[email protected]: November Update

Still with us? Good, onwards with this months member information.


From this month I’ve decided to do a re-think on the milestones, so instead of just the extreme milestones, I thought it’d be nice to honour every one, including the little fellow. So here we are, the top 25 milestones*.

That’s it for this page, next up Top 50 folders*2, then graphs, because we all love a good graph.

*1 – Each point milestone is divided by 10, each WU milestone is multiplied by 10. The table is then sorted by this value, then name.

*2 – Because I like multiples of 25.

  1. Woo Hoo back in the top 20. I’m aiming at top 15 now. Got my pc slowly folding in the background just need to get the programme for my graphics card.

    • And 29 overall, next stop the world.

  2. been thinking about changing my team to sixthaxis not sure tho as ive spent last few years in the registers team!

    • We have a better community team :), plus there’s the chance to win one of three £20 PSN vouchers :).

  3. Thanks for the honourable mention, I’ll do the odd WU when I can! What does the protein folding aim to discover anyway?

    • Diseases are produce when proteins misfold, [email protected] helps discover why they misfold, which in turn help to discover how to stop them misfolding.

  4. I might just leave the PS3 folding and do other tasks as well. I mean its for a good cause right?

  5. Ah, I made a bit of an effort this month, not a huge amount though. I shall do moar! Would like to get myself in the top 50 :) My PC isn’t contributing much lately as I’ve been on FFXIV off and on, and it can’t run that and folding at the same time. However, I am trying to get into a habit of putting my ps3 before I go to work and having it do a unit, just need to remember to set it away lol

    • Well atm you’re 58th, so you should be there next month. But yes, MOAR!!!

  6. good lord, how my WUs haven fallen!
    blame it on me being unemployed and Naruto Shippuden 2 being addictive!

  7. Electricity bill be damned, I’m trying to heat my flat using as many appliances as possible (hello oven!) might as well contribute some WUs whilst I do

    • oh and for any other cold students, laptops make great hot water bottles

  8. I watched a documentary the other day that made this project hit home properly to me. Obviously I can’t give you a link to it but you can find it on eztv.it, it’s BBC Horizon Miracle Cure – The Human Genome Project One Decade On.

    The show features 3 sufferers of genetic diseases, one young woman had cystic fibrosis, another had multiple recurring cancer and a man suffered from genetic-predisposed alcoholism.

    In each case, it was just a couple of of the ACGT letters in their entire gene sequence which caused the problem, and it really hit home as the show followed their trials and tribulations how a miniscule protein misfold out of billions or trillions can ruin a person’s life.

    An experiment is shown with 250 mice, each of which had a single letter in their entire genome changed at random; one mouse with a single letter changed chose alcohol over water 80% of the time (free choice from two intakes to the cage).

    So, [email protected] is an important project – keep folding! :)

  9. I only started folding as of last week and signed up for the TSA team. Without an operating radiator in my bedroom, my PS3 is now my only source of heat.

  10. could you link me to how to join your folding at home team please would love to join and help out
