    Nice! Will do. I am inadvertantly under a different team right now and will switch to the TFW team when I get home from work and get it kicked off.

    I think SETI@Home is a great idea, but this is hella more productive. No PS3, but I'm signing my PC up.

    So this thing runs when the PS3 isn't being used? Wouldn't that just help to burn out the processors even faster?

    You run it as an application as and when you feel like it. You don't want to even download it, there is no obligation to do so.

    speaking of which do enough people here have a PS3 to start a 'what's your user name' thread?

    I thought there already was one... again, I AM TwinTwist.

    NO SPACES.

    They are for Xbox users only, it would seem :(

    For those of you whom haven't joined a team yet, now is the time. Tonight is the big "fold-a-thon" where everyone is supposed to leave their PS3 folding overnight. Join UP!

    *Deefuzz casts thread resurrection*

    So I am on the TFW2005 folding team now, but there are only 6 of us! What gives?

    I know there are several more PS3 owners now, so I figured I would bump this thread up to see if we can recruit some more new blood into the TFW2005 Folding Team.

    Check out Primus's first post, and then add yourself to our group!

    Sweet, didn't know we had one. I'll join tonight.

    For those of you guys who have been folding. Have you noticed some of those spots on the globe map, where people are folding like in the middle of the ocean? There's like no land there, not even a remote island. I wonder if those guys are folding from an oil rig or a ship somewhere. I want to Play Warhawk from an oil rig :D
