    Yeeeehaw! I've finally busted into the top 250. As of 5.11.04 @ 1527, I am #239 with 3993.21 points from 71 work units. Just felt like sharing. . .

    Congrats! I am steadily making my way up the ranks as well (in the 300s right now.) So how did you get such high value Gromacs and Tinkers? Luck of the draw? (Because I keep getting these small ones, on my G5 none the less.) :eek:

    Getting to the top 100 is easy if you have only a G5. Getting under it and getting below the top 50, that's a challenge!

    Good job guys, keep up the work, fold on!

    I'm sure it is. I have a 933mHz iBook and a couple of Windows boxes running full time, but I'll keep plugging along.

    dread, i'll be seeing you in the top 100 soon, and hopefully in the top 50 not too long after that...probably this summer some time.

    Oke, then it's a bit harder! Still, keep up the good work and keep those computers crunching!

    Yes, I noticed you a couple of weeks ago, and you are overtaking me fast... Already trying to add my pc@work to join folding, but can't seem to get through the firewall. I have the IT department working on it, because they also don't know how it comes. So hopefully I have my 2.0 P4 running 24/7 soon! After that works, hope to get folding on more machines @ work. Hopefully before you overtake me! :D

    That it is WDlove, that it is. Although the game and excitement factor plays a big role in folding too! BenPatient, looked yesterday evening again at my stats and threat list, you are still 243 days behind me.... So don't need to get to worried about you, just yet! a bigger concern is Issmitt02, who will pass me in three weeks and he is unstoppable!
