When we started this race, I wasn't even sure we'd beat P3D straight up considering what the showing they had at the Pentathlon this year.

Now here we are. With points not only greater than P3D, but P3D and SG combined. Just wow.

Simply put. This team is amazing.

PS
Guess all those previous years of two or three teams VS us has paid off. ;)
Well, I don't think I am the main reason that we won so big.... But this is the first yeat I had over 1100 cores, and strong ones also, all in on this. Its medical, so of course.....

Edit: Never mind. The counter was showing zero for me, but my computer was just being stupid (or maybe I was). Pretend I didn't post this early.. ;)

Good point. The counter was showing zero time left for some reason. I wiped out the NOT final stats in my previous post since they were incorrect.

Good job everyone! The big dogs on this team know how to bite!

Here is a temporary badge (also team artwork) to hold over until this is official. (I think they need to review tape before there can be singing :)

Got up and just saw the final results. Wow. Just wow. Great work everybody :)

I couldn't throw in as much as some others here (not even close :D), but I tried to make the most of what I have (i.e. bunkering enough tasks to keep the system at 100% load for the entire week until the start of the challenge, dump the bunkers on time and then just let it crunch on).

Also, thanks a lot to Stefan for all his "stats-ing", garnished with some witty aside :D
