so which of the 3 choices are best??? or do you like yours better??

I'm way cool with any of the 4 .... it would just be nice to be able to divide some of this stuff up into more distinct ?'s and that way we don't get topics that are 4-5+ pages long in less than a day 8O

So, eventually we'll have 5 teams, giving users the choice on what they want to run, but not yet. Build our team into the top 100, then start another. As to a new forums, it will be necicary in time, but now? It's gaining need daily. Now, as to an official homepage for this - will there be one for all the teams, or one for each team with different sections. Also who will design it?

Would just like to post a small tip. From what i noticed today while having the windows task manager open, using your mouse's scroll wheel can greatly take away from the amount of the CPU that the F@H core uses, in my case it got as low as 5%. I tend to use the scroll wheel constantly and never noticed until today the effect it had. Even if its only for a few seconds at a time, those add up after a while. This may only be the cause with my pc and it may not, but every bit or processor speed is needed if we want to make the top 100.

Browsing the net, recording digital video @ 10 mb/s, encoding video and gaming (the last two have the worst effect) also ding performance, as will anything cpu-intensive.

All the talk going on here you would expect the take-up to be better than it is. Only 30 members last time I checked. I AM #30.
