Well I'm at 175 points (62 WU's). I started almost a month ago on March 11. My 1900xp has been churnig them out, and I have my girlfriends comp that has done 20 WU's so far. Now I just put together my old comp, a pIII 800.

But I think I have an addiction to folding. Whenever I look at my score, I crave more folding power like a rabid dog craves the taste of Blood. I can't get enough!

Anyway, how is everyone doing? I'm a little worried about Rage3d, their score is creeping higher and higher.

Fold on

You think you got an addiction. I think it's gonna be scary once i get my hands on some credit. 26 more days, and i got my first duallie dedicated folder. The first of 10 :D

I know what you mean. I feel sad everytime my PC has to be turned off and stop folding :(.

I have churned out more points in these last couple of days than I have in the previous week or so. I definately need to get this thing folding 24/7. I am also going to try and get a Duron 650 folding.

I have so far convinced my friend to fold, emailed my next door neighbour and bugged my parents :D

I wish I could run 15 boxes on a DSL line :rolleyes:. Unfortunately I have no DSL line, and one PC :D

Hey David, have you considered moving your setups to the basement or something? maybe then the noise won't bother your parents;)

Maybe if you just caused another item in the house to make more noise, it will offset the puters. You know, like put a couple plastic ties on the blower wheel of the furnace,...;)

The extractor fan in the bathroom is quite noisy, but turns off after a certain time.

Lol. Yeah I know what you mean.

David, I have an idea for the noise. Get an air cleaner. They would mask out the noise of a PC, AND you get cleaner air. If you have smokers in your house, have pets, or have people with allergies, you wouldn't have much difficulty selling the ideo to your parents. Just a thought

Hmmm. Haven't heard of them. None of us smoke, we have no allergies but we do have a cat. He only smells if you are close up tho.
