Yeah theres a little performance drop, depending if you configure its CPU usage to idle or low priority. I always set it to low and experience no noticable performance drop when browsing the web or orther menial tasks. But SuperPi tests confirm around 30-40% increase in calculation times. Memory usage is usually pretty high with the SMP client so if you have a software running that is sensitive to high memory demands (like my video surveillance server running DVR software) folding may not work on that machine.

On a side note, I was wondering if anyone had some information about the NvNews / OSNN / SP merger. Did the teams merge, combining points or did some members have to abandon their old team number for one of the others, with a team name change? Reason I ask, my 'old' team is going through restructuring since abit is R.I.P. but we have a jackass running the show who doesn't want to change the team name (because of his username), even though we had a team of a handfull join up. The majority of the team wants a name that better describes us, 'United' something-or-other to better encompass multiple teams under the same flag. I just wanted to know if it's possible to combine teams in a neater way than giving up on a particular team number altogether, and forcing the new join-ups to start over from zero.

Congratulations, I'd rep you for the prodigious folding accomplishment, but it seems we don't have that ability anymore...:(

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
