Day Twenty Three - Take A Moment



Good evening folks, I am the first to admit that I am not at my best and unfortunately today is one of those days. For reasons that are not needed here, I'm struggling a wee bit. But the event, the event marches on and waits for no man. So here we are, another blog in a long line of blogs, both past and future. But first, we have yet another message of prizes, this time it comes from LTT themselves! They are offering a UniFi Dream Machine Pro (lightly used) and a surprise unifi switch to the prize pool. It is incredible to see all the support we have gotten this year and I hope it is a sign of further support for future events and for the folding team as a whole. 


Today I wish to take a moment for us all to take a pause, to appreciate the beauty of the world, the beauty of life and the beauty of humanity. I wish to take a moment for us all to think of those we fold for, to think of those we love, of those who are battling to preserve their life, to think of those we have lost. For many of us, the reason we partake in the project that is folding, in these events, in the team is to try to help other families not feel the pain and loss that we have. We fold in their name, now and always. 


Now, with that passed, we shall move on to looking at how the team has performed. As a team, we have managed to produce 2,071,475,100 points over the last 24 hours, which that means although it is on the lower side, it is still very much a massive improvement over the last event. For week four of the event we have produced 4,173,695,853 and for the event as a whole we have bagged a massive 48,979,388,889 points. Honestly, I can not stress enough how proud I am to see the team doing so well and to see the number of people who have not only signed up but have gone on to actually fold. As for the daily breakdown, the top 10 did 39.53% of the total, the top 50 produced 68.39% and the top 100 managed 84.83% points. When looking at what that reflects as points it looks like, 818,863,944 for the top 10, 1,416,771,986 for the top 50 and 1,757,313,164 points for the top 100. On the work unit front, we managed a total of 5,434 Work Units, a marked decline from my last blog post. For the week thus far that goes up to 11,018 Work Units and finally, for the event as a whole, we have managed to fold through 131,279 Work Units. A truly incredible number that represents hope for many, that represents the slow march of process. 


Now how are the team looking, The top of the table is rather devoid of any sense of excitement or thrill so we will promptly report the stats and move on to something more juicy. Mxyzptlk is in first place with 3,151,808,926 points. Shlouski is in second place with 2,600,910,338, followed by miker07 who is the last on the podium with 2,349,594,647 points. Justaphf continues his slow march on the podium with 2,334,878,111 points followed somewhat distantly by jakkuh_t who is sitting in 5th place with 2,132,372,317 points. Alex Atkin UK is in 6th with 1,699,827,916 points, Gorgon is up next in 7th with 1,519,421,592 points. firedfly had his worst day on record but takes 8th with 1,148,598,346 points and _Rlocke seems to be gunning for his rank, taking up 9th with 1,111,097,217 points. Finally, we have the honourable gatekeeper, Fun fact with my dyslexia it took me 3 years of these events to be able to consistently spell honourable. vsteel is taking up the post once again with 807,007,575 points to his name. 


Now let's find us some excitement to look at, we have MatchMaker22, who takes the rank of 140 after climbing 6 ranks, he has managed an impressive 62,087,464 points so far during the event. I have to say I'm disappointed they have yet to reach out with the love of my life, a pretty poor matchmaker if you ask me. TMan95 is another person who gained six ranks to take over 149th with 54,015,149 points. He is outproducing everyone around him and is likely to keep up his claim through the ranks going forward. JustComputerUnit, a name I don't think I have mentioned yet during this event gained five ranks to fill 175th with 38,023,184 points. parzival0741 gained an incredible ten ranks to take over 191st with 31,809,109 points. sazrocks, a name I'm rather familiar with has had the biggest gain today of 12 ranks to take over 225th with 21,120,918 points.
