Welcome to week six of our Folding coverage. As we continue to gain ground on our conquests, SAGoons has ramped up production to pull just about dead even with us. We've still got a half million points more than them, but we need to be aware of the continuing threat they represent to our position. Fortunately, our conquests keep getting closer and closer. DSL Reports Team Helix is just over 2 weeks out from us, with PC Perspective.com Folding Team only three or four days beyond that. Hopefully next month we'll be celebrating our return to the Top 10. Our efforts to get Team ArsTechnica on our conquest list have shown progress; they are only about 5,000 points a day ahead of us now, as opposed to the 7,500 points a day last week. Let's keep the efforts up. Another conquest for us would be extremely impressive.
Stanford just updated the 5.0 client to version 5.02. Download and update your boxes as needed. I have been slowly swapping my boxes over to the new client with no major issues so far. Having the service capabilities built in is quite a boon.
Here are the new members, top producers, and links into hot threads in the folding forum. All stats will be gathered noonish Monday from ExtremeOC.
Frankenbot Stats: #221, 1,750 points last week, Total points 8,853, Total WUs 91
Nice to keep up interest in 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 email@example.com. A special thanks to emkubed this week for hosting our first three Frankenbots. If you can host a Frankenbot, please email me. Our bots always need good homes.
Thus ends week six of our continuing Folding coverage. Keep it up, everyone!
