Well almost, he's still got another 532 points to go. I'm sure he's gotten there already! ^*^

Thanks to the rest of the team to continue folding, we are catching some big folks who haven't kept up. Man, being in spot 275 out of at least 200K teams makes me proud of this relatively small team! ^*^ :drinking

I think the issue that most teams see is keeping members active, which was our biggest issue for a while. It seems that despite the fact that we only have a small handful of relatively active people, they stay active and don't stop where other teams will have a lot of points really quickly and then half the people just stop. My points are probably going to drop off significantly at some point for a week or so as I'm going to try and encode a few movies, so folding will take a back seat for a little bit.

congratulations Kevin Image

It would be great if we could pull in a few more members to the folding team so that when one of us has a problem the team points do not drop so dramatically.

Ya, Mark is absolutely right. People leave for many reasons and I'm seeing more and more folks leaving the fold these days due to electricity costs. I had not really realized that that was a big expense as our power is the cheapest on the continent as it's mainly hydro and is provincially controlled. I'll have to figure out how much that is for me, I'm curious now.
