Default Folding@Home + Xfire & Solitaire - 05-12-2007, 00:33 | posts: 206 | Location: Washington

On my folding machines, I have Xfire and solitaire running at the same time. They have been racking up the hours slowly but surely, and I thought it would be neat if we could get other folding Gurus to run solitaire as well. (Yes, of course this is just for kicks.)



All you have to do is download Xfire, make a "Solitaire" account, and just be logged in and running solitaire while your machine folds. The machine is going to be running anyway, so why not run solitaire? If enough Gurus would do this, we could have a "Solitaire League."

If you do happen to make a solitaire account, be sure to add "ilovesolitare," "ilovesolitare2," and "fredbobjoe" (My personal account) to your list. If you wish to run solitaire, post the Xfire account name that you make on this thread.

Solitaire isn't available on Linux, what a shame.

Besides, Cancer research and Solitaire just aren't quite the same to me.

Why: Because I love solitaire

Also, Finch, you don't have any Folding machines running Windows?

Currently not, but you have inspired me to do so, on the fear server.
