    And our intercept with MacAddict has been moved up to September 14, 2003! We are out crunching them by 600 pts a day! Keep up the crunching! And great job to everybody who has contributed even one work unit!

    Oh, and we currently have no threats set to overtake the team!

    Check it out for yourself <Thanks MrMacMan for the link>

    Wow, that's a long way off - I hope we can keep up the speed...;)

    Very cool that we're moving so many WUs. I just wish I could find a few more computers to help....

    Well a few days ago it was in November. If we keep adding to our pace we can realistically overtake them in a few months. :)

    Let's not think small... At the rate we're picking up steam, I say let's shoot for slaughtering them in ten weeks or less. That undercuts our current projections by a couple weeks.

    Y'know, we need some cheerleaders or something in our corner.

    Any contribution is a good contribution. Think of it this way, right now we are gaining on AthlonXP at a rate of 34 points a day. Lets say that your rate on your eMac is 10 pts a day. You now have single handedly increased our gain on AthlonXP by 33%!!

    Keep on folding!

    does folding use any ports that i should have to worry about. actually im not really worried. my parents have sensitive data but knowing that we are running os x and 2 firewalls behind our network i really dont feel to need to worry. if you guys tell me i have nothing to worry about i have a 2ghz p4 and a dual 1.25ghz g4 i can run this stuff on. please dont lie to me either to get me to do it,lol. i know its tempting

    well alright then, i just took my 24/7 linux pentium133 off of useless seti and put it on f@h. it'll probably take six years a wu but hey whatever.

    no the ports are configurable. my scripts use the default port that folding sets up.

    there are deadlines. the slowest machine i have running is a PII 333 w/512KB cache and it finishes on time.

    the benchmarking machine is a 400MHz celeron.

    yeah i did read that. hopefully, even tho my machine is slow, crunching 24/7 will let it keep up with deadlines.

    Clients

    I want to contribute but which client is the fastest, the graphical or text based and is the text based harder to use. Also, can you resume units to finish them later like with SETI?

    Re: Clients

    yes you can resume the units.

    the text based is easier and more transparent with my scripts. the GUI uses only one processor and takes up more CPU whether you have the app hidden or not.

    whatever you're comfortable with is best. make sure you're getting the most out of you're machine.

    well i have started crunching and have joined the macrumors team. i am currently crunching on a dual 1.25 ghz g4, 12 inch powerbook, 2gh p4, 3 p3 systems at school. hopefully that will contribute some, i started last night and i have already crunched through 60% of a 400 point protein on my pc.

    Not meaning to be pedantic, but it's probably actually just a 400 frame protein, rather than 400 points. Check the points page (as given by mc68k), to see how much your particular protein is worth.

    OMG, SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T STEAL OTHERS LINKS???
    :breaks down and crys: ;)

    And we aren't going and recruiting their 'dead' members? Um ... hello go over there and make our presence felt! :)

    I'd like to say that it not even close... my iMac uploads every 2-3 days... Don't expect so much from 1 eMac. :D (unless it is the little eMac that could, then it can do anything)

    Wow sudden rush is members, which cave did you people come out of so I can recruit some more people. :D

    Did you guys never DC before or something...?

    The FAQ page should help you out. For the mac we all love mc68k's scripts (single and dual) and then use one of the 2 progress apps out there. If you have PC and Mac you probably want the one that runs on JAVA (bousozoku's app) because it is cross platform...
    Good luck, good folding.
    (BTW, the passing date is now Step. 29th)

    I just started folding on my 500 mhz ibook. Hope I can hit the deadlines. I have some heavy processes running at times and they only give 2.5 times the run time for their celeron for the deadline.
