Congratulations to Keeper on making the 100k mark, and for being pretty much the "power folder" of the group for the last couple of months
Spent Xmas with the family interstate this year - I left in the wee hours of Friday morning and got back late last night to find three out of five folding processes completed but unable to get new work. Annoying.
Its not bad. I have done it a half dozen times with no problems. As for wiping the hard drive. If your computer recognizes the CD at POST, you might still be able to boot off of the CD. You can test it by putting the CD in the drive and rebooting.
