Freaky!

Those guys over there are really weird.
Its like going to the alternate Star Trek universe!

There is an anti-Alpha-Tech and Anti ARN.

Their avatars are scarey and its all funny looking colors and stuff.

AND their board can do things we cant like not posting quotes and useing RE instead.... this bears investigation!

This version is not Altivec aware, but the next one should be.

Time per WU depends on what protein it gave you...some take more than a day.

thanks... any clue on when the next version is due out? altivec enhancement would push us over the edge!

kishba that folding control app some others mentioned is very cool. it runs the terminal app, but doesnt require you to eneter code or have the terminal open. heres what it looks like (warning if you use it and quit your current terminal app, you will lose all your 12 hours of progress, since the folding control app will downlaod a new protein)

Maccentral doesnt want to be beaten by a team with a member called "JelloShotsRule". Awesome. Rock on Jello.

If they let jello in they'll let anyone in:p ...must be a glitch in their system.

No need to get them too pissed off since they have like three times the membership as our team...but they're obviously less organized.:)

that's weird. i got mine right away. like literally checked right away and it was there.

i assume you've used all types of addresses, ie hotmail, yahoo, etc. a variety of providers...?

that's weird. i guess you could try to contact an admin there if they let you...?

ps. check out that thread now.
That was an awresome reply. :)

Sorry to join late, but 1mm spaced mini-jumpers are a bitch to find. We'll have some more processors to add to the team come this weekend, from me and da new MR folding boyz.

Keep up the good work, everyone. Our team is one to be proud of for such few members.
