The HEXUS Folders continue to do us proud and are still rising up the Folding@home production tables where we're currently ranked as 143rd in the world!

With our aspirations of breaking into the top 100, however, what we could really use is a Folding Farm like this one:



That's 23 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 graphics card working together in aid of Stanford University's Folding@home distributed computing project. The end goal, for those who aren't already aware, is to help understand protein folding and misfolding in the hope of finding cures for many well-known diseases.

Want to do your bit to help? Well, whilst we can't donate 23 NVIDIA GPUs to anyone, we can encourage you to join the HEXUS team (ID #69776) and you can find detailed instructions on how to do so over in our dedicated distributed computing forum.

For a closer look at which teams we're hoping to leapfrog in the coming months, here are the HEXUS.net folding statistics as of April 8th 2009:

Wow. Just wow.
:surprised:

That is just obscene… don't even want to think about how much that would have cost! Shame it doesn't say what ppd that chucks out though… Any guesses?
I'm guessing this is the guy in the video: http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=366389

So that's 268,140ppd average!
You have convinced me to start again. Cant remember the team number tho?
