Hmm, if you stop processing at certain points you seem to loose your current completed work. My home CPU can only be on ever so often.

You can set how often the program will save the work and the program will continue from there next time (the default is every 15 minutes I think). You get points when you complete a whole working unit, but you can do that distributed over several runs.

List of top 1000:

There are so many teams with fewer CPUs than us, so its a matter of time before we get there.

See the estimated future totals for team firefox:
http://www.statsman.info/folding2stats/html/39299.html

Ours would not be so dramatic, but I'll bet we're getting within top 1000 soon.

I have been playing with the console version at work for unconnected machines. I've set it up on a few, but none of the machines has completed a unit yet. I hope the copying to my machine plus uploading will work.

Johann_p is coming way too close. The man has five processors running and that's unfair...
On the other hand, 'Europe' will firmly head the list ; )

HAH! Tremble, Europe. In addition to my main system, I just pulled an old 400MHz box out and got it set up doing genome foldings. Yeah baby, you'll be buried 15 points at a time!

If you add up all the Dutch boyz' contributions, you'd have to support sending them a big statue or your first born or something. Why are they so cool? It must be the weed.

No kidding. I'm feeling a bit inadequate here with less than 1000 points.

The world would go to hell without Holland... This country will once be the last place where freedom rules (and perhaps a little chaos). Spewey, if that happens, do you want shadow or myself to pick you up from Amsterdam Airport? :)

PS: you're all invited. We'll steal a van or something.
