rat6fink, I was not talking about you. I was saying as a whole everyone that wants to fold should. A folding war would be great if people kept folding after the war. For now lets see how many people on the Legit Reviews team can fold just one WU on Christmas Day. I'm talking about all the inactive members. Maybe Legit Reviews could send out a E-mail to make it happen. Fold on :)

Sorry for the harsh reaction... #-o I apologize... Yes, everyone should fold. It's not that difficult, and we're helping other people when we do. I've had family members that were stricken with diseases that folding research is impacting. If only I knew about folding back then. And as far as the Christmas Day WU, I agree 100%!!!

I think it would be in the best intrest of L.R to give a 30 day heads up that a folding war is going to start. I think that we should wait til the 1155 socket issue is fixed. I also think that in order to win something that a person must be a active folder at least a week before the games begin. I also would like to see a thread for trash talk. I also would like to make a request that Darkstar, KnightRid and myself be on one team so that we can show how it's done. Everyone else against us. I think we will win.

Yep! Now let's get the trash/smack talking thread going. I know Mad_Goku your good for a least 100KPPD. I just need time to rebuild my old rig. That should make us about even.

I just ordered 2 GTX 460's. I need to upgrade/add some WC stuff and they should be online maybe by next weekend. I think it's time to retire that 4850 I won a couple of years ago. :) Anyway, I'm in. I'll just say right now that I'll decline any prizes that may come my way. I'm still feeling guilt over not folding with that processor I won from the last contest.
