chalk another one up for Sony & Stanford... PS3 & F@H youtube video...


Life With PlayStation - Official Release Video




F@H News entry - Sep 18, 2008


In partnership with Sony, we've rolled out a new update to the Folding@home client for the PS3, now built into their "Life With Playstation" (LWP) application. They've done a great job of building a beautiful piece of software. Folding@home is running underneath in the background. Noam Rimon, the lead developer on the Sony side put it well in an earlier blog post as well as a more recent post on the PS3 blog


We’re going to offer this as a free service that will be easily accessible directly from the XMB. Life with PlayStation will feed live content to your PS3 with updates on news and weather on a visually stunning and interactive global map. Imagine being able to wake up to your PS3 to see if you need to pack an umbrella for the day. Or just relax as you listen to your favorite tunes while reading up on top news from around the world.



We've also updated the science code to do the same functionality of what the GPU2 code can do today. However, people will notice that the ns/day will go significantly down. We want to stress that the points per day remains the same. This means that one gets more points/ns since the calculation is more complex, so don't worry too much if your ns/day is lower. LWP takes up a little extra compute time from the science, but not much. Most of the decrease in ns/day is due to the fact that it's doing a much more complex calculation (which is good for the science side of this).

So far, the response will be strong and I expect that this could in time double the FLOP count from PS3 donors in Folding@home, which itself will be pretty impressive. More importantly, with the advanced science now rolled out on both the PS3 and GPU2 platforms, we're well-poised to tackle some much more complex and interesting calculations.

Well there definitely was a product called that in the early 1960's because I used it! It was in a toothpaste sized tube and was a very sticky clear gel. There were also bottles of Brilliantine liquid as well....

I notice Rosetta is no longer on the BOINC stats site, as a listed project. Rosetta teams are there still, but according to it, we've had no points earned for the last few days.

Any info on this?

according to the stats not exported thread in number crunching, the daemon that controls stats reports to the outside world froze. the team reset it and other than a gap for the past 3 days things should be back to normal.

Since things are "back to normal":

He had the flat
But she felt his chin
And that
Was that
