But then people take a slice of that rich landscape, bind their entire identity to it, and become absolute cockwombles

@thegibson the script I use to generate this camps on the F@H API (gently), and then produces a text file with team stats and member ranking.

It now checks that in to GitHub, so a history will be kept as git commits. If people want to look at recent team stats they can hit github.com/tinycalcifer/htfs/b instead of hammering the Folding@Home stats page.

fired up Folding@Home to use spare cycles on my gaming/modelling rig whenever I'm not using it

Joined the hackers.town team since it was @thegibson tooting that prompted me to do it

Right now, it's helping COVID research (as well as other disease research); but it's a good thing all the time. Shoulda done it sooner, but as the saying goes: the second best time to start is now
