As soon as some of the new member start finishing WU's we may hold them off or retake the lead. They have had 35 team members turning in in the last 7 days but they have only been gaining on us about 300 points a day. Somedays even less. Now the China Folding@Home Power team has been gaining anywhere from 1000 to 2000 points a day.

Once I get all 11 of my rigs running in sync, I'll be dropping close to 500 points a day for the team. We're not losing our rank, that's for sure.

As long as we keep giving it our best and we dont start losing positions like crazy I guess I'm happy For being a small scale folding group that hasn't been in it very long we're doing really well.

Just explained to ardrid i might be able to push the whole network i run of 450 machines and 8 servers into action for folding, will talk it over with the rest of my team.

Email me direct to discuss this sort of super-folding more, if i can push all these machines into action for 8 hours a day we can make some significant progress!

Yeah, keep your fingers crossed guys. That kind of power could easily propel us up into the top 100 and of course help study folding faster

Mine, and My grandmothers...yes my grandmother. During the christmas party we have at her house every year, she heard me talking about it..basically preaching to my pro-intel cousin, who was raving about the P4EE..and, well, she decided right there, that she needed "one of them Fx's". Her, and Grandpa own a big farm, so it really isnt a problem. So she has one, and, man, that has to be the fastest grandmothers PC around..if it isnt kudos to whoever's grandma has a faster rig. What really kinda irks me, she only basically, uses freecell, and Word. Thats the fastest game of freecell I can think of...haha

Roflmao! I'd place my money on the fact that that is probably the fastest grandmother rig in the world.

Oh no, Ard would lose his spot then! He'll fall into a pit of despair and never emerge to see the light of day. The only illumination available would be from a tiny 15" CRT that we would lower to him to allow his post whoring to continue

And shortly after falling into such a state he'd be passed by me. Poor Ardrid.

Ahh...that's what you think. But through my skills of persuasion, Voodoo would donate half of the rigs he sets up to me. I would be unstoppable!

Well, guys. I think a new member xkharn999x....he will be the next challenger for Ardrid. Yeah, only shows 7 CPU's now....But I think he can get a little under 20. He goes to school here in KS, and his school has around oh 20 PC's, 2.4's P4's mainly, but I told him about this folding thing, he said sure...I told him what team number, he asked no questions....Then he found out it was AMD forums...he kinda flipped at first, he was an Intel Fanboy, but now, he is getting an Athlon 64 system...Seems after browsing this forum, and seeing what we all had to say....he decided AMD was best at the moment, and he is upgrading. So with those PC's at school(I tried to get him to put my name on some of them but...No dice) and his other PC's, Ard, I think eventually, this year, you will be passed. I am aiming for the top 10, but, man, he wants to rule the world. Any Ideas on how we can Convince Kanavit to help us, and maybe switch to AMD?
