If you have a ps3 you can then fold with it. The ps3 is currently the most efficient folding machine.

oh, is that what that option was....

I left it alone as I didn't understand what it was or what it did. I'll have to go and check next time I'm using it

Does that extension use a variant of BOINC? And can you crunch on GPU with the extension?

I thought the PS3 version ended like a year ago?

Yeah you can't fold on a PS3 anymore, it got terminated in 2012.

Getting back into folding now with the Chrome app; hoping to climb back up the group rankings. :) It's going a hell of a lot quicker on my PC than from what I remember with the PS3. :P

How can we see active members? Owait I see 12 active CPUs in the last 50 days, guess that's how you see, our overall team rank is quite good at 575 of 227622 :)

Does F@H still cause excess heat buildup? Haven't used it in... 15 years? But it gets real hot in here.

Yup.  It pegs your CPU to 100%.
