I meant the original X-Box, not the 360. The 360 and the PS3 are more powerful by an order of magnitude.

Just a thought, but has anyone seen what the Folding@Home community has done? I mean the raw amount of CPU cycles that have already gone into this project must have produced SOMETHING by now. I can understand why Seti@Home over years still hasn't produced anything, there just might not be anything living close enough to us to find, but come on! Folding proteins? I don't mean to go against the grain or anything, but has anyone thought about that? I could be wrong and there could be a dozen sites that show what has already been produced or found with this project. Just a thought.

I started donating CPU cycles a while back.  My contributions just look so bleak compared to the elite task force of PS3s dominating the field.

Any contribution is accepted, and nevermind the PS3s, they aren't in competition with other non-PS3 Folders within the team :)

(one of those PS3s is mine, lol)

But anyways, keep Folding Your Technolust and remember that what matters is that you participate. :D

Also, I like the smell of anuses

Eventhough all signs point to this being part of the evil server's scheme to take over the world, I'll go ahead and sign up.  I've been looking for a reason to dig out a few of my older boxes :)

I been doing some folding of my own, had my ps3 setup with default settings for about 20 WU.

Then I came across the hak5 team and decided to join, done about 25 WU under hak5 group now.

Can get very warm with the ps3 on for 8 hrs when im sleeping, will be a good thing in the winter when its very cold but for now i think WU will slow down.
