    I wasn't trying to imply that he should have found it before, because the thread is huge and searches didn't work for me either. I only found it because I knew approximately where it was. Hopefully my previous post will make it easier to search for because of the word "temperature".

    this gives me an idea for long threads such as this. We could use the standard vbcode notation using a code vBulletin does not recognize to enter keywords, this should make searches more effective. For Example:

    [keywords]
    keywords, searches, find post based on better searching, this is just below the posts on CPU temperature post, You really want to join Folding@Home, TeamUbuntu Rocks!, you get the idea, I like dolphins
    [/keywords]

    It's an idea anywho.

    Yeah, a good idea. Maybe even some kind of tagging mechanism too. Say I search all over for safe CPU temperature information, and I found that one of the posts in this thread was helpful. I could tag the post with "safe CPU temperature" so that it comes up higher in the results list when I or someone else searches for those keywords.

    Whoa, don't get carried away there! Personal tagging, now that sounds like the article bookmarks I get when I am logged into TechRepublic so I don't have to remember what I searched for every time I want to re-read something I found informative or helpful before. That might just be too simple and easy - and that just don't fit the Linux way. It does fit in with the Ubuntu way though.

    This could require some scripting of the forum however, and I am not sure where we could possibly find a good scripter.

    Incase anyone is interested, I found this web site:

    http://www.hardfolding.com/index.php?go=8

    which has a lot of folding@home things to display what you doing etc.. (just scroll down past the windows ones to get to the linux ones)..

    Add another team member (although I've actually been on the team for several weeks now; never knew this thread existed). I've done 18 work units so far, good enough to break the top 100 (#98) on the team. My little Linux system runs F@H 24/7, non-stop. I check it's progress every so often and I think it's averaging a completed WU every 2-3 days.
