    i don't use aim, actually i am not a big fan of instant messaging...you can email me though at howardface@hotmail.com

    i did figure out how to cd to the desktop...and i learned to type pwd to find out whats in it..and the os x-3.24 program was in there but when i typed that in it didn't do anything!! so i don't know whats up...

    you might be able to coax more info out of it with a verbosity switch like this:
    Code:
    ./OSX-3.24 -verbosity [b]#[/b]
    where # is a number from 0 to 9 i believe. (make sure to kill the folding processes first, otherwise you'll have N instances running at 100/N% idle processor)

    if that doesn't work, you can always find the info in this directory:

    /Users/username/Library/Folding@home/work

    There should be one or more files in there named logfile_0X.txt, where X is an arbitrary number. open this file with simple text and scroll to the bottom.

    To find how many frames are in a given protein, go here and look up the protein number.

    hey, thanks everyone for your help. i've been enjoying folding with the terminal, i also think its a big faster on my ibook 700mhz. also just thought i'd ask, are there servers really bogged down today? i just finished a wu this morning and it wouldn't turn in...then i looked on there site at some stats and for today theres a huge peak in like every team. i hope i get credit for that wu!!!!

    thanks again

    I think the huge peak was due to the worm, not you ;)

    Just kidding...

    the Stanford servers go down all the time. it could be attributable to the worm, but it goes down at least twice a week.
