    Yeah I would need to do that too I'm currently in team Gamesey, to be honest though I don't do a lot of folding on the PS3 its either serving me directly or it gets switched off.

    Figured I might as well start one.

    When the firmware comes that allows you to wake on LAN via the PSP, I'll access it during the day to download stuff from the store in the background and run F@H while it's doing that.

    Yay finally a team to join that's worth supporting!

    Mind you, I fold on my PC instead.

    Yeah but the PS3s folding power is probably way more than your PC, I downloaded the PC app and it started screwing up my other programs so it was swiftly removed.

    Yeah, i know, but i just dont want to leave my ps3 running unattended.
    F@H also screws around with my other programs - if i have it running, all my full-screen programs minimise.

    Moved over to team Wipeoutzone I think I'll let my PS3 do more folding because today it hit me, I don't pay the power bill

    I'm not understanding the stats/scoring system at all - Lion's PS3 has been folding like... someone who's just emptied every dryer in the worlds largest laundrette... *ahem*, but for some reason I've scored more.

    I was wondering how the points system worked too maybe bigger units earn more points?

    Will running this shorten the life of my console? I mean it is hammering the cell isn't it?

    It'll have no more effect than just having the console on would have.

    A processor isn't really a failure point for hardware, the other parts of your console will wear out much sooner.

    mine keeps having communications issues. it'll complete a unit and fail to upload results, or fail to grab a unit to work with in the first place (and the retry delay gets longer each time). and it doesn't seem to cache them to upload later either...

    edit: interesting, I just noticed that my PS3 says I have completed 2 work units, where that page says I have completed 9
    I imagine this is related to my lower than expected score.

    edit2: 3 days later...
    if I wasn't taking breaks from folding to play Dirt or Wipeout (which is way harder than I remember, without a neggie) then I recon I'd be beating you on points by now

    edit3: another 9 days later...
    kickass! top of the tables

    Probably a little late, but I'll join as well

    I just figured out how it works and what it actually is.

    I've not been doing a lot recently, but if I'm playing a lot of Burnout at the weekend then the controllers will need recharged overnight, so that's as good a reason as any to do some folding.

    I'll join when I return from class tonight. I usually only run it when I'm away for a couple hours and I want to come home to a warm PS3 =P. Hopefully reviving this topic will get some of the people whom also just got a PS3. Let's cure some cancer!!

    Edit: this totally needs a sticky

    I signed up too. Love the maps with all the clusters of lights on - the UK and the Netherlands seem to be the hottest places. It`s like being in a plane. If only they could add some gameplay and let us use that view to drop bombs on France it would be perfect. Joking, FFF. Let`s get WZ into the top 10,000!
