    Think you will be safe for a while, I cant afford to fold 24x7 and I'm going away on holiday soon so there will be a big blank nothing for a while from me :(

    Also gonna have to slow down with summer coming along, its getting waaay to hot in here for my liking.

    Should make a good appearance throughout winter tho, hopefully will be building a new media PC on a i7 2600k and will have it doing bigadv 24x7 all winter.

    Just made the 8 million mark today! It's still slow progress but I'm slugging away for 10 Mil. My new hardware configuration is making a difference for sure even though I'm not running it all just yet ;)

    I'll also be in team position 85 before midday tomorrow, which as far as I can remember will be the highest team position I have held in my 6 years of folding :thumb:

    Chugged thru 25 million earlier this week whereupon two machines fell over - obviously, over-exuberant celebrating which I frown upon :D

    Recently broke 100k :D.

    Although it may seem like small time points to the rest of you F@H giants, I think I'm not doing too badly, averaging about 11k ppd. Hopefully will boost that up when I get round to putting on my heatsink and OC'ing my 2500k.

    Just ordered my zalman GTX 470 cooler, so i should get this in time for the weekend to fit this up and hopefully get my precision unit on-line for folding.

    If I do get this going 24/7 then i would be looking at 19k ppd from this rig :D

    Im also gonna sneak a new GPU into a redundant PC here to up things a little more, maybe a 560 if i can wangle it :D

    :lol::lol:

    Given the terminology in your sentance , i believe you to be 128.5 years old? :D (its the petrol bit that gives it away :D)

    Mind you, i have a Fiat 500 hire care at the moment, and it cost £ 45 to fill it up and you get 500 miles a tank :jawdrop:

    Beats my old Hilux which was £ 100 to fill up and get 400 miles to a tank :wallbash:

    When I started driving in 1976, petrol was 45p a gallon (4.54 litres) then went up in a few weeks to 68p. I am not quite 128.5 years old, but 'our lass' could well be - I dare not ask!:naughty:
