Just over 6 hours in and we are in a very creditable 2nd (0f 20)position, mainly due to an awesome bunker dump by McShane! :-)
4 of us are in the top 10.
This is a short comp, 4 days exactly, so the good start is vital & our aim should be a podium finish, preferably silver but bronze at least.
Go for it guys!

Would you settle for 4th? It looks like that is where we are headed :(

I'll probably be here for the whole challenge. It is taking longer to get my Zika badge than I anticipated.

Certainly Gold or Silver are probably beyond us. :(

The French are gaining alarmingly but not crushingly so. And we only have to hold out for another 2days & 19hrs! :shock:

Crunch on & hope for the best! All is not lost. Especially if you are still with us Bryan: No pressure, mind. :wink:

Indeed...

26hrs further on and we still have 3rd place in the challenge. The cushion between us and the French is down to a rather uncomfortable 62K! :shock:
On the plus side we are up to 145th now! with 144th imminent! :-)
Whatever: Crunch on & dig deep & hope for the best! :-)

We have lost 3rd to L'Alliance Francophone. :(
But our prospects of a podium finish are not entirely extinguished. :-)
Gruppo Italiano Boinc are in second place but are only 91K ahead of us with just 17 hrs left to run. 16hrs ago they were 328K ahead of us so unless we slow down or they speed up we are clearly headed for third. So no let up guys! The game is still on!

I just added another 28 threads. Not sure if it is in time but at least it will add some more credits to WCG.

We're back in third. We can do it!

To be fair to Gruppo Italiano Boinc though, its one guy and he's done an incredible job so we shouldn't feel at all bad if we were to slip and have him take 3rd.

McShane, Pete, finished in 3rd place. Apparently he changed his name and team right at the end but he ran for TSBT the whole time.

Since this is the second time this happened, I am going to remain Cruncher Pete from now on. Actually, I changed after 0700 Local time which is 3 hours AFTER the close of the challenge, i.e 2100UTC. I checked the challenge stats at that time on BOINCStats and at 2100 UTC I was shown as McShane of TSBT = 3rd. It seems WCG has a different clock or you checked the stats after their daily update well after 2100 UTC.
