On February 13th, 2021, the SQL Family Team on Folding@Home passed the Twenty-One Billion “Grand Score” count for work unit credits. This is amazing, since our team has only been around since March 8, 2020, and we have a fairly small number (24) of active members. We previously passed the Seventeen Billion mark on October 29th, 2021. Now we have passed Twenty-One Billion Credits for Folding@Home!
We currently have 179 members on the team, and anyone is welcome to join. Our Team Number is 236,388. The SQL Family Team is currently in 93rd place out of 225,512 teams.
After a lot of work by many people, we finally made it to the Top 100! If you have a desktop machine with an NVIDIA RTX 2000 or 3000 series GPU that you can use for this, that would be a huge help! But honestly, any CPU or GPU resources that you can dedicate to this are greatly appreciated.
I have learned quite a bit about Folding@Home over the past twenty-two months. Believe it or not, I have also learned a few new things about PC hardware. I have also written a number of blog posts about some of my experiences. Hopefully, you will find these interesting and helpful.

You can get very detailed production information for our team from Extremeoverclocking.com. If you are part of a team, you can get detailed information on your own production history. Personally, I find this very helpful as a monitoring tool and for additional motivation!
