I've been on this forum for more than half a decade now. Not sure why I haven't joined this before. I should have really started a couple of years back when I started to let my machine idle 24x7. Better late than never :)

If you guys idle as well you could sign up :)
Yes, I know I bumped up a REALLY old thread. The point was to tell the new folk who've probably never seen this that such a thing exists. If it can get them to sign up, why not? :happy:

I'm installing it now. I've used the Folding@Home CPU client but it was too much of a strain on my system (the high performance client made my GPU squeal).

I don't know how a CPU works; at the moment "System Idle Process" CPU:98|CPU Time:14hrs, does that mean those cycles are being wasted and I could be using them on this software with no extra strain?

More or less, yeah :P With no extra strain, not really. It will basically use the CPU when it's idle so the SIP (System Idle Process) time will go down and the app will do it's job. The software should slow itself down when some other task needs CPU.

I have noticed the processor taking 80+% CPU when I'm doing nothing. :) I haven't noticed a lag on my system in weeks. Then again, I haven't done that many heavy tasks in the past few weeks..

I've ran it for 4hours so far while I was using Photoshop and they got to 67% and 89% complete and I didn't notice much slowdown.
