Good news everyone, in just a couple more days, we'll finally pass Ars Technica and take our rightful place as the seventh ranked team in the world (sixth becomes our new rightful place immediately after that happens.) But now is not the time to pat ourselves on the back and relax. As I type this, team Maximum PC is barreling towards us at an alarming rate of more than 40,000 points a day. Luckily for us, they're about seven months out, but I'm not waiting any longer to sound the alarm and start rallying the troops. We need our threat list cleared and the sooner the better! So please, join the team.
In local news, another long-running project is nearing completion. The Terahertz Project has recently passed the 980GHz mark, and we just need half a dozen or so good machines to finish it up. After that, it should only be a short while before TTPv2 goes live. I expect that it will be much more effective at boosting team production while entertaining those who participate. Last up for today is a little heads up that I'll soon be sponsoring a Folding@home business card contest much like the bumper sticker contest we had earlier in the year. If you've bothered to read all the way to the bottom of this update you have an advantage; put it to good use and get your creative juices flowing early.
