    125 points isn't that many, but I guess if I could get 48+/day (at the 30min/WU rate mentioned above), that might be worth it. I mean, with 2 WUs complete since Sunday, I have 650 points for the week so far.

    eta: I've received over 1,500 points for a single WU before, but that usually took several days to complete.

    Forgive the ignorance but what do the points do?
    Sorry but if you are after something like $ you are out of luck. There are tables like the one in the OP and the more points you have the higher up in the table you are. It also shows how much good you have done for the cause.

    I get 10,000+ regularly on a single WU.
    It usually takes a day to complete on my i5-3470 @ 3.2GHz using the desktop program.
    Daily output from the Chrome app was lower due (I think) to lost time uploading/downloading so many WUs
    Nothing to see here, move along

    Oh no! There's now a team called 'Christians against cancer' which is gaining on us! At current rates, they'll overtake us in less than 2 months. I was just able to add a work machine, but it doesn't fold very fast, despite the dual 2.33GHz cores. Well, a few more points/WUs is better than none, I guess. Still wish we could get some people back to folding again.

    On a personal note, I'm less than 20k points from rejoining the top 20 in total points on the team!

    One desktop just died, first guess a capacitor overheating in this record breaking summer. I confess that I won't be spending a lot of money to revive it just for F@H - it wasn't used for much more than that. I just got one more laptop and will try to teach it folding. Another discarded laptop ran Win ME, and was too powerless to have F@H installed.

    I finally realized (I think) that the passkey thing isn't just to keep others form using your ID (What would the problem be if they did? Wouldn't their results just add to your/our points?) but that there's some points benefit to it. Are there other boosters that I've overlooked?

    ... the passkey thing ... there's some points benefit to it.
    There is? How did you find that out?

    ... record breaking summer.
    Really? Ours has been pretty average. Had some real heat very early, but since then it's been very tolerable. We haven't even been in the pool very much this year.

    Cool

    OK, did a little research and found out about the passkey thing:
    Perhaps more interestingly, we have introduced a new Quick Return Bonus (QRB) points program, which is tied to passkeys. To earn this bonus, you must use a passkey.


    Just installed it on the work machine, will add the passkey to the home PC later today.

    First off, a big welcome to the team to Quetzacoafold! I see you've been working your way quickly up the charts and are now nearly in the top 250 team members in the points standings. Good work!

    Next, now with 3 machines working — with passkeys installed — I've been raking in the points this month! And in a pat-myself-on-the-back moment: I'm back in the top 20! Just passed Anticontrame and according to the projections, I should catch Enoemos within 2 weeks! And the team output has been erratic, but in 3 of the last 4 days we've exceeded the point total of what our trend line has predicted. I'd love to see that trend line start turning more positive.

    And a big welcome to Puck, whom some of you old-timers may remember. I posted about the Folding@Home project on Facebook and she decided to join on to the team. She's already in the top 250 team members, catching up on Quetzacoafold. As for me, I'm having a record month. Oh, and I noticed that the team trendline is indeed inching up! Nice work to all team members!

    And Puck has just overtaken Quetzacoafold! They are both in the top 225 now!
