My Pentium III typically takes 4-5 days to fold the latest 186 point WU's. I just finished one and then watched the new one start. The new one takes 4.6 hours to take one checkpoint. 460 hours total, or 2.7 weeks!

It must be that 755 pointer they call "Tethered Vesicles" and I call "Vethered Testicles". :) It's actually a good one.
I agree though that 4.6 hour checkpoints are absurd.

Would it even get done before the deadline?
