I've been eyeing you for a few days. I don't leave my machines up all day, and unfortunately I forgot to turn them on Monday before work. But today they are cranking. Perhaps the time is right for a shoot-out...

Good idea - get some of us new folks to respond

Just started in early March thanks to the TR front page - the best way to get the additional people we need to take on Rage3D (and help the project).

So ... first one to 20,000?

Outside of excession, Joshvar, VaTech Hokie, borzwazie, Sparrow hopefully some of the other folks in the under 10K level will join the challenge
such as (hint, hint) ...
Blaylock, before_I_forget, CannonFodder, shrykhar, Bralex, Toasty, Figyo, Ttocs,...
Suggestion - we can use the 20K milestone to see who come in first, second, etc.
Keep folding!

Top 300 sounds good too - currently that is 21,055 so pretty close to 20K anyway. Either way, both, whatever.
That should take about a month unless somebody is ramping up big time.
Limit this contest to those which post in this thread and currently has less than 10,000 points? (don't want somebody at 19,000 to take 3 days and wins)

...Then maybe a race with StarkMjolk to the top 200 ;)
Keep folding!

Great idea excession!
Since this is your challenge, what do you want the goal to be, and who can participate?
I'll wager a week of folding (2GHz AMD XPM, large WU, 24/7) for the winner.
Keep folding!

Now you're making this contest interesting, and I can't compete. :cry:

What about you all race to 300, and I to 200, and the one reaching his goal first wins? ;)

Great idea excession, and good luck!

I have 7111 points. :-(
It's tough to handicap a multiple competitor race, though..

If you can't add more yourself, you can always find someone elses machine to add. Both a cheap and effective way to improve your PPD. :)
