Sad news as the F@H app on the PS3 will be taken down with the next firmware update. On a selfish note, I was looking forward to finally making the pie chart on the-w stats page.

Hm. You know, I almost forgot I was still doing this.

Sheesh - you're about to overtake me.

Time to get my systems folding again!

Luckily, it's getting colder and I need the space heaters.

If you don't, you can not take your PS3 online. Either way, you can't use F@H anymore because it can not find a new unit to fold.

Sony really seems to be doing everything they can to ensure that I never again purchase a PS console.

F@H is still working on my PS3, as of this morning.

I'd like to know why Sony's pulling the plug on the app.
