Depends on what you mean.

Can you have each video card work on its own at the same time (ie. have F@H running twice) while SLI is enabled; yes

Can you have two video cards in SLI work on the one folding instance; no

I prefer SETI@Home. The idea of 'discovering' an alien species and being whisked off to distant worlds is more appealing to me. Call me crazy.

Even if SETI does find an alien signal, don't expect to make contact any time soon (or possibly even ever). It's likely enough that any signal they do find is from so far away that by the time we actually received it, their civilization was long gone.

Unless they curve space and send the signal to us that way.

Maybe they can reverse the polarity of the neutron flow too.

(bonus points to anyone who gets that)

I don't understand this addiction of giving... for me it's seeding on torrents, I always like getting a good ratio so I leave it on for 8+ hours a day to get a good ratio. Now that Demenoid has been down for a few months I'm transferring this over to folding :)

No, that's quite unlikely. A police booth on the other hand could be a possibility.
