    Well some of my fellow keeners in the folding world may have know i work/help out at a school. I do ALOT of computer work there and I talked to the guy in charge. And he said we could do a test on a couple computers to see how much folding slows them down if any. :) So today I installed it on 2 Athlon 64s. And next time I go in, I will install it on another 20-30 P4s. And if he has no complaints with them I can install it on the rest of them. So that will be about 100 CPUs. CPU speed will average out at about 1.2 Ghz. Some faster some at 1 Ghz. But with any luck I will be able to catch up to dreadnought at mc68k. And of coarse help our team out of this slump. :eek:

    GREAT, go for it!!

    Hmmm, not so great... :mad: Let's do the math: I have one dual 1.8 G5, so that's about 4 of your processors, so I'll be outnumbered with another 100 or so... Don't like those odds...
