The title says it all. I just hope that we have a end of the year rally. Fold on!

I know you are doing the best that you can do. I hope you had a good time at BlizzCon Convention in Anaheim, I wanted to meet you there but I felt that the logistics would have been a issue. So many people and such. I know you have something in the works so I know you are trying. I think it would be a good Idea to implement the T-Shirt contest at the same time. I will stop folding when I reach 30 million points. I just hope that Legit Reviews will continue to be in the top 100 after I leave.
I have given it much thought and I feel that I need to save for retirement instead of giving my money to the electric company. I know that Spitter3, DaIceMan, wi-fuzzy just to name a few have done the same thing.

I would like to make a little rant. I have been folding @ home since 03.31.07 and I can't remember one time that [email protected] has said good job or thank you for folding. I do not recall ever that Legit Reviews has ever been recognized of being in the top 100 folding teams. I do not recall that [email protected] has ever said or e-mailed anyone or any team to keep up the good work. Why do I feel that this is a scam and [email protected] is just looking for free electricity to support their so called Independent research. I believe that [email protected] is more interested in big sponsors that will help with the cash flow rather than the little guy just trying to make a difference. I also find that if [email protected] is such a good thing to do then it should have some sort of tax deduction. Otherwise I find that this research is not sponsored by the Government and never will be. So I find myself wondering if all this time I have been folding that it was just a waste of time and electricity.

I've thought the same myself - when I had 5+ rigs folding away.. my thought was would it just make more sense to dontate money directly to the cause than to send it to the electric company. ie: can they get more from my $$ than I can?

well i cant very well fold on a pentiumD or 5670 :lol:

but I'm a chassis and sweet kit of RAM into my next system so far, but at 9 an hour and almost $500 a month toward rent + food I cant exactly just get to folding very soon :\
(but $900 later i'll have an i7 2600k, GA-Z68x-UD3H, GTX 560 TI, HX750)
