Well, plenty of room for improvement and I do believe that with some effort, we can juice our hardware for what it's worth (while preserving it's longevity) and climb the ladder slowly (may not advance much this month because already too much time has passed). I have confidence in us all.
As for my cat, I don't know if my luck will always hold with beta units, and the slow units I have been getting will make it easier for a lot of people to catch up to me. Worse, I may need to take a few days off when I move, which could have the possibility of increasing to a couple of weeks. Since I am not sure yet, I will be on the hunt for someone who has the availability and hardware to do at least 80% of the job that I have been doing in Wildcard cat until I get back online at the new place.
But, I will always be on OCN and whenever possible, I will always prefer to fold here with the best team in the world.
Also, thinking of selling my Gigabyte X58-UD3P board (purchased from the awesome sgthop, former folder for BBG), the Core i7-920 it has in it, and the Mushkin 12gb (3x4gb) DDR3 1600 CL8 it has in it. I want to downgrade this a bit, pay off a bill with the profit and prepare the way for the beast I wish to build.
