My System Specs

Default Am I even contributing to Rosetta@Home?

I use Rosetta@Home over Folding@Home mainly because I can schedule when I want Rosetta@home to run using BOINC and the fact that I run MilkyWay@Home on the GPU, and Rosetta@home on the CPU.

I did the math.

I have a Quad Core Stock Clocked i5 3570K. It takes one core 3 hours to do one Rosetta task. On the weekends, the computer runs from 10:05 PM to 6:00 AM. Doing the math, during those hours, I only do 10 tasks. On the weekdays, It will be doing tasks from 9:05 PM to 2:00 PM the next day, and with that math I will only be doing 21 tasks.

With the above math, am I even contributing to the project?
