I get the feeling that the team page of folding@home already adds the points before a unit has finished. I looked at the number of total points I had yesterday, with a unit for 1210 points still working. Today, when that unit finished, I got a unit for 1760 points. I then checked the team page again and the difference with yesterday's total was… 1760 points.
Maybe that's how I get this high total of points on so little units. As I lost assigned units when I switched Mac's.

Me too! That is awesome! and yes, sometimes it can take a little time for the stats to update... and sometimes it even drops WU's.

But I find it really hard to complain to a volunteer organization about not getting my "points". ;-) (Even though I secretly want to.)

Personally, I don't care about the points. This is not and should not be a competition, the subject of health being too important for that.

Aquick note to John...

Recently I bought a laptop also. And finally got a wireless modem (speed is claimed to be equal to DSL). Just downloaded and and installed Version 5.3 on the laptop also. Now I have two computers "folding". By the way the laptop will also be on 24/7 except when in transit, or if a thunder storm is ecpected.
