It would be about 10k most likely, which is a very nice amount of points.

Only for the contest though, my parents don't like the power bill all year round.

This is not a contest where we can win stuff. Its more like a battle between F@H teams to see how much computer power we can get together under 1 name and race to a set amount of points, Last year the race was to 20 million points and took around 1-2 weeks. The winning team gets bragging rites and the loser gets the curse or the jaded monkey. Some teams may have contests to help their numbers during the race, The race is in May to help teams get one last good push in for some nice ppd before summer hits and people start shutting things down a bit because of the heat. If we had a contest that would be great but I think if we get the word out that we are in the race our team sprite and National pride is pretty good and hopefully people would be willing to switch usernames for a week or 2 and put Canada and HWC on the Folding map. Even if new people were to fold just for the race thats great to. If we do enter the race I hope the mods or someone posts in the off topic that we are in a race to remind some of the part time folders that we could use some help for 1-2 weeks, Every WU helps.

Actually , the winner gets 'the jade monkey' and bragging rights. The loser gets the dreaded 'monkeys paw'.

I have sent a PM to one of the folks at MaxPC about how to sign-up, and the start date. There is a preliminary, 'non-official' thread that was just created over there today.

So for Chimp names we have the following suggestions:
- DamBeavers

- LoonieBeavers

- Beavers_Gone_Bananas

- Chimps_EH

- chinookAPEs

- Dam Good Folding

- LoonieLemurs

FixT: you care to put these into a poll for a couple of days?
