I started folding about a year and a half ago. I started with two machines at my previous office (Dual 1GHz G4 & 400 MHz iMac DV), got laid-off, installed it on 3 home machines running OS X (Dual 1.4 GHz G4, 1.2 GHz G4 & 400 MHz iMac DVSE). I landed a freelance gig at an IT company, they got me a "new" 1.25 GHz G4 so it was added it to the mix and I talked them into letting me install F@H on two 2.8 GHz PCs (even though I no longer work there they kept the Mac because they loved it and it and the PCs are still folding for team 3007). Then I got hired fulltime at a manufacturing company, they got me a Dual 2 GHz G5 so I added it, then I got a G5 for home so I added it too. I also have a 2.8 GHz PC at the office which also got F@H installed. I went from #108 a year ago to #19 this week. I'm pumped! Adding the G5s really started increasing my numbers. I NEVER thought I'd get within the top 20. Amazing! Definitely a DaddyMac slap on the back moment! Sorry, I just had to brag!<br><br>I still have 3 OS 9 machines running SETI for the Apple Team too. <br><br>
congrats ezyrider! i'm a big folding fan myself, but unfortunately i had to take my farm down a few weeks ago. hopefully it will be back soon. are you top20 in overall or in a team?<br><br>cherry: just click my sigpic to learn about folding. it literally takes 2 minutes to download InCrease and than you'll be helping than on and you don't even notice it's running. it's a good cause to devote your empty cycles of your mac. it doesn't slow down your mac at all. and it will only use like 300-600k a day of download from the net, depending on the speed of your machine. let me know if you need any help.<br><br>

I hadn't checked my status in a while and when I checked a few days ago I was shocked I made it that far. Being a competitive type I'm still pushing for the top 5. But that may take a while, those guys are serious number crunchers.<br><br><br><br>
