    I am running InCrease on a dual 450 G4 (running 2 clients). Yesterday I was folding the same protein on both processors. And today I am folding p724 on my first processor, but that same processor folded that same protein just a couple days ago. Is it normal to get the same proteins again and again?

    one Working Unit comprises only a small part of the calculation needed to fold a protein (or, rather to solve a project). there are therefore many WUs for any given project.
    you're currently helping to understand why Beta Amyloid peptides tend to aggregate, therefore contributing to alzheimer's disease

    fold on ;)

    Yeah one processor is still on the one from yesterday and one dumped that one and got a new one.


    And also Work Units repeat to get accurate results.


    So yes. Its quite normal.
