    Our lab of 31 eMacs (700 MHz) have joined our lab of Dells and other miscellaneous machines that mc68k and I contribute to the MR Folding effort. Expect to see a nice increase in output over the weekend. :D

    Any bets on where the points per week will level off to?

    I'll just be happy keeping a certain diminutive canine team from passing us. ;)

    As Homer Simpson would say...


    Whoo-hoo!

    Now if we can get that computer yzeater is referring to...we'll have great output!

    I'm glad to hear that the eMacs are folding. We need more Macintosh representation. Hopefully, this will help hold back the barbarians (a little while longer).

    How fast would the cray be able to fold? I think it's 8 500mHz CPU's and 32 gigs of ram..

    yzeater, as soon as you have that Cray folding some WU's please benchmark it for us. It will be pretty interesting to see how fast does it go!

    My best guestimate Insane. :p

    Yeah I'm doing my small part, over the weekends I leave my comp on, and every other night I leave it on so maybe I will get over (2?) lol.

    Yeah the cray system would kick, heck anything we can get to hold off The Intel Using AMD XP users. :rolleyes:
