    Folding @ Home

    I've been running this app for years and there must be a large number of us whom have our computer on doing nothing but running MaxAIM or X-Input while we game.

    So I thought, why don't we put that idle processing power to some good use and help cure illnesses such as Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Parkinson's, and many cancers by simply running a piece of software on your computer while you game.

    The software folding @ home runs computer simulations of protein folding in the background on your computer. Essentially turning a group of networked computers into many super computers. Your computer can provide valuable data to scientist which could one day help someone you love.


    I have therefore created a CronusMAX team, it's number is 228014. Go here - http://folding.stanford.edu/ - and download the software please. Turn that idle processor power into something that can help many people.

    Thanks,

    KittyDawn.

    Lol, good job mate. My GPU has been busy for the last few days now so I haven't been able to run F@H as much as normal. I'll catch up again though

    We are in the top 10,000 now. I'm a bit disappointed with the community though. We help a lot and ask nothing in return, having this run in the background would be a nice thanks. I was going to give away a CM to a random person in the top 10 when this had been running for a few months but no one has bothered contributing.

    It is a shame, it is for a good cause and doesn't impact my system while running x-aim at all.

    Still, we are in the top 5,000 now http://fah-web2.stanford.edu/cgi-bin...teamnum=228014

    It is, and it's not likely to go away any time soon, it's used for many things related to learning more about diseases and such to possibly find a cure to some of the bigger ones =)
