To be considered a country, you need to have a beer. Sure, it helps to have an airport or nuclear weapons, but at the very least...you need to have a beer.

I leave my PS3 on overnight all the time, and I never have any problems. It doesn't make loud noises, or get extremely hot.

which do you guys think eats up more power-- a folding PS3 left on overnight or a laptop sitting idle but on with a black screensaver on overnight?

I usually leave my laptop on, but if I could be folding for the same price, I'd go with that.

I'm in and folding away. Kind of a cool app to run while not playing games.

In the winter people in Japan could all huddle around the PS3 running this instead of the kotatsu.

I've joined. I was with another team and contributed one Work Unit already but I'm with CAG now.

I left it on last night and no problems.
I've left it on while I'm at work today (though I won't do this on a regular basis), it should be fine.

Sometimes I've accidently left it on while away from home anyway.

when it's folding? When mine is folding the fans go nuts, not surprising since it's doing intensive number crunching.

What's even more #!#%! nuts is that 13386 PS3s have more than doubled the TFLOP for the entire project

found a problem--

I finished a work unit while my connection was off, so I had to restart the program. Booted it back up, uploaded the unit. It shows under the CAG team that uploaded one, but I didn't get any points for it.

I'd join, but I'm not much of a "team player."
