Bigbruin.com has fired up a Folding@Home team! Please sign up if interested, and ask any questions in this thread!!

We are team #: 13848

Team stats are available at either: Hardfolding.com | Stanford.edu | Kakaostats.com

What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease? Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.

Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.

Folding@Home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems thousands to millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.

I'll set up my systems when I get home.


You might want to put this in its own thread.

I've got 3 box's running. A 2500+ Barton (@2105 MHz), 1.4 T-bird (@1466MHz) and a 900MHz T-bird (stock).

The 1.4 T-bird is the testbed for reviews, other than that...all 3 will run at least 12 hours a day during the week and all weekend starting 5pm Fridays. (Schedule is subject to change, pending local circumstances)




I ment Forum!

Stanford stats show me but, the Extreme Overclockers site only shows my completed units...does not show me as a new member.

Maybe they will update their system now that the weekend is over.

Fold on!

However, I'll be taking down the 1.4GHz t-bird this weekend to test the Kamakaze HSF. I wanted to redo the system anyway...it seems to be EXTREAMLY slow folding (up to 50 min per frame) and I think I'll try SuSE for a bit.

SuSE... whoa, have fun! Right now I have my XP2800+ and a PIII 600 folding!! What a waste of space that PIII is!! Once I figure out why my other system is so loud I will have an XP2200+ folding, too... Just replaced the psu and hsf, so that wasn't the noise... Either the vga fan or the northbridge fan... Hmmm...
