Folding Giveaway 6 - The Last Stand (9 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 12-April-2005  15:23:24 (GMT +10) - by Agg

From our Folding@Home team leader, Bollocks: It's time to make a stand and fight for the top spot on the Folding ladder. I present to you Giveaway 6 which will hopefully encourage a few more members of the OCAU forums to take up the extreme sport of Folding@Home. Folding is a dangerous sport that many have tried and failed to master, but with perseverance and dedication it can be a rewarding experience.

If you feel that Freestyle Folding is cool and you would like to give it a shot, sign up in the nomination thread here in the forums. You will have to execute and few tricks to qualify for the draw, first up you need to download through the fat pipe the required gear to get you on the track. Once you have right equipment check this cool guide for the correct way to get it happening. Once that is all in place its time to show us a few tricks (WARNING!!! you will need to wear all the required protective equipment before commencing, adequate chip coolers and box fans are a definite requirement along with a reliable pipe connection). You will be judged on amplitude (amount of points), endurance and creativity. When it comes to the handing out the trophies, those that have shown enough skill to cut it in this most demanding of sports will be pleased with their rewards. Giveaway6 could be the beginning of a new career for someone and you never know you could become one of the legends of the sport like norgs, plext or DGROMs.

Prizes for Giveaway6 have been donated by Computer Alliance, LowNoisePC, chainbolt, Agg and FFF.
