Winamp Forums records of everything

This thread is a collection of records, pretty much like the Guinness World Records but confined to the Winamp community. If you have an impressive record, state it here, and see if any other Winamp Forum member beats you to it!

Note: All records must be numerical, or else comparison would be impossible.

I'll start with these three:
  • Most number of hours up - Record holder: sttaffy; Record: 51.5 hours
  • Most Pepsi consumed (long term daily average) - Record holder: Bizznatch; Record: 2 litres per day
  • Most Pepsi consumed (best one-day achievement) - Record holder: Bizznatch; Record: 5 litres

Well, it's probably the most hated record around here, but I had an average of 40.1 posts per day as an all time high. I figure I might as well post it before someone else does.

longest amount of hours i've slept without waking up: 28

Good idea, grif

Most hours of uptime on a computer without a power supply fan: 100 odd
Most data transfer on a 56k connection: 4GB in one week
Highest mark on an essay written the night before: 90%, twice

well, then... we'll take the stats off my router instead, P100@133, no PSU fan and no CPU fan (but unlike the PII it has a heatsink), up time:11days, 17hrs (it was built second, total used CPU time:4days, 2hrs)

[edit] or we could take the uptime from my laptop, no PSU fan there either. Up Time: 4days, 22hrs[/edit]

You know that doing that, it should have enough heat to burn-out your processor soon. No cooling will melt your systemboard, and cause your computer to freeze, or function slower.

Here's a better world record, the fastest time to burn-up your computer w/out a power supply fan, and heat sink fan.

In one day I drank 1 can shy of 2 cases(47 cans)of Mountain Dew. If each can has roughly 11.5 ounces...540.5 ounces. I think I might be wrong but thats aproximately 30 liters. The only thing I got for it was a $20 and a sugar high.

um, nope, thats only 15Litres...

1 can = 355ml
335ml x 47cans = 15745ml = 15.7L

Hmm... it didn't take me over 24 hours, but I walked to downtown Toronto once. I live 5 minutes (by car) from the border with Oakville, so you can imagine how far that was

The most damaged equipment in one year.

As you may know (some, you may not) I broke 5 cd-roms, and 2 hardrives in one school year in my Computer Repair class. Most broken, I still hold the record at my school, since I was the only one that has destroyed any.

I've got an old Compaq P166 (as a music jukebox), and although it has a PSU fan, it doesn't have a processor fan, just a really massive heatsink that's about 4 times the size of the chip.

As for longest uptime... My Proxy server / router thing (a 486DX/2-50 running Windows NT4) has been up continually since November last year (it would have been since last summer, except we had a power cut )
