Folks,

Hardware Analysis now has an official Folding@Home team. I'd like to encourage everyone to join the team and participate as much as possible. The project itself is a worthy cause, and I welcome a little teamwork and friendly, healthy competition in the forums.

In the spirit of competition, I've fired up my own system, and treated myself to a small head-start. So fire up that killer system of yours, and let's see who can catch up. ;)

The Folding@Home website is here: http://folding.stanford.edu . Clients can be downloaded there, stats viewed, and the have a FAQ section as well.

Hardware Analysis is team number 37576. You'll need that number to join the team when you download a client.

Our team stats can be viewed here:

EDIT: We now have a new forum thread.

Additionally, I should add that we could certainly use a 'team captain'. If any individual(s) is/are interested in supervising and maintaining the team in general, drop me an email and we'll discuss.

Just found some good info on the folding@home page. Here is the rationale for how many points you get for each WU.

"We plug the results of this into the following formula:

points = 110 * (daysPerWU)

where daysPerWU is the number of days it took to complete the unit. "

Whils this helps a wee bit, it still dont explain why people who are churning the WU out are getting crap points

Good news, i now have 8machines working on folding.

These will be on for about the next 10 days, then agains sporadically after that as people come back from holidays.

This should help us move up the league.

Congratulations boys!!! We are over the 100 WU mark. I think this is a great achievement considering we only started a few days ago and have 7 members (hi to newguys willer and deepfreeze)

We are now 4478 of 31297 in all teams. Still gotta get more mebers though so if you can get as many people to join.

I have dowloaed the client and workin on my first unit. I was just wondering how long it takes for the wrk unit to complete (amd 2600+). just want a rough idea.

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

I've had some that complete in as little as 8 hours. Other WUs may take about a day to complete. It's really hard to say. You don't really know how long it will take until it's done.

hmmm.....well usually the longer it takes to finish a WU, it gives you less points. Unless you have a HUGE WU lol.

Bob jones - I'm hoping it's a big WU, check my bio for full specs, but basicly I have a 2800+ with 512Mb. Not the best, but not that bad either. Normaly I get through 2 or 3 WUs a day. This one is realy heavy.
