    ION: A pixie in my Shin Megami Tensei Feng Shui game just rolled three sixs in a row. This, in DND terms, basically means she crit three times. She's a nameless mook that dies in one hit. But, she is the strongest nameless mook.


    EDIT: Oh god I'm sorry I thought this was the RB thread >_>

    While I'm here, what actually is this? I don't understand.

    For those who don't know what Folding@Home is, here is a brief run-down:
    In a nut shell, it is a distributed computing project working towards scientific research to prevent and cure disease. Basically, the researchers need a big giant computer to do some very complex mathematical calculations. That of course costs a lot of money, money they don't have as they are a non-profit organisation and all research will be published freely for everyone. So, instead, they organise thousands of people to have their personal computers run small fractions of the calculations in the computer's spare time, when it wouldn't be doing anything anyway.
    Short version, SCIENCE!

    Found out about a couple of neat things yesterday and thought this would be a good spot to share them.

    Foldit: Protein folding as a game, used for research purposes.

    EteRNA: RNA folding as a game, also for research, where any new RNA chains made are created in lab to see how they work.

    Thanks for showing me this! I can now say I donated to science! I also joined the GiantITP team, and it's impressive how much data we gathered in our team's life.

    Right now, four of my CPUs are dedicated to research unless I'm away, when I use seven of eight. Every bit helps.

    Well, I tried to install Folding@Home, but even at the 'light' setting it's killing my computer. Hot enough to fry an egg on.

    On your Advanced Control in the background apps, select Configure in the top right corner, go to Slots, choose ID 0, Edit, then select however many threads you want your CPU to use.

    What processor do you use? I have an Intel i7 Quad-Core 2670-QM @ 2.20 GHz and eight CPU threads, and four is only causing a little fan over-time, and Medium isn't any worse.

    Does it still run when the computer's in sleep mode? I generally close my laptop when I'm not using it so if that kills the process then I wouldn't exactly be of much use.

    Glad I was reminded of this project, I used to do it but it slowed down my computer to a crawl and I had to uninstall. Fortunately I now have a much better PC and it says ill be done with my first wu in about 4 days.

    To add to this, I also found Mozak, a game to basically reconstruct neurons, it looks like.

    This is almost exactly my field. How detailed an explanation do you want?

    EDIT: Here, I tried to write a short one and failed.
