    Woohoo!

    Now if Apple would only get their ass in gear and get some G5s I'd have even more!

    Congratulations Mr. Anderson, 20K that is an awesome milestone. ;) How long did it take you to get to this point?

    We should know about a G5 in 10 weeks my friend. :)

    Well, my dual 1.8 takes a lot longer then 10 weeks for producing 20K. You could multiple it by two and then you are accurate! But still, it's a beast!

    Congrats Mr. Anderson. But stay on your guard, only 323 more days before I pass you :D

    in 323 days I'll most likely have 2 more machines, so it might be some time before you pass me :D

    Good for you, but it won't last long once you pass me :D

    I'll be getting a new computer soon - and probably one or two more on top of that will end up folding under my name....

    I _had_ just passed 5k myself but suddenly I have 300 more points in my name. How is this you ask? Well, I setup a dual something or other G4 display unit at a local CompUSA a long time ago. I could tell when it got bought, because my production declined greatly. I think whoever bought it has yet to fresh install because I occasionally get spurts of points. :D :eek: :eek: :eek: ;)

    Maybe someone else out there is kindly donating their points in my direction?

    All I know is that points are appearing on my name and I can't account for them on the two machines owned by my family. ;)

    You would get a discount for the model on the floor, I suppose.

    In fact, you have 3 CPUs folding for you (http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=userpage&username=Stoid).

    may be you inadvertently used the force during your sleep, to change the electronic configuration in the circuit of your neighbor's PC?

    I would. I bought two floor models from CompUSA and haven't had any problems with them that I didn't cause myself. :D

    Btw, I'm almost to 20,000 points for all my folding with those two machines! :cool:

    Its just weird man.

    You would have to reformat that machine, sometimes CompUSA has like missing keys in the keyboard... its pretty sad over in NY...


    ah well.

    It's actually reassuring to me to be able to see the machines week-after-week.
