Welcome back to the Folding update. We have several smaller items this week, so it'll be brief. But first, the links and stats.
The Terahertz Project is proceeding nicely. Several people are vying for the really cool shirt, in addition to other fabulous (albeit unnamed at the moment) prizes. Drop into our discussion thread to share your thoughts on our most recent attempt to avoid losing the "Doodyhead Race" to Rage3D.
The reigning King of UnitedGerbilNation, jeffry55, is at it again. Check here for his most recent recruitment drive. This time, he's trying to add a hundred new members. The Tech Report has hundreds of thousands of readers; if only a fraction of them started folding on a single processor under the UGN name, UGN would easily be the top folder in the world. Get in on the ground floor of what is sure to be a steady rise to the top.
And last but not least, a favor: I'm running out of things to write about in these updates. I really want to keep them fresh and interesting, but I'm finding it more difficult to do that. So what I'd like is for all the people that regularly read these updates to drop me a line and tell me what you want to see in this space every week. That's all for this week. Thanks for reading.
