SIGNUP THREAD

For 10 days we will be challenged by the biggest and best Folding@home teams in the world in the 2011 Chimp Challenge, and we need to unite to best them all. biggrin.gif

Not only will we be showing the world OCN is the greatest site of them all, but we will also be contributing to invaluable research to the Folding@home Project. So we can have fun, and do good for someone. wheee.gif


~I've been hearing about the Chimp Challenge - what is it?
The Chimp Challenge is a Folding@Home contest between 9 of the major Folding teams. It is run over 10 days, and the team with the most "Chimp Points" at the end will be crowned the Chimp Champ. The victorious team gets to claim the lucky jaded monkey as the prize.

We all Fold using the same username for this event, so take a look at the thread linked below for more info:
Quick Chimp Challenge SetUp

~When is it?
The competition officially begins on the 5th of May (Thursday), and will run for 10 days (until Sunday the 15th of May). The Challenge begins and ends at 12pm Noon PDT (7pm UTC).

But, for all you guys with your i7s, if you want to get some major points, make sure to add the -bigadv flag, and start Folding on the 3rd/4th of May. That way your points will start dropping as the CC starts. wink.gif

Gief Metro 2033

I'm really looking forward to this, it should be epic. I've cleaned out the Antec 902, the filters, fans, metal work, it's like bloody new now

Just hope it goes to a good home.

GO GO CHIMPIN'

If they ever decide to code it then maybe we will with those fancy dual cores and future multi-core phones folding away.
Its already possible to do for BOINC, not sure how efficient it is though...
