September 2007

The first ever Folder of the the Month is smartcat99s.

This was his nomination:

smartcat99s

He is the person that works on Fahremote whenever someone has a problem and is mostly in IRC awaiting to help people fix problems if they occur. Really helps in monitoring your computer's to make sure they are folding correctly. If they are not folding correctly, you would know by checking Fahremote as the percent would not have changed. This has saved me quite a bit.

I'll add that he is wise beyond his years and we are fortunate to have him folding for MaximumPC. Always ready to help and a whiz at Linux, which is a skill that is growing in demand in the folding world. I don't think of him as a real monkey. He worries too much about offending people, not a real monkey trait.

I recently moved him to Canada in another post and was corrected.
He still resides in Nebraska and even attends college there.
He is in his first semester taking a Computer Engineering Major.

He won't give up a picture of himself but did send along some photos of the family.

Lets hear it for the first Folder of the Month.

Folder of the month - Oct 07' - tiredoldman

It was a close one (16 to 15) between tiredoldman and hackman.
I'm pretty sure hackman's month is coming very soon.

tiredoldman enjoys the heck out of folding.
His posts are everywhere in every folder.

He has serious health problems and they don't seem to dampen his spirit at all.
He adds to the interest in MaximumPC folding and that's very important to retention and great team results.

Congratulations tired - Folder of the month - Oct07'

Folder of the month - Nov 07' - gsmitheman

Well, it was fairly obvious to most folders who have been around for awhile, that as soon as g was nominated, he would
run away with the votes. We chased him down, though and counted the votes and he was our winner!! :lol:

There is so much to g that makes him a valuable part of the team that it is hard to know where to begin. Even just perusing his Spotlight
gives you volumes of information.

G posts on a regular basis, but the posts are never the same. He does Spotlights, congratulatory threads, milestone accomplishments,
random bits and pieces that he thinks will inspire, provoke thought or get a chuckle. Posting as often as he does with
those wacky photos also allows him to exercise another hobby of his...photography.

We've had several team members post about how it was g's posting that kept them folding, or brought them back into the forums
after a hiatus. G's own attitude towards folding can be summed up best by a recent post of his:

You should know I get far more out of folding than I put in.
I need something worthwhile to do and the forum gives me that.
I get to use my interest in photography also and that's great.

All I do is show everyone how great you all are and avoid being negative.

We will fight our way to the top and then be the one everybody is out to dethrone.

The fun never ends, enjoy folding -G


There is much more we can say about g, but I think that he'd rather we get back to taking our rightful place as the #1 (points-wise)
folding team in the world!!

Folder of the month - Dec 07' - hackman2007

Well the votes have been tabulated, and after being nominated multiple times, hackman2007 is our winner!! :D

He's taken countless hours of his own time to ensure
that anyone visiting these forums has a smooth, virus and malware free
computing experience. He is a long time folder who has never hesitated
to step up to the plate with help for those that are in need.

Hackman is also on the IRC channel...when he's not busy studying...or doing laundry :wink:

He is also working on a project that allowed him to purchase a quad core CPU...unfortunately, I don't have all the details, maybe hackman will grace us with an acceptance speech and links?

Congratulations hackman2007, you're Folder of the Month for December!

Michael McCord, MD

This months voting was close, but when the dust settled and the keyboards and mice stopped clicking, our resident physician emerged the victor!!

He's been very involved with the team since signing on, posting tips and congrats with copious amounts of enthusiasm. Also, he somehow wrangled his way into the Chicago Tribune, even being quoted for an article on folding at home.

So, Doc, step up and receive your accolades....I hear the monkeys may even have a sample of their peach schnapps for you...a very small sample, but it's the thought that counts!! :D

Well,this has been one of the most, if not the most, interesting Folder of the Month voting processes yet. Allegations of ballot box stuffing, rejection by the Fox Network and a post or two about curse words within the forums. But for those of you that plowed ahead and voted, here is your

00john00!!

This guy has been a huge asset to the team..whether it's a thread on splitting your quad to run two SMP instances, a handy little Linux guide, or just posting in general, this guy has done it. Congrats, 00john00....forgive me for asking, but are you the guy that sends a month's worth of quad SMP's to the winner? Because if you are, it's a shame that you'd send them to yourself, and I know there's someone out there willing to be the beneficiary this month ;)
