Bunkering is allowed here right? I don't have many cores so I might as well do some work in advance if I can! : )

The first bunkers have dropped and hit their marks. Looks like Planet3D is doing quite well as expected. TAAT dropped a large Nuke right at the start but wasn't enough to keep P3D from passing. We are at 4th for now which is pretty good but we will have to scrounge up every system/phone/pi that we can to maintain or climb back up. There is a long road ahead.

Looks like Team USA had a 10M point hour at UTC 16:00 which vaulted them to 4th place.

They have been very much outproducing us on the regular updates as well I think. This is gonna be a lot more of an uphill battle than Pure was for sure.

Looks like with a few of our heavy hitters switching to the PrimeGrid challenge, we lost a spot and are down to 6th. CNT is probably building a big bunker right now as well so possible to lose another position. If anyone has anything else to toss in, you might want to get it going.

Sorry, folks. I've not been to work in ages and never had a chance to fire up more boxes more than the 6-8 boxes that've been running WCG for months now. :( Not sure if it would've made much of a difference since I wouldn't have time to play the bunker game. (which, IMHO, needs to be abolished)

Its all in good fun. We still have a good showing. Looks like with 8 hours to go we dropped to 7th place. This happens when there are multiple challenges going at the same time. We knew in advance that we would be down on production for this one. We still have the X-mas challenge next month but with how few show up for that one, it shouldn't be too much of a thrill.
