    Hey folks, I'll be taking a brief "holiday" from our team to fold for Adak, a member of Team 32 (Overclockers) who died recently.

    He was an active member of a few folding forums (fora?) and I'd read his posts for years. He will be missed.

    I'll be back afterwards.

    Hi Christian -- great; will see you!

    I know our team will take a hit for this so I'll ask for everyone's understanding while we're gone.

    Adak's score is reaching the stars soon. He is already #1 in current point update and I can imagine we get him on the 7-day-#1 spot too.

    Actually very touching that so many people across teams coming together, also former folder who recently left the project.

    Well I had to do some googling but really this is a fantastic initiative - good luck with it and what a nice way to honour your team member!

    In a truly amazing joined effort (FOLDATHON) over the last five days Adak got the ultimate #1 producer spot in the world.

    As per EOC:
    • 24h/7d: 11mPPD
    • Daily: 9.4mPPD
    • Weekly 61.6mPPD
    • More then 5000 WU done

    The main initiative will go another few days; the final numbers will go up a bit.

    It was nice to see how many people came together over at team 32 and joined for one week of a FOLDATHON to honor Adak. Now this special week comes to an end.

    Sayonara Adak.
