Weekly Folding update

— 12:23 PM on August 3, 2004

Welcome to week three of our continuing folding coverage. SAGoons is a distant memory now, as our efforts turn to conquests. We're gaining ground on all our conquests, and keeping ourselves in the #7 slot of overall production. DSL Reports Team Helix is still our next conquest, and PC Perspective.com Folding Team is just 12 days behind them. I think getting Team Rage3D within a year is doable if we keep up this increase in folding production. With a little more effort, we could be celebrating a conquest on Labor Day, so don't let up; keep our eyes on the prize of having HardOCP on our conquest list someday.

Here are the new members, top producers, and links into hot threads on the folding forum. All stats will be gathered noonish Monday from ExtremeOC.

  • New Members: apwnh, stebog, Huk, yes, SirDowny, Joshco, Thomas_White, EtOH, woodp, schrep, Billybob54, swampangel, Corrado, charles_morcom, Drew, flapjack, Technophile
  • Conquests: DSL Reports Team Helix, 43 days; PC Perspective.com Folding Team, 55 days; Team Short-Media, 125 days; Maximum PC Magazine, 194 days; Team Rage3D, 423 days. We've definitely gained ground on our conquests; nice work to all. Let's keep it up and add to this list.

  • Hot Threads in DC: A team with big goals, Emkubed feeling the pressure, Even I have conquests, New client beta coming
  • Frankenbot Progress: The Frankenbot project is a way for all of us at Tech Report, who all possess numerous odds and ends stuffed into our respective parts closets a way to combine these leftovers into cohesive juggernaut of folding power. We still have two bots running, the third box still not quite online, the fourth is just about complete as well, and efforts have begun on a fifth.

    Frankenbot Stats: #287, 1,516 points last week, Total points 2,247, Total WUs 34

    Nice beginnings for the project. Remember, if you contributed to a Frankenbot or two, part of those numbers are yours! If you have any leftovers, let people know here or email me at howarddrake@techreport.com.

Thus ends the third edition of the Folding Weekly. Feel free to mail in topics, suggestions, or corrections. At the rate we're going we'll be in the Top 10 again by Christmas. Keep on foldin'!
