A whole lotta folding going on

Folding@Home has a lot to thank Sony for. Thanks in part to the PS3 being able to participate, F@H has reached 1 PetaFLOP of computational power. The entire BOINC project has about half that, at 559.444 TeraFLOPS. Wired has a bit more on just how much power that represents.
Congratulations to Folders everywhere; especially the ones Folding for PC Perspective.
"Sony and Stanford University are thrilled to announce that the Folding@home project has reached the petaflop
milestone. Yeah, we had no idea what that meant, either, but what it boils down to is massive computational ability,
and it's the first time it's been achieved on a distributed computing network. Those of you with a low tolerance for
science might want to stop reading now."
