    Two things; 1-Drop of production 2-My thoughts on future of FAH

    1. Leaving tonight for extended stay with my mother. Turns 92 Thursday and took a bad fall last Friday. So need to be with her for awhile.

    2. Anyone folding BigAdv work units needs to be aware that come April the minimum core requirement changes to 24 cores.
    Also on January 31, 2015 the BigAdv program is scheduled to come to an end.

    What the future of machines with many cores is has not been announced as yet. But anyone thinking of upgrading or purchasing a new pc for folding needs to be aware that it appears that the future of fah is going to be GPU's.
    So in my estimation the way to go is with a motherboard that will handle 2, 3 or even 4 graphics cards which will require a bigger power supply than normal.

    Hope to be back folding soon.

    After years I just installed fah to see how I'd do. Man o man.... yeah my GPU is doing a lot of the load. I have an EVGA 980 TI and it's fans are spinning like crazy. If I continue this I'm going water cooled to drop the noise down.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    To be honest, I didn't even realize that FAH was still still a thing. I don't think I've seen anything regarding distributed computing mentioned on the Net or News in years.

    From their site there are some very interesting articles. I know the future of some things like cancer are probably tied to immunology therapy and now there are indications that ALS might in part be caused by Periodontitis and there is research to fine a vaccine for it. Amazing huh? I have a niece who's been fighting brain cancer for 6 years now. She's been through hell and now.. it seems that the original one isn't growing but she now has a new one.

    So I feel kinda helpless and thought hey.. fold.

    I send my sister any new information I find and anymore there is a ton of it for all kinds of aliments.
