Ahh.. they've advertised at spreadfirefox.com
we need a mozillazine.org news article!

Maybe I'll blog about it tomorrow.

Actually I blame you. You need to be a vfrnnr instead of vfwlkr in this case.. :)

Why don't we just join them?

When it finished the WU the POS crashed winFAH and took my WiFi with it. Also the visualization is annoying and jerky. Now it's running invisibly. I like that.

Can either the graphical or CLI client be made to run as a service in Windows XP so they'll be processing even if nobody is logged on (in other words, when Windows is sitting at the logon screen)?

I have a nephew staying with me while he goes to college in the city and we have different logons setup so the time taking to process this thing is far longer than it would otherwise be. I'm looking at just under a week total on this WU.
Bye. Love to all. :)

I agree - why don't we - a large Firefox team that really accomplishes something would be nice. I guess I will join all my computers from my "team" of computers I own which made it to rank 2199 to the Firefox team.

I think we should combine the two teams. I am on the spreadfirefox team, but only because I saw it first :P


WIth the amount of work machines doing this on the mozillazine team, we could get the team in the top 500 easily.




Please?

The MozillaZine team has another member. Axel has folded one as well. My brother's machine is calculating as well, although he doesn't know it. Is that ok? 8)

We're all accomplishing something in either team. Getting one in the top 500 wouldnt necessarily mean more downloads.. what's the harm in being competitive amongst ourselves?

Mine will be done in... 1h:14m:28s at the current rate. Not bailing for firefox here, sticking with Mozillazine (Firefox will probably never be my primary browser, why should I).

Btw, anyone have a suggestion regarding my question six posts up?

I dont know if a service mode is available.. but if you use winxp's switch user, instead of logoff, f@h keeps running

Oh, I know, but performance degrades a bit. Still, I guess that's the best solution so far.

EDIT: Well slap me around and call me Shirley, the question is answered already! Folding@home has it's own forums where someone already asked it. :)
