    If I count all the machines I have in total I think I have about 14. That includes dual processor machines.

    **Note** Dual machines can count as 2 machines since they process 2 WU's at once.

    You should search out some friends comps to fold.

    The number varies radically. Currently running I have 9. I do alot of folding at night and on weekends. At peak performance I have 13. (give or take.) I basically look anywhere I can pick up a few units... :)

    I'm on about 40...I think.

    mc68k is about the same, probably a little more.

    if you include the DP comps as 2 we're prob about 90+ strong here

    the majority of those being 800Mhz - 1GHz eMacs and Dells

    i could do a complete list if anyone cares

    I've only got one folding -- it's the only computer that I leave on constantly.

    When I eventually get a server for my house, I'll start that one folding too.

    Are we counting duals as 1, or 2 computers here?
    :rolleyes:

    Some of you say 1, but you have duals, yet others have the 2 CPU = 2 comps...

    Set some ground rules please. :eek:

    The one friend that has a ton of computers is on another DC project (bah) and aparently he gets like pennys to his work units completed... :p

    Yeah, I think if someone send that secret install link here I'll install on some of my friends computers. :p

    Sorry for Hyjacking... but i have some questions.

    1.) what is the macRumors Folding Team ID?
    and
    2.) Is there a way I could get it to do full duals for my dual 867?

    Answer: 1

    But I also have a question-How did everyone know that the original question was about folding? It just says "running." Why did everyone assume that is was about F@H? (even though that seems to be the right assumption :))

    Macrumors Team Folding is simply the most commonly discussed,
    just the one mac here.

    At the moment I'm running it on two computers. A 1GHz athlon (mine), and a 3GHz P4 (my mum's:)). I've been running it on my 500MHz tibook, but that seemst to have delevoped a problem with the hard drive, so it's out of the running right now :(

    So currently: 2 computers :cool:

    Because this is the distributed computing thread, and most people here are folding. Sorry for any mix up.

    One or Two most of the time.

    24/7 on my TiBook and whenever the PC is on at home, it folds.

    I guess it's my fault because I didn't check which forum the thread was in.

    Anyway, I have to modify my answer. It's 2 now because it's a dualie. :D

    5.5 - I get my wife's laptop to run it when I can, but not always.
    The other 5 are full time and I am hoping to add several more in the future - including my own 970 at somepoint :D

    Now I have 8.
    Hoping to get several more in the next week.
