Been a long time, but I'm finally getting interested again.

Have been folding with the PS3 the last few days (1 WU/day) and have now added my secondary PC. Hope to get the main rig up sometime soon.

According to FahMon, I have a Gromacs 4 GB worth 600 points.

Specs on this system are:

Win7 x64
Intel E6550 @ 2.33GHz
2GB RAM
Cruddy onboard Intel Q35 Express

-Steve
Phenom II X6 1055T @ 2.8GHz
Dual Boot Win7x64/Bodhi
8 GB RAM
Radeon HD 3450
60GB Vertex 2 SSD (For OS's)/750GB for Data

It's good to have you back! I have recently started folding again as well, mainly just out of curiosity to test out various GPU's that I have and see what I can squeeze out of them.

Until recently, the last WU that I turned in was in 2008! I was surprised to see that I wasn't at the bottom of the ranks from being gone that long. Sadly, I see that many of our other members stopped folding a while ago as well.

You think another recruitment drive is in order? Or is it a bit late for that?

Is it OK to post an occasional F@H team recruiting message on other sections of the forum, such as general, recommendations and tech support?

EDIT: By the way, where did all of my avatars go? I needed to make some new ones anyway....

I'm still alive, but haven't got any machines running folding@home right now, they are all doing something else until the end of 2012. I'm hoping to start folding sometime in the new year though.

Well, I'm back at it, just a couple of WU's a day from now on, electric is just too expensive to get back full time sadly.

..electric is just too expensive..

I hear you, Pete.. same here! Power is around 15 to 17 cents per KWH. But I will provide at least 12~14 hours daily for the F@H project.
All those work units help in the quest to resolve mankind's maladies.. in our life times!
