This November marks 3 years since I started folding on my Family's computer under smASHer88 and created our Folding@Home team - Aussie Rules Footy. To celebrate the Team's 3rd Birthday, we're going to host a November-long Foldathon!
For those team members who don't know what a Foldathon is - It's where as many team members as possible, fold as much as they can within a set time period.
One of the main aims of the Foldathon is to push our team ranking position. Last year's results produced a 199 position bump! But starting at 594th position (as opposed to last year's 1,279th) means that the push for team ranking is so much harder because of the increased team competition within the top 1,000. I think though if we can put in a good team effort throughout this Foldathon, then we can advance our team ranking atleast 30 spots.
I'm also hoping Aussie Rules Footy will pickup a few new team members during the month as well. Please encourage your Family and Friends to join up ;) Of course your increased folding efforts during November will also be helping Folding@Home as well! lol
I've now edited the countdown clock that appears at the top of this blog's sidebar to show how much time is left until the end of our 3rd Team Birthday Foldathon.
The statistics below have been taken just earlier, and will be used in conjuction with figures from late on the 30th of November to decide our 3rd Team Birthday Foldathon winner! Now as like last year, if a team member has more than one name they fold under, then the sum of their names will be used (excluding typo'd names and default ('Anonymous' & 'PS3') names). I would love to be able to offer up a prize (or prizes!), but unfortunately until you guys start showing an interest in some of my advertising material lol, the team can't afford any. So the winner will have their name stamped in Aussie Rules Footy Team Birthday Foldathon history, with a list of previous winners to sit just below the countdown clock, year-round!
