Unless you are in Australia. Then it's the opposite.

I had to take last week off and in my absence, there have been a few milestones worthy of note. They were noted in last weeks thread about no update. Thank you to all who posted there.

While this may be posted elsewhere, I received an anonymous tip that we have a NEW #1 point leader. There are caveats but it is a major achievement none the less. WhitehawkEQ has more points than any other user name. That's where the rub is but it doesn't make this less impressive. There are users on the team with more points but under multiple user name. WhitehawkEQ has passed the highest earning HayseK user name. To be clear, HayesK is still the #1 earner but WhitehawkEQ has surpassed the total points earned under a single user name. I'd like to see anyone other than HayseK do that. Can't do it can you? Me neither. 🤣 Great job.

WhitehawkEQ also surpassed 40 billion. That gets two "Woots" and multiple capital 1's. WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!!!!! Side thought: Is that where the bank gets its name? Is "Capital One" just "!"? Can you say I bank at "!"?
"Where do you bank at?"
"I mean, where do you deposite your money?"
"Never mind then."

OK. Time to move on from that.

Summer is leaving and leaving with a bang in my part of the world. Multiple thunder storms. A defective used Ubiquiti switch and several power outages has lowered my production far more than I like. Hopefully things are going well enough for you.

In the world, we are still #8. WOOT! However... and this one surprised me a bit, we are chasing 0 (zero) teams. None. We are a threat to no one. Couple that with EPFL still going strong enough to chase us. RUN! Looking at our graph on EOC, we had a slump and look to be getting back on track. As mentioned above, my production took a major hit this week but is coming back. Plus, I have production in reserve when it gets a little cooler out. What about you? What do you have planned this fall for folding? I want to know.

On the individual World front:
WhitehawkEQ is #34 in the world.
HayesK_ALL is #35.
HayesK_GRC is #69. Don't laugh nor snicker. It's just a number.
torin3 is #77.
dfonda is #84.
Holdolin is #95.

Great work guys.

The team is currently fielding 31 active folders. If you can add to that number, we'd really appreciate it. Any amount of folding counts. Any! Our ppd for all active folders is 7.6 million. Right now I'm below that number thus bringing it down. I'll get back above the Ave. to help pull it up. Note: We do not care if your folding numbers bring this number down. We don't care. What we do care about is having active team mates to fold with us. Any amount you want to contribute is a great amount. Showing this number then talking about should not mean to say that it is important. It's not important, just a fun point to orient "my" goals. YMMV.

Top 14 are earning 1 million ppd or more.
Top 6 are earning 10 million ppd or more.
Top 4 are earning 20 million ppd or more.
Top 3 are earning 30 million ppd or more.
Top 1 is earning 80 million ppd or more.

As mentioned earlier, WhitehawkEQ has earned 40 BILLION!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!!! He stands alone in this bracket according to EOC. Well worthy of accolades. Great job.

OK. That's enough of my words. Get out there and show the world who we are.

Ok Abbott and Costello :)
This was written as if Abbott and Costello were still alive and using computers :) enjoy
ABBOTT: Ultimate SuperDuper Computer Store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Yes, I'm setting up a home office in the den, and I'm thinking of buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name is Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name is Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Does it get stuffy?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What do I see when I look out the windows?
ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software that runs on Windows?
COSTELLO: No, on the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses. You know, run a business. What have you got?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommended something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: Okay, what did you recommend for my office?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office.
ABBOTT: Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office and it already has windows! Let's say I'm sitting at my computer, and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
COSTELLO: If I'm writing a proposal, I'm going to need lots of words. But what program do I load?
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: The Word in Office.
COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: Which word in "office for windows?"
ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue W.
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your big W if you don't give me a straight answer. Let's forget about words for a minute. What do I need if I want to watch a movie over the Internet?
ABBOTT: RealOne.
COSTELLO: Maybe a real movie, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. But what do I need to watch it?
ABBOTT: RealOne.
COSTELLO: If it's a long movie I'll also want to watch reels two, three and four. Can I watch reel four?
ABBOTT: Of course.
COSTELLO: Great! With what?
ABBOTT: RealOne.
COSTELLO: Okay, so I'm sitting at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?
ABBOTT: You click the blue 1.
COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?
ABBOTT: The blue 1.
COSTELLO: Is that different from the blue W?
ABBOTT: Of course it is. The blue 1 is RealOne. The blue W is Word.
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: But there's three words in "office for windows!"
ABBOTT: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.
ABBOTT: Yes, although to be fair there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words.
COSTELLO: And that word is the real one?
ABBOTT: No. RealOne has nothing to do with Word. RealOne isn't even part of Office.
COSTELLO: Never mind; I don't want to get started with that again. But I also need something for bank accounts, loans, and so on. What do you have to help me track my money?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOTT: No, not really. It comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: What comes bundled with my computer?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: Money comes bundled with my computer?
ABBOTT: Exactly. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer at no extra charge? How much money do I get?
ABBOTT: Just one copy.
COSTELLO: I get a copy of money. Isn't that illegal?
ABBOTT: No. We have a license from Microsoft to make copies of Money.
COSTELLO: Microsoft can license you to make money?
ABBOTT: Why not? They own it.
COSTELLO: Well, it's great that I'm going to get free money, but I'll still need to track it. Do you have anything for managing your money?
ABBOTT: Managing Your Money? That program disappeared years ago.
COSTELLO: Well, what do you sell in its place?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: You sell money?
ABBOTT: Of course. But if you buy a computer from us, you get it for free.
COSTELLO: That's all very wonderful, but I'll be running a business. Do you have any software for, you know, accounting?
ABBOTT: Simply Accounting.
COSTELLO: Probably, but it might get a little complicated.
ABBOTT: If you don't want Simply Accounting, you might try M.Y.O.B.
COSTELLO: M.Y.O.B.? What does that stand for?
ABBOTT: Mind Your Own Business.
COSTELLO: I beg your pardon?
ABBOTT:! No, that would be I.B.Y.P. I said M.Y.O.B.
COSTELLO: Look, I just need to do some accounting for my home business. You know--accounting? You do it with money.
ABBOTT: Of course you can do accounting with Money. But you may need more.
COSTELLO: More money?
ABBOTT: More than Money. Money can't do everything.
COSTELLO: I don't need a sermon! Okay, let's forget about money for the moment. I'm worried that my computer might... what's the word? Crash. And if my computer crashes, what can I use to restore my data?
COSTELLO: Okay. I'm worried about my computer smashing and I need something ! to restore re my data. What do you recommend?
COSTELLO: How many times do I have to repeat myself?
ABBOTT: I've never asked you to repeat yourself. All I said was GoBack.
COSTELLO: How can I go back if I haven't even been anywhere? Okay, I'll go back. What do I need to write a proposal?
COSTELLO: But I'll need lots of words to write a proposal.
ABBOTT: No, you only need one Word-the Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: But there's three words in...Oh, never mind.
ABBOTT: Hello? Hello? Customers! Why do they always hang up on me? Oh well. Ultimate SuperDuper Computer Store. Can I help you?
