Chimp Challenge 2011: Changes to Rules


Dear All,

Discussion is currently underway on how Chimp Challenge 2011 will look.

At the moment, a separate target for each team is being proposed, based on a baseline from our PPD during (probably) November/December/January.

Is this something we're OK with? It will level the playing field considerably, which is a good thing in my opinion.

NB: If you suggest an alternative, make it a very very simple one. There's no room for really complex maths, really.

My opinion, after the way it shook out last year, is "meh". I'll switch over my clients if we field a team, but I won't be as excited about it as I was last year. Different point goals for different teams may make it more even, but I don't see it making it more exciting.

If the details pan out to be feasible, and the other teams buy-in, then yea- let's do this.

HA! EVGA has been hitting 20 million PPD... Their goal line is going to be set so far out that we will easily crush them due to us being able to mobilize much more quickly.

Damn Dave, I resemble that remark.

But did you say free beer? If it's Guinness, when do we start?

Wasn't here last year, so I can't provide any constructive feedback. However I'll be happy to assist in any contest endeavors.

I can help. Should be able to spare for a few weeks, GTX 470, 9600GS, PII 940@3.3-3.4ish, 955@3.5ish, and a new 2500K at around 4.5-4.8ish (i hope ) Also add in my work machine a I5 650. (Don't worry I work in IT and its my personal work machine)

What account will we fold under?

It will be the same as last year, T32Monkeys.

I'll be distributing the username/passkey info in due course.
