Folding@Home

Postby 900i on Thu Jun 14, 2007 5:59 am

I have taken it upon myself to start a Linux Mint Folding@Home Team. This is a distributed computing project run by the Stanford University.

http://folding.stanford.edu/

Our team name is, Team Linux Mint, and the team number is 76140.

Clem, could we have a separate sub-forum for Folding@Home related matters, please.

Any and Everyone is free to join in and participate.

This is our "Stats" page, it will be updated when we have uploaded our first "WU's"

Very nice initiative.

900i: Let's see how the thread evolves. If there's a lot of talks and topics about this we'll make a sub-forum for it.

If you want to throw some serious money at it and use some expensive hardware, that's your choice. On the other hand you can put old hardware to use instead of throwing it away, thats also your choice. I just fold with the machines available to me, at times that fit into what I'm doing at that particular moment, you guys fold whatever way suits you best. I think Stanford are greatful for the processor time whichever way they get it.

I think some do and some don't, depends what parameters you set when you configure the client app when you first run it.

That's the sort of thing we need people to do, get out their old kit and fire it up. No need to run KDE or Gnome, just text based.

I'm using my laptop, and desktop this weekend. When I get back to work on Monday I will fire up my workstation and that can run all next week, but i will shut it down again on Friday. I just run F@H when I feel like it, sometimes not at all. The reason I got 6 wu's this weekend was that they are all low score Gromacs cores and my machines chomp through them at 7 minutes per unit. :shock:
