Well, some of them will take days to process. So, after that you will show up as a member on the team.

LOL, Dave I am not going to let you catch up. You are goiing to have to work for it. I have my opteron 170 machine folding on both cores quite a bit, not 24x7. Then I have my IBM laptop folding on both cores pretty much all the time! Then I have a 450mhz machine working on some, my music server is crunching away with like 1.4 ghz, and my machine at work is crunching away at 2.6Ghz.

Being a cancer survivor myself ( Hodgekins Lymphona) i would love to be able to participate myself as i do have a desktop sitting hear just collecting dust ... BUT due to living arrangements i really cant do so ....17 year old that has the curiosty of a cat when a puter is left on ... and room mate that gripes about every bit of utilities that are being "wasted" ...makes it kinda touugh ...


Once living arrangements change ( within the next couple months ) i will DEFINATELY be participating in helping to find a cure with Folding@home...

So in the mean time ... from a cancer survivor .... to those that are avidly participating in helping to find a cure .. Thank you muchly :rofl: :lol: ) :rofl:
