We're over 10 million again, and it isn't winter yet!
^^This, but I also think it helps to push the 24/7 folders even harder. Get friends/family's computers to help, upgrade equiptment, push OCs, run different clients, etc...
Personally, I changed to doing bigadv just before this started (only dropped 2 bigadv before Ten[Fold] started) as a way to try to win...just didn't realize that I would get a bigbigadv that would take 5 days to complete!
As a 24/7 folder, I've enjoyed it, it forced me to get creative, I pushed up to doing bigadv and bigbigadv, I got my mom to let me fold her system and I've had a great time talking about what we're all doing to try to post points.
In the end, it did exactly what zodac wanted it to: get those that don't fold 24/7 folding 24/7 for at least a few days and get those that do fold 24/7 to push a little hard to get more points and contribute more to the research. And honestly, just because you can't win, does it really make it any less exciting?
