A few members of the Folding Team are folding under Pete's username for one week in his memory. We are doing quite well, and anyone is free to join us. If anyone has any questions about how, feel free to contact me via private message, or any of our other wonderful Team 32 Folding Mentors.

Yeah, I miss Pete too. He was a damn fine person and always was ready to help a person out. Our team and the world lost a very good man when he passed on.:(

Oh my god! I had no idea. I've been a bit busy with RL for the last year and a half...this saddens me, Pete was a GREAT guy and an awesome member. He will be and certainly is missed greatly.
RIP Pete, and Fold On! :attn:
