Folding Month V Awards Ceremony

So first off I would like to apologise for the delay on this one. As many of you know life is challenging for me at the moment but hey we got there eventually. I thank you all for your continued understanding. I'm sure it gets worse every year!    Here we are at the end of our fifth event, A massive thank you to our six event fanatics, who have been the first to claim the five year badge for these events. @RollinLower @GOTSpectrum @sazrocks @TVwazhere @Dissitesuxba11s and @Spotty are t

Day Thirty Four - It's The Final Countdown!

Well here we are, the final 24 hours are here, now, it feels as if it was only yesterday when I was getting this event started and the writing the first blog post. It always seems to go so fast, and I'm not going to lie I'm somewhat happy to see the end so I can start sleeping at a normal time again!    miker07 is sitting on that throne, it has to be said he is still giving it his all right down to the last day. He takes the rank of first with 3,611,221,951 points. Our green friend how

Day Thirty Three - The Days Are Dwindling

So here we are, just two days left of the event and it is looking like we aren't going to see any major last minute upsets this event like those of the kind we have seen in previous events.    miker07 is sitting on the throne with 3,495,956,728 points, he is doing incredibly well, seeing almost three and one half billion points so far, we will have a new high score. But as with all high scores, it will be beaten... maybe sooner, maybe later, but it will someday be topped. Shlouski is

Day Thirty Two - Move Along, Nothing To See Here

Well today has been a quiet one, not much to see on the ranks so let's just get right into that.    miker07 is the clear king it is completely decided by this point. He is sitting on the throne with 3,422,734,677 points. Shlouski is certainly going to be taking hone the silver for this event taking the rank of second with 3,101,236,510 points. Mxyzptlk is sitting in third place, we see him take the rank with a large margin either side of him. He takes the rank with 1,937,710,515 points

Day Thirty - The Fallen King Reaches New Heights

So the final days are upon us, and we have to be thinking about just how many of our participants will cross the billion point threshold. By my rough calculations we have one more pretty much certain and then we have Alex, who is cutting it close but could join that elite club.    miker07 seems to have had a little trouble today, that or he's already on his victory parade by this point. He takes the throne with 3,219,410,343 points. Shlouski, the failed king, has passes another amazing

Day Twenty Nine - A Brief Look

Hey guys, so I'm just going to point out anything interesting because I just need to unload my brain, or as you people like to call it, sleep.    Slave2school has climbed up to 13th with 476,106,433 points. He could see himself another rank or two higher before the end of the event. BondiBlue has gained to find himself in 21st with 288,829,961 points and Calador gained a rank also to sit in 23rd. Ir8munk33 wiped the floor with me and 5 other people today taking the rank of 34th with 17

Day Twenty Eight - Long Live The King

WEll it seems the battle for the throne has fizzled out, it is not all but impossible for our green friend to take the throne. So please join in with me... Long Live The King! He is the first person ever to pass three billion points during a folding event.    miker07 is the new king, there is no way he can be anything but the new King, currently taking the throne with 3,000,195,970 points, it was looking like our green friend could make a challenge, but in the end it seem Shlouski who

Day Twenty Six - The Battle Rages

WEll we can see that our little green friend Shlouski has had an amazing day and this could be the start of him retaking the throne. But for him to maintain such vast productions rates is not cheap and it will be interesting to see how miker07 responds.    miker07 continues to sit on the throne with 2,759,803,985 points, an incredible total so far. It seems he is very much the man to beat and even when he is pretty safely at the top his production has not skipped a beat. Shlouski who i

Day Twenty Five - Another Billion Point User

Well it looks like our green friend Shlouski had a good day today, but it seems he will not be retaking the throne without some extra power. Stay tuned to see if he can manage it or if he will be relegated to a lackluster silver place.    miker07 is looking more and more, as time goes on like he will be one to be crowned when all is said and done. He is sitting on the throne with 2,631,603,281 points. Only time will tell if Shlouski will be able to take the on the new king or if he wil

Day Twenty Three - The Final Battle For The Throne

Shlouski seems to be stepping up, but miker seems to have sensed a change in the winds and reacted in kind. If we are to see the rise of the fallen king, we will have to see substantial changes in output in the very near future.    miker07 has had an incredible day today, he has passed the old all time high seen in any other folding event of date and i showing no signs of slowing down. He is sitting on the throne with 2,398,852,462 points. Shlouski has stepped up this update giving his

Day Twenty Two - A Slow Day

Have to say, people are dropping like flies... interesting, we have seen a pretty low production today of less than one billion points. I have to say you guys are terrible at this lmfao. It is supposed to go up not down!   miker07 is unsurprisingly the person we see sitting on the throne, he takes the number one rank with 2,268,825,107 points. As the day continue to pass we can see that Mr. miker is looking to sail through unchallenged. There is only one person who even remotely has a

Day Twenty One - Another Day, Another Billion

We are now into the second half of the event, and this is the time where things usually slow down, the points keep coming but the ranks are much more cumbersome to navigate and big changes to production rates are much less common. With that said, we are right about the perfect time for people to snag new GPUs, between the new Nvidia cards and the vast number of second hand cards to be had there is still much that can change.    miker07 is the one sitting on the throne, he takes the fir

Day Twenty - Two Billion

Well it seems we have had yet another quiet day here, there isn't any massive changes to be seen but we will see how this goes. We do have one thing to celebrate, we have an incredible achievement to see here, our first two billion points of the event, only once before have we seen this. He took the throne with 2.3 billion points in 2020, the first and only time we have seen someone break the two billion barrier before today. We will have to see where we end up at the end but I feel a new record

Day nineteen - Wake up, wake up if it's all you do

I've gotta say guys you are not making this interesting at all. Have you all decided you are comfortable or something?    miker07 is once again sitting on the frozen throne with 1,923,024,282 points, but it has to be said his place of wielding Frostmourne is not cemented and we could see an upset from Shlouski. He takes the number two rank with 1,847,380,642 point, meaning everything is still in play for the fallen king. If he can find the power and best Miker he could be the one to be

Day Seventeen - Tired Spec Today

I'm not going to lie to you all, today I have been writing for most of the day, so I am not quite as energetic as I usually am. But I will try my best to get a post out even if it's less than interesting in the ranks.    miker07 is once again sitting on the throne, the new king, in all his 1,674,281,752 point glory is a beauty to behold. We have the fallen king, Shlouski up next, taking the number two spot and seeming like he has no intention or capability to retake the throne. He has

Day Sixteen - cbigfoot turns his hand at writing

Well ladies and gents trying my hand at this… @GOTSpectrum is asking me(Cbigfoot) to write todays blog post so he can get some grub. Looks like we hit a new production High of 1,107,293,381 for the day. Can we hit 1.5 billion in one day before the end of the event? Stay tuned to find out.   There appears to have been a slight disturbance in the force in the top 10 today. But let’s start at the top in 1st miker07 has apparently enabled plaidmode on his engines and has Racked up 125milli

Day fifteen - The Fall Of The King

Well it seems the king has fallen, Long live the king! There is a secret recording of @miker07 as he stormed the castle! Recording For the first time, on this day, the 15th day of the event, we lost a king, but do not fear, as one king falls another must rise. miker07 takes the throne for his first day during this event and it seems he could very well make himself comfortable. He takes the frozen throne with 1,431,155,705 points. Shlouski, the fallen king, has been dethroned and must not

Day Fourteen - On The Eve Of The Fall Of A King

Another day, another slaughter by Miker in regards to production. He has once again out-produced everyone else in the event. There have been very few major changes this update so lets get to it. P.S. if you are not currently folding, or are accidentally folding for another team, this is your last call to start. Check those machines!    Shlouski has managed to keep hold of the throne with the skin of his teeth, three million points may seem a lot to all of us, but when you are producing

Day Thirteen - Miker Makes a Move

Miker07 is pulling out all the stops here to secure himself a throne all of his own, only time will tell if he can keep it up. Alex Atkin UK is really working here with his new hardware.   Shlouski is once again the person we are seeing on the throne, but it has to be said, he is not looking very secure in that place right about now, we know he is pretty much tapped out around the 100m per day mark, he takes the rank with 1,222,248,239 points. miker07 is really showing us what he can d

Well we did it guys, the stars aligned, Alex got underway with the reinforcements and we have had a whole lotta luck with good WUs. All in all, well done ladles and gentle spoons, for passing the 1 billion day mark by almost 90m points.    Shlouski is sitting on the throne with 1,121,976,147 points, but maybe not for much longer, it seems his time at the top is coming to an end, Miker07 has finally shown us what he is capable of, I'm sure we all believed he had it in him, but it's a sh

Day Eleven - Our Little Boy Is All Grown Up

The man, the only man to see a 100m point day so far during this event is all grown up, taking his first billion points on the 11th day of the event. Truly incredible, I remember when one billion in one event would be something impossible. But now, here we are seeing it in less than two weeks. Part of me can't wait to see what kind of power we will have in five more years.    Shlouski is the man, the man to beat, and it seems like there is no one among us who can beat him. Although I h

Day Ten - Silent Night... Folding Night... All is Calm...

Well well, ladles and gentlespoon, it seems Miker has dropped off a wee bit. But overall we are still see impressive numbers, I think it is fair to say we won't be getting any billion point days during this event.    Shlouski is once again sitting on that throne, he's been there so long by this point I think he and the throne are becoming one, anyway, we say a solid day making above 96 million points. He takes the rank today with 928,933,876 points. I guess we will be seeing our first

Day Nine - He's Only Gone And Done It

Well well, isn't it about time we saw a true 100m day from Shlouski, That is the headliner for this update, it's certainly not the highest production we have ever seen during a folding event but is still mightily impressive. I have been watching the stats closely today as something piqued my interest, I really thought Miker was going to hit the century production mark on the same day. But alas, we may have to wait to see him ascend to such heights.    Shlouski is the true king today, g

Day Eight - 'Storm Igor' is fizzling out

Last year the title for day eight was  'Storm Igor' Rages On... It seems a title that is not appropriate for this years first day of the second week.    It has to be said that it is looking like our 'soon to be king' is just about fully tapped out, struggling to get that 100m day he is so looking forward to. He would only need another 4.5m, but that isn't all that small when you are already giving it your all. He sits on the throne today with 731,659,045 points. miker07 is up next sitt

Day Seven - Igor falters!

This is gonna be a real quick one.    No changes other than one rank changes can be seen on th rankings today until you start looking below rank 30. Anyway let's have a rapid look over the top ranks.    Shlouski is still on top sitting on the throne with 636,119,656 points, but it has to be said his 100m point day is still elusive for him. Up next we have miker07 with 596,050,047 points. Igor_Sinelnikov had a sorry day today but he remains in the number three spot with 427,45
