Gone in 2 months this time instead of 4. I guess that's an improvement.

Oh, the ends do indeed justify the means in my eyes. So a few people get a big electricity bill, or some bloke's machine overheats because he lives in a sauna...big deal? It's about sacrifice. If I had the cash, I'd run out and build a folding farm that would totally blow Atlas or any other farm out of the water right now.

Another thing people have to realize is that FaH doesn't get a bad name just for some gooks fooling around that like to tick off full-on folders. FaH truly is for a good cause, even with people like this "messing it up." I'm not saying it's generally WRONG what they're doing, but its the fact that this annoys lots of people.

Folding isn't for points. It's not about building better rigs to get more points. It's not about cheating to get points. It's about using your dang machine for a cause.

This is the part you're missing that makes what these guys are doing wrong.

I agree that it all goes to the same place, but it's not voluntary, it's stealing their energy/CPU time to do so. I don't care about the points and their climb in the standings either, but what they're doing is wrong any way you slice it.

You are correct, they don't get a bad name because some folks are doing these kinds of things, they get a bad name because they don't react to it with any kind of urgency.

Choose to believe what you will, but there are people out there (myself included) who will move to a different DC if the panda group doesn't demonstrate that they consider distribution of the client via pirated software worthy of their attention in a timely manner.

Just in case you guys didn't know, Team FTL/F-Tl-L is gone for good. Seems that Stanford banned the team number.
