    I'm pretty much just floating the list out there...

    If people come across it and see they haven't contributed in a while, or you see someone around on the forums from the list feel free to contact them.

    Good for you (not the feeling bad part).
    BTW, in a general sense, not dealing with you specifically, why did you temp. stop in the first place?

    I wish i had been on the team when it began though because i have around 550 points that went nowhere because i was not on a team. I stopped because i began putting my computer to sleep at night, and then would just forget about folding.

    Whatever happened to rugby?

    I'm sure I missed something...
    When 1 of the top 3 folders haven't given in a week I get worried... :D

    Did he drop folding or something?

    i have been having problems with the use of the scripts that mc68k has provided.... the old old one stopped working at all. then i used the new one and have had problems whenever restarting the machine (and thus restarting folding)... it seems to restart the proteins occasionally. i had some 400 frame ones due about 2 weeks ago. and it got restarted about 300 frames in.... same happened last week (though not as far in)... but i've been folding since saturday non stop and am about 75% done. i will do my best to not restart before then. i will also talk to chucky sometime about my issues with it

    You know, b2tm has access to quite a few machines - anyone ever try to get him to join up? I think its time for a little persuading...;)

    Good idea, D.

    I talked to him about getting it set up on one of his home machines...not sure whether he still has it running or not.

    I've never seen any user name that's recognizably his. If I see him around I'll bug him as well.

    Any response? Its been a day and a half. Were not struggling without him but he is a great part of our team I wouldn't want to see (lack of expressing feelings properly) disintegrate.

    Anyone with an excess of machines is welcome to join up. :D

    Tell me, bug em a little but don't push too much.

    Actually, I did hear from him. He's started up a distrubuted project/team on his own (not F@H).

    Too bad. His output will be missed. :(

    Nicely worded. What is more important than folding? Um... which 10 of them did he join?
