    Folding/WCG allows unused CPU cycles to be utilized for finding solutions to medical problems such as diseases/conditions

    because these things facinate me, I've been folding on ps3 since 2008 and I haven't turned my ps3 off since, now I have a pc that is so much more powerful and I can fold on both ps3 and pc, i do what i can to contribute, wanted to make a team because ive donated 2378 work units on ps3 to team 0 and wanted to see exactly what i was contributing on my own

    actually i doubt the team makes a differance its just a way for people to seperate themselves from the rest, how boring would it be if there was 1 team and 1 very huge number... it wouldnt make any sense and each user would feel like he isnt contributing enough to make a differance.

    Best of luck to you and your new team. I think you will find that the TPU team is a relatively small, yet extremely dedicated and close knit team. While I doubt the success you may have in having our members join your team, definitely check out the rest of our F@H forum and feel free to ask any questions you may have in the threads we have available.

    Fold Strong :rockout:

    TPU is a small team by most standards. 44 active folders last time I looked.:)

    Quite the contrary. The more competition, the more work is being done. The researchers behind it don't care which team folds how much, only the total number of work being done.

    As He says they only look at the whole picture, the more users folding the faster the researchers get to the desired result

    this oddly reminds me of the chuck wepner and muhammad ali fight "wepner: i believe every fighter has a punchers chance."

    fun fact: the chuck wepner vs muhammad ali inspired the rocky movie series.
