Default WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT!! For the F@H Contest!!


Before we get to the winners, ASUS and the Hardware Canucks staff would like to thank you for all for participating in this contest. While Folding should need no compensation, we feel that our goal of increasing awareness of the F@H project has been met and then some. The response from the community as a whole has been phenomenal and we hope that you will all continue to contribute to this cause long into the future; even if it is not for our home team here at HWC.

Not only was the Hardware Canucks team vaulted into the 94th spot overall (so far), we have a very good chance of breaking the Top 50 before the end of the year. Amazing stuff!

So without further ado, here are the winners:


ASUS GTX 260 216 Matrix Edition : Soultribunal

ASUS GTX 285 Ultimate : l-lunter

HWC Mouse Pad: dhoshaw

HWC T-Shirt: Pelt


Congratulations to the winners!!

Winners will be contacted via PM within the next few days in order to finalize their details with the staff.


We would once again like to thank ASUS for making this all happen. Without their generous contribution, this would not have been possible.

Stay tuned for more F@H contests in the near future.

In the meantime, we would like to draw your attention to HWC' Tribute to Pete_Scout. It is a story which brings some real meaning to Folding @ Home.

The response has been amazing, and I really appreciate how the PPD stayed high even after folks had enough points to qualify for the contest.

He's one of our new folders, and has been putting out some decent consistant PPD since he joined.
