    Hm, just downloaded for my old G5 tower. Anyone know what kind of network draw Folding has vs something like Seti@home (which is what I was working on before)?

    eh, not a lot. Its a few meg per work unit if you have large units.

    Last WU for me:
    [03:01:42] - Expanded 375685 -> 1807444 (decompressed 481.1 percent)
    Downloaded

    [08:54:21] Done: 582264 -> 560356 (compressed to 96.2 percent)
    Uploaded

    so, under a meg in 5 hours. I've seen 10Mb WUs, but they don't finish in 5 hours.

    Ok, sorry. F@H was slowing the computer down a lot, so I had to turn it off.

    Nearly four years after having prompted the Giants in the Playground Fold at Home team I've finally finished my first work unit. And will be folding more as I leave the new laptop to fold away.

    What I love is that they have had nearly 100 published papers from this. :D

    Its so awesome to increase the sum of human knowledge with otherwise wasted CPU cycles. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to find aliens too but I suspect protein folding is a LOT more likely to have practical applications and results. Like this:

    This came up in Cell Biology this morning! I was all, "Hey, I've heard of that from the gaming forum I hang out on!" (Weird looks abound.)
    If this were my own computer I'd totally do this, but seeing as how mine isn't really functional and this one is borrowed, I haven't installed this.

    A few friends and I have been doing something similar for a nearby college that does synthetic biology, I'll see if they want to join in on this, though they may not want to, I still will.
    Also, getting free bacteria that form into crystallized radios is fun. Even if they don't work most of the time and just transmit a strange hum on a low frequency.

    Well, I've just joined in. I'm a bit leery about leery about leaving my laptop running at 100% CPU usage, nearly 24/7. On the other hand, I usually leave it on almost 24/7 anyway and, since it's usually peaking at around 20% CPU usage, that's a lot of wasted potential...

    We'll see how it goes.

    I'll be putting this on both my computers as soon as I get home. They might as well be doing something useful while I'm at work all day.

    Edit: all cores chugging away. This is good stuff; I don't know why I didn't jump on board earlier.

    Hey there, fellow folders! I've got a quick question--what does it mean when a work unit says its status is "Update_Core", and what exactly do I need to do to update said core?

    Built a gaming rig for my office last summer and started folding immediately after it got built. Apparently, I've done 179 work units so far, but any future units will be done for the GitP Team as of today. Hooray science! Hooray distributed computing!

    There are still folders out there, yes? I've just recently remembered about this phenomenon, and have spread it to all my laptops and suggested it to my closest friends.

    It's unfortunate, since the PS3 contributions were quite substantial. As far as I can tell, it was because PlaystationHome was shut down, and the FAH platform was attached to it. It's unfortunate that they did not simply port it or redesign it somehow.

    Number 2 donor with massive contributions was PS3. I hope they bring it back somehow for the PS4.
