Nice Matt, we can use the help :)
So I've been out of the Folding game for a while, what's a fair PPD anymore for my rig? The client says 2.71Mil PPD, which I'll be honest, based on my prior experience of folding for years to get to almost 6M, seems odd?

Stumbled across this video, which seemed cool. A lot of people don't understand just how Stanford uses all those Petaflops. I feel that this video shows just how they are utilizing our idle cycles for curing diseases, COVID in this specific example.
