I don't believe that to be true! The rules favored the smaller teams to even things out. That said with them adding a few PC's it would take us hundreds to make up for that. OCN has never put up numbers like this before and I think everyone here deserves a pat on the back. I changed over my rigs to continue my quest to 5 million, which I did after realizing there was no way my few PDD was going to mean the difference of getting us to 1st place.
I think we did very well but 10 days long is a bit much, for me anyway. I did fold longer than my norm and that's a plus for OCN no matter what. My reward is a higher electric bill and reading post like yours instead of how awesome it was for so many OCN members to pull the record numbers we did.
I don't mean to single you out Ceadderman, I just feel the positives of this competition outway not getting 1st place. Maybe next year the rules will be different and we might win, but it's more of a rally to help win the war on cancer and diseases. That's how I feel it anyway.
Nice job BTW!
I agree about the power bill, but if people were worried about the power bill, they wouldn't be Folding IMHO. Not even for 8 hours a day. We're talking full load here.
I agree the positives are huge. But this is a competition and I'm a hyper competitive nut. I'm the kind of guy that will lend people money in Monopoly just so I can get every last buck. I'm the kind of guy that doesn't sandbag tricks in Spades, Pinochle or Rummy because I want every last point to be accounted for. I'm the kind of guy that roots for his team to blow their opponent out and get mad when they don't win convincingly enough or the Officials blow stupidly dumb calls that a three year old could get right. I don't talk trash, cause I'd rather own ya on the scoreboard.
YES! I am THAT guy. lulz
That being said I am happy that we introduced more people to Folding. That's what the competition was about. I just cannot be happy that we took part though. This was a competition after all. If it was a Folding Drive then YAAAAAAAAAAY US!
But it's a competition and I feel a bit miffed that people don't take it seriously and start dropping off like flies midway through it.I'll get over it...
