on my 3rd week, #535, look out people
How is everyone else doing?
oh, and I hate tinkers
Congrats! you're really pilling up the points quickly, i've been going about 5 days now and am at 900, not as impressive a rate as you, but I'm giving it my all
Hanging out around 250th.
Nice, keep it up. Right now I'm struggling to break 200, but I've been folding off and on for awhile.
Well I happen to be responsible for desktop architecture for my company, which means I have a little lab with about 8-9 pc's I use daily that I get to load the client on. I only have my 2.0ghz G5 iMac and a 866AMD at home running the client. Cheating just a bit, but it's for a good cause.
exactly, this is one competition that I don't care if you're beating me, or cheating, cause everyone is a winner in the end.
oh god did I just sound as much like a cliche as I think i did lol
btw, how does the speed in folding compare between the AMD and the iMac. obviously the iMac is faster overall, but I have heard things about the folding client being faster (as in more efficient) in the x86 coding, or maybe this was just an anti-mac comment made to me, I dunno
Having recently (2002 colon, 2004 burst gallbladder, 2005 liver) survived 3 major surgeries of which 2 were for cancer (colon and lost 70% of my liver) I welcome as much from everybody as we can get. I just recently added our new G5 X-serve dual 2.3 to the fray and I've shot up the list to number 126 from 175 in just a month or so. (it's harder to climb the higher you get). My Point/Wu ratio has been steady at about 165, and the X-serve eats 200+ point Gromacs and Tinkers on a steady basis.
The competition is secondary, just bring the Folding on and on and on... let's get a cure for this crap
I feel the same way, I've lost family members to cancer and I feel like doing what I can so that as few people have to suffer from the disease as possible. I'm really excited to check my folding results when I wake up every morning and I've even started looking at CPU upgrades for my old Sawtooth G4 (350Mhz) that's just not cutting it doing a WU every 15-20 days or so
I fold mainly with my lowly 1.33 GHz G4. It has gotten me in the top 200 over the past year, but people are gaining on me. I doubt I'll be able to stay in the top 200. Either way, though, I'm giving to a good cause. That's enough for me...
passed the 800 mark last night, 791 with 2 more WUs to be done by dinner
....i'm way too interested in folding now
