PS3Blog [email protected] Team Breaks into the top 500! |

Thanks to everyone that has contributed to our [email protected] team! Keep up the great work. The PS3 has been making a huge impact. The donor name PS3 has been #1 on the Donor List for quite a while. Just a FYI, PS3 is the default donor name. If I were you I would change it to your own name. Might as well get credit for your work 🙂 My donor name is xBerserker

[email protected] has been around since 2000. So it’s going to get harder for our Team Ranking to get higher from this point on. Keep those machines folding, it’s for a good cause.

Besides my PS3 running the [email protected] software. I have 2 work PCs running it 24/7 for the most part and my intel iMac running it off and on at home. You can download the software here.

I’ve been thinking, it’s nice to be able to leave the PS3 folding for the weekend and not worry about it getting overheated. The PS3 is a quality machine and very dependable.

Currently we now stand at 497th. We are even beating Joystiq (517). Here are the top 10 people in our team. I’m amazed how much the top 3 people have folded.

For those who are yet unfamiliar with the term, [email protected] is a project which was started by researchers from Stanford University. The project involves the study of protein folding which has been thought to be the root of diseases such as Alzheimer s Disease, Parkinson s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, cystic fibrosis, and some types of cancer. The aim of the project is to help the researchers to build models and simulations of these proteins by lending them some CPU power and a bit of bandwidth.

    The only thing that has put me off running folding at home is that I hope to get many years use out of my console especially as I imported mine to the uk after the japanese launch at a much higher cost than retail and I really don’t want my console wearing out becuase it’s constantly crunching munbers for folding at ghome does anyone know what effect using this will have on the lifespan of the console?

  • I have to stop folding for a few days, it is getting to hot here ATM (~25°C in house temperature, we dont have AC (usually nobody has in Germany)), but I’ll continue as soon as its cool enough 😀

  • Great News Tosh. I’m glad we made it into the top 500. It looks like at our current rate It’ll take 2 months to break into the top 400. This is actually a great accomplishment. Just think a group of people that never met, except for online have banded together to do something useful and are now the 497 best at it in the world. Please join our group, things can only get better.
    As far as the PS3 getting cooked. I have AC and I had my PS3 on continuously for about 2 months. lately I was knocked off through a combination of holidays and electrical brownouts in Toronto. Damn Construction season.

  • ExtremeOverclocking stats I’m like #16 YEAAA buddy!

    Who are these mysterious top three people? I haven’t seen those names on this forum.

    I’ve been trying to leave my PS3 on folding whenever I’m not playing it. At first I was worried something would break, but it has folded nonstop for months with only a few hour interruption every few days without any problems.

  • ok MR. # 2…. its yo world boss …

  • I didnt mean, because of fear my PS3 would break, but because my room temperature rises too high^^
