A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED DURING THE MARCH EVENT!!!!!​

Howdy All! This thread is for discussion of the contest, and status updates!

The Rosetta Team holds events at various times throughout the year to help forward science along a bit quicker and to give us a boost in the Standings.
We'll also be racing our old nemesis UK BOINC Team to 15th Place. They've just taken our #3 spot in the RAC standings, and I think we'll be taking that back thank you very much.

Event Goals

Our ultimate goal as a team is to reach 15th Place in the Total Points Standings. This event and the event goals will be instrumental in getting us there.

The Event Goals this year are threefold:

1. To reach 300,000 in team RAC. ($100 Gift Certificate)

2. To reach 15th Place in total points. ($100 Gift Certificate)

3. To beat UK BOINC Team to 15th Place. ($100 Gift Certificate)

As each of these goals are reached, the corresponding bonus prize will be unlocked and added to the prize pool!
Yep, the goals are pretty lofty, but if there's one thing I've learned about these Events, it's to never underestimate the members of overclockers.com!!!

There is only one condition! That is that our RAC does not drop below it's initial level on 18-Feb-11.

Team,
Remember to enlist whoever you can from outside the team as well. We need to really give it this time if we're gonna fight off these damn knights. :)

How can we donate to the prize pool, and how soon do we have to make those donations?

We have a few weeks before the first prize goes out, and technically till the end of the contest to donate a prize if you so choose. PM me if you're interested. Thank you.


Notification has been listed in the SETI forums (via Pete) and the [email protected] forums. Hopefully we'll see some additional traction from both DC teams to assist in this Rosetta contest.

PS -- How many Rosetta contests usually occur annually?

It seems as though [email protected] is having issues getting march madness off the ground this year so anyone from [email protected] or seti for that matter who want to help us for this event are most welcome. I would suggest though, that we give proportional support when either of those teams get events organized.

Rosetta typically only has one event per year, but we recently got taunted by another team we are about to pass and they are picking up production to keep us at bay, so I'm enlisting a bit of help to show them where the bears sh*t in the buckwheat.
Once the front page announcement is up, I'll head over to their forums and throw down the gauntlet.

Oh, I wasn't aware of the March Madness issues. I'm guessing it's due to the recently heated battle between some of the top-tier teams. However, I'm getting OT here.

I'll head over there once the announcement for the contest is on the front page and throw down the gauntlet. Then hopefully they'll be motivated to take measures to make it a decent race, and we'll get some good back an forth going.

Remember everyone: The idea is to taunt them into doing more science (ie: precisely what they just did to us), and nothing more. Once they see that we've taken the bait and countered their taunt with a Team event, we should see their production increase rapidly as well.

We're currently 68,861 points behind and gaining on the Knights who say Ni!
Our RAC is climbing and is currently 34.8K higher than theirs, however, their RAC has been steadily climbing since the 12th of January and they show no signs of slowing, so they will be no pushover I'm sure.
This should be a good race if they decide to put the hammer down!

As it sits right now, we will pass [email protected] in 0.68 days, and The Knights who say Ni 0.28 days later, putting us in 18th place!
After that, we will need another 68 days at our current rate to pass the almost stagnant XS Team. Is it really going to take us that long???!! COME ON TEAM!!!
The Knights haven't made much in the way of gains over the past day, and I see in their forum there's alot of humming and hawing about whether or not they want to stay with Rosetta blah blah. So we may need to give up on those chumps and find another team to race. I'll give em another couple of days.

I guess I'll have to show my ugly face again, been awhile since I've done any folding. I'll just have to dust off some old rigs and give it a toss....
