    just thought of the perfect quote...

    Colonel Sandurz: Prepare ship for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, no, light speed is too slow.
    Colonel Sandurz: Light speed, too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we're gonna have to go right to ludicrous speed.

    prepare for folding @ ludicrous speed. :)

    Right now I'm slated to be #50 in a year.... :( I'm like 180 something now. Not too bad though considering I only have 2 machines folding though.

    <3 Mac Pro and <3 PS3 (only <3 PS3 for folding though)

    yesterday, the team summary page on EOC was amazing! 9 people in the red (1.6k+), and 19 people above 1000ppd. guessing part was the PS3 (@#$^! xbox 360, no client...) and part was the stats server/crash thing catching up. still was cool to see.

    time to start lurking on ebay for a PS3 i guess...:eek:

    :p I had to pull a screen grab during the 4 second window when my ppd hit <2200. The next points adjustment will drive me down to @1500-1600ppd. Considering where I was living pre-PS3, I'm happy there.

    ugh - I had a brief moment during a two week period where I had about 30 systems running fullspeed. Got up to the top 10 or 15, I forget exactly this was a couple of years ago.
    Now I have gotten a system I can run it on again and have managed to crack top 200 :(

    Oh, well, #193 is better than not folding at all.

    crank it up, indeed.

    of note is the difference moving from single core CLI software to SMP makes on a dual core/cpu machine. gets more work units done, and raised my PPD a bit. of course adding a macpro to the pile probably helped a bit also. :)

    now if i can get someone to trade me a ps3 for my non-folding xbox 360...

    just trying to stay ahead of you ps3'ers until i join you ps3'ers!

    lets go catch silentpcreview. :apple:

    umm....

    05.14.07 5,264 8
    05.13.07 9,411 11
    05.12.07 6,562 15

    guess they arrived :eek: :)

    the big jump for me was due to moving a few dual/quad windows servers from command line to SMP. i was folding on my MacPro for a few days, but couldn't stand the heat in the office. looks like i'll need to bring the heat to try and keep up if you keep this up!

    great job!

    He, that would mean you will be overtaking me somewhere this year! We can't have that!! Thank god they replaced a faulty motherboard at work of my C2D, so it's stable now and running 24/7 :p Maybe I leave my G5 cranking a bit more, in other words: I'm back....

    P.s. When are they going to bring out folding for the Wii?!?! That will serious kick some PS3! :D

    Issmit02, just wondering when looking at the stats of our team: There is also an kssmit02 with 79000 points and also in the top 10. Are you two the same, have you put your name wrong in a couple of clients or are you two different persons???

    I wondered the same thing! :) But no, right now I'm only running one machine (may be able to add a second soon), and it has my ID entered correctly.

    One machine that delivers 1900 points per day?!?!:eek: What are the specs of the Mac you took when you traveled with your timemachine to the future. More importantly, when will it be available for the common people that don't have a time machine!:D

    It's the 2.66 version of the Mac Pro with 2 gigs of Ram. The SMP client can complete a work unit in about 20 hours, with the typical score being about 1,440 per WU. And, yes, :D

    And here I'm folding on dual G5 1.8 where the best it can do is 200 points per day, but this machine isn't folding 24/7. And at work is C2D 1.67 folding 24/7 and this also is doing about 1 WU every day of 200 points. This is not fare! :mad:

    I've been folding with my iMac C2D for about a month or so. 5/6 WU's done. :)

    is it running the PPC client in Rosetta? I tried that for a while, but it was dog slow, and only used on processor.
