    Even with the reported waning membership, this is a great and very useful board with a fine community to boot. So label me quite happy to fit in here.

    In that case, get yourself a lilypad. We 've always had a spare one in the Pond for incoming tadpoles

    Are you Folding yet ?

    I am sure he is around.

    I do get emails now and then.

    This whole mess could have been avoided somehow.

    The membership is waning, but what we do have going is excellent if nothing more to continue to help Stanford and its research.

    Re: I hato say this

    Hello, I can't believe what has happened to this place as far as active posting. I remember all the knowledge members like Klondikekit and others brought to the forum. Hundreds of people active on the boards at any one time with even more guests. What has happened? I guess if people's mainboards don't work now they just throw them out rather than tinker with them or try to improve their performance. Or buy a $399 system from Walmart.

    .

    I know; when I joined Folding, right here, we had 265 'Actives'. I remember that very well, because I was looking at that figure always and was pushing for action if it started to go down by 10 or more ...

    That was (the Fall of) 2004.

    Since then, many have left, many don't Fold anymore or very little.
    Some went because of real life (as they call it) needed their time too much.
    Others became too disappointed or lost their jobs.
    Others left the Team to go elsewhere.
    There are lots of why's ...
    Anyway, it is Summer and that 's the usual time for a lot of people shutting down through the Heat and high power bills, much higher than they were a few years ago.

    Many big names have left and people who join these days visit the Pond much less than members did in the years past. Sad, but the truth ...

    So, here we are with less than 100 'Active' Folders and a lot less active forum members.

    Re: I hato say this

    Yes, there is so little going on.

    I do keep folding for a good cause, but the banter and back and forth is gone from the forum.

    I am equally guilty.

    Too many things going on in real life, I believe, that is taking away from this.

    Sorry to see this happening.

    I see both you and Eric retired.

    I cannot run this myself.

    Too many other things going on.

    Yes, the joy and bantering has ended.

    I see so many pressures; especially power, costs, global recession and its impact on many people.

    I am semi-retired. I never thought I would have to work again. However, I now work a part time job to help make ends meet; so far so good.

    I never thought I would have to move out of the home I have been in for almost 30 years. But we may have to do so in the next decade or so.

    With you and Eric gone, I will have to resign as well. You guys were really the mods. I never really did much and I know it.

    Re: I hato say this

    wow a sad day indeed. Three major loses in one day. Have to say that my major folding took a break for the summer. Once it gets a bit cooler my new i7dual 260 rig willbe folding.. I only hope that whomever steps up will be half as good as you three. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Thanks,

    for a long time I did it gladly, to help out everyone of the Froggies.
    It was always a shared load though

    Always been happy to help out anyone who was like I was myself when I joined AMDMB.com (in 2001)

    We 'll keep in touch

    I know that traditionally, many have to stop Folding because of the Summer heat. I had to about a week ago; I even can't bring the in-house temps down because we don't have Airco.
    I think that it would get up the power bill too high anyway; we have a low tariff, at night, but then there is no heat ...

    See you later !
