I'm finally Folding...

(180/600) 30%..... :).feels good. seems slow though, how long does it usually take to complete a work unit? I'm using Windows Client Version 3.24, is there a faster Version or are they all about the same?

Depends on the unit too. There are some that will fly, and others that will bloody crawl.

Right-click the folding icon, Statistics, My folding, select unitinfo.txt and tell us the name of that WU.

I've not seen any 600 WU's yet, maybe it's a new class which takes a lot of time (and produces a lot of points per WU).

you can usually assume that the higher the point value, the longer this thing is gonna take.

There are exceptions to that rule though. See http://folding.stanford.edu/psummary.html

see 841 vs 909

This is interesting, it's not listed on the main project page. Given the fact it might be a tinker (slow one), I'd allow it to complete. Some units are specd to be run for 50 days on a celeron 500.

It looks like yours will complete in a day or two, we'll find out more then.
