    We'll maybe not ;) But I have completed my first two Work Units for Folding@home. The first one must have been a big one, because the two WUs got me 279 points and which placed me in league with other people who had mostly completed between 5 and 16 units.

    I'm sure my contribution to the research will show them the way to a cure for cancer :D or maybe at least some treatment for hair-loss or something

    You must have started out with some of the newly weighted Tinkers (lotsa work, but still low point ratio compared to Gromacs)

    Folding for teamMacrumors I hope (3446)?
    What are you using to fold?

    Welcome to the team, and thanks for your efforts!!

    Welcome to folding gekko513, it's great to have you onboard. Every little bit helps just one more building block toward a cure!

    Thank you (both of you). I've now completed my third unit, and I've now also donated my work laptop's idle-time to the cause (Pentium M 1.6GHz).
