ummm, lets say it this way...
for windows users, GOOGLE has implemented the stanford FAH3 client in
their toolbar... there are /MANY/ google users on the google "team" but
that is/was a controversy that may be at an end due to some folk not

other than the google thing, i understand that there are several tens of
thousands of folk who heard about and joined up on their own...
[H]ardOCP, OverClockers Australia, and quite a few other groups are all
participating... me? i'm running alone on the folding stuff... at least
