You can run the program like you are donatig your pc for an hours. I have to
read more about it but I think people who have a PS3 will be more important
for this.

In this talbe: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=osstats
there is the number of TFLOPS that a normal PC with windows with the program
can do (303) and the PS3 (1000 - 2200).
Seems like PS3 can do the job of 7 pcs xD

> Hi, Javier:

> And if you need help setting up the program, just ask.

> As of March 2, 2010, there are 33 active members of team Mutaku using FAH.
