Just to say that I am running [email protected] on my PC. (Username: camerongray)

Not sure how much progress I will make - Look at my specs  :(

Every bit helps -- truly.
We welcome you aboard.
In my lifetime, there was a time when most of this would've been done by hand, or at best, on mainframe computers.  What we're all doing together (distributed computing) is pretty remarkable.

Wow that was quick.

I wonder how long it will be until I finish my first WU. It says 31 days! And the PC isn't on all the time.

If I get a PS3 I will use that - I wish they did a PS2 version - I have 2 working and one broken (but fixable).

I have a p4 dell that I fold on and it usually takes awhile to do too, and its not on that much.  It always makes it by the deadline though  ;D  Maybe by around 10 days

It sure will!

Sounds like it should be able to do pretty good

Welcome to the team cameron, thanks for folding.
The PS3 is benchmarked to do around 600 points per day if left folding 24/7, not sure how the deadlines are compared to the other clients.

I used to use my PS3 for folding before I even new about this site. I broke my PS3 though so no longer until I buy a new one. It folds extremely fast compared to a PC/laptop. You will soon rock up those work units.

For the initial outlay of money that is pretty good.

I noticed that, too.  19 work units, and zero points.  Not sure what's going on...

Cameron, what kind of work units did you sign up for?  Which client are you running?  You've done a bunch of units, and no points??   ???

I've never seen that.  Maybe Calum knows more. 

(Patio would know more if he started folding something besides paper airplanes... ;))

Yes, because he's showing units completed but no points.

    In the configuration options you can select the size of WU to fold.  You can also request new advanced
     scientific cores and/or work units if available. 

    But that's all a moot point, either way it should have been worth some points.  My curiosity got the best of me on Cameron's issue, so I asked on the official [email protected] forum.

    "This is most likely due to incomplete WUs (Early Unit Ends). While some WUs terminate 'normally', a large number like this indicates WUs being returned from an unstable or improperly configured machine, perhaps running the GPU client.'

    So if Cameron is still here trying to work out these kinks, post your client info and what you did for configuration.
