    Congrats Meeble! You are already number 6th when you look at production rates! You might inch higher as your new machines start producing.

    Team by production rate

    That's excellent. How were you able to come by 24 CPU's to use for folding? Do you have access to a computer lab or something? Good luck climbing up the rankings :)

    Mr A> What's happened to your folding recently? It's been quite a while now since you last submitted a WU.

    i'm working on getting a lab. :)
    my friend is going to be the main
    tech at a new charter school -
    bringing in about 200 PIII 1Ghz
    workstations. that should be rediculous...

    40 p3 gig should be about 8,000 pts/wk

    so around 40,000. that is if they're crunching all the time...that's a decent team output right there

    That would be Incredible... amasing, great if that happened.

    No doubt would increase our production almost 100%!

    Keep it going!

    :)

    It is tough finding machines where I work to do folding because everyone else is either folding or doing other distributed calcs. I've got a dual 1.25 and a Pentium II 350 at home and at work I've got another Pentium II 350, a dual Xeon 733 and a Pentium 4 2.8. That is a total of 7 cpus with total processing power of 7.466 GHz (I know that adding up all the MHzs is absolutely meaningless, but I thought, what the hell, it's late and I'm feeling like a moron).
