I wanted to post that! ; ) Do we want to be in the top 1000?

"Want"? Why not?

With the current number of users very unlikely to ever happen though.

New server will be added today, another dual proc machine.
To be clear-headed rather than confused; lucid rather than obscure; rational rather than otherwise; and to be neither more, nor less, sure of things than is justifiable by argument or evidence. That is worth trying for.

Why not.. it requires ~70,000 points to reach top 1000 as of now. We're less than a month into team mozillazine. I'd say within six months or less we should be there.

I doubt that, unless all other teams (except a maximum of 999) stop working. Otherwise many of the teams in the current top 4000 or so will also increase their points, making it much much harder to get into the top 1000. You cannot compare the points for getting into top 1000 now with what we will have in 6 months or so.

I have a sad feeling that Johann is right, but we can try..!

I don't even know how you can get the amount needed in view. When I click on 'stats' all I get is various top 100s.

But we're growing! As long as there aren't more than 999 teams with over 30 working CPUs, we should be able to make it.

I might be able to setup two more machines during the coming weekend. I'll use RAF_Moz as names to keep the list short.

This team will have NO problem reaching the top 1000. I would bet we can even crack the top 500. I have folded for a while with a group of friends (21 people in the team, but only about 7 or 8 going consistently), and we have team rank 705.

The 'Erik' and 'Motoplex' entries are my fault. One is my little brother and the other is a long-time friend. I've added a few machines at work, because I felt threatened by shadow ;)

Has anyone else noticed that, after playing Civ III, the time per frame never recovers to anywhere near it's initial speed until a reboot is performed? I don't have this problem with any other app.

I switched over to the console version running via firedaemon (though for a different reason), and it still occurs, so it doesn't seem to be the client. *Sigh* oh well...
Bye. Love to all. :)

Meanwhile team firefox entered top 1000 with 68000 points... they've setup a new hompeage on sourceforge, better than having someone's SFX affiliate id as the team homepage.
