Day Twenty One - Captains Log, We Have Been At Warp For Three Weeks, But We Can See The Destination On Sensors

Good Morning Everyone! 

 

I've got something good for you today, we are three weeks into the event and things are as exciting as ever, we are going to get into the ranks but first... a message... from our Spenser hardware prize donator. Can we all give a massive thank you first, to the Brand who donated the prize. Sabrent! And also thank you to the LMG team who I promise have worked hard on this, I've been kept up to date really well and had prompt answers to my questions. But now, to the prize, we have 2x Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 4TB-G. So make sure you drop them an email or tweet to say thank you. I know that this prize may not be the Camino server we all wish it was, but it is yet just another little celebration for us to have as a team. It is nice to finally feel that the company (LMG) is "proud" of us as a community.

A little message written by me and signed off by my contact at the company. LMG continues to work with brands to support community efforts such as Folding Month, meaning even if there ends up being no more hardware prizes for this event the future looks bright for our events and prizes.

 

Now, with that gone it's time to have a look at these stats, but first, how's the team looking? The team had a slightly lower but still massive day today after producing 2,058,534,282 points. But after the end of week three of the event we can finally see the last 7 days reflected in the stats. For the week the team produced 15,098,559,519 points, which gives us a truly incredible daily average of 2,156,937,074 points. For the event as a whole, the team have produced 44,805,693,036 points. When looking at Work Units the numbers look also just as impressive. For the day we folded a total of 5,730 Work Units which means we are still getting those more juicy WUs, for the week that number goes up to 40,299 and finally for the event as a whole, over the last 3 weeks we have computed an incredible total of 120,261 Work Units. Honestly, I can't begin to thank you all for every single one of those Work Units. As for the daily breakdown, well things are looking pretty familiar I have to say. The top 10 managed to produce 39.15% of the teams' output today. For the top 50 that goes up to 69.87% and for the top 100 they managed to produce 85.96% of the teams' daily output. When we look at the points those percentages represent we see, 805,977,778 points, 1,438,198,302 points and 1,769,551,848 points respectively.

 

 

Now for the ranks, we are going to shoot through the top ten and get to something more spicy! We have an impressive total of 2,879,908,026 at the top of the ranks and there are no prizes for anyone guessing who it is. That's right it's Mxyzptlk! Truly the man to be crowned by the time the finishing bell rings. Shlouski is in second place with a rather distant 2,367,001,316 points. Even if he is quite far from first it is still an impressive total to say we have two whole weeks remaining in the event. Occupying the final spot on the podium we have miker07 who has had a bumper day total and looks like maybe he could keep that silver all to himself if he can keep that up. He takes the rank of third with 2,134,091,988 points. Justaphf may be the number one man on the team as a whole he certainly isn't the number one man on the team only managing to bag himself fourth place with 2,106,377,897 points. jakkuh_t, The LMG prodigal son himself is sitting in fifth place with 1,974,162,670 points.  Alex Atkin UK is in 6th place with 1,524,967,250 points. He certainly is cruising along nicely and can't seem to put a foot wrong with such consistent performance. Gorgon is a little ways behind Alex taking the 7th rank with 1,367,477,961, he is followed by yet another sizeable gap and then firedfly who takes the rank with 1,115,855,596 points. _Rlocke is behind the man ahead but he is faster... the only question is, is he fast enough? Either way, he takes the rank of 9th with 996,151,538 points and finally we have the post of the honourable gatekeeper. vsteel is once again filling the post with 730,165,604 points. 

 

Heats with Nvidia overtook two ranks (Including @TVwazhere) to take over 117th with 74,487,681 points. after producing over four million points I have to say I can see them climbing ever higher in the coming days. SpaceRazor, who is keeping all his laser-based top secret space razors to himself gain an impressive nine ranks to take over 134th with 57,904,963 points. WaffleMachine is up next, gaining 8 ranks. I do have a question though, do you deliver? I only ask because I will be rather stoned soon and some waffles would definitely hit the stop. He takes the rank of 143rd with 53,793,062 points. TMan95 gained six ranks to take over 165th with 41,888,351 points in the bank.

Thank you Sabrent and thank you @TVwazhere, without your fall, i would have never been mentioned. I also thank the golden WU that made all this possible!

I also thank my mother................

 

I hope the better ram for my main system comes tomorrow, so i can finally start folding on my future server and get at least a tiny bit more PPD and a little better heating. Its getting below freezing.

The comment about me is funny given I just played entirely through Gylt on one 4090 and the other one went offline for a bit as I stopped CPU folding and right on cue the 5950X did its "lockup on idle" trick and I have no idea how long it was offline.  Its just really hard to tell the points lost from problems or gaming vs natural variation from different WUs when you're pumping out these kinds of points.

"Woe is me, life is so hard with these 4090's" 🙃

 

I feel an immense sense of jealousy

Yeah but there's the constant checking to see if the 12VHPWR plug has melted yet.  Its not a good card to have with Anxiety.

 

Funnily enough, at one point it was between getting a Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 4TB-G or the second 4090.  Because while my broadband is Gigabit, patching games takes WAY longer than the darn download on large updates due to most of my storage being slow for random IO.  The 660p can be slower than HDDs for writes when the SLC cache fills up.

 

Note my gaming rig specs:
2TB Sabrent Rocket 4+ (OS)
2TB Intel 660p SSD
4TB WD BLUE SSD

Well cry me a river over the 12vhpwr. That’s the reason I’ve stayed away from the 4000 series till they get this shit straightened out.

 

I made the same mistake twice(thrice) bought 2x 660P 2TB and a 1TB when they first came out. I ran windows on the 2TB for all of three weeks before it got replaced back to the OEM 1TB 🤣🤣

 

1 sat in storage for a while then I killed a Samsung pm980 1tb on my camera server so what I’m trying to see if I can kill it it’s in my G5 SE, 5505 which I don’t use for folding because I blew up the motherboard on it twice folding on it🤣 it strictly my camera server and record 24, seven, 365. It’s currently at ~360 TB written. And 90% health has 6 bad/reallocated sectors. Which isn’t too bad for a qlc drive.

 

The other lives in my Linux laptop as a secondary drive from my bc711. I normally use it as a data recovery drive for when I pull data from hfs+ hdds that are so corrupted they crash Mac’s just by plugging them in. But yet Linux can read them normally fine and normally they loose 3-4 corrupt files. (Yes I have some people I do work for that do not believe in ejecting on a Mac) so about once a year, they bring me their external hard drive (now Samsung t7 ssds1-4tb based on the size and what was in use) because it stopped working properly. and I recover the files magically. 🤣🤣 then format the drive and copy the files back. Assuming windows and a SSD smart diagnostics is happy. 

 

I mostly own dell oem ssds followed by retail western digital/sandisk ssds followed by 2x2tb intels and had 1x1tb 660p but sold it to a friend that needed a 1tb to use as a backup drive embedded in their xps15 (I don’t and she doesn’t trust the Samsung 512GB PM991 30mm SSD they have) I do own one Seagate NVME SSD.
