Welcome to week five of our continuing folding coverage. As we look upon another week of slaying WUs, our conquests slowly draw closer and closer. Our nearby conquests have stepped up a bit, but we're still working on overtaking them. Fortunately for us, we seem to have gained considerable ground on our furthest conquest at the moment, Team Rage3D, gaining almost 100 days on our conquest date since last week. Also of note is the production of Team Ars Technica, which is currently only ahead of us by approximately 7,500 points a week. Catching them is definitely an attainable goal for us.
Within a month we should be jumping up two notchessooner if you can find another box to set up. Keep your eyes out and your recruiting efforts ongoing. Also, be sure to tell the people whose boxes you're borging what you're doing and why. There is nothing more difficult to explain to a user than why his performance appears to be all used up by an application he can't see.
Stanford just released their new 5.0 client with built-in service options. No more FireDaemon required for installation! The TR folding tutorial is being rewritten to cover the ins and outs of this new client. Expect an updated tutorial page soon.
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: #238, 1,502 points last week, Total points 7,103, Total WUs 68
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
Thus ends week five of our continuing folding coverage. Keep it up, everyone!
