Yes, it has.

In other news, I am back at home and have started folding again. At the moment only at my laptop, but I think I'll get my PS3 back sometime next week.

Back to the number one spot on the team. I've soooo been there; done that. Someone needs to knock me out of the number one spot. :twisted:

Running my PS3 nonstop is pushing its sorry luck, so I doubt I'll be claiming the glory anytime soon.

I'd try but I doubt I'll even breach the top 10 anytime soon. I can pull 10-20k a day if I really try but even then it'd be a couple of years to match your current score :( . Maybe running my PS3 24/7 could provide me with a wee boost... and I have a media PC downstairs that might be worth a couple hundred a day...

I blame the two years I took away from folding, I did it for a few months after the demo then forgot about it until the full release. I note monthly outputs dropping off as well (4 mil in january to 2 in July), a lot of people must be doing that now.

PS3 doesn't amount to much - at least if you want to catch up to Bara ^^°
A bit more than 600 points per packet at one packet every six hours or so, iIrc.
I had that thing running for almost 20 months.

2400 a day isn't terrible I guess, certainly better than the single core performance by a mile. Still, got enough machines running in this room of a night, last thing I need is a PS3 humming away as well, belching out heat even if it is for science.

Well, this is fortunate, I have a home server that only serves movies and such to media devices (WDTV Live boxes) and its on all the time. So this seems like as good a way as any to do a little something with it :)

Welp, bought myself a shiny new GTX 660 the other day, figured I'd try some folding on it. Turns out only people who've been approved for their beta program can fold on them for the time being :x . Quite annoyed at that. Still, got the old i5 chugging away doing some work.

Well, this is an interesting project. I feel like I've heard of it before.

I don't have a great computer or anything, but I try to keep workload down because of that, so I've probably got some processing time to spare. And I guess the KS team can claim my help, since this is the first 'group' I've heard of.

Edit: Alright, proud to say I've got it going. Curiousity requires I ask if there's a way to get one of those fancy signature banners.
