Just added a PS3 to the mix. I'm sitting at #11, hope this moves me back into the top 10.

Shouldn't all the new Playstation 3s out there, with the Cell processor, be accelerating this process and research progress to an insane degree? That's what I assume is happening.

It has for me. My work units and score have skyrocketed since I put the PS3 online. I've jumped from occasionally being inthe top 20 producers to consistently #7 with just adding the PS3.
 
I bought a PS3 the other night, and forgot to add Wackbag's team number... It's set up now, so I'll be adding my PS3 to the mix, too.

As a biochemist who works on this type of stuff you can't understand how valuable this resource is.

Granted, all this CPU time is helping ONE scientist's research. And he does TECHNICALLY get money from it...the more papers he publishes on results from the FAH project, the more grant money he can reel in from private and public sources. With every grant comes some salary AND helps him ensure lucrative job offers from other institutions which Stanford will counter-offer since THEY TOO get a cut of the grant money he pulls in.

Nonetheless, it's still a useful project and at least SOMEBODY is benefitting.

By default, Folding@Home doesn't run automated, unless you press the triangle button on the icon and hit "auto-start after xx minutes". See, the problem was, like me, I didn't know about that until just a few days ago. I kept leaving the machine on, and forgetting to start the program.

By the way, PS3 users: Folding@Home has been updated to v1.31.

Hehe ... I'm sniffing the underside of 4 million now....

I hope to get a 8 core Mac Pro (or 12 core if they come out) later this year and will be running again.

Wish I woulda known, but I've got a machine I built putting out 1760 points a day, but it's for the mustangworld.com team. Had I known, I would have joined this team.
 
You can change teams whenever you want. Hint Hint. Points don't transfer from one team to the next though, you just start back at zero with the new team. But your overall points stay the same.
 
I've been basically out for the last couple of days. We had a major electrical problem in my apartment building that fried both of my PCs motherboards, as well as my cable modem and router.

Getting on the internet and folding has been kind of hard, since I have to find a new place to live for my wife and kid before I brutally beat my landlord down.

I'll try to resume as soon as possible.

Okay, I thought I saw a thread about this on here, but can't find it. Is there still a Team Wackbag? I want to join it if there is one. I need a team # and stuff.


If there isn't one, anyone want to make/join one?

I can't think of anything funny.
I can join in too if that will help bump us up a little more.
