    Lets catch those teams in front of us in folding! I want to pass those Dutch Power Cows soo bad. I remember when they passed us I was so mad, but know we will catch them in 3.6 months! We will pass SilentPCReview Folding@Home even faster, only 1.3 months. But we need to keep this output up! Come on guys we need more power. We need more people folding! I want to pass the Dutch Power Cows really bad so lets catch them fast!:D Good job guys lets keep it up!

    Yes you can help. We would love for you to help!:D
    http://folding.stanford.edu/ Its a little application that uses your extra CPU when you are not using it. So it does not slow down your normal Computer use but it puts that CPU power to use for a good cause. Also this is helpful: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=21908
    I like using the our script over the normal client http://calnet.sdsu.edu/mc68k/ it starts it up on startup and makes it so no window is open. We would love for you to join us. We are team 3446. Here is a site with our stats http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=3446.

    Just put a Quad and a PB 1.67 online today. I'll do what I can.

    The PM has a HUGE protein right now - up to 70 frames.

    its too bad i don't work at the local university anymore. I would of so gone and installed folding at home on all the computers in the labs.

    This would have helped out a lot i think, especially since we left those things run 24/7.

    Dual G5 folding here. Hopefully we will gain some ground when Mac Pro is out ;)

    I´m curious; has anyone any statistics on how much energy is being used world-wide on folding?

    We can only speculate: the number of computers times the normal powersupply times the average uptime of a computer.
