I got a laptop that I can convert to fold for one of you if you need it. It's nothing great, and gets about 30min per frame on the console client, but it might provide for some extra juice...

Great....you get more machines and I almost blow one up!! The wifes computer is up on the top floor. Last night I had it folding away, left it alone, came back a little while later to check temps (it runs a bit hot, methinks) So I look at the little utility......

71C!! ABORT FOLDING!!!

I'm surprised the silly thing didn't let all the magical smoke out. So, I have retired it as a full time folder...I may try running it at night, we'll see. No excuses, here, just the facts :lol:

TOM - I just beat you to slipping past N1k - I just checked and he is WAY behind me - he is 397 and I am at 396!

N1K - you said you were down, you must not be all on line yet if you let me past. Beware of TOM's Pentium D he listed above - those can fold SMP at 30 min frames just like C2Ds with XP - believe me!

Rover dude,,IF I had stayed with my other folding name,,I would have been far ahead of you both by now. :oops: :P
But, to give poor little youngster a "Fair" Chance to win this, I started over from scratch with a new name . Just so the little fella can't come back and say it was unfair.
So, I'm just working my up thru the ranks all over again :!: :!: :P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, TOM, I know that both of you are packing more horse power than me, so imagine my surprise when I checked the stats to see who I was sitting by. But I am not sitting still either...

I liken your race to be Obi Wan from Star Wars 1-3 Vs Ol' Ben Kenobi from 4-6. (Alec Guinness is the "real" one to me, so I am dating myself).

That's more true than you know....Obi-Wan (Alec) sacrificed himself much like tired did in our first race...can the young upstart maintain his lead? Who has a greater command of the Folds? Will I ever run out of bad puns? The answers are out there...I'm just too lazy to look for them. :lol:
