    I have not been able to get folding's non-console to work, so we will probably be going with seti. (It won't install)

    seti is great, theres a graphical version or just a command line version, plus its available for many different platforms. I used to run the united devices one for cancer but soon stoped after my gf of the time dumped me (i was running it for her b/c she got lukemia and after me devoting 6 months to being with her non-stop at the hospitol she dumped me and wont talk to me since) and just stick with seti now, plus i think the united devices one found a few things that will fight anthrax.

    hate to post again but come on we need more people to sign up and download seti and start work today even before the webmaster has the team registerd with them.

    [EDIT]
    Or how about one of you mods who are interested make a sticky saying sign up?

    I'll take care of it when the team is setup. It won't help the team until then I don't think.

    well actually, if you are a seti user and have never joined a team any work units you complete before joining are automatically added to that team, so if we encourage people to download it, any work they get will be added to the team so it would help. Ive been a member of team gamedev for 2 years and it sucks, theres maybe 5 of us that are active everyone else quit or stoped running it, im sure we can beat them out fast if we get this set up, i konw it only takes a few minutes to create the team so we could have this up soon if the webmaster has 10 mins to spare.

    I think we should decide which one we're doing... Maybe a vote?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

As a side note, yesterday I installed seti on 8 of the computers in my schools business lab (damn those computers suck im guess p2 300's with three labs each with 50 pcs, compared to the cs department lab that has all 50 all new p4 2.2ghz dell pc's), just hope the admin doesnt uninstall it

    Nah, no vote right now. We're expirementing with them and we'll let you know. I don't really like the cancer one we have now though....we'll see, I'm working on getting folding to work. (Webmaster and I agree that cancer may be better though since it is more likely to help more people in the short term.)
