Default Folding with multiple PC's

Hey, I have a question that may or may not have already been addressed, but I couldn't find it when I flipped through some other posts...
Can I fold on multiple PC's simultaneously under the same user? Or does each PC have to be running it's client under a different user?

You can use as many pcs as you want to under the same user. I use both in my sig.
And several people on our team are folding for pscout (so there are about a dozen comps folding for that user.

Of course you can fold using multiple PCs using the same username. That's how members run folding rigs.

Sweet, I'll have to set it up on another rig when I get home... and a third when I get my wife a new setup put together... and a fourth when the htpc get's completed... oh the possibilities.

I wish someone had warned me that folding is as addictive as crack before I got started...
