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?

From the name? I suspect it's a new data centre about to be commissioned. The admins are prolly testing the power load and or air conditioners (well, the fresh air cooling)
They may as well put the power to good use, but they won't be around for long.
Eventually they will have to switch to serving customers.

Ireland is currently building lots of server farms. Google and others joining in too.
Its nice a cold here and the weather is predictable.
This means you can run a data centre without the need for expensive air conditioning, just use the cold air from outside.

Yea, that makes the most sense. If fac folds for over a month though I'll get a little suspicious.

Just a update, fresh_air_cooling and the only team member fac is going to pass me up next update. I am kind of ticked off that a super computer can pass me up f@h in less than a month since I have been folding for years! I'm happy that they are using f@h for a good cause till they get things on-line. I just feel really small compared to fac.

Here we go again, this time the team is HPCS. Will pass up Legit Reviews in 1.2 months. http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... =&t=213904

Edit: Make that 1.1 Months :shock:

Edit: Darkstar_dd Just got passed up in two weeks! from HPCS. http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... =&t=213904

Edit on 12/18/11: What do think HPCS stands for. I was thinking it might stand for Hewlett-Packard Cloud Systems. What do you think?
