FR Folding@Home Project Update - We're are in the TOP250 teams and still climbing!!
soccer_maniac | 2-12-2006 | soccer_maniac

Posted on 02/12/2006 1:46:32 PM PST by soccer_maniac

Welcome to the new FreeRepublic folding@home thread. The previous thread has gotten too large, so we move on to yet another.

While this folding@home team is not officially sanctioned by Free Republic, it's 250+ members comprised primarily of Free Republic members in good standing have banded together to donate their excess CPU cycles to a worthy cause. Via distributed computing, millions of computers around the world, contribute directly to scientific research, in the quest for a greater understanding of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Cancer, and Mad Cow (BSE).

Currently, the team is in 241st place, having moved up from 1200th place, a week earlier, and is now in the top 100 teams, for daily contributions.

This is an entirely voluntary program, and if you want to learn more, please see the links posted below (or read one of the previous 8 folding threads)

Folding@Home FAQ for new users:

What is Folding@Home? A Stanford University project to find out how proteins fold.

Why it's important: Proteins folding wrong causes all kinds of diseases, like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and forms of cancer. Folding@Home uses novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. Through Folding@home, scientists now have the horsepower to study the mechanics of protein folding. With its ability to share the workload among hundred of thousands of computers economically, Folding@home can help scientists understand how proteins snap, or don’t, into their predestined shapes — and may help to explain the origins of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and apparently unrelated diseases. We're fueling research that could end all that.

How does it work?: You download a safe, tested program (see link below) that is certified by Stanford University. It gets work from Stanford, runs calculations using your spare computer power, and sends the results back to the University.

Is it safe? Yes! Folding@Home rarely effects computer performance in any way and won't compromise your privacy in any way. It only uses the computing power you aren't using so it doesn't slow down other programs.

How do I get started folding for Team FreeRepublic?: 1.)Download the folding program from Stanford University's folding download page (see link below). Type in your desired username. 2) Type in 36120 for the team number. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - if you get the number wrong, you won't be folding for team FreeRepublic! 3) The third question asks, "Launch automatically at machine startup, installing this as a service?" - We recommend you answer YES. Otherwise you will have to manually start the program after every reboot.

How can my computer help? Even if he were given exclusive access to all of the world’s supercomputers, Standford still wouldn’t have as much processing power as they get from the supercluster of people’s desktop systems Folding@home relies on. Modern supercomputers are essentially a cluster of hundreds of processors linked by fast networking. But Stanford needed the power of hundreds of thousands of processors, not just hundreds.

There's no reason to not get involved! It's free, easy, and you can know you're helping every minute without lifting a finger.

Being an original BOINC beta tester from version 0.8 (astropulse - linux) I have to say that's pretty good.

I'm 50% done with my first WU, and now I don't want to use my computer even though I also want to get some gaming in!

I really think this needs to be added to either the summary post, or the OP itself. It is pretty convincing.

Folding?

There is a general purpose BOINC chat on irc.freenode.net channel #boinc (all projects discussed)

Connect with any IRC or chat client, from most any platform. Regular client updates, and alpha/beta client information. setup/install and bug problems solved here too.

It's clear you've got the folding bug bad. Real bad.

As others have noted, you should be able to game OK, 'cause the "folding" program is secondary to other activities. In a rare case if you find that isn't true, and your game suffers, you can pause the "folding" by right clicking the red "flower".

I think Smith288 did a heck of a job with his sig. I bet he has the background around his computer somewhere. A little red daisy, and we're good to go !!!

We're are moving to become one of the elite teams. We're currently #33 overall in terms of number of active members. 20 new members would push us up to #27

Wow...has Frog Mom seen this?

By the way, I defy anyone to watch the whole video and not get misty at the last frame. It's a little hard to type right now...

Oh, now-- don't you know that Klutz is a "co-opter" of computer labs?? I found this out over at the DUmper. Yes, it's true! He's "really killed the friendly spirit of it" by co-opting "work and lab computers." LOL!! You can read it all here, at the DUmp. Post #4 will set you straight about how low we are, and how great DU folders are.

Thanks for the link.

They're funny over there, LOL.

Check out this quote "But you know what's really funny about all of this? We're winning on the numbers of active members. We're growing, they've stagnated and are losing numbers. Which means, in the end, even though they've done their best to pile it on, we will outnumber them and they know it. . . . Our numbers will continue to grow without co-opting computers. Wait until the day that the top freepers lose access to the co-opted computers (and maybe their jobs) or otherwise figure out the hypocrisy of dedicating medical research to Ronnie and stop crunching. I know I ran SETI for over 7 years. I'll run F@H for as long as it exists and I know from posts that there are plenty of other DU'ers who remain committed to running DC programs."

Isn't the second one down, the 4.0 version, what you want for '98?

Corporate Mike needs a math education, and Mabus truly must be from another planet. Or perhaps an alternate reality.

"Klutz is a "co-opter" of computer labs?? I found this out over at the DUmper. Yes, it's true!" Oh the shame and horror - I don't know if I can stand being on a team such as this I'd love to co-opt a few labs myself!

Yeah, I wanna co-opt a computer lab too. Sounds like fun, and it would sure boost my folding score. Maybe I could get past 137th place.

LOL! Now I remember! Priceless! DUh! (It doesn't seem very morally superior for DUmpers to co-opt FR graphics, does it? )

I have been stuck in the 120s since I joined. I co-opted my son's gaming computer tonight...I should start moving up the rankings in about two days. That thing will outrun both of the slow desktops I have folding now.

He joined our team back in December, but he keeps shutting off the GUI while doing other things and forgets to turn it back on. He is one of our team's "inactive" members.

I unistalled the GUI version, installed the console version as a service (with my user name) and shared the directory to my home network so I can monitor it from my main desktop.

Unfortunately he's pretty computer-savvy so I think he'd notice! Besides, he'd be wondering why it's even on. He's mostly using his Mac laptop lately--my next target!

Game away !!! F@H will back off so it won't interfere

Not necessarily, I just discovered.

I don't do a lot of game playing, but I just tried to play Total Annihilation. The game kept minimizing after only a couple of full-screen sessions. I finally narrowed it down to F@H (the GUI version). Even pausing work didn't do it. I actually had to quit the utility before the game would operate correctly.

Might be bacause it's an older game. Might be because I'm not using the console version of F@H on this machine. Who knows. Just thought I'd bring it up, though, just in case someone else experiences it.

Done playing now-- F@H is back up and running...

Try the console. I think that OpenGL display really kills some video cards.

FahMon is very good for monitoring one or more machines over a local network. It gives you % done, estimated finish time, project name & number, points available, and other useful stuff.
