Folding@Home update: 3 Work Units completed, 2 computers, 138 points, overall team rank #15,162


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: computing; cure; disease; distributed; fah; fh; folding; foldingathome; foldinghome; prions; proteins; software; stanford; stanforduniversity; tech
For those not familiar with F@H -> some diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer and even "mad cow" disease are believed to be linked to protein (mis)folding.

A scientist team at Stanford University studies this phenomenon to try and find a cure to these diseases. Due to the enourmous amount of computing power needed, they designed a software (folding@home) which enables people to donate unused power from their computer to the project.

So we do have a team now? Cool. What do I do to get on it? I've already got the software installed.

If you see the Team Number 47733 under your donator username, you're part of the FreeRepublic Team.

If not, right click anywhere on the Folding@Home's page and select "Configure" and enter 47733 in the Team Number box.

Got to bump us up. 15,000 is much too low for the might of FR!

Gotcha. Oh, is there any way to add work already done to the team score? Is it added automatically, or is the score lost to the individual before a team was configured?

no, when you change teams, old points stay with the previous teams

HOLY COW! I've just been given the Work Unit from Hell!!! It takes three days per page, and five hundred pages. It's due to be completed in SEPTEMBER, 2010.

Anybody know what's up here? Do you lose everything if you quit before it finishes the unit? Because, like, I will be astonished if this machine is still running in five years, let alone without a reboot.

We need a plan to grow the team. Anyone want to pitch an idea? Do we have a ping list, at least?

Seems the new thread got pulled. Well, I am doing what I can, but it seems that we need a lot more computers to muve us up any further. New team number 36120, gotcha. Can I transfer my current credits over to the new team?

You need to address a post to everyone on this thread. I am BoT2, of course.

No, apparently not. I started out in the wrong group and lost a couple of work units in the switchover. :(

Yeah, I had over a year in with the Folding Frogs team when I found you guys here. Like Jayne Cobb I'm just glad to be doing good works.
Keep it up guys,

Holy cow! Perhaps the rest of us should join you! The whole FR group doesn't have that many...

Can you carry over SETI@Home work units? It didn't seem so, and I've got about 7700 completed. It seemed a bit of a disappointment.

Fascinating.

Does your Mom know you ripped off her calculator?

Never mind, she's here.. I'll ask.

Glad I found this thread.

I started the FR F@H group over a year ago. All of the (old) computers listed are friends of mine that let me maintain their systems.

Uriah has one screaming machine. He has already broken top 10 in only a couple of weeks.
