    One more day in and we've managed to slide up another spot in the overall rankings. Fortunately, the next three above us are reasonably close, so if we keep things up, they should fall too :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout:

    The Germans, however, are a vigorous bunch, and I'm not sure how well we will fair against them :shadedshu

    Still #6 tonight, but we are now very solidly above #7, and I think that we can still catch up to the teams immediately ahead of us with a bit more crunching and some further diligence. :rockout::rockout::rockout::respect::respect::rockout::rockout::rockout:

    We're doing quite nicely so far--twenty three million points and still going! :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast:

    Given our current PPD, we should eclipse China tomorrow or Friday at the latest. We're currently gaining on Decrypthon, but I'm not sure if it will be fast enough to overtake them. SETI and 3DNOW are in a league of their own, and short of requisitioning every single computer lab here at school, I don't see how we can overtake them :(

    If we can keep up our current PPD, we should have absolutely no issue overtaking China tomorrow :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :respect: :rockout:

    A fine job indeed guys! There's quite a lot for us to be proud of accomplishing tonight! :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast: :respect: :toast: :rockout: :toast:


    I know that many of you, myself included, hoped and certainly even expected that ultimately we would do better than 5th place overall. Indeed, given the PPD that we were sustaining, I'm confident that, with more time to do so, we could have done more than 5th place.

    Nice work TEAM!! 5th in da WORLD!!

    Plus we didn't sandbag the start. I think after last years finish, we scared a few folks and they took measures to pad their scores. Oh well. I am proud of us! We beat 7 countries!! TPU should declare independence!! Tell Wizzard to write up a constitution!

    Then we can wage war against stupidity and .... Buy everyone a NEW CAR!!!

    A new car would be useless for me. No decent parking space, and taxation/insurance/fuel would cost me too much. And I don't have a driving licence. :laugh:

    A little bit late for this- best to take the time to plan our challenges and be more selective with our choices rather than just throwing our names in the hat. ;)

    [Ion] should be taking the lead on our next challenge- keep an eye out for a planning thread by the end of the month....

    I tried and it was very very annoying. I cheated eventually. I went to reply and it showed the link. I wont give in spoilers about what the link is.
