Eccentrica Gallumbits Blows Past Team Mac
Observer, Team BeOS
- 17 April 2000 - Dan Knight
I was looking forward to Monday morning and the chance to
announce that of Team
Mac Observer had again eked past Team BeOS.
It didn't quite happen, although we are currently within
2000 work units of Team BeOS.
Last Friday I looked at the
twenty top teams, as well as those moving toward the top. Of
Eccentrica Gallumbits (EG) I wrote:
- Another new team with a stellar growth curve is
Eccentrica Gallumbits (5 members, #39 this week). They
entered the Top 100 just this week and have turned in as
many as 14,500 units in a day. (The team name is a
relatively obscure reference from Douglas Adams'
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.)
Just how stellar a growth curve? See the chart below, in
which EG appears in black:
With just seven members today, they zoomed past almost 20
teams over the past few days to reach #19. Not bad for a
team that only joined the Top 200 about a week ago!
As for Team Mac Observer (orange in the chart), we are
still gaining on Team BeOS (green), although
SETI@Netherlands (blue) is moving further ahead of us. I
feel confident Team Mac Observer will climb past Team BeOS
to regain #20 by the end of the week - unless another
obscure team zooms past all of us like SETI@Netherlands did
early last week and EG did over the weekend.
