Catch me if you can (part II)

I've continued my rapid ascent in ranking since my previous update on my participation in the WCG:
Total Run Time (y:d:h:m:s) (Rank) 0:024:16:24:00 (#39,374)
Points Generated (Rank) 15,684 (#37,881)
Results Returned (Rank) 55 (#38,393)
Avg. Run Time Per Calendar Day (y:d:h:m:s) 0:000:18:30:45
Avg. Run Time Per Result (y:d:h:m:s) 0:000:10:46:15
Avg. Points Per Hour of Run Time 26.47535
Avg. Points Per Calendar Day 490.12500
Avg. Points Per Result 285.16364
Avg. Results Per Calendar Day 1.71875
Turns out, I am in the top 2,400 members in terms of points generated/day and in the top 2,600 members for total runtime/day based on yesterday's results (1,004 points and 0:001:13:08:38 runtime) which should ensure a continued rapid ascent, for a while at least. Note that my averages are skewed low because I added the second device after a couple of weeks experience (without issues) with my first. It will be a while, though, before I crash the 5,000 barrier as I am currently 119,142 points shy of the 5,000th ranked member.

Since I first posted on the WCG, the number of devices connected has grown by nearly 10,000 to 134,221 and the number of aggregate years runtime generated has swelled by more than 1,000 years, rapidly approaching 15,000 years. All that in less than a month's time!

My experience to date has been problem-free with the exception that my laptop is a little warmer when I first pick it up in the morning. I've noticed no performance degredation what-so-ever. Given that the extra cycles are going to a good cause, if you haven't already joined, I would encourage you to do so.
