An update for those of you wondering what happened to the stats.

The captains had previously known of the link between HWC and NCIX (they competed as one team last year). However, it was accepted that the influence of the NCIX Folders wouldn't majorly impact the standings (as they produced a minority of the points last year).

However, after discussing a fair resolution, chriskwarren and FiXT from HWC have agrred to add a 30% increase on the number of points required per CP for HWC. We all feel this bring the competitiveness back to the CC, while not swinging the balance so far that HWC take too big a deduction.

So, as I've been saying for the past few days, we're still in this. biggrin.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. Tales have been told of untold wealth and fame that comes with this. The victorious team is allowed to display in any honorary fashion the jaded monkey, the losing teams are forbidden to display it.

We all Fold using the same username for this event, so take a look below for the info you'll need. thumb.gif

~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).
Countdown
NOTE: For -bigadv Folders, you may wish to switch your clients to OCNChimpin around the 3rd of May, so the WUs start dropping for OCNChimpin as the Chimp Challenge starts.


~How does it work?
In the past, the teams raced to 20mil points. But this year the captains have decided to change the format, and level the playing field a bit. The total points of each team is taken from the months of October 2010 to February 2011. One-tenth of a per cent (0.1%) of the team's 5-month total will be the points required to earn one Chimp Point.
The team with the most Chimp Points earned at the end of the 10 days will be declared the winner.

Also, remember that we Fold for the research, not for points, or victory in a competition. As such, we do not encourage actions that are detrimental to the Project. This includes priming multiple WUs to drop as the competition starts, or Folding on hardware without permission from the owners.

~Why should I Fold?
Folding@home is involved in trying to understand the folding/mis-folding of proteins in the human body, which is the cause of many diseases (Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Huntington's, and many forms of Cancer). While the Project won't find a cure for any of diseases, its research will benefit other researchers across the world, in the form of peer reviewed, published papers. One of the more significant achievements was simulating protein folding on a millisecond timescale.

One of our own is currently suffering, and we want to show that we support Syrillian, as a community. You might not agree or accept the merits of Folding@home, but most of us do, and we believe it will help lessen the pain cause to people like Syr. grouphug.gif

There are also other reasons to join in. Competition is always fun, and we've got 8 other teams to compete with. Plus, we do have prizes. smile.gif
