    So I finally hit 10000 points, roughly 55% of which were folded on my homebuilt PC (P4 2.8C 1 GB RAM, used for games but it sits idle quite a lot of the time), 30% on a PB G4, and the rest on various G3 iBooks. On to 20,000!

    ^Thanks. It's fummy, probably 90% of all my output has been since August... and I've been Folding for well over a year now. I guess that's the power of having two decent processors working instead of 1 or 2 G3's.

    Well, with 3 processors in two machines over two years, I've got something like 36,000 points overall. It's only been this year that the AltiVec has been good for something and it really has been changing the face of things since the Gromacs code was shuffled the second time.

    Here's to having more people with desktop machines who don't mind lending them to the cause and our team.
