    I like the idea of that and would be more than happy to help, but i dont have a working computer to do it from yet, hence looking for parts. I use my phone's browser to find sites and put up requests like this. I will be more than happy to donate some time once i have a working system, but im stuck until i can complete this build.

    well i have just started folding for team 10, 24/7, got 25+ tabs open in chrome, building a website, editing photos on ONE 17 inch non dvi monitor
    ...i get the feeling if you got some of parts sent to you we not see you again
    ...loved to proved incorrect hope i am
    Infact if you still hear and become part of the OC uk community like i hope to do, i will have no probs donating to you

    FREE

    i have some ide hard drives tested good 40-80 gig (most are 60 gig)
    I get them for the wife's best friend, she has a internet caf in Thailand but was going to cost me £80 to post them all so just sent 1/2 of them
    free to folders ..

    PS
    looking forwards to my 42 inch IPS panel arriving mid jan:)

    Parts up for swapping if possible

    I have a dual xeon socket 604 mainboard and two 3.2ghz xeon processors (no ram) lying around unused and am after a monitor with dvi support. If anyone can help me out, let me know please? Once i have my desktop working, i will happily donate some time to folding. In fact, i would happily leave it folding while i sleep on a regular basis. Please note, im using my blackberry to post to the forum and get emails from the forum. Thankies :D

    Just started folding on my gaming rig. Use to do it a lot on ps3. If anyone has some decent thermal compound (I'm using the stock crappy one) or a RAM cooler is be very grateful.

    couldnt an admin set up a group for people who do the folding? one of you guys could then tell them who folds and who doesnt, and stops this mix up?
