Folding name is galactose. At least its nearing winter, so the cpu-heater won't be too terrible.

yes, I specifically asked him to reset it before the competition starts... it helps makes sure that everything is running correctly before the competition actually starts.

And we are live!

I have competition stats running at https://scootaloo.com/folding_competition, and personal stats for us at https://scootaloo.com/bah_stats. There have been some issues getting stats for new users, and I have had to manually record some numbers. If your starting number of points does not look correct please let me know.

Alright guys... if everyone can push the team to above 50million points in a day, at any time during the competition, I will do something special for the team. I don't know what, but it will be a worthy monument to do something special for. Maybe a promise for a new computer build to be given away next winters competition or something.

As it currently stands, we need to push a little over 1 000 000 points more to be on par with Anand. Seems very doable. Couple extra people, keeping your rigs on for a little longer each day, breaking into your neighbour's house and taking their computers. You know, standard stuff!

EDIT: I should clarify, that's the average PPD. The raw stats currently show us in the lead, but historically speaking, we usually peak in the first part of the competition, then drop off quite a bit.
