Sorry - what I mean is that on the 19th, I plan to go back to folding for NCIX.

So there I was just minding my own biz when I stumbled onto this interesting thread over at overclocking.com's forums.

pete_scout - Overclockers Forums

Seems his original team is also doing a tribute to pete scout but folding under his real nick which he used there since March 20th 2005. I guess pete just helped out the fledgling HWC forums team for awhile before he stopped altogether. I never met him but wow he seemed like a terrific person to help out a young team like that. Someone over at ocf mentioned that pete scout was recorded talking to ChasR another ocf members about folding in a podcast (I'd love to hear that!). This kind of made my day how pete's folding endeavors are still recognised by more than just us and I never knew he was such an early powerhouse folder on a top 3 team. I'm really very glad we decided to rename his nick for our tribute as all his stats have remained as he left us and his last day sadly.

Anyways if anyone has a registered account over at ocf I'd highly recommend someone from here dropping in on that thread and saying a word or two. I just signed up and my registration validation e-mail from them is taking forever to come in.

*Edit: I found the OCF podcast and it's an outstanding listen, I recommend this to every new or old folder here. Pete sounds incredibly knowledgable and explains the principles of folding very clearly and concisely. This podcast goes back awhile so theres not much talk about gpu folding so listening to them talk about ppd they got on just cpu's is alot less than what we get now.

There are 2 other threads here too, the links are shown in my initial post.

Peter was not even there at the start of the Folding team here; but since it was a canadian site, he jumped right in and felt at home. He managed to run dual users (pscout here, pete_scout at OCF) and still managed to remain in the top 20.

Tx for the podcast, I will listen to it at lunchtime.

I'm in folks. I just think this is an awesome tribute to this gentleman. As some may know I recently had back surgery but recovery did not go well. My incision become infected and I was literally next to death for a few days, and it was the HWC forum that kept my mind busy and off the pain. If not for the distraction of the forum it would have been an even more miserable experience. It will be my honour and pleasure to contribute to this effort.

HWC is fast becoming a small family for me and I feel as though I knew pscout even though we never met because you all have managed to keep his memory alive. I will be contributing my PS3 and my CPU client the sweet AMD 9950 that I bought off Killswitch (thanks buddy great CPU btw) so I should be good for about 1500 PPD. The recent update to the PS3 client has increased my PPD from 900 average to just over 1000. Both are on pretty much 24/7.
