Where did this team/person come from!
 
I posted this on Legit Reviews and I thought I would pass this on to HardwareCanucks because you have a more active forum. "The team name is fresh_air_cooling and the only team member is called fac. Legit Reviews will be passed up in 8.5 months. How is this possible?". I don't get it!? Here is the link to the team/folder. fresh_air_cooling - Team Summary - EXTREME Overclocking Folding @ Home Stats What do you think of this team/folder? Besides kicking butt!

No different than awachs awachs - Team Summary - EXTREME Overclocking Folding @ Home Stats

They literally run supercomputers to fold on.

I was going to say that it's probably someone burning in a new server or 6. You don't usually see someone going from 0 to 10 million points in a week, the addiction normally starts on a smaller scale. :biggrin:

Or its one of those teams thats managed to infect some PC's via malware. There were a couple of those last year...

Looks like a server farm / supercomputer, that's for sure.

Sagath, that's what I was thinking. Can't say for sure though. Just looks like its very strange to come out of nowhere and put up those kind of points. What business would have a super computer running F@H? Just seems like it would be a rouge I T guy doing something like this if this was the case. Makes you wonder where in the world would someone want to do this and get away with it. I wish I could send a e-mail to that person and ask how it's done.

Edit: Don't you think some pics would be in order to prove or disprove this. If this is legit, then I will be the first person to say congrats!
