    Please consider changing your folding clients to TechPowerup!. With many members folding under the same user name we will create a super-folder and reach the Top 5 individual folders worldwide! This will give TPU a bit of attention from the higher echelon teams. We intend for the promotion to last a week after we meet max PPD(250K+). While you will not accumulate individual points, the team will and it's all about the science of folding anyway. Buck Nasty will replace the points you lose during this promotion, but you must keep track of your PPD and PM him after the folding promotion is over. C'mon guy's, help cure disease and put TPU's name on the worldwide folding stage!

    The exact user name has to be entered as TechPowerup!

    Buck Nasty is on board with all guns ablazin'(83K) for the endeavor. It took a little bit for me to realize the pure genius that the idea has. Kudos WhiteLotus! It would bring attention towards TPU and all points still go to the Team. I'm all for using TechPowerup! We need to get everyone online with this idea. WhiteLotus, add a poll option to this thread to get feedback from the Team. We would need 201k+ to hit the top ten.

    Edit: Created user name "TechPowerup!" and folding 8800GS(3770 PPD) under that name. All we have to do is get everyone else onboard.

    So we're going to quit folding under our own names and just fold collectively under the name "TechPowerUp!"? I'll do it... why not? My pc does 5k ppd if I leave it run but I will never actually get 5k ppd because I have games that need playing. more like 3k ppd most likely

    We would only do it for a week or two to get TPU's name in the top 10 single folders. It's just a little gimmick.

    I'll sort out SMP and GPU client on my new install once I've got everything else including my internet sorted out.

    I have the DOS clients, how do I change the name? Whenever I launch them it goes straight to folding.

    When does this run from. I cant afford to keep my PC folding all day everyday, but if it is a one off to help folding and TPU I'll join!

    right click on the shortcut and make another shortcut from that one

    go to properties on your new shortcut

    and at target at the very end of the file name (so "<file name>") enter " -configonly" without the "", save it and fire it up, will take you directly to config options

    indeed we are, literally just for fun, pool all of our points together and launch a super folder!

    If we can get into the top ~20 people will see us and we all win.
