I am kind of surprised how slow it goes.

I have it running on 3 machines (and 2 of them are 2 unused Dual Xeon servers which are doing nothing but running the Folding@home software.)

So far after 3 days of running I still have not completed one WU yet.

I also wish there was documentation showing what everything on the screen meant.

It takes time to fold them. I've found it to be about 72 hours on average, sometimes more, sometimes less.

I think the program figures out if you are running a fast computer, and will give you more complex folding problems. You will get more points for them than a simple quick unit though. It does seem to mix it up a bit though.

My deal has basically been to set the folding software up the computers and forget about it. I still have about 9 or 10 more machines to setup. I've just been unable to get around to it. On my notebook I was constantly watching it and finally I said, I am driving myself nuts checking, now I just let her rip.

Good point. Doing this for about 3 years now I found that after setting up your team, just let'er go.

Every so often I will read about the project that its working on but other than that, its just let it run.

Thanks for putting the team together! I just joined, myself. I've run Folding@Home in the past, but never as a part of a team.

Awesome news! Glad SBS started up a team! I'd join, but I've been with another team for a few years now and I'd hate to quit them right now.



-Fold On!!!!
