[email protected]: November Update

Winter’s well and truly here, so why not heat the house up*1 by setting your PS3 to fold away while you’re not using it. Think about it, a fire heats you up (good), but produces pollution (bad), whereas a PS3 heats you up (good), helps fight diseases (super good), and increases the size of your internet penis*2 (super duper smashing).

Or if you don’t fancy folding on your PS3, folding is supported on all OS types (PS3/PC/Linux/Mac) so there’s no real reason why you don’t do your bit. If you’re confused about what [email protected] is, or how to install it on your platform, please drop me a line via folding[at]thesixthaxis[dot]com or if you prefer to use the forum, add a reply to this thread, don’t worry if about if it’s been posted before, just ask away.

So we’ve been folding away for the past month like a billion trillion bees, but seems like us bees have been too busy playing in the snow, as we’ve somehow managed to fold less than last month, getting a total of, well, you’ll see below, but it’s less than 1 million.

Team Info

Nope, still not there, so we have another month to try and fold over a million, will no-one win one of three £20 PSN vouchers? Find out next month, when the saga continues.

This Month Last Month Change Score New Points Work Units
621 644 23 9,119,539 661,772 30,185

So only 660,000 points last month, that’s a drop of 3,000 compared to last month. I blame RedStarGlow for his week of reduced folding.

Team Radar

Oh noes, seems Microsoft have brought in some anonymous power to take the focus off other rival folding teams… seems familiar. Anyway, that means I’ve had to gap-fill with lesser known gaming teams, can you guess which?

*1 – The PS3 is not able to warm your box/cell/flat/house on it’s own. Keep away from fire.
*2 – Internet penis is in no way relational to actual penis size.

  1. I wonder if endeavours such as this will feature in next Mondays Panorama investigation?

  2. Jas-n, I’m still not included on this list, what’s with that ? I did at least 10 w/u …. :S

    • I think you must be folding as “PS3” for your user name. Make sure it’s your user name.

  3. Finally broken into some leaderboards after some heavy folding, pretty chuffed about that. :)

  4. Ok got my GPU folding now. Gonna crunch some serious numbers.

  5. I’ve finally thrown caution to the wind. My PS3 is now folding after 2 x YLOD. If it’s going to go down, it’s going down fighting!

  6. I would like it if it gave a counter to how many peoples’ lives I’ve saved. Just because then I can watch it get to nearly a full person then turn it off. DENIED.

  7. So this is important stuff then? I went to do it the other day and it said I had to install a file, but I read briefly about it and if u have to leave the ps3 when your not using it I just know my GF is not gonna be happy with the electricity bill…. :-(

  8. For anyone that cares, here is the link to the TSA Folding Home page


  9. I just saw this. “I blame RedStarGlow for his week of reduced folding.”

    Did I let up enough for you to win a month? I hope so because that was your only chance! :-)

    I miss the graphs BTW

    • There are 4 pages, graphs are on page 4. I just need to update them.
      And I was first for a little bit, but big WU’s meant I couldn’t get ahead, so was soon retaken

      • Good work on the update as always! Thanks

      • Cheers, may need to add in some colour to break some of the tables up.
        Also regarding pages, seeing as the forum stats have merged in here paging is better than a long scrolling page, so everything here somewhere :). Hence no Stanford link.
