Folding@Home - Helping science... The Internet way!

#1

Hey guys,
Picked up this project from Custom PC magazine… seems a really good idea. The site can explain it alot better than me:

What does Folding@Home do? Folding@Home is a distributed computing project which studies protein folding, misfolding, aggregation, and related diseases. We use novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. This has allowed us to simulate folding for the first time, and to now direct our approach to examine folding related disease.

All that ^^ means that you download the core program, leave it running with your CPU crunching numbers and you contribute to science! We can even make a CDFreaks team to show how many points people have contributed.

Start here: http://folding.stanford.edu/

although it far far to late for me to be ready stuff like that, the link doesn`t seem to work.

Er… dno why: http://folding.stanford.edu/

EDIT
Ahh taged it wrong woppps my bad! Now that one and the one in main post works.

thanks ill read tomorrow when iam awake ]-0

Ok guys, Iv made a CDFs team:

New team CDFreaks with number 45686 has been founded by VirusHack

When configuring your set up, type that in and help CDFs!

i folded for a while (http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=userpage&username=drpino) but stopped a few months ago to save some electricity during the summer months when i knew i’d be cranking the AC…

I did this for a while, but running the CPU at 100% began to get noisy - I mean, REALLY noisy, and you could actually hear it during the night, the sounds of the fans running at full speed, so I just stopped. Maybe slightly selfish considering the cause, but nonetheless, it was getting to be VERY annoying.

you can use this program to monitor your progress
