    My Windows PC is currently offline and not folding because the PSU (power supply unit) was smoking :eek:
    That PC was producing much of my points per day. With it offline, my average is going to drop below 200, below 150, probably below 100 if it stays offline for a while.

    Too bad! But look at the bright side:
    - Thank God it wasn't your Mac!
    - Know I don't have to worry that you will overtake me anytime soon!

    There is always a bright side when bad things happen! :D

    Did you lose all your producers? You've had an average of 0 for a bit now... I'm actually gonna overtake you by mid next week at this rate...

    On one hand it's nice to overtake you but on the other... it's not even a challenge... :(

    I've discontinued F@H - that's why my average is 0. I don't bother checking it anymore.

    So, it was all a contest to you? You never wanted to help anyone?

    That's unfortunate. Even if you have a low average, every little bit helps!

    Remember WHY we're ultimately folding.

    That is very sad, hope that you will consider returning. After all the best reason to fold is for medical research. You will be helping your children and future generations.

    I've restarted the client on my Mac. My PC won't come back online for a while, though.

    It'll be a while before I produce another WU and start getting points again. My iMac G4 isn't exactly speedy at producing WUs, especially when it gets used heavily (which happens often, since it's my primary machine).

    Well, Panda, you are producing to much anyway, it's only about 800 days before you overtake me. You can handle a G4.

    Yeah... my productions going up quite a bit. I had a computer offline for a few weeks but it's back on now. I might get a few more on this week if I think about it... we'll see I guess.
