    Thats fine, whatever people can, that's all there is. It's about the team and what we are doing to help find a cure, a real cure. That's the most important thing here.

    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    I notice you are getting significantly more points per WU than anyone else. Apparently Mac users qualify for pity points or something? Some sort of minority rights thing or something?

    BTW is anyone else getting pissed by the site saying The Folding@Home stats system is performing an update. Please try back in about 15 minutes. seemingly every time a link is clicked.

    it only happens to me about once a day... so no, it isn't annoying yet. What's annoying is how long it takes to update in general ;) I'm at 3 and it still says one! Where's my lollipop! ;)

    I think they run updates 3-4 times a day. Quit being a point whore. :)

    Hey- whore's take what they can get.

    Oh , you meant him! Well, still stands ;)

    :p Anyhow... did you look at that log? I still can't figure why it's taking days to transmit my stats to the pages.

    I don't know either. I posted it to the F@H help forums, and no response yet....

    Ha! It's because my one unit is a ultra complex piece of protein that my mac grabs by the nutsack and OWNS it!

    Actually, I just left it at the basic settings and I keep getting pieces that take about 72 hours to complete.

    I'm kicking complete ass on my next piece. It is due the 23rd, but I'm already 45% through it. Downloaded it at 5:12 AM on the 19th.

    I'm enjoying this, just wish it game more information on what my little piece is actually doing. All I get is a name, Protein in POPC, is what I'm working on now. Doesn't tell me much.

    Interesting phenomenon, I installed the client as a service on my new laptop and immediately after it began processing steps, the fan kicked on high speed. Task Manager reveals the service taking exactly 50% of the processor. Looks like the Dual Core technology really does allocate system resources and services to one-half the chip!

    So can you run two instances of it, maybe using two separate installs?

    Good question! I don't know. From what I ended up reading about the Dual Core technology, it just shifts the OS functions and services to one dedicated half of the processor and leaves the other half for apps. Maybe if it was installed as a service in one instance and a gui app as another?

    Very nice, everyone! Only 16 days after starting the team, we've got 28 active CPU's and 16 members. That's nearly two CPU's per member. Great job!

    Yep! It matters not who is at top, what matters is the team! Way to go!
