Week 3 of the Great Jedi War is upon us. The events for this week (other than the ones that run continuously throughout the war):
We still need people on the ACC and BF2/EaW/Misc. ladders the most, so if you can do any of that, get out there and play some duels or write some battles. The wargame results were released, and we came in first this week, so good job to the team organizing all of that. We're neck-and-neck with CSP for 1st place, so everyone needs to give 100% the whole war. Endurance is key, and usually the 4th and 5th weeks are when most people die out and start slowing their pace. This is where we LEAP ahead and dominate.

-- Vardar was released from the Embrace of Pain, so we can have him owning up the JO/JA/JK ladder again, good job so far.
-- The runon is going very smoothly, and we've been doing a great job keeping it going. Try to make at least two 250-word posts each week in order to earn the maximum number of points we can for the RO.

-- There are a couple people who've been doing extraordinarily well in particular platforms so far, so I'd like to recognize their achievements:
*Vardar Fen'Amar Ordo: Rocking the gaming ladders
*DarkSabre Taldrya: Only one loss in the ACC so far, keep it up. Those bonus points really help us out.

-=||=- Sklib's Random Thing of the Week -=||=-
I came across something in Popular Science the other day. It's a program called "Folding@Home" that the University of Stanford is running to help research of Alzheimer's, cancer, Parkinson's, and other diseases. By using the unused processing power of your computer, it runs tests and stuff on your computer in the background, then sends the results back to the school.
Note: It isn't testing your computer itself, it's just using your processor to run its own test. For example, at the moment my program is running tests on a protein that is often associated with cerebral palsy, and is analyzing how that protein reacts with others to create the disease. You can find a lot more info, as well as the program, at folding.stanford.edu . I created a group if you decide to run the program, the number is 81251.

The most important thing for everyone to do right now is spam all the GJW events. If you have MS paint, you can do graphics. If you have a word processor, you can do poetry or fiction. It's really that simple, and doesn't require a ton of effort for those time-manageable events. If you have games or are qualified in the ACC, get out there and start doing that, we need all the contributions from everybody. If you're new the House, or a seasoned veteran, and need help figuring out what to do or how to do it, I'm always available via email or IRC. Catch me at [Log in to view e-mail addresses] or Vodo at [Log in to view e-mail addresses] if you have any questions.
Good luck everyone, and happy Buffalo Hunting!
