well someone only suggested running 2 folding instances on a single core CPU. i got to thinkin, and that would work wouldnt it? just set both for like 50% CPU usage?

and to get them workin u just have to install in different directories right?

anyways, how woudlo that work on a P4 with HT? im kinda anxious to try that, mostly for the heck of it...

wat dyu think?

why bother? on a single core system it will still take the same time on average. you wont get points any faster.

They've discussed HT to death over at folding-community.org. The bottom line, no lies, is that HT is as useful to Folding as a third nipple.

You'd be better off not attempting 2 instances on a HT box or an A64 box.

As Action Man says, it's pointless... literally.
