For the last couple of months, we hve enjoyed the fact that no team ranking lower than us was folding faster than we were. That's no longer the case as there is one team gaining ground on us. Granted, they're not gaining quickly, but I'd still like to leave them in our dust.<br />
<br />
I think this is a bit of a wake up call for everyone to step things up another notch. If you're not folding, please consider starting, and if you are, do what you can to squeeze a bit of extra power out of your farm.

You know, there are nearly 3x as many guests as there are registered users browsing the forums at any given time. Most full time members are only able to increase their foliding power by upgrading or adding rigs to their farm.<br />
<br />
It's expensive.... and not nearly as productive as getting NEW folders. New folders are the best way to increase our production.<br />
<br />
OCN should have some sort of large banner on the top of the Home Page advertising folding and it's objectives, so that the guests can see how important it is. <br />
<br />
Upgrading is fun too though :)

Mm...<br />
<br />
Maybe off topic would be a better place to start?<br />
<br />
(And to say it again, I am getting a 3000+ up soon, and almost for sure a conroe within 2 months..)

<br />
I am not in a team.. I just fold for the broad OCN team.. It's what I would reccomend.<br />
<br />
<br />
Also, WHY in the WORLD is our production going DOWN?

</div>The first thing to do is get yourself folding for team 37726 if you are not already doing so. Once you're up and running, you can either join one of our internal teams (several are looking for members) or start your own. To start a team, simply post a thread in the folding forum with the team name and the number of members needed, e.g. "Team My Team (3 members needed)".

Is there any particular settings I should choose from the options?

if i fold how much do you reckon my system will slow down while im using the pc, for browsing the net or editing or gaming. I know it only uses spare clocks, but what effect would it have do you reckon?

Cool. My pc spends a lot of time idle so why not put it to good use.<br />
<br />
Do I have to wait for a while until I get the little score thing in my sig?

Well I've got Windows Vista (a ressouce hog), VirtualDub encoding in the background, Napster playing some music and IE running with a couple of tabs... there's of course the AntiVirus running in the Background too.<br />
<br />
Really, it does give up ressouces when they are needed... I've heard that some people turn off [email protected] for gaming, but otherwise it works flawlessly.

DarklordJay- About .001%.. Seriously.. Only thing is, PC has to 101% stable, because it is at 100% load ALL the time...<br />
<br />
Nothing you will EVER notice<br />
<br />
And on the score thing, once you complete your first WU, your folding name will show up here: (NOT instant tho..)<br />
<a href="http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampage&teamnum=37726" target="_blank">http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/m...&teamnum=37726</a><br />
<br />
AFTER it shows up (And ONLY then!) Post your folding name in this thread:<br />
<a href="http://www.overclock.net/overclock-net-folding-home-team/3050-folders-check-here.html" target="_blank">http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...heck-here.html</a><br />
<br />
Then an admin will see it, and configure your little postbit thingy.<br />
<br />
<br />
BTW- This site:<br />
<a href="http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=37726" target="_blank">http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...php?s=&t=37726</a><br />
Is the best for monitoring.. Just enter your folding name (Exactly) in the search box on the left.. TONS of info.

If it's 24 hour prime stable you are golden..<br />
<br />
If you AREN'T stable in ANY way folding won't work... But it isn't that hard to get a stable OC...<br />
<br />
Btw- I wouldn't reccomend folding with a PC under 1Ghz.. Just too slow for the energy it takes...

</div>With the site upgrades in progress, the tool to add new folders is currently unavailable. Once that's back, I'll get everyone caught up. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
