    Default Folding @ Home

    http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Main

    Just wondering who else around here (besides Mboy [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] ) is adding to the cause? I've never bothered to really look into it but I think it's about time I did. lol

    Maybe we could start a Soonet Folding @ Home Team? I'm not sure how to post official scores and what not yet. But anyone with a monster video card, a PS3, or any old PC not doing much of anything else can get in on this.

    Any thoughts from anyone who might actually give a $hit about helping to fight disease?

    OK I made US a team # 141140

    http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/...teamnum=141140

    Any client program can contribute to the statistics for this team by putting the number 141140 in the team field in the client

    I will put one of my clients to this team. I'm staying in my original team since I'm one of it's top folders.

    Here is my current score and world standing. http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/...sername=mboy67

    Well I was using my PS3 with the EVGA team, but I'll start using my HTPC with this one to do more...I have a very direct interest in this.

    It looks like something similar to the "Seti @ Home" thing basicly it ran from your screen saver to co-operate with other computers in looking for ET life. (I think anyways [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif[/img] )

    This one is about protein folding, because if we can figure it out, it may help us to find cures for many diseases.

    I had it running last night for a while, but after sticking my hand around the back of the case I noticed that only one card was working since there was no heat pouring from the bottom one. I tried getting the second one to work, but now I somehow lost all the progress I had on my first WU! [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]

    This is what I did. http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-ATI2#ntoc17

    Ok, I figured it out. I needed a second display to have both cards working.
