Hi guys,

I found out today one of my friends has Cancer. I know hes doing fine, and is treating his illness, and has not asked for anything.

But i feel so helpless.

With this, I would like to ask you all to spare a few of your CPU cycles to help this person. every little bit helps, and im sure he would be very grateful.

Thanks all and :roadrunner:

Dave

When I receive my new case I will have a box to put all the spare parts I have gathered and I'll have a 3500+ folding 24/7. I should also get this rig running too, I've been saying this for such a long time...

I'll get back to it soon. Just seems that every month or so when I start it up it just sits there and doesn't do anything....then I have to uninstall, reinstall, rinse, repeat.

I have just installed the client, I hope it works better than it did before on my other CPU. Got 2 clients running, each seems to be using one core. It's been such a long time I'm not sure how to do it anymore... But it's worth the try.

This may cheer you both up a bit Dave. I know it could be a while before we see anything significant from this but it shows there's always hope :roadrunner:
