    Quick question...I'm sharing a 1MB connection with 3 housemates. Does F@H hog all the available bandwidth?

    Cheers.

    Nope. Only to download/upload work units, which are like 200k.

    Far from it - will only connect to the net every 24-48 hours, and then only for about a minute.

    I'll gladly be able to help some time in the near future - I now have a spare PC due to the wife just getting a new one. It's going to be a download box, but I need a few bits for it first that she stole for the new machine. When it's setup and ready I'll be on-board :)

    I thought I'd wandered into the DC Forum for a moment there! :eek: Quite confusing! :D

    Yes, join us! Our Folding team is doing pretty well recently, and we're climbing the tables at a rate of knots! :)

    It is my mission to get everyone doing TKC!

    It takes but a couple of minutes and can then be left alone, accruing kliks :D

    We need I reckon another 400 members if we want to get to the top!

    Climbin' climbin' climbin'!

    In other words, we need probably 30% of OCUK's daily visitors to sign up - no problem!

    Especially all them gamers and SC types :cool:

    We're gonna reach the top and never stop
    And then it ain't gonna bother me

    I wanna be a man mancub, and stroll right into town
    Be just like the other men, I'm tired of mopin' around
    Oo be do do I wanna be like you-ou-ou

    Hmm, time for my medicine :(

    Thankyou sir :D

    Any project really....Seti is the one which we've fallen behind on badly, but I think the Folding team would see the most impact....the Seti team needs a serious fleet of machines due to the loss of several fleets :(

    Folding is also more fun I suppose, a smaller team so the competition is more intense, and there's more sense of making a difference.

    Oh, and you get Mr. Rich 99 million off your back too, he's terrible at teasing us Seti lot over to Folding :D

    you think the folding machine would see the most impact ? Then i'll do that, though i'm not fussy either way, just happy to help

    Will get on it now

    /climbs down off hilly's back

    welcome to the team :D
    under my sig you may find some useful info \o/

    Folding@Home will love your rig, Seti@Home is currently experiencing just a few problems (web page is totally borked) hopefully they will be sorted soon though :)

    no matter what project/s you choose we all get along pretty well - apart from the odd few die-hard seti crunchers who think all other projects are just pure eeeevil :p

    OK...

    I've just started running SETI on my machine and joined the OCUK team - it should get quite a bit of time from my PC as I don't use it much at the moment (need some new bits & pieces...).

    The missus said she'll help as well - running it on her new 3.0GHz P4. Might get her to do folding?

    And as I said before, once the spare machine is up and running that will be munching away as well :p

    Curio - get the missus folding, an excellent cause and not too geeky (Berserker's words :p), just don't make any jokes about folding sheets as you're likely to end up hurt :D

    Welcome to the team Mekrel, you'll appear in the stats within an hour of your first WorkUnit being completed and returned :)

    Anymore for any more?

    Must be some other people who could donate their CPU time to a good cause. It can be fun but you'll barely notice it if you don't want to, other than that warm feeling that you're giving something back to OcUK :p
