    Sorry again for the late news - if something like that looks inevitable again once i'm working i'll probably opt for an early news on Thursday night instead. I could have sorted it out when i got back last night but who really wants to sleep in the bath? :p

    Huge congratulations go to DarthEnd Viper for his massive dumping this week. Amazing to see what that lot can do while those pesky kids aren't around :cool:
    Also a lot of new members this week - pushing us over the 400 member mark, also a load more coming through already for next week :)


    Anyone who still wants to wear a slacking award can go for it - i fancy the gold one this week

    *phew* seems to have escaped notice that I disabled the F@H service so I could get my room back down to reasonable temperatures..

    Nicely done all :D

    Well done, in particular, to Darkendviper who managed to get 38.88% of the teams' points last week :eek:

    Welcome to the new folders, get your stomping boots on and stomp all of the slackers.

    For next week's slackers awards, I would like to nominate my Dad and my brother for slackness in picking up my box of bits and sending them down. I spoke to my brother last night and he says he won't get them picked up 'til Tuesday or Wednesday - thus further delaying the rebuilding of my other P4 :(

    STOMP ON TEAM OcUK :cool:

    Stan :)

    Well done Rich :)

    Nice work guys - our output seems to be on the up again. Helped more than a little bit by Viper - I dunno how many rigs he has in the Fold this time but his output is frightening :p

    Now if only I could shift these rubbish Gromacs...

    Nice one with the stats:)

    Welcome to all the new members :cool:

    I agree completely with the gold medal slacker, lost 4 units at least before reading the thread about it, I just assumed it was the 2nd core on my x2 3800+ combined with the blast furnace temps in my crunching den :eek:

    LOL I love it :D

    Seems that a few peeps have had hardware issues this week, hopefully we'll get them sorted quick time and start stomping those geeks.

    Nice one and the stats and welcome to the new members.

    Rich ;) I'm saying nowt :D

    Oh and well done Mattus for stomping me.

    I have adopted the black sheep sig for this week as I didn't use it the week I was actually on the slackers list. Also, I feel slightly responsible for not organising the sending down of the P4 bits sooner :o

    Nice sig :D

    Must be frustrating knowing that the stuff is there and you can't get your hands on it. You'll get it sorted out soon Bigstan :)

    Slacker :p

    Hehe, thanks mate but it wasn't really a true stomp if your foldy rigs are broken! Working on some total turkeys right now so you have a good chance to catch up if you get the rigs up!
