    Good job T77 :toast:

    I don't worry about the electric bill. The trick is to find computers that are on someone else's service. :D

    Thanks guys:)


    As for the electric bill: I see it as another form of donating that extra money to the research in fighting cancer. Which is true if you think about it.;)

    Yes. It took a lot longer than I expected when I first joined. I really wish WCG could crunch on a gpu. I could've split my services more equally between crunching and folding.

    As it stands I have 105k for crunching, but 270k for folding, and I started both about the same time.

    I think you can, but it counts separately for that project I believe. It's called GPU grid or something like that.
