Countdown to Event Stop

 

 

ATTENTION Extreme Team Folding Participants: Please make sure you do not fold anything under your ETF GPU Passkey except for the GPU you are participating in the event with. You need to use a 2nd passkey to fold anything else in this event.

 

In the spirit of folding for the cause and good old friendly competition between members, we are hosting another folding competition. For more details please see below.

 

How to participate:

During the competition you must be folding for Team 239902
You must post in this thread with "IN" followed by your folding username.

 

Prizes:

Folding Time Prizes:

tbd
 

Excluded from Prizes:

No!


All "Folding Time" prizes will require your username/passkey to be given to the donator, this will not give them any of your personal information, it just let's them be able to contribute full points to your username.  Passkeys need at least 10 full Work Units to start getting the full Quick Return Bonus.  Alternatively, you could setup another passkey for your [email protected] username with a different email address and fold your first 10 units on that.  This would still put the points towards your username, but they would also be tracked by a different passkey.

Please note all winners must claim within 30 days from announcement of the winners.

 

 

Current Event Stats:

 

 

 

Note: Stats are updated every hour at XX:25 for previous hour of submitted Work Units.  The first update at 00:25 AM UTC will set the "zero" for your points based on all the WU's submitted up to 12 AM UTC.

 

 

Good luck to all!

I have not folded in a long time.  Is there a crash course to get this ready to go for the competition? or did I wait too long?

Pretty much just download the client, get a pass key from [email protected], start the client, enter your identity, pass key, and our team number. Be sure to tell us what your folding name is just in case it's different than what your username is here.

 

Keep in mind that the time zone for the event is in UTC time zone, so for us it starts Friday. See the countdown timer if it is confusing.

Brody_Walker is my folding name, I set up two passkeys and have it running on one right now.  I have it running on GPU and CPU now, is that correct?

My first two WUs are done, I'm officially in last place on their board haha.  So for the competition, I just need to run the client and do nothing else right.  I can just leave this on forever technically and all will be well?

 

Yes indeed, it's that simple.

 

Also IN as CptAsian.

So in the monthly competitions you only fold one GPU?

The ETF and the monthly foldathon require separate passkeys. You may fold as much or whatever you like for the monthly compo.

Yeah like Avacado said, for these 48 hour foldathons, just let it rip and fold as much devices as you want.

 

We have a 24/7 competition here also called the Extreme Team. That's where you use 1 piece of hardware on 1 key. 

 

I think the ETF team members should know better by now so maybe we can delete this verbage from the 48 hour competitions, but occasionally a veteran ETF member will still goof this up like my old team captain @Supercrumpet and throw off our ETF scores 🤣🤣🤣

I'm curious what this is going to do to my electric bill, Also my wife was like where did all the laptops go lol. 

It's going to go up a few dollars, depending on how much hardware you are folding for the 48 hours, and how you tuned it.

 

Sometimes we get cash prizes from donors here to offset this.

 

For our extreme team, which is folding 24/7, a lot of us are using low power hardware which helps.

 

Be sure those laptops stay cool 😎
