FR Folding@Home Project Update -- We're in the Top 110 of all teams with 6 Million points
Stanford University's Folding@Home Stats page ^ | 05-17-2006 | soccer_maniac

Posted on 05/17/2006 6:57:16 AM PDT by soccer_maniac

Time for a new FreeRepublic folding@home thread.

Our FreeRepublic team of 325+ 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 108th place (with 991 active CPUs - 34,150 completed Work Units and more than 6,000,000 points).

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 16 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 (Folding@home Client Download). 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.

How do I get started folding for Team FreeRepublic?: 1.) Download the folding program from Stanford

I've gone from 170 to 128 in the past few weeks running 2 procs. I really need to get that 3rd one running so I can catch up to Klutz! :-)

How far we have come! Thanks a bunch to soccer_maniac and to all of the FReepers (and the DUmmies) that have got us here.

I saw that yesterday. 6 Million, woot.

In the upside news, I'm finally getting the last third of my group of machines back into the fray in the next few days. They've been on Hiatus due to various moves.

I signed up some months ago and have the little doohicky on my screen but my name doesn't show up. Any idea of what I screwed up?

You're probably contributing to team default. Right click the icon and select "Configure," put in 36120 for the team number.

When you right click the 'little doohicky', you'll get a menu where you can left click 'configure'. Then, you can enter your FR screen-name as user and the FR team # 36120.

Thanks for folding with us.

I hope this isn't a silly question but...I just installed the software on both my home machines. If I use the same user name (my FR screen name) and team # on both PCs, will the project aggregate the completed work units from both computers and give a single ranking to that user name? Does the same user name on two computers cause any problems with the software?

Welcome to the team!

Yes, you can have as many computers folding under the same username as you want. Fortunately for us, Klutz has 369 of them folding for the same username/team. Many others have more than 1 computer folding.

See you on the stats pages.

A warm WELCOME and THANK YOU, to all the new members ! Once you get settled into the folding life, remember to check out Egon's monitoring tool. You'll find it easier to keep track of what your machine(s) are doing.

Thanks....and I'll be hanging out, eventually, I'll figure out what the points are about,
(when I roll my cursor over the icon it says "8250/12500")
but for right now....I'm enjoying being part of the team. My sister died of CF when she was 13 (I was 18), so this is an easy squeeze for me!

You need to know that I don't even know what a WU is! :)...No worry...I'm in ....sanguine.....

(Does that relate to the 2 numbers I told you that appear? "8625/12500")

A Work Unit (WU) is the task that Stanford has sent to your computer to be worked one. A WU is a small portion of a much larger project, each of these projects are assigned a 4 digit number.

The WUs of each project are assigned a point value, depending on how much time Stanford estimates they will require. Each time you finish a WU, you and your team are awarded the points.

The numbers you refer to are are the "steps" required to complete the WU. Your computer has completed 8625 out of 12500 required steps. That WU is 69% complete.
(8625 / 12500 = 0.69)

I'm still hanging in there.

This Wednesday and Thursday, will probably me my last gasp, before we shut down completely for the summer, but I'll be back in August, with a vengence. That I promise y'all.

I'll still have a little small core that'll be clocking up some work units. Maybe I can stay ahead of Lrenh and Malsua :)

It's been a fun 5 months, and since I'm totally into this now, starting in August, I'll give it all I got.

Our team owes you, and your organization, a huge debt of gratitude for the herculean amount of effort, and results, you have made. I know you'll be back, and in the meantime many, many more people will have benefited from your contributions.

Thanks, Klutz. Have a great summer!

Klutz Dohanger, your contibution to our team's effort cannot be overstated. Having you on the team made it a realistic expectation to reach the Top 100. Now we can realistically expect to be in the Top 50 and maybe even the Top 30.

Fortunately, we have a great team thanks to the 300+ members and we should stay ahead of the DUmmies (in terms of daily production) until August.

We will def. look forward to having your CPUs back in August. Have a great summer and THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, thanks! I guess it completed it, because now it says "0/10000".

So, now that a WU has been completed.....how do I know 'which' WU it is? (I take it, once I know that, then I look it up on the lists that appear on these threads?

(sorry if this is sounding dense....apologies :)

Just keep the old, slow systems cranking away at 100% during the summer.

Without AC, they will eventually fry themselves and you'll be forced to replace them with new fast systems.

Seriesly, no one at the district will even notice the emergency purchase of ... a couple of hundred systems. After all, what is a few more bucks when it is fer the chillen?

Series.
