MrKillington is also im my class so he and i will be in this toghether...

Benchmarks proving [email protected] has negligible impact!

[H] is a huge team, for anyone to catch them it will take a mammoth effort, i can't see the issue with the site, affecting the team too much.

Not only are they a huge team but they are more like a Distributed Computing team than a folding team. Allow me to explain.. Team 32 is a folding team, pretty much all of the ghz we have available is dedicated to the [email protected] project. A lot of the hard folders do a lot of different DC projects at one time.. Like United Devices and Distributed Folding. So if Team 32 started really turning out the WUs and catching up with hard they have reserve ghz that they could use to stomp us.

As far as convincing your teacher, make sure you have all the right answers to the questions he may have.. make sure you can ease his doubts and he may agree to it.

I would:

- suggest the console version
- show him what other big companies/schools/organizations are running it
- Show him some of the results & acomplishments written on the Stanford Folding Webpage
- Have him, or run for him, a single copy on one computer for him to test out for himself. Show him how it runs 100%, but releases any needed CPU cycles to anything else.
- The benchmark link above, plus any other pertinent links ,etc...

Good advice, I've used a similar approach to get support from some corporate sites. :)

I hope it works out.

I would love to see you guys step it up to the [H] level.
I'm convinced you can do it. It will require a lot of dedicated effort and recruiting, but I'm sure you all are up for the job. :D

I'm not sure where we "brokedown" but we have increased our folding team by 100+ members. So it must have been more like ramp up then a breakdown. ;)

He's referring not so much to a folding breakdown as a breakdown in the sites credibility. But I don't think anyone there will be willing to abandon their scores to come fold for us...

Ah, Ok.
We're still adding members, so I guess not everybody feels that same way. We abandon our scores all the time as we switch around to our different team projects. Most of us just like our team. :D

I'm sure you folks feel the same about OC.com. :)
