We have a DevFolding team that participates in the Stanford Folding@Home projects. Basically it lets your PC's spare cycles be used to assist them in research for cures for cancer and a plethora (get out your dictionaries!) of other diseases. That's the good thing. The cool thing is it let's us run the hell out of our high performance PCs! We compete against each other and other sites to see who can fold
the most Work Units (WU's). Believe it or not, it's hella fun so come join us!
Joining is easy. Simply go to the Folding@Home home page
the version best suited for your system. We recommend using the top one on the list if you're using any version of Windows.
Once it's installed simply enter your user name (any you want, but preferably the one you use here in the forums), and then enter 12912
as your team number. You can use the same User Name and Team Number on as many boxes as you want, there's no limit. The more boxes, the more WU's you complete!
It will automatically download a work unit and begin folding. The goal is to fold as many as possible. A WU will take anywhere from 6hrs to 30hrs to complete depending on the WU size and your system. Then you can sit back and check out the stats to see where you and your bad ass box fall on the list of Junkies folding! (While, of course, at the same time helping out a VERY worthwhile cause.)
Here's some helpful links:
(Note: The stats update every several hours, so once you complete a WU chill for a bit then check em out.)
