Great Job Gag,

 

I wanted to do this myself a couple of months ago.........but was to lazy to get all the details compiled together correctly. I thought to myself, what if I was new to this Folding thing and i used the old pinned how to's, man would I be confused :pullhair:

 

Thanks again for your efforts I'm sure it will help all. :tup:

 

Keep up the effort everyone :clap:

Think it would be a good idea to redo the "Install" too.

 

Things have changed a lot since it was done.

Put norm's SMP service install, and a new SMP-GPU-Dual GPU-CPU-Dual CPU etc.

 

Might be best to wait a little while for the new client though. Boy I wish they would

hurry up. :hammer:

Thanks Lou for making this pinned.

:adios:

 

 

 

No problem, give me a shout anytime. I would also like to mention that according to the latest "wu" Radio is still folding, although no one here at the Pit has heard from him since July. All attempts to contact him have failed. We Pray that all is well with Radio.

Thanks for pointing that out :)

I resized the banner... hope no scrolling is needed anymore.

I'm not that good with banners/pictures. Its just a quick copy/paste thing in paint.

 

Maybe someone can make a real cool banner for the pitfoldingteam??

 

:adios:
