Yeah, I have been watching us drop. I don't think there is enough interest around to drive it up again. I tried a few months back to no avail. Thats cool though, we'll just keep on trucking. We may not be a powerhouse but look what we have already contributed. Even without the boost Jim gave us we have made one really big dent. I'll keep on indefinitely myself ...

Its been almost a year since the team was started, so considering the short time (relatively speaking) that the team has been folding I think we've done pretty well for ourselves, even without all the points Xciter churned out for us. That said, it was inevitable that the folding fever would die down at some point and our output would stagnate.

Personally, its been fun but i'm not terribly committed anymore. Last week a hard drive died in one of my dedicated folders (700mhz celeron) and I havent felt like scrounging around for a replacement to keep it going. I suspect that as long as nothing breaks I'll keep folding but if it gets to the point where I have to start fixing things then my folders will go offline for good (my main rig aside).

Top every little bit helps :) oh yeah.. you might be 5th in rank but you're 3rd in points per day!

I just look at this page and see all those zeros and it sorta makes me sad. But we did get a new member, DracoAureus, so I guess all is not lost :)

Since the only machine I have FAH installed on has been sitting connectionless in my brother's room ever since school ended in May, I haven't been able to do anything for a few months. (I wouldn't even dare attempt running it on my family's machine; the damn thing would probably blow up just to spite me. :P) I'll be back at school in a few weeks, and I'll probably start it up again then.

In the next few days I should have the laptop back folding again. That should help a little.

I started folding, but when I booted my PC up the next morning, after almost one minute of being in XP, my monitor would shut off. Booted into Safe Mode and unistalled it, the problem went away...

Sounds like a simple configuration problem. Visit our links page phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=3477 and check out the F@H Service Installer http://www.bluetentacle.co.uk/dc/fahservice.htm
