It can take some time for things to get updated. You're on the team now, it would seem.

It's been folding for 2 days, and I only have 2 WUs logged thus far. :S
What client do you use? If it's the uniprocessor one, you'll have to live with it having a slow output. However, if you've a dual- or quadcore Palodin's advice should be useful:

Also, I'd love one of those sig thingies with WU and points tracked.

I'm using just a PS3 right now, so I get about 1 WU done every 6 hours. It says I've done 4 now. I just let it fold for 6 hours, then give it a bit of a rest.

Thanks for the info. I'll add the sig thing at an unspecified later date.

I had to stop folding for a while guys, sorry about that. I'll start back up when I get my internet back up.

I'm up to 10 WUs now. Not bad for a few days' folding on my PS3.

So...What does all of this accomplish again? I see a lot of posts about cancer and all but has any of this folding stuff actually done anything yet?

Here's a list of research papers from F@H. As I understand it, they've come some way towards developing a new strategy to fight Alzeimer's Disease among other things.

Yes, it has.

In other news, I am back at home and have started folding again. At the moment only at my laptop, but I think I'll get my PS3 back sometime next week.

Back to the number one spot on the team. I've soooo been there; done that. Someone needs to knock me out of the number one spot. :twisted:

Running my PS3 nonstop is pushing its sorry luck, so I doubt I'll be claiming the glory anytime soon.

I'd try but I doubt I'll even breach the top 10 anytime soon. I can pull 10-20k a day if I really try but even then it'd be a couple of years to match your current score :( . Maybe running my PS3 24/7 could provide me with a wee boost... and I have a media PC downstairs that might be worth a couple hundred a day...

I blame the two years I took away from folding, I did it for a few months after the demo then forgot about it until the full release. I note monthly outputs dropping off as well (4 mil in january to 2 in July), a lot of people must be doing that now.

PS3 doesn't amount to much - at least if you want to catch up to Bara ^^°
A bit more than 600 points per packet at one packet every six hours or so, iIrc.
I had that thing running for almost 20 months.
