How a couple of egos and extrinsic motivations turned [email protected] into a bloody cold war competition, where work units were as valuable as kill counts.
Ha. Well, at least they're doing some good in the world!
what is [email protected] about?
google, learn to use it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I wonder how many people would fold is they gave out trophies for certain number of work units....
Looking at the lights (Places where [email protected] users are supposed to be). I noticed a few of them where in places I don't think I'd ever expect them to have any sort of technology, much less a PS3, EVEN moreso [email protected] Such as: - An isolated island - The middle of Atlantic (No Island here, WTF) - Some where in the nether mountain regions of Nepal (possibly Shangri-la) Damn, PS3 you scary... -End statement
lls good post. Funny story. I'm tempted to start a Folding war with some of my buddies now :)
it's all fun and games until your PS3 gets YLOD from folding 12 hours a day :(
it's a PS3 not an Xbox 360
Interesting thoughts on competitive nature. I dig it.
I really enjoyed this story. Great writing!
This is the kind of war the world needs.
The Fold War
I actually blame the 150+ work units my first PS3 contributed into Folding as the reason it died. Sadly, this is why I hardly do any Folding now.
You can always give some money to charity if you feel like helping without the folding.
Ah, but it's "good" to have options... XD
Really well written,.. bravo!
We need more articles like this. Good work. :)
i have done 340 work unit on folding @ home so if anyone want to join me i'll give you the code to join in.
I remember putting my old 60GB turned on 24 hours at least a day per weak on folding home. i might do that again now with my slim
I think sony should seriously consider implementing trophies into folding home.
They should add trophies for it, would bring alot more people into it. I did both folding on pc and ps3. Only just started doing it again strangely enough this week.
ive done a mere 19 units still, not too bad i guess
