    939 rig up and folding 24/7 for TPU. Will add my 8600 gts to fold when I can, but the program keeps crashing my rig randomly.

    I fold for every person that needs help. I understand bta's and Alpha's posts but why single out one person to fold for? There are hundreds of thousands out there that can benefit from this and it shouldn't take a prize to get people to fold. Hopefully folding will be recognized as a donation and we can claim the power consumption used as a tax write off!!

    I think this thread is a big BS. :shadedshu

    C'mon TPU has his OWN F@H Team!!!

    IN MY OPINION THAT THREAD HAS TO BE BANNED FROM TPU!!!

    IF YOU FOLD FOR TPU OR FOR "Bjorn3D" THE RESULT IS THE SAME. SO IF YOU ARE A TPU MEMBER AND WANT TO FOLD, GOTTA BE FOR TPU!!!

    Were all folding for the same cause, Bjorn3D is just pimping it's folders. Whatever it takes to get more people to get the folding going.

    Is ridiculous to be using TPU to promote "Bjorn3D".

    Non sense at all.

    Yep, I've seen it. My issue is that existing folders are already working as hard as they possibly can. Folding for another team will not change the work we do or bring us closer to a cure. Although my heart goes out to his family, I am troubled by his motive for prompting a switch to Bjorn3D's Team. I suggest we keep folding for TPU and keep Stephanie & Scott in our prayers.

    the reason i started folding about 2 years ago was because alot of people in my family died of cancer and my dad has kidney cancer.


    I mean come on folding for prizes is a perk but i have been folding for ~2years for no prize just hoping that one day they find a cure.I could be the next one to get cancer or something maybe one day my kids(when i have them) could.

    My 9600 GT is fairly overclocked (Shaders at 1970 MHz), and running F@H GPU it stays 66 C or below (and this is Australia, f@ck!ng HOT atm). I'd say 70C or less would be fine for an 8800 GT.

    Darn brother of mine, looks like he stopped folding again already. And my 280 has been overheating, it's starting to warm up here in Canada. At least at the start of July I'm allowed to start my air conditioner, and I'll funnel air to both my rigs! So yes Oily, you finally get to pass me heheh!

    im folding for stephanie for the month guys... If nothing just as a symbol of support for scott at B3d. I know ya hate it. But it shows support to a devastated man and a very sick little girl. It doesnt matter which team you fold for as long as you fold... but if he looks at his team's stats and sees the world folding with him, it makes him that much happier - if i can help with that, by all means i will.

    Im not folding for a gtx 285 or whatever... im folding for one month to show support for a family who has a very high chance of losing their little girl to a fatal disease. I really dont think folding has anything to do with her condition-but that's not the point.

    EDIT: @ mmaakk if you fold for something greater than why do you care so much about team stats?

    I fold for TPU. That's the place where I get support having any trouble. Team Stats is just the result of our hard work.

    I'm really disappointed,I'm on my way to add more gpu for TPU and suddenly somebody come with a nice storie and everybody run away, is that what you call a team.?In my mind it a cheap shot from Bjorn 3d.My prayers go to Stephanie and her family,but please don't touch my team pt's.

    Explain me ! Bjorn3d.com WU are better then TPU WU ,or the gtx 285 act like a sucker

    I fold for Tpu since 2 month now 24/7,and YES i want to see Tpu in top 10 one day.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this is a possible ploy by Bjorn3D.

    I fold for the greater cause, but you all need to stop hating a man who is trying to show support for his daughter in every way he can. By encouraging new people to fold, he is not trying to "steal" your precious points.



    So chillax, on my chillax couch.
