Sign up to the folding team today and help research diseases caused by misfolding proteins.
The Custom PC
folding team has been doing very well recently, climbing up to sixth place
among the world's top folding teams. However, team 35947 needs your help now more than ever.
Earlier this year we were invited to take part in the annual Chimps Challenge
to see which team can produce the most points in the shortest amount of time.
To avoid the embarrassment of coming last, and to make sure team our great team doesn't earn the dubious honour of the 'Monkey's Paw', we need as many of our folders to join the Chimps Challenge later today.
You can join in with the Chimps Challenge by temporarily changing your folding username to 'CustomBitChimps' for the duration of the challenge. This is the username that all members of team 35947 should submit completed work units under.
If you're running either the SMP CPU or bigadv SMP CPU clients, you'll also need a passkey to register your bonus points; this can be supplied by sending a PM to our team captain coolamasta
on the forum.
The Chimps Challenge kicks off today at 20:00 UK time (12:00 Pacific Daylight Time). If you live in another time zone then don't worry; you can easily calculate the starting time using this helpful event timer
The Chimps Challenge goes on for two weeks, during which you can follow the progress of all the teams taking part on the official CC stats page
, created by the helpful chaps at Hardware Cannucks.
All that remains to be said is good luck to our team, and to all the others too, as we're all helping to contribute to a greater understanding of diseases such as Alzheimer's.
