    Hi Guys,

    Do we still taunt other teams that we will overtake in the (let's say) next 10 days??

    I don't know - we usually get taunted when others pass us. Its best not to annoy, though. Taunting has had a tendency to come back and bite us in our arse.

    You are absolutely right Mr. Anderson, but it is sooooo much fun! That was one of the reasons I started folding here, we had the best taunts, weren't so uptight like most of the forums here are now. We became much too serious. What happened? Did we got older and wiser... I really don't hope so!!

    Guess again, I have 3 more WU's that I will turn in tonight. I always knew that panda's are slow, too slow... :D

    edit: Taunt me, I insist! That makes folding sooo much more fun!

    Check out my average production (link) - it's been going up lately...but not high enough to eventually pass you, Dreadnought.

    Was that comment intended for me, Dreadnought? I've been watching your daily production as well as my own very carefully...

    Probably best to leave well enough alone. ;) Ask not what your folding can do for you, but what you can do for your folding!

    Why am I not surprised to see you come out of the woodwork for a thread about taunting. :rolleyes: :p

    Good job on your team's continued advance through the ranks, BTW. :)

    Call it a weakness. Besides, I've been hangin' out in the Dual 2.5 shipping thread. Got mine 11 days ago, now properly 'burned in' with folding. Sweet, sweet, silicon! Oh yes! The precious is mine! ;) Fold if ya got 'em!

    No, more for Panda, you are unstoppable know, you outproduce me a lot! I will see you soon passing me... :mad:

    disclaimer: I haven't checked the folding stat yet, so comments from me to others could be wrong! Therefore this source is not reliable and could NOT be hold accountable. Results from the past are no indication for the future.

    Well I was outproducing you by a lot, but my average has dropped back somewhat. I'm still ahead of you though. I'll probably get above 350 points per day again...just you wait.

    EDIT 2: removed sound

    Ahum, yes, I can see that your battlesong will stop the ones folding you are planning to overtake. That must have been the most awfull thing I have ever heard!

    I was going to send a much cooler sound file, but unfortunately it is 1 kb to big... You should hear that engine rumbling (recorded last weekend at Circuit Zandvoort, the Netherlands). The most beautifull sound in the world: a classic Ferrari that was warming up and waiting to go up the track.

    Gentlemen Start your engines, we only have 5 more days to go out there and taunt! Make it worth while!

    Yeah my sound file's a bit stupid - I ripped it from YMail (http://ymail.sourceforge.net). I'll take it down now.
    EDIT: I've put up a new one. It's far too big to attach so I'll link to it instead.

    Hmmmm, this sounds like... well I tell you how this sounds:

    Every year a lot Germans go on holiday to The Netherlands (where I live). Every year you see them all at once, one week you don't see any, the next they have taken over the town, beach, shops, streets, they are everywhere. They all come at once. We always call it the German invasion. Your mp3 sounds to me if that is there song for on the "battle field", you here them come, you know they come, you know it is to late when you here that song.

    Know I now, it is to late, to late to stop you, to late to outproduce you...
    But I have to warn you, the battle isn't over, not know, not ever, so come on and overtake me. Always look over your shoulder when you passed me, I won't be far... LOL

    Mustang... any issues with crashing while folding? I'm wondering if -forceasm is buggy on the 2x2.5s. It's either that or my RAM is dodgy.

    My post has absolutely nothing to do with your rank or anyone else's rank besides my own and SilentPanda's.
