OK, new thread for the next week.
First, a big shout out to the SETI and BOINC members who have added CPUs to the effort. Remember, its Team 36120, NOT Team 0.
Next, congrats to all for bumping our team up to 456 processors and 209 user names. We have a number of new users in the team, with over a dozen folders now from GetLoaded.com all popping onto the hit list this week.
Special mention to Klutz Dohanger, who has quietly volunteered over 100 systems to fold. That is 20% of all of the Free Republic Folders systems actively engaged in research. Klutz is the first to earn 100,000 points.
We now have ten members who have contributed at least 10,000 points each. Malsua, Ken in Texas, Andrewksu, LSimpson and kingu have all reached this milestone, and Uriah will join them next week. Great job!
Even more impressive, our team now boasts 113 members who have folded at least 1,000 points. That is more than the entire number of CPUs folding for our erstwhile left-wing environazi competitors!
Free Republic Folding@Home Stats Page
On the global front, Free Republic Folders is now listed at # 487. We are poised to overtake (today):
MaximumCPU (these guys are serious overclockers)
ECU-SCIS-Cluster (82 CPU cluster in Australia)
Greenland HS in Winslow, AR Tech Labs
and the Univ of Stoney Brook Math Club, Stoney Brook NY
As we continue to grow there are a number of milestones coming around the bend:
Top 400 by next Friday
Top 300 by the end of the month
We have 610,000 points so far and have folded over 5,000 WU. We will reach:
750,000 points by Jan 24
1,000,000 points by mid February
Thanks again to all that are helping us advance science and promote the peaceful use of computers.

New Folding thread news out to the ping list!
Thanks to one and all for the great response as we go forth to conquer disease.
Thanks for your efforts, and congrats to klutz!
I was wondering when another thread was gonna get started. The other one was getting a little long in the tooth. :-)
Thank you for the new thread. I rather like the "1 new thread per week" idea... much easier to work with. :)
I will post a new thread every weekend, usually Sunday morning. It gives a good update of how far we have advanced in a week.
You can always start a new thread if the old one is several hundred replies. We don't mind :}
I got a work unit that's taking over a week to complete!!
It appears Uriah has already done so...
I've finished one of those [239 pts.] and have started another one [241 pts.] They take forever, but the points, when I finally get them, make it worth the wait.
I am amazed how we have grown. Two month ago we had 24 systems, mostly mine and my friends. Now we produce more points in a day than I produced all month.
I just refreshed the stats page and we are at 485!
Uriah is indeed over 10,000 points. It looks like Malsua and I will wait for a later update to pass our next milestones.
The key to growth is indeed more systems. Some suggestions:
Family and Friends
Related groups (Protestwarriors, captainsquarters, etc)
For example, I'm gonna swing by my wife's 13 person office next week. With her permission, I'll install it on her 'puter. (Never install the software on a box you don't own or control, such as a library 'puter, without permission from the owner. It's a violation of the terms of service.)
Meanwhile, over at the loony bin:
88. #2,231 --- more CPUs!!!
Wash, dry. . . fold at home!
Say what??? I've just been foldin'. No wonder my output is so low...
