If only I was folding for my fellow Canadians instead of .......Good luck to all Canadians folding here!

Also, HardwareCanucks is officially on our team's folding radar. You're gaining on us by over 190k daily! It'll only take you guys 3.8 months to overtake us at the rate you're going...

Boo no rosetta

Oh well, I guess I should start folding anyways... I'll have 4 gtx 260's as of today ... although I think I'm going to sell 2.

But I'll set up F@H tonight and see how it goes.

Big Kudo's to everyone involved in putting this together, obviously a lot of thought was put into keeping it fair for everyone. The fact that this is the beginning of a series of Folding oriented contests makes it even better.

Thanks to ASUS for the prizes, I'm a fan so it works for me. My EN9800GTX is at 3304 WU's Folded and hasn't missed a day's work since it was installed.

That's excellent news, the crunchers on our R@H Team have been doing a lot of hard work moving the Team up the charts.

Hopefully a way can be found to include the Mods and Staff in some of the future contests, guy's like 3.0charlie and sswilson have kept this Team going since Day 1...

It'll be interesting to see how much of a "temporary" increase we get to team PPD out of this. As the word gets out, I'd expect to see a fair bit of a spike in a few days.
