    Now I know we are all into folding for the gfx card, but the competition is over. Like Z said, lets not let that stop us from folding. It it an amazing cause, and you never know if you will be saving a life, or maybe your own life down the line. You are being a part of something without doing much, only donating processor time (which can be paused saved and restarted when you need your CPU power). Although I play world of warcraft on full settings, raiding Naxx, aq40, bwl, mc, and ony while folding. Unfortunatly, my score isn't the greatest cause my friend turned my comp off while I was out of town for an interview. I plan to fold, and revamp my old comp to fold nonstop.

    Now heres the real question, we are all in ATI's lil' group which is cool, but I would want to Represent Driverheaven myself a little more. Can we get our own folding team started? Like said before I think it would be a great community project, and a little competition is always fun :D.

    Fold for a CURE
    its free, easy, and saves lives.

    Right now, no. For a variety of reasons. But that is not to say we won't some time in the future.

    Alrighty-o, I got that, I was more thinking since there are quite a lot of DH'ers in there now. Since we were asked to assist, could the name be changed to ATI and Driverheaven or sometin cool like that.

    team ATI consists of people who aren't members of DH.So that may not work out.

    I just posted what I think is a pretty good solution to having a "DH team" in another folding thread - basically it is to have a type of subteam that is the FahStats website is setup to understand and handle almost like it is its own team. Linky here for the [DH] subteam. See the other thread for more details.
    Now to finish my first WU under my new folding name [DH]-Peter123 :)

    I have 14600/20000 now, estimated 19 hrs to go.
    I remember the old UD days... I was running it on Pentium MMX 266MHz, the processing was so slow that I had to change the system time so that the WUs didn't get aborted when they reached the wall time...

    I fold for MozillaZine Team at the moment. If DH had their own team I'd switch 'cos DH is such a good forum (and I blow with the wind).

    What is the exact reason that DH hasn't got its own team? I don't understand

    I've been folding forRage3D for several years mainly because DH doesn't have it's own folding team.. If DH becomes a permanent team I'd switch both my comps.

    I fold elsewhere too, but I am glad to add a folder here and if I ever figure out how to install in Linux I'll put a second one on the ATI team

    Okay my linux machine if plugging away, I just mis-confugured it a dozen times or so, but it's working well now.
