Foldit

Recommended Posts

I hope many of you are already involved in some way with allowing your semi-idle-CPUs to do some cooperative computing with such things as protein folding and other distributed projects? I'm on BOINC with the "United Socialists" for a few years now. It's easy to set up and it gives lonely PCs (or...) something to whileaway whilethey sit there waiting for email and podcasts...

 

Anyway, maybe "a lot" of "you lot" know about this game, "Fold It", or maybe not. I just found it as I went to Nature's youtube station in search of a missing monkey...

 

Could be fun -- at least the geeks in the video claimed it is! Plus I imagine you get a better understanding of protein folding intricacies and summat stuff like that there things.

I run this laptop (TDM machine) 24/7. It reduced my power bill by at least $15 a month from that old desktop. It could hardly play TDM and was as loud as a jet.
