    Is it possible to get other consoles contributing?

    and bit-tech's CMS doesn't highlight grammar mistakes either ;)

    Petaflop eh, wow, nice =]

    Just joined the bit-tech folding team (late, but better than never), need to work out how to run F@H on multiple cores, :) so I may add my bit of contribution.
    Multiple instance with same username or different usernames?

    run multiple instances of the command line client. When running the initial setup, you have to go into the advanced options and change the machine ID of the 2nd instance to 2. Otherwise it will not work properly. It's rather simple.

    Anyone know if they have multi threading enabled software yet?

    I'd love to contribute my quad core.

    :)

    Absolutely! F@H actually has an SMP client that can utilize dual or quad cores, and you get a point bonus for using that client, too! It's in beta and should be on their downloads page.
