Okay guys, it's time to stop fooling around. The Tech Report is approaching quickly, if we do nothing we will loose our precious rank of #8, personnally, I feel that #7 would be a better number, so here's the plan.
I did the math. Team Rage 3d is our target, they have 62,356 points per day. There is a 2,617,997 point gap between us. If we want to do this in a year, then we have 365 days, thus our formula is as follows:
365x - 62,356(365) = 2,617,997 Where x is how many points per day we need to close the 2,617,997 point gap in one year.
So, multipliying 62,356 by 365days, we get 2,275,990 more points that they will have in one year then they have now.
So, adding that to the 2,617,997 we get 4,893,987 points that we have to fold in one year.
Dividing that by 365 we get 13,408 points per day. Now, I agree, that is a lot of points. But think of it this way, it's only a 23% increase in our current production. Also, you can think of it as adding 134 new CPUs, if the average CPU folds at 100 points per day.
At the very least, we can stave off The Tech Report from knocking us off our beloved #8 position.
I figure, if we can get about 25 dedicated users, each producing 250 points per day, and 100 more of your average users, each producing an average of 75 points per day, then we could do it.
So tell your friends, tell your family, the goal is set for one year. Even if The Tech Report should pass us up, at least we can keep Team Rage 3d from taking our beloved #8 position.
What do you say?

I just sent Chams a message asking if he know someone who could write a program on a cd that would autorun and install folding setting our team to default and only asking for a user name. THis would make it a lot easier for people to installl. I am seeing my doctor tomorrow and I am going to print off some information from the stanford site about folding. Maybe we could get some interest going this way.
