As a member of another F@H team (Tom's hardware), I welcome you guy to the fold!

It's great to see new team's coming around that have a lot of potential. I predict that you guys will be in the top 100 teams in a year or 2 from now.


Now I do see a few thing that could be added to sticky from F@H official site that could be useful:

The official forum: http://foldingforum.org/

The official News blog: http://folding.typepad.com/

​These 2 link will allow people to keep updated on any news that might come from F@H and the official forum's allow people to ask technical questions that only F@H themselves can answer (such as not being able to connect to a server or why am I not getting any points).

I also recommend watching other teams forums/sites. Many of them have very detailed guides and tip's on improving current systems and really powerful systems like 4 processor servers.

Just to link a few (you dont have to add these but there good sources of information):

Well hope all this stuff help anyone that might need it.

I'll be around if anyone needs additional help. :D

How long after you started the FAH client till you took the screen shot. It can actually take a little while once you get a new WU to get the updated ETA. Has it updated yet?

Thanks a lot for the info and well wishes. I have been looking at a lot of other forum sites as they are much more mature, to get info, trouble shoot, etc. Well add this info into the sticky. :)

Well, I notice I missed 1 more useful thing.

I dont use it to often but here a "WU Bonus calculator" (saddly I forget who made this) that you can enter your Project (WU) number, TPF and upload time to figure out what kind of points you should be getting.

http://linuxforge.net/bonuscalc2.php

Just a tool that might be helpful. :)

If i remember anything else, I'll come along and post it here. :)

Yep, [H] and EVGA are the kings in the 4P department (mainly [H] though.)
