    Folding observations, please leave in Gen forum

    Been playing with some numbers, I got bored with myself

    Seems with our current production numbers, we have reached the rank ceiling. I think 18th is our spot for a long while, although with a small push we could go cruising by Team AnandTech.

    We have 196 participants, [H] has 3607! BUT, doing a ratio/proportion our collective produces 1/3 more units. Either we are a community that enjoys the zippier machines, or lotsa folks on [H] joined and don't fold much(I don't know how the servers report comps that don't send in packets).

    Only one team right now has much of a chance of passing us up, and they have a LONG ways to go, their production numbers are higher, but they are 1/7 our entire total right now.

    So, my thrust here is FOLD folks. Cycling yer comp on and off is bad for the components, besides a comp will help heat up a cold room during the winter. Yer helping find the cure for some insidious diseases. And I'll personally beat Rosie O' Donnell with a 2x4 if we get 15th spot, I swear!

    Once I get one of my new rigs to work...I will start folding 24/7. It's a AthlonXP 2000 machine with 512MB RAM. Will that help?

    OK, I'll get my other two machines up again. I love incentives.

    Any little bit helps. Besides an Xp2000 isn't a small help, thats a zippy machine. We need about 5000 WU extra to overtake em. Assuming yer 2000 rig spits out 80 a week, one year gets 1/5 of that number. So, if 4 other folks were to pony up some unused CPU time, we could(in theory) be 17th by December of next year. 10 people, same circumstance, by May 2003....

    One of the reasons I watch these stats is well, testosterone, guys do this kinda thing. The real reason is that I have a flaming, purple, passioante dislike for cancer. Its messed with my life one too many times, and I want it GONE. Folding promises to help with that wish....think of the future lives we, yes WE can impact by simply lettin this app run in the background.

    Wow, sorry to hear that. Losing a loved one by any means is tough. Folding has already made a major contribution to fighting various malady's very recently by demonstrating how a simple gene folds..

    By the way, KsJason, if you do join, you not only get to use a custom avatar sooner, you also get a custom title with your name, if you so choose.

    Same thing for any new folder.

    Yeah the console loads up at start(at least mine did) I switched to the fancier one to have something too look at now and again.

    Or you could ask them if they want to help put their spare computer time into curing cancer... and install it with their consent.

    Using the SG team number of course
