I remember coming in and seeing a forum/thread titled "In memory of. Post who you fold for" Looked it up, but no luck. Maybe I was seeing things? Anyways, thanks for all your help

Yeah, here's the guide for the GPU client:
As for the CPU, I'll explain a little.
The SMP client will throttle back if other applications need the CPU. So if you need to use the CPU for 10/15 minutes, leave the SMP client running, and it'll allow the new program to run fully, while losing a bit of performance for the client. However, the SMP client runs on a bonus points system. The longer it takes to complete a WU, the less bonus points, and the less PPD you will get.
One of the more commonly used techniques is adding the "-oneunit" flag. It will close the SMP client once the current WU is finished. That way, you can run other programs as normal, but won't be Folding on any WU, so won't be losing any performance. Then, when you're finished with the program, simply start the client up again and Fold as normal.
