Den_Den,
Glad you decided to join. /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /> Yes, in addition to helping find cures for diseases it is also fun competing among our team members and also with other teams. Here is a link to some stats http://folding.extremeovercloc.../use....php?s=&t=34106' ">http://folding.extremeovercloc...er_list.php?s=&t=34106 and here is another http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi...n.py...e&teamnum=34106' ">http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi...teampage&teamnum=34106 you might want to bookmark these so you can keep an eye on things. Many of the team members have multiple machines folding and are racking up the points. It is referred to as a folding farm. I'm sure as you start climbing in the ranks you will also join in the competitive spirit. /cool.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='cool.gif' /> If you look at my post in this forum"Maybe we do make a difference" I posted an article on how folding is helping already.
Cheers,
Bob

Keep them Folding!
