.55 million points, but he certainly has no right to feel comfortable, Mr Den-Fi in second place, who is known to be slightly economical with the truth is certainly still in the realm of dangers.

Day Four - Oh So Close

Well here we are, and I really am just blown away with this rodarkone and Den-Fi thing that we got going on, he tried so hard, and he got damn close this update, but yet, he was 40k shy of the mark, you'll get him next time.... Maybe.   In first place we have rodarkone, who right now with 133.95 million points, has had his lead slashed to only around 40k points. He should certainly be looking at fiddling with the knobs and dials if he is wanted to maintain his lead into the next update

Day Three - Two billion

So far for the event we have seen over two billion points have been produced, that is not bad. I have noticed that the top 10 percentage has fallen from 33% on day one to 27% now, is this a trend that will hold for the duration, as people battle it out on the lower ranks to best each other, or will the rivalry that is brewing at the highest echelons be too much.    We see that rodarkone has maintained first place with 101.4 million points, but Den-Fi is hot on his heals with 100.64 mil

Day Two - The Den-Fi Menace

Day two is over, the numbers have been tabulated and validated and I'm noticing some interesting activity from the Den-Fi camp, is he being honest, is he all out, or is he playing his Graphics cards close to his chest, only time will tell.    I'm sorry for not posting more details, I've suddenly been overcome with sickness, I may get around to adding more details if I feel better in the morning     https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VXg6skZBhaQWYNnrzIBgME7aPspV1qGU9

Day One - And They're Off

Ladles and gentlespoons, We come together today to celebrate Wait, wrong speech.   Here we are again for another year, I'm really looking forward to see what we can do between CUDA and the new 30 series cards for the few that have them. It will also be nice to se some tier two event badges knocking around the forum. I am so happy to see the regulars, and even more happy to see some new names in the list!   In First place we have rodarkone with 34.47 million points, an impress

Prelude III

With only one week remaining for people to sign up we are seeing our sign up numbers are growing slowly.    we are finally getting to see what the team is going to look like this year with some of our heavy hitters here, and some others devoid from the forum completely. It is going to be interesting to see what impact the recent launch of Nvidias 30 series GPUs will have, are we going to see new heavy hitters, or are our heavy hitters splashing the cash to hold onto their lead.

LTT Forum Tech Stack

The LTT forum is built on Invision Community (previously known as IPS and IPB), an off-the-shelf forum software. The majority of the code that powers the forum is theirs, and the technologies that we can use are largely constrained by what Invision Community supports.   The backend is written entirely in PHP, using a custom framework built specially for Invision Community. Some type annotations have been introduced into the codebase recently, but most of the code was written before PHP

Prelude II

So then, whats this, another blog post?   Well things are continuing to go, at a snails pace but we are slowly getting some more people onboard! We now find ourselves with just shy of 300 people signed up for the event so far, so it is looking like we are going to have one of our smallest folding folding months yet at this rate!    There's not really much to add other than we really need some shout outs, so if you want to help out guys why don't you hit up some LMG peeps and

Well guys, another year another Folding month!   It is my pleasure to once again, for the third year, to welcome all to the official folding month of 2020! No matter your experience level, hardware reserves, or willingness to financially back your secret mercenaries, you are all welcome!   So far it has to be said that we are a little thin on the ground, with only 152 sign ups, but with a month yet to go before the event commences there is still time for everyone to share the

Future | What Component to Upgrade When And Why

Hey there,   I know, I just got my new computer, and it's great (almost too powerful lol).   But I have been thinking about upgrades I could possibly do in a couple of years, because I like planning. I know some things may change and maybe Intel will suddenly be better or something, but looking at the naming scheming, I have an idea of what to look for. Yes, I am aware of new releases making some stuff obsolete, but last-gen stuff is fine for me and cheap. I am guessing
