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?


What's the point though? Why compete if we can cooperate? By your argument we could also each one form a team for themselves.

I would prefer a "Mozilla" instead of a "Firefox" team that unites the efforts of all fans of Mozilla Suite, FF, TB, and other Mozilla-related projects, but the Firefox team looks like the second best idea and first best real team right now.

EDIT: just learned from this thread that there is a "mozilla" team too.

Well happy day. While it was uploading the data, it exited with an error. Unfortunately, the entire log was wiped and there is nothing remaining in the work subfolder about the first work unit. I've updated to the latest beta client, so hopefully it won't happen again, but it's rather frustrating.

This current work unit is much smaller. 400 frames as opposed to 2500.

EDIT: Eh, nevermind. I just checked the team stats and it looks like the upload succeeded before the crash.
Bye. Love to all. :)

If you look at Team Stats, most of the top 100 teams are about the website, rather than product(s). Hey, the 'team for themselves' already exists! We're all competing within the team!

Since I frequent MZ more than SFX, team mozillazine it is for me :)

That said, if there is a way to create an aggregator team including all 3 teams, I'm all for it.

There are no losses :) All workunits completed are actual workunits helping protien folding.

Not sure I'd switch teams, though. ;-)

well of course in the end there are no losses.


But wouldn't you want to switch teams if it, in the end, made the Mozilla team, the Firefox team, the whatever it ends up being team, in the top 100? Where it would be seen by so many?

I am currently folding for a non-Mozilla team, but I would join if we can get united. I don't want to see a split between sfx and mz. Mozillazine to me is more encompassing and therefore preferential.

Just FYI, a computer programmer for Ohio Department of Job and Family Services was fired for loading SETI@Home on a work server.

Plain Dealer wrote:Smith did not return a phone call seeking comment, but a disciplinary report says he told administrators that he didn't think loading the SETI software on the server was "that big a deal" because he ran the program only on weekends and on weekdays between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., when the server wasn't being used.

Since a merger of the different Mozilla-related teams is not going to happen, I have decided to go back to the Mozillazine team. Kind of feel most at home there ... :)
