      Also, power usage???

      according to the Folding FAQ, the PS3 uses 200W of power while folding!!! that is nuts and more than what my fridge uses. funny how i don't see it as 200W as my electricity bill hasn't significantly gone up (pushing aside energy becoming more costly )

      Did it give the time frame? That is probably per-unit.

      It's not supposed to be "fun" while actually folding stuff. It lets you donate your computer's or ps3's power to help research unexpected protein mutations.
      The fun part is that it's a little friendly competition between teams as well as individuals within each team.
      There was another thread in the computer forums, but since I crossposted it, they decided to delete the one in the computer forums and leave this one. I have been thinking about requesting for the mods to move this one to the computer forums...

      signed up, my ps3 is constantly on so why not contribute to research that could potentially help me some day.

      Went out of town yesterday, left PS3 folding. In 2 hours PS3 will have completed 11 work units. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I agree about the Terminator thing, though. Between the wi-fi and the updating I'm thinking that PS3 is gonna sprout legs and kill me in the middle of the night.

      Microsoft kills your 360 with the red ring of death before things get out of hand.
      Sony on the other hand, those cheap shots. They make you kill your own system AND provide your own coffin too.

      if my physics class memory is correct, the unit 'watts' takes into consideration of time already which is per hour. I believe its: Power (W) = Voltage (V) * Current (mA)
      its still alot of energy. but who am i to say, cause i've been folding like crazy.

      I'm going on 32 I think. Thought I had more (for PS3). But I have been very busy and since I repainted my apartment (mainly my room) I had nothing connected. Will recheck my PCs and will sign everything into the team this week [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The PS3 would need only 0.000003
      nanoseconds to calculate what your
      trying to do here.
