    Hey guys, i currently fold for OCN and i am new here. I am thinking about switching over to TPU. I fold on a q6600 at 3.6, two 8800gts's a core i3 330m, and 2 c2d laptops.

    Now my username is Josh154, if i switch team's will all my points stay on my account? Im about to break 600k.

    Oh and congrats to all you millionares im hoping to hit my first sometime soon :)

    You,ll not lose your points in the stanford stats, but if you change team, you'll start at 0. You'll see in kakao that you've now got two different sections.

    Ahhh okay, well i may be making the switch over. What would happen if i am folding for tpu on my i3, two 8800gts's and 2 core 2 duo's and still folding the q6600 over at OCN and all smp units are still running the same passkey? I am folding on a team over there and it would be tough to leave them completely.

    Hi Josh, welcome to TPU :toast:

    Like has been said your points with the team will start at scratch when you switch over.

    But if you want, I am sure we can help you reach your 600K points pretty quickly again ;)

    EDIT: If I remember right, the passkey is only needed for -bigadv work units.

    I believe the passkey is tied to your username and I believe it's yours no matter where you fold. I also believe that if you want to receive bonus points for SMP A3 and -bigadv WUs you need the passkey.

    Jump in here with both feet.:respect: If you cut your ties with OCN I bet they won't realize you're gone.:D

    Josh,

    If you fully commit to fold for TPU(with all avail clients), I will replace every point that you have accumulated under OCN. How can you refuse that offer?

    Hmm it's very tempting guys! It's hard to leave my little team back at OCN. Is there foldathon's and stuff over here like at OCN?

    You don't need a passkey for SMP A3 unless you want -bigadv WUs. My Mickey Mouse dual Xeon (only 4 cores total) runs SMP A3 without a passkey. It does just fine.

    You're missing out my friend....Bonus applies to A3 WU's as well as -bigadv's. Better get that passkey in there (you can use your -bigadv one if you have it).

    Not really. The thing is so slow it wouldn't get any bonus anyway passkey or no. It always takes longer than "preferred deadline" but just makes it under the final deadline. I just use it because it's not on my electric bill and every point counts for TPU. It also has a 9600 GSO and gets about 6K per day.

    Foldathons and Team races are coming around the first of the Year. We are revamping the team options to make folding a little more fun. We may be smaller and have less F@H traffic than OCN, but these guys have lotsa "heart" and there is no better F@H team when it comes to generosity and unselfishness.

    Group Hug!

    Well said. Reminds me of the famous Bear Bryant quote, "We may be little, but we're slow." Like the Bear, these guys are too modest. Little? Yes. Slow? Hardly. TPU folding has few members, but we're a powerhouse! :toast:
