    Team TPU is an animal. Compared to 90% of the teams out there TPU is showing the two needed ingredients for success: growth and and enthusiasm for the project. :toast:

    Can you choose what to crunch for? I don't support most of their list.

    I registered just so I could say congrats! I crunch and fold on XS team and have been reading what you guys are doing. I hit TPUs main page daily for news but have not prowled the forums much.

    Anyway congrats on your numbers! Keep On Crunching!!

    Very Glad to be part of it.

    No doubt WCG will be as successful as our folding@home team is.
