View Full Version : Buffer Zone

11-07-2006, 11:46 PM
As ANOTHER number 1 is coming up for XS pretty soon :woot: I think we need to discuss tactics on what sort of buffer we want. The 30million on Dimes was perfect as we still have that lead even now.

I was going to suggest between 500k and 750k maybe on QMC, what do you all think to that ? We can then shift focus elsewhere and have a nice cushion should we come under attack from any other teams.

swoosh, another tumble weed. Now that you guys have #1 perhaps a plan should be in order?

A buffer zone would be nice, but I doubt we'll even have time to build one.
Take a look at Planet3DNow!, those guys are on 200k daily average :eek:

I'll throw a few machines on to help with your lead

Cheers Hassan.

The idea of a buffer was before PLanet3d turned up, now we will just be lucky to hold them off.....

hopefully planet 3d will have better things to do than try and close the gap to us and AT. As for the buffer zone I think we need a gap big enough that if we stopped for 2 weeks-1 month we would still be number 1. So going by AT's 7 day average of 41K this would mean a gap of 574K minimum. :toast:

Over the weekend I'll throw a Kent, 2 Conroes, and a Merom at it... and if that's not enough, I put a clovertown rig on for you guys come early next week... Movieman asked me to help you guys out!

Are you guys using opti clients?

11-28-2006, 05:35 AM
Yes. Use them while you can. Its worth it.

I'm willing to help you guys try and fend off Planet 3DNow! just someone send me a PM with all the information that I need to sign up for it. If XSTM has an account then my production will be under that, will install opti clients while crunching QMC@H.

Got it all working, took some time figuring out what the hell was wrong, 6460/29882 benchies :-D wish I could get these benchies in WCG. 6 days left of production before I switch back to WCG for the holidays. Hope I can help pump out a little to help you guys.

In today's daily production, planet 3d did 105k and we did 103k, we are about to stop them dead in their tracks...

12-13-2006, 11:58 PM
Well Hassan you look like a train that cant be stopped at the moment....

Hopefully we will start pulling away soon.

Been away for a while, power issues here in Seattle. I haven't been able to get work for the last day and a half. I reset the project, and still get the error message. I am going to switch the rig I was using on qmc to d2ol for while.

12-26-2006, 11:28 AM
I'm not getting any work from QMC either.
Moved back to SOB untill it sorts it's self

When are we going to attack the ppl creeping on our #1 position... 1 week? 2 weeks?

01-07-2007, 04:36 AM
