2017/2018 [email protected] vs Team AnandTech!
Competition will start at 18:00UTC December 1st 2017 and end 18:00UTC Febuary 1st 2018
We are still accepting signups after the competition starts! Get your flank in here and join the troops.

This is our first competition against another team (Team AnandTech), and we need all the help we can get.
To easily keep track of how our two teams are doing, we made a graph updated every hour of the two teams. https://scootaloo.com/folding_competition
The magic number to beat is 50million points in a day. This is AnandTech's peak last year about this time. Our current record for points in one day is 36,806,844: I think we can do better.

Competing in the competition
  • To get started, just download and install the [email protected] software
  • Pick a username to fold under (it automatically registers it when setting up the software)
  • Set a quick little passkey (optional, but recommended)
  • Set the team to 212997 (very important, go pony power!)
  • In addition to installing the software, make a post in this thread saying "Hey! I love you guys (espically you tiwake!) and I want to join the competition. My folding name is SirFoldAlot even though my username on this forum is RainbowCrash41902."
It is not necessary to post in this thread if all you want to do is help the [email protected] team beat Team AnandTech. It is necessary if you want to win a prize though.

About the Competition
The [email protected] software is biological simulation software for research done at colleges across the world. It performs many calculations, and places a load on your system, causing hardware to heat up. While the [email protected] software is designed to go unnoticed by reducing its usage in real time to prevent disruptions to your own usage, you can also limit the maximum usage of the program to keep heat at a safe level. Monitor the first few minutes of running the software, and adjust accordingly, especially on laptops. In most cases, no adjustment is necessary though.





Because [email protected] does not count bonus points unless you complete 10 work units or more, I highly suggest you set up the software several days before the competition starts. When the competition ends you can of course stop the software, however you would be stopping your computer from doing research. The whole point of this competition is to get ponies running the software on their computers for ongoing biological research.


If you want to donate something for a prize, please PM me the details with pictures/links for what it is.

The first ticket drawn gets first pick and so on until there are no more prizes.

Feel free to ask about anything if things are unclear.
Cheers, and may the best pony win. Rainbowdetermined2

yes, the signature banners have been non-functional for a long time. Hiigarian needs to poke the extreme overclocking people about getting us un-banned from the requests 

Quote:Just a quick update. The stats have been upgraded to HTTPS and for the most part should transparently switch you to the secure version of the site. I did code in an exception for the xml feeds & sig images where HTTPS is available but the server won't force it because I don't want to break any custom scripts people are using that might not be able to handle it.
If you are experiencing any problems, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm going to be switching over more parts of the website in the coming days, I just need to go through and fix a few hard-coded URLs.

I also have recently banned a few IPs of misbehaving web crawlers / bots / scripts. I tried to trace each IP back, but if there is no user-agent in the request, and trying the IP in a browser goes to a blank page, there isn't much I can do. If you find your script can no longer access the stats then again, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Also for some people that have embedded pages in Google Docs and WordPress, please remove them. Both those sources do ZERO caching of requests and end up making a LOT of queries for the same data over and over and over.

I'm in (RoBorg)!

I wouldn't mind taking over the sigs if I can get access.
I already updated them a bit a while ago but I've not been around much recently and don't have access to the server.
