I feel the same as you, wouldn't switch Teams for anything. It's the Folding that's important, the points and stuff is just a bonus.
Hope to see you in our rearview soon...
Very true. It is still nice seeing a reward and some return of investment though. I dread the day that my mildly OC'd stuff spews smoke in all directions. It'll happen sometime.

I may have to get a jump on my farm to be able to shake a stick at you guys when you come a knocking.

Remember El_Fiendo, we have something you don't.
We have "The One" (this will never get old LOL)

One Card to Bring them all, and in the PPD Bind them

You'd have to ask Gav for sure, but a good guess is that he got the domain name from whatever provider he used when he started up, and the great majority of those offer .com names rather than .ca.

Are you folding with CPUs as well? I found that when I added my CPU to my 2 295 GPUs the GPU folding fell in numbers.

I am using the system tray and not the command line client. I followed the directions on the F@H website, created the second folder and then disabled the SLI in the NVidia control panel after I hooked up a second monitor. I am using the beta 185.65 drivers in Windows Vista x64 and FAHSpy says I should be getting 13000 ppd with just the GPUs folding. I set up some fan profiles in RivaTuner and right now the cores are 70/73 with the fan cycling between 70% and 80% as core 1 hits 71C.
