hats off to that mr dt!

ive placed a number of old slow machines in the arms of the needy lol..doing youtube,and internet and messaging and most importantly in between all those daily chores,
a timeless wu or two. cant beat that.

got a bud i hooked up a while ago with a few lappies, dude never formatted hes clean of viruses etc, last i checked he did hundreds of the one wu's.

you guys got to remember, most people dont leave their pc's on, they fear fires and the electric bill along with santa claus too! :p

Timeless. Talk about holding up the program. Just like the new smp client where you can pick small medium or big WU's, That's how they should redesign those old client's with the WU's being broke down so the small ones are for people that fold around 10 hours in 10 days( 1 hour a day), and the big ones are for people that fold 24h/day. Folding for 1-10 min a day may sound good ( If it posable to complete 1 before the deadline runs out) but if it takes 6 months to complete a WU is it helping when the whole Project could have bin complete in 4-5 months if that 6 month guy did not get that WU, Luck has it he got that WU 3.5 months into the project so now it's not going to take 9.5 months to complete the project . Timeless = Forever, I dont want us to take forever to find these cures
Great you kept folding on your old pc's but bad for PG for not braking down the WU's a little more so they get done faster.

look at it this way...some stuff can wait. so,why put the big guns to work when you can leave it to the small and

very numerous fries? if you start adding up the numbers,it'll start to make more sense perhaps. yes the gold fish

Who is Kasson? does he speak for PG?
Any time somebody is found to be cheating the system and PG fails to react, there's a good chance that the whole project will suffer by losing current/potential users.

This isn't much different than the team which had the auto-installer a couple of years back.

The system "kinda" does that now. That's where the 24hr pause from EUEs (bad WU related, not hardware related) because of the 3 strike rule comes in. The only way around it is to change the machine ID.

Thats What I'v bin trying to say " Some stuff can wait", Having to get them reassigned is not that big a deal, It's not like their getting timed out, Then reassigned.

I was just wondering what BWM's ppd should be around if he's was not doing what he's doing?

WTF 4Door #25 and DeadThings #35 for PPD AVG in the world( Combined over 1million ppd avg).

And what makes BWM special that he deserves all the best WU's for highest PPD? Oh, that's right, nothing. He was a dink during the short time he was here, glad to see my opinion of him was correct.

He's cheating the system. And yes, the units are getting timed out before they get reassigned. So he's actually doing more harm than good.

Looks like I have most of what I need done to get King Quad into its case... after it finishes a 6903 this afternoon I think I'll go for it. Have to figure out the psu location and perhaps notch out space for some cables to go around my fans.

Read signatures?

It's going into a 4u rack mount case. Had to extend the mobo tray and move the psu location. Probably also have to cut out the top for the heatsinks cuz I just had to get the 120's not the 90's.
