Hi Vester! I'm so sorry it's taken me a few days to notice and approve your post. Work has been keeping me very busy.

We've got some things in common with UD and Find-a-Drug!

I'll have to check out Bohdi. I'm playing around with Mint and another distro.

Welcome to the forums!

Welcome! It sounds like you know your way around computers and DC projects. :D

Your 7790 would be a welcome addition to our small but still climbing Folding team. I have a 7770 which gets about 25,000 points a day, so you could top that easily! Meanwhile, that CPU will crunch well on a bevy of projects we participate in.

Here are some links, in case you haven't seen them already.

Our Boinc Stats:

We also have sections throughout the forum to discuss various projects. So if you have questions our want to start a conversation around a given project, go for it!

Thanks for the team number. 32453 didn't work! :icon_cheesygrin:

Pecosriverm, I said when my first granchild was born 26 years ago, "She's my sweetie, she's my honey, she's the one who's gonna get all my money!" I wasn't far wrong. I love all eight of my grandchildren. The youngest (twin girls) are going to be 13 in April. I have three grandsons and five granddaughters. When I was young, I wondered what I would do in my "old age" and now I know. They are a constant joy.
