Folding@Zelaron (Cure Cancer with your computer!)
Reply
Posted 2008-08-18, 06:55 PM
If you haven't heard of it before, Folding@home is basically a Stanford-developed distributed computing project which performs computationally intense simulations of protein folding and other molecular dynamics.

Folding@home is the most powerful distributed computing cluster in the world, and it is used to give scientists a better understanding of why proteins sometimes do not fold correctly, which occasionally leads to various consequences and diseases such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

All you need to do to run Folding@home on your computer (either on your CPU or your GPU) or on your PS3 is to download the client from http://folding.stanford.edu.

Note that your computer (or PS3) runs Folding@home on low priority by default. Thus, Folding@home will only run on full speed while you are not using your computer. When you are using your computer, Folding@home's calculation speed (or more specifically, its amount of calculations per second) will slow down to not bog down your other applications and games. In other words, running Folding@home will not (notably) affect your computer's performance.

What are you waiting for? Join the Zelaron folding team now and start folding!


Zelaron Team ID (Input this into your Folding@home client): 143204

In case you didn't feel like reading my previous post, or even if you did, this is a pretty good video introduction to the Folding@home project:

In theory, if we get a good team ranking, it should also work as advertisement for Zelaron.

Actually, somewhat "old" computers run Folding@home just fine. Here's some information from the official FAQ on the Folding@home website:

Folding@home FAQ said:
What are the minimum system requirements?

All computers can contribute to Folding@home. However, if the computer is too slow (e.g. wasn't bought in the last 3-4 years or so), the computer might not be fast enough to make the deadlines of typical work units. A Pentium 3 450 MHz or newer equivalent computer (with SSE) is able to complete work units before they expire.

I've been trying to connect. I seem to be having some issues though. By the way, it's not just talk. We seriously have a butt-load of powerful crap at my house. Not including my crappy laptop, which is the one I was trying to connect with first.

Folding@home is single-handedly more powerful than the entire BOINC network.

I downloaded it but seemed to have some sort of problem communicating with their network to recieve work. I gave up due to lack of care.

I'm trying to run it as I leave my computer on 24/7, but it keeps saying "can't connect and no work to be done". Did I miss something?

Although, I just noticed that my wireless internet client is suddenly taking 300mb of RAM in the background. Dunno if that's related.
