NOT! The 285's are back on EVGA's site, do I hear "STEP-UP" in the works? bwahahahaa..cough..cough Durn evil laugh hurts my throat.
Heh.... I think I'd be making sure that today wasn't the only day I folded...... I'd hate for the FAH stats to go down for that single day......

I fold everyday all day Steve. Remember when I posted that I'd pass you in the year 2025? That's down to about 8 months now. And an open warning to 3.0Charlie, I'm gaining 934 PPD on you. Your time will come. October 11, 2017.

Actually, I'm pretty happy to be back in the top 10. I gave up folding for a couple months with all the driver issues with my ATI card. Oh, and I'm number 8 in the queue. I'll lose a few days, but how can I not step-up for $61.05 US?

I was just having a quick look at the projected overtakes, and at current levels it looks like getting onto that elusive first page is slated for 1.1 months. Judging from the new members we've seen just this evening I suspect we'll breach that page (top 100) before the contest is over. :)

And to think I thought it was a big deal when SKY started mentioning F@H power consumption numbers in his videocard reviews. For a Folding Addict this is Heaven...

Thanks SKY

The flood has started already, the list of active and new Folders has increased by at least 6 or 7 just in the last stats update.

If we get half the influx of points I think we will, I'm guessing ...3 weeks or less...

Page 1 here we come...

Okay, since BOINC seems to be ignored, I should probably switch over to F@H.

Let's get these facts straight..
I'm better off using the SMP client for my CPU.
I cannot fold with a GTX260 and 9800GT.
I'm not entered for the GTX260.

2x SMP
Not Together, the 260 will do great
No, but you will be for the GTX285
