    Hey folders out there? Just wondering what teams you all are folding for. I am folding for Team Mac OS X (1971).

    Sounds like an informal way of asking someone their sexuality. Which team do you bat for etc. :p

    I was folding for another forum on Folding@Home.

    Team 3446!!!

    And now I am contributing at a great pace. with my old computer I was lucky if I got 1500 points (5-8 WUs) done a month. My max was probably 2000 once or twice. We are 7 days into this month and I am already at 10,500 points (6 WUs). I could double my points in a matter of a couple months what took me to do for the past several years.

    By the way, does anyone know how to actually turn Folding@home off? I disable it in the SP and it turns off, but a few minutes later it will start back up on its own (the SP shows it is off but my activity shows its running).

    Thanks

    Have you ever tried to use increase to control folding?
    heres a link with increase and some other software to control folding on it.
    http://teammacosx.org/software.html

    i know if you use increase the default team is 1971 so u would have to change that.

    I havent have any problems using increase to start/stop/monitor folding. but i dont have any experience using SP to stop it(and keep it stopped)

    hope that was at least a bit helpful.

    Team Mac OSX. I think I found out about that team before I knew about the MacRumors team. I'm at 1,250,000 points or so after two and a half years.

    I have only been doing folding@home since I got my Mac Pro. I joined team OS X at first, but just switched to Macrumors about 20 minutes ago.

    Switched two months ago from Team Mac NN to MacRumors because my former team dropped out of the top 100. MacRumors will need a lot more ammo to keep its spot...
