Points Milestone - Greg - 5k

Greg has just passed the 5,000 points milestone! He now has returned 59 work units for a total of 5,004 points. Keep folding mate!

Work Units Milestone - Ravenge5 - 500

Our favourite Canadian, Ravenge5 has been pumping out the work units with his Playstation 3 and has just made a work units milestone by returning his 500th work unit today!

Sitting 2nd on the team leaderboard, he has accounted for a good 1/6th of the team's total score so far. He's certainly a vital contributor, and the effort is very much appreciated mate. Look out for a 100k points milestone from this guy in about a week or so.

New Team Member - ahmsnake

A folder going by the name of ahmsnake has joined the team! They've already completed 3 work units and sit on 795 points.

Folding@Home over 2 Petaflops again and this time not stopping there

With the recent release of a GPU2 beta client for NVIDIA graphics cards, the OS Stats has soared ~250 Teraflops to a total project power of ~ 2.2 Petaflops!

The combined GPU stats (a GPU2 client already existed for ATI cards) now sit at around 450 Teraflops... Not bad for only ~4,000 active GPU folders. The good thing to see is that the project now has over 310,000 active folders, edging closer to 320,000.

Hopefully with more and more clients of different hardware compatibility, the project can accumulate more participants, push progress, and result in new research papers being released.

Congrats to Vijay's Folding@Home development team for the release of this latest client and also to those who are currently folding with a graphics card.

Points Milestone - Aussie Rules Footy - 500k

Aussie Rules Footy has just cracked the 500,000 points milestone!!!

Building strongly since November 2006, the team now sits inside the top 2,000 teams for all-time. Pretty impressive when you consider there is now over 125,000 teams! Exact position - 1,916th of 125,628 teams, with 2,411 work units returned, total of 501,636 points rewarded.

The 1,000,000 point milestone should be less than 12 months away now, with much more points being churned out from some more 'active' folders in the team. Team PPD (Points Per Day) figures now average atleast 2,000 PPD with regular figures of 3,000 PPD.

Hopefully recruitment wise we can get a couple of SMP client-running members, and possibly some GPU folders for some big PPD figures. More and more active folders would be the biggest help though, and hopefully some come on board or start back up for us. I wouldn't mind putting together some sort of 2nd Team Birthday recruitment drive in November. We'll see how we go.
