Welcome to week seven of our Folding coverage. Sometime next week, it looks like we'll be celebrating our long-awaited return to the Top 10. With our next two conquests so close, we need to start focusing on getting more. We've lost some ground on Team ArsTechnica, and SAGoons is slowly closing the gap to get back on our threat list. We need to keep the pressure up so we don't drop back out of the Top 10 after we return. We become one heck of a target when we get there. Other than that, all quiet on the Folding front.
Here are the new members, top producers, and links to hot threads in the folding forum. All stats will be gathered noonish Monday from ExtremeOC.
Frankenbot Stats: #214, 1,904 points last week, Total points 10,757, Total WUs 112
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again to emkubed this week for hosting our first three Frankenbots, and to Leor for offering to host one, as well. If you can host a Frankenbot, please email me as well, our bots always need good homes.
Thus ends week seven of our ongoing folding coverage. Keep it up, everyone!
