The numbers are looking grimm but don't give up. Teams are passing us up but don't give up. Our top 20 looks bleek but don't give up. We have been riding high on success for a long time but since COVID came up and was included in [email protected], we've been getting whomped. It's all good. Summer is here and some of us have had to shut down or scale back due to heat issues and what not. I personally have made a conscious decision to sell off the working parts of my farm so that I can follow an aggressive upgrade path. The cost is points in the short term but the return should be massive points on the other end.

Just do what you can when you can and don't give up.

While some teams are going to pass us soon, we are holding our own against others. Good work guys.

IÂ’ve missed a lot of updates in the last 2-3 months. Geez oh Pete. (Sorry for the harsh language.) WellÂ… we just have to keep at it is all. Thanks guys.

WeÂ’ve taken a huge hit in production. HayesK has dropped out and our top 20 only has 16 earning 1 million+. This includes my own drop in production. Now the biggest concern when folks drop out is that we hope they are OK. If you drop out please drop a note letting us know that you are healthy and well. We all understand that summer heat, electric cost and other factors get in the way of folding. We just want to know that you are well. Just keep doing what you can do. If you have to drop out for a bit, then so be it. Come back when you can.

Team Milestones.
penquininja just earned 600 million.
normlikeme just earned 90 million.
flifisher just earned 40 million.
OzoneOOO just earned his first 10 million!
brogre74 just earned 5 million.

Milestones are earned at all levels. Milestones are the best part of all this to me. We canÂ’t all have access to large farms of folding rigs. We all do what we can. Be it your first million, first billion or first trillion, milestones are awesome. Great job and thank you for your efforts. They all count.

World Top 200:
Times are especially tough on these guys since Stanford started including COVID into the mix. Cheers guys.

Assuming I don't lose too much production now that I'm home and using my computer again, it looks like I'm going to be moving up about 10 slots over the next 3 - 4 weeks without a lot of people poised to pass me and force me back down again. I don't think it is quite enough to make it to the top 100 this year again, but I'll be getting close.

I lost about 5 days thanks to a tree taking out power lines just before I went out of town for the holiday weekend. Just got to wait for the average to come back up, but I've got my folders producing again.

I'll be working on some new parts for the PC in man cave that folds all summer. Need a bigger PSU and a modern case to fit two bigger GPU's. Should have a modest increase in a week. Replacing a RTX 2060 with a RTX 3060 Ti. Both small ,lower powered GPU's. Hopefully that will gain me a million per day....Hopefully.:thup:

Still hunting for 3070's and 3080's....:popcorn:

Appears the entire farm went down last Friday, about two days after I left home. Plan to be home late next week. Hopefully everything will restart OK.
