You can help scientists studying Alzheimer's, Huntington's, and many cancers by simply running a piece of software on your computer.

You need that for bonus points. After you have complete 10 Work Units on the CPU slot, you will then get extra PPD point.

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):

Tom's Hardware folding@home guide: http://www.tomshardw....esting#t499233
[H]ard forum "[H]orde|Central v3.0 - Everything DC (FAQ's, Guides, Tips and Tricks)": http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1575052
Overclock.net "Complete Client v7 Guide": http://www.overclock.net/t/977412/windows-7-complete-client-v7-guide#post_12918150

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. :)

For some fun reading on Monster PPD systems. AMD 4P systems. :)

Also, similar to the Linux install, but with Unbuntu...

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