    1000 WU, wooo!

    I've been looking forward to this one for a long time.
    I set a goal for myself to hit 1000wu, in 6 months or less from when I first registered. Well I registered March 5th this year and it's September 4th today so I just made it. Not bad considering it took me 5 days over 3 months to hit 500wu, and I haven't added any machines.
    I said it at 500 and I'll say it again, this is an awesome team to be on. You guys make crunching data for science a whole lot more fun than it sounds, haha. Thanks guys.

    Congrats man.
    Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

    Thumbs up CONGRATULATIONS!

    Stryfe,
    Great job making the 1K milestone, 2K won't be far off at that rate!

    I echo your sentiments, the science is important, but the team is what makes it enjoyable!

    Oh I know, I've been watching, hehe. Hopfully your friends start crunching more so you can give me a good race to the top 200. That's an ever elusive goal though. A few months back 1000wu was good enough to be in the top 200, now it looks like it'll be more like 1300 by the time I make it there.
