I hooked up a 200MHz notebook. :roll: F@H assigned it a 79.9 point WU!!! Not surprisingly, even running 24x7, it will not finish before the deadline (big red X showing in Electron Microscope). How can I abort the current WU and request only very small ones?

It looks like such a slow machine is going to be all but worthless, but not willing to give up, I stopped F@H and killed everything out of the folder except the app and the core, and ran the configuration again, this time selecting a preferance for GAH, whose work units apparantly don't have deadlines? Maybe it's just the luck of the draw, but this time I've gotten a low value work unit (only 13.9) which this machine MIGHT be able to complete in less than 35 days.

I read where work units are actually NOT assigned based on the speed of the client machine. Certainly my getting a 70.9 point WU assigned to a 200MHz notebook supports this.

You guys are wayyyy too freaky about the folding stuff. You do realize this may actually not result in a cure for cancer? :P

That may be true. But one can hope. I have lost all my grandparents to cancer and that is what drives me to do whatever I can.
