[WHINE]But I was enjoying having my slow PCs push me up within the team rankings...[/WHINE]

Taking advantage of altivec is one of two good things that can happen for this team. The other is MacOS9 compatibility...tho' I don't see that happening soon. All the computers at my school run they all run SETI, even in the Biochem Labs. Just think...folding proteins on biology computers...

Looks like I'll have to start folding on my brand spanking new powerbook (when I get it)...I wasn't planning on to.
