Verset

Well guys, it is my pleasure to once again welcome people from all social echelons of the LTT forum to the second official Linus Tech Tips FOLDING MONTH!

 

We welcome folding titans such as @Den-Fi who is the sitting champion, @Gorgon who will be eyeing up the top spot this year with the intention of dethroning the king and @_Rlocke who has promised to give us a good show with more hardware to throw around this year. LMG staff such as @jakkuh_t will hopefully be joining us along with moderators such as @TVwazhere and @leadeater. @Tomerrs is nowhere to be seen though, and with his startling leap to second it will be a real shame without him.

 

We have seen the biggest number of participants to date sign up  for any folding event so far. I'd really like to take a moment to thank each one of you; from guys with multi RTX rigs right down to the CPU folders, all are welcome and appreciated here at folding month!

 

It has been an exciting year for tech, with the release of RTX cards we are seeing productions numbers that are seemingly unreal to what we had only a few short years ago, along with high core count chips from AMD at affordable prices and the falling prices of HEDT platforms from Intel's previous generations make it ever more easy to get yourself set up with some decent hardware and start smashing out the WUs under the orange banner of team LTT! 

 

Could we all give thanks to the team this year, we gain nothing out of this event other than your gratitude so please give a hand to: @palespartan who folding wouldn't exist without, @Gorgon who helps facilitate the stats handling, @Imbellis who will be offering a secondary source of production data,  @Ithanul and @dean_21 who will assist with data validation, and finally myself, who will be working hard behind the scenes building the datasheet, organising data and writing these wonderful blogs. 

 

I'm feeling a little rusty with the writes up so please excuse me getting back into the swing of things as the event goes on. We have the most advanced datasheet to date when compared with folding week 2017, folding month 2018 and the summer folding sprint of 2019. With multiple methods of validating data, increased redundancy of data fetching and more hands to share the load we are hoping there won't be a repeat of last years mishaps.  Here's to hoping for a good clean event. But, if you do notice any errors or mistakes please do feel free to drop me a PM then we can investigate and get it sorted as quickly as possible. 

 

One thing I have to say is once the month is over I really hope to see you guys continuing to fold. We have always punched well above our weight class when it comes to the number of active folders we have compared to the number of points we can churn out on a daily basis. When I first started folding the team was in decline, but since the first folding month we have exploded, and I hope to see that continue into the future. 

 

As usual just a little PSA, we are a small tight-knit community here, so if someone helps you out don't forget to thank them and give them a reaction, Also always remember we fold as a team first and for individual glory second. So be kind, be humble, here at Folding Month 2019!

 

With only a few days to go we have been working hard behind the scenes, building the datasheet, advertising the event and delegating tasks. But the time for planning is coming to an end, and the time for action is fast approaching. These last few days are crucial, so get checking stability, tuning clocks, running general maintenance and prepare to push your hardware right to the limits of what they were designed to do.  

 

Let us all bask in the warmth of our folding rigs, listening to the pur Scream of the fans blasting away and be proud of just what we can accomplish when we come together.

My goal is to just not be at the bottom, lol. This is my first folding event and my rig shakes in the shadow of your alls. My Grams passed away last year due to Parkinson's complications so I am excited to be helping a tiny bit to contribute to research.

Top 15 for me, but we will see

I was going to say that but if your already 15 back I might be pushed out of the top 20. This is going to be amazing hoping the the 10 billion points!!!! Also @Gorgon switched back to his war icon I think its getting serious. lol

That's the little statue I got with my ID Software Collectors edition back when my reaction times weren't shot and I could actually frag 13-year olds

If we continued production as we are we would hit 7.5billion points, but lets be honest some of these guys are just getting started, plus it seems like many are still waiting for QRB to kick in... Going to be a good month (5 weeks)

I'm sitting at an average of approximately 2 million points per 24 hours, as long as nothing goes wrong. I'm not going to smash anybody at the top, but hopefully this keeps me running with some of the bigger boys. I spent a lot of money on something for myself, so it's absolutely fantastic to have this way to use it to give back to the rest of the world!

Can we get a fresh report of people who are signed up? I'm worried I've done something wrong although in due i filled in everything i found ?

 

and yeah, if i can manage top 100 I'll be chuffed, but the competition this year looks fierce!

@Gorgon will be posting an updated list sometime in the next 12-24 hours we are hoping.

You and I both. Might be able to pull something out of my sleeve though... Huge thanks for the blogs, I loved this last year :)

No worries! Going to be interesting as I get beck into the swing of this.

 

But I think this is the best opening I've done yet... Technically my 3rd 'prelude' as I did so for the summer sprint too.

 

Also already thinking about what to call next year's opening remarks, we've had prelude and now verser, hmm..

Shush I'm dyslexic and it's 01:30 here. Not to mention I've been up since 4am with the baby.

 

Fun days!
