What is Your Time Worth?

Why I don't want to get another low-end retail job:   In a crisis like this where a person needs money, the easy choice is to get a job. But I am trying to figure out how to do something different.   It's no wonder I didn't want to go to college, when you compare the numbers of what I was making flipping PC parts per hour:   Working at McDonalds/retail/grocery: $9.45-$12 an hour.   Working on my business and flipping PCs return on invesment: minimum $22 an

Day Eleven - The Fall of Oppression

Legs Eleven anyone? It looks like the fall of the king may be on the horizon... How will he respond? Is the king to take up arms or abdicate his throne?   Today's drink, Comforting Old Fashioned   Currently counting his days on the throne we have The King @Den-Fi with 233.76 million points! He has been sitting comfortably for most of the event but @Macaw2000 has rallied the mercenaries of the cloud to help oust the king, taking the number two spot with 214.07 million points

Day Ten - Fun Times

Double digits, the closing days of the event are upon us, and before we know it it will all be over!   I may or may not be secretly looking forward to it.     Today's Drink, Martini   Sorry about the short post but as you can tell from the time that I'm posting this nothing has been easy. Mt plan to to get it nice and tidy but then something came up, dealt with that. Then something else came up, been dealing with that one. It's a hard juggling act to say the least, fun

Day Nine - The King Victorious?

Day Nine it is, and I feel like we all should just go home and leave Den-Fi to it by this point.    Today's drink, Godfather   Couldn't decide what to write today, the truth is there's been a big increase of cases in my town today and it's really shook me, a guy who lives not far from me passed away from the virus too. Just gotta keep our heads down and fold on I guess.    day Nine Stats   as always:   Please remember that this is a friendly ev

Day Eight - Issues

Here we are ladles and gentlespoons! The second week, the ranks are starting to look a lot clearer as time goes on!   PSA: Don't forget to troll PCMR on Twitter from time to time!   Today's Drink, Whisky Sour   Well there has been some serious issues with the stats over at EOC recently, hypothetically our stats should be mostly sound, minus the known issue on F@Hs part regarding some WUs not being credited, that is something that affects us all so shouldn't have a

Day Seven - It wouldn't Be LTT

It wouldn't be LTT without at least one completely messed up thing per event!   PSA The guys over at F@H forced a stats correction for those if us who haven't been issued points for WUs submitted so these numbers will seem higher than usual, but they are for the 24 hours period of 00:00BST-00:00BST as usual.    The Ranks are posted below.

Day Six - Reflection

Today we can see that TeamLTT have normalised our production, managing 4.2-4.4 billion points per day, that, my friends, is simply beautiful. The best part, it is only possibly because every one of us have turned our rigs on and get stuck in!   PSA, if you are running too hot you can always take off the side panel! Also there is an error with a limited number of users but this will be corrected by @leadeater when he is available    Today's drink, black coffee   I

The largest number in history:   https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/03/26/upshot/coronavirus-millions-unemployment-claims.html   For those of us who still have our jobs, the rest of us are stuck working remote, or have some form of paid sick leave. consider yourself the lucky ones, since you planned accordingly.    Of the individuals who filed for unemployment, vox has published a grap

Day One - In the beginning he said, let there be folds, and it was good.

And the first day of the event has officially taken off.    But first, a PSA, due to data corruption these stats run until 0300GMT, 28th of march, so the stats here reflect 27 hours of folding. As for the participation requirements, they will remain as is FOR NOW, but this is under review and after reviewing the first few days a decision will be made and announced on that days blog.

This is a very quick update just to let you all know where we are at.    There is no updated participant list as of yet.    Due to the rapid development of the situation in Britain of COVID-19 my household has taken the hard and complicated decision to isolate ourselves as much as possible. We are expecting this to last a minimum of 6 weeks, but it could very well be significantly longer.   All people who live here have some form of medical issue that puts us in a v

A breakdown of Saturday's outage

Timeline of the outage: (times in UTC) Starting at 02:03 on Saturday, requests started intermittently returning error 502, and many of the requests that were served successfully were significantly slower than normal At 05:59, most of the services on the server crashed. All subsequent requests were served by Cloudflare with error code 502 At about 11:00, I came online and attempted to diagnose the problem. Due to the previous failures I was unable to access the server, so al
