Chimp Challenge 2010 - HWC Team?
This is more of a question to the Folding Captains now that we have them
The Chimp Challenge 2010 should be starting up around May 5th. The basic idea is a race to 20M points.
While we may not have the strength right now due to people being down, by the time it starts next month we could be a real contender? Maybe convince some of the NCIX/HWC crossover hitters to join with us? Or merge NCIX & HWC under one Canadian Banner?
I have a bit of hardware at my disposal I could setup temporarily with some help to get turn in some decent points.
Couldn't find all that much information who who organizes it (that's for you Folding Cap's to find out :bleh: ), but here are the general rules: View topic - OFFICIAL 2009 CHIMP CHALLENGE THREAD - Maximum PC Forums
edit: I think it is MaxPC and EOC who help organize it. Maybe look there?
Maybe something to think about because it is coming up fast and I imagine we would need to get our name in the ring, and all members informed asap!
Unfortunately it looks like we would be competing against the likes of OCN who appears to have literally hundreds of people at their disposal (no thanks to thousands in swag :bleh:) but I think we could really pull it off if we get the heavy hitters going.
Last year's won with an average of 3.5M PPD and second at 2.8M
Do it...good exposure also.
I think we should. MaxPC organizes it as far as I can see; I am not against joining up with another Canadian team if thats feasible, but we could try it on our own. It would be great exposure, and if we can get some folks folding for us who normally don't (ie. on other teams, don't usually fold period) we could get noticed.
I was confused when I looked this up earlier. I found all kinds of links for '09 and earlier. Overclock.net has a decent looking signup page here for their team, that could give us ideas:

The thing I noticed when looking at this earlier was that you need to keep the bigadv passkey private for the team; you can't publish it, as some folks might be inclined to submit bad WUs and 'unqualify' us for the bonus points. If we join, i think we should get some WUs done under the passkey to get the bonus setup with Stanford before the competition.
But as far as I know, you need to register a username for your team at MaxPC, and at the start date of the competition you put your points in. But for the life of me, I see no thread concerning this year's competition.
20m points? well lads, ill get even older till i reach that goal
oh,ok. you gusy scared me there for a moment.
I'm in to contribute as much as I can, but warm weather is quickly approaching and the computer being in my room. I'll see how I can deal with the heat.
And if we put it out around 800,000 PPD as a team every day like we do these days, 20M doesn't seem that far away.
I have contacted one of the larger teams who have done this a few times with a few questions. Here are the guidlines from last year:
Here is what I got, if they qualify:
I liked Beavers Gone Bananas
How about Chimps_EH :bleh:
