Team Hack-A-Day completes 25,000,000 points

25million points

It has been a while since I’ve mentioned our unofficial Folding@home team; that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped crushing the competition. We recently completed 25 million points and are ranked 32nd in the world. Pretty good for a team that only really got rolling last October. That much processing power would rank us as #91 in the Top 500 Supercomputers list. To join the team or just to celebrate, head over to the unofficial forums or stop by #hackaday on EFnet.

[thanks Tired2]

    This isn’t a hack! Come on!
    heh… :P

    Way to go team Hack-A-Day.
    I would join, but all my spare processing power is currently being raped and pillaged by Freenet. Damn java.

    i wonder how long it will be until distributed project such as this get listed as super computers, which are after all just a bunch of nodes, sometimes on different sides of the country. given how big this team is, and that there are 31 higher than that in the rankings, i suspect that f@h would smoke a lare number of the big instalations.

    If memory recalls correctly, someone on the forum mentioned something about us being ranked 91 on the top 500 supercomputer lists. I could be mistaken though.
