Very true, though we lost a lot of Folders to:

• People leaving OCN. I've been through the old threads here; majority of those people aren't even on OCN anymore.
• Summer. Just too hot for the moment for a lot of people.
• Costs. Obviously, not everyone can afford to keep it up forever.
• ATi. A lot of people just got annoyed with the lack of an efficient client for ATi. Hopefully when the full release of GPU3 is out, we'll get some of them back.

Don't we have more people on OCN than years prior?

Would costs be too great if people only folded say, 1 WU every 3 days?
It's better than nothing.

Yeah, but people who left OCN are still on the inactive list, dragging the % down.

Of course it is, but that's for each person to decide themselves.

If I could, I'd PM every inactive member and try and get them Folding again. But I don't think that would go down too well.

However, if I wait until GPU3 is working for ATi, I have an actual reason to PM them to start up again. So I'm jsut waiting for Stanford now.

And we're starting to see more and more people posting threads that they're coming back.

Yes, but a lot of people felt (and still do feel) bitter that Stanford still haven't done anything about it. Some moved on to BOINC, and others just stopped completely.

I'm waiting until GPU 3 (ATI version) comes out, and can't fold on the cpu since I use all my cpu power most of the time.

It's just life, a lot of people move on. Our active percentage numbers aren't anything bad compared to any of the other top teams

I actually stopped folding for a year due to inefficient gpu client for ati cards.

It'd still be nice to have at least a couple hundred more people though. EVGA has almost twice our number of active folders, and HardOCP and TSC have over 300 more active folders than we do.

Wait... what makes you think you're worth an entire 0.1%?

(I can make him mad now, since he doesn't Fold. Why did he think that would make me stop? Why?)

I think he's just upset that I suffered 511s and he didn't.

If you think that's odd... that's because it is. I think Chris is just trying to get me fired.

They have many Projects; we have one. No need for a manager.

Although Client v7 should get is close enough (we'd still need HFM though).

It's sorta hard to tell if you're joking online


BOINC is also nice, I've switched my C2D back to WCG
