    Looks like you are really stepping it up for the CC.

    Thanks for all the effort Mind :toast:

    Are we allowed to start WU's before the competition begins and then turn them in, or is this considered cheating?

    I don't know, but it probably isn't in the nature of good sportsmanship.

    I believe the idea is that if you don't have to pause a WU to get it in after the start, go for it. For instance, the bigadv units will be starting upwards of 2.5 days early. "Stacking the queue" will incur the curse of the Jade Monkey. You have been warned.

    Between today and tomorrow I am going to try and setup my folding rig again. It only has one PCIE slot so I'll try to get the water cooling going again and fold with the GTX 295. If not, it'll be the 8800GT and my 5870.

    If you have one of the newer ATI (5xxx,6xxx) cards, then the new v7 client has greatly improved performance for them.

    See here for a guide/info on it -

    It's on the Stanford server, so it's trustworthy. Just override it.
