    I found this thread on the challenges they issue to boost output. It is very interesting. :)

    Yeah, we should have competitions to gain status on the forum. Maybe an avatar?

    Yeah only you and jethroted would go for that contest for avatar because you both don't have one... but we should make a contest...

    *I quit* I'll never get higher than 500 even if I load on school and library comps.

    Sun Baked:

    I think internal challenges are fun, but only useful if there is something you can do to affect your output average.

    I think most of us are running everything we can. And for those who aren't, why are you holding out? ;) :p

    Now that's insanity, think of a few select people... ;) :p

    Think of the havoc they would create with admin powers. :eek:

    I don't think Arn is that concerned. This link shows the team ordered by rate. I think there is little hope to catch the top three. (Sorry jethroted. You are too darn fast. :)) However the next 10 computer's rate are very similar.....

    Mabey we could do a race to increase your rate, not your points. Like 30 days to increase your rate by 50 points. But that would be unfair to those having folded the longest. . . .

    Sorry I am typing before I am thinking them through. :) Mabey that will spur someone to think of something.


    Tiauguinho:

    Cool, and thanks. I just installed OS X Server on my iMac to test it. So far I am quite impressed....

    All:

    Anybody know why Jelloshots stopped running f@h?

    Yeah we can't make a deal like that.

    (BTW, I didn't say I'm quitting folding, I meant to say I forfit the race, unless, no, well maybe, no :cool: )

    I don't know why Jelloshots stoped. Maybe he is stuck on all 73 pointers... or maybe he stoped.

    I've been talking to him and I'm pretty sure he's stuck on a big one.

    I'll double-check....

    I like contributer for the month. :) Instead of buying a mug, Arn can move you to demi-god status for a month for 1000 units. :D

    If you are listening Arn, it would be alot of publicity to inch up and mabey pass team MacAddict4Life! :D

    And we are closing the gap on LittleWhiteDog. W:):)F This! :p <Just messin with y'all at the pound. ;)>

    In a side note, a new user I have brought to the MacRumors team just got his first workunit it. :) Go for the gold Macs4Me. :D

    being a demi-god for a month isn't all that much incentive. It needs to be something a little more.

    Demi-god for a year, maybe, like all the other demi-gods. But also special recognition in other ways can be used. ;)

    hey

    how much would it help the folding team...if i added the 32 bondi imacs in my schools media center, the 22 all in glob g3's, and an assortment of different imacs (something like 22?)...I am the T.A for the admin guy...So I know all the passwords...all the assorted imacs and half the bondi's are running X .2, does this mattter? I might be willing to risk it...I kinda am a bit board w/ my position they haven't let me set up the accounts for the 1000+ students in OS X server yet...heh

    you should definitely do it, they might not be the fastest out there, but they would make up in speed by having so many. Get the ball running! :D
