    Welcome to AdrianX joining today.

    Make sure you let us know if you have any questions or issues with boinc. I know people say this about their own teams all the time, but we really are one of the best, friendliest and most dedicated teams on WCG. :toast: :toast: :toast: Double on the friendly part - and helpful. check out our 'crunchers helping crunchers' thread.

    Second that twilyth.
    That's why I joined this team. I had been on another one (I didn't even crunch for WCG), but I somehow got onto the forums, read a bit, and was really impressed with how nice and helpful everyone was. Communities like this are rare on the web, in my experience. Here, everyone really helps each other out, and is positive and uplifting.

    Thank you awesome people for being one of the best web communities I have ever experienced! :)

    Thank you, you guys rock! :rockout:

    I joined by Ion's request, but I haven't seen him around in a while.

    I posted in the old thread by mistake, nevertheless, hope I can contribute to the team ;)

    BTW, do you guys know if I can help with my PS3 also? Is there a PS3 client?

    Once more, thank you guys for the warm welcome :toast:

    WCG to my knowledge does not have a PS3 client. (Maybe run Linux on your PS3, then run WCG Linux client? I don't know if that would work...)
    However, Folding@home does (go here), if you wanted to contribute to the techPowerUp! folding@home team.

    Thanks, will look into that, sadly I cannot install Linux to my PS3 anymore, but I'll download the F@H client ;)

    Thanks for your reply :)
