    I don't let my PS3 fold anymore, I know it's a good cause and all but eh, I want my PS3 to last as long as possible considering I payed launch day prices for it and I don't think leaving it on folding is the best way to go about that.

    Then theres the power it'll use.

    Joined the cause. The name is Fuchikoma (my PS3's network name) since it does all the work, not me.

    I've not done any folding in ages - if my PS3 is on, then I'm playing it!

    Otherwise, now that it's in the bedroom with me, it'd be too noisy to have on through the night - would probably make the room quite hot, too.

    Got an nvidia 8 series and above graphics card?
    Folding @home now runs on Nvidia GFX hardware, delivering performance probably faster than the PS3. I can complete a 25000000 frame project in around 2 and a half hours

    A standard PS3 uses somewhere in the region of 200W of power, so it's like leaving a few lights on in your house. Not really that much when you think about it. I'm currently folding for GTAforums, I've got about 76K points, if I'm not playing on my ps3 I'm folding. My crappy laptop folds 24/7. I'd say it would take my laptop a week to do what my PS3 does in a day.

    I thought a little and decided to install screensaver clients on all office computers at my work. The only their function now is heating the air

    Current prices is sky high in Sweden right now, but I'm going to join and fold some for the WipEoutZone team.. hope it still exist!?

    More people should contribute to Folding@Home. I imagine it could make a change. The app is pretty great too
