Finally made the plunge
Hi all,

Just moved my i7 950 Quad 3.07 GHz, my Xeon X3370 Quad 3.0 GHz, and my laptop, AMD Phenon II Dual Core 2.8 to Team 54196.

End of next week, my new Xeon X5675 6 Core 3.07 GHz CPU will be here to replace the i7 950.
It is listed on eBay, to end at the same time my new one gets here.....Planned timing. :thumb:

Been talking about coming over for a long time, bout time I did it.

Take care, and fold on!!..........

Glad to hear the addiction is spreading though. Now only if this heatwave would subside.

Hi ilya,

Been folding for over 10 years, so not a new thing for me.
I ran the F@H Team Takoda for many years, with over 33 million folding points to my own personal credit.
I was running about 70k a day, but with the new scoring, I am around 60k or so now.

It will be weird to start at zero tho, wow, been a long time since I was there.
Oh well, won't take long to get a good amount tho.

Take care.......

PS: our heatwave here in the Seattle area is, we are at 70 degrees now, yesterday was 65 degrees. Sure do love it up here. :bleh:
More important, my systems LOVE it up here. Way To Fold

Hi bud,

In the mid 60's, there was a song that Dave Dudley did called "6 Days on the Road".
There is a line in the song that goes something like this:
"My rig's a little old, but that don't mean she's slow. The smoke from her stack is blowin' black as coal."

And, I have snow on the roof, but there is a fire in the furnance. :clap:

Glad to be aboard, and yes, so much fun to get new toys to play with. :haha:

Take care, and thanx for the welcome............
