Default 1st month of folding

Well, I just finished up my first month of folding.

It's been fun (also addicting) (and expensive!) I just passed 250K total points and moved into the top 50. I also managed to get into the top 10 producers list (at least until Folding_for_pscout ends or someone puts new hardware online or my hardware dies or ...) We'll see what tomorrow brings, but it certainly is a worthwhile cause.

Good work! Keep the points coming. The upgrading can be expensive and fun for sure!

+1 on the expense. So far in my first month I've spent $350US upgrading a computer that I was looking to sell for $300, because I "needed" two rigs folding.

Yep, sure blew my budget; but what can you do when someone offers you a 9800gx2 for $150? Then it was a new case for the obsolete computer (since it will now have a 8800gt for folding). And the new heatsink so that I can eek out a few more PPD from the vm clients.
