I was wondering how many of you guys participate in the Folding @ Home?

I just started and find it pretty cool. [URL="http://folding.stanford.edu/"]http://folding.stanford.edu/[/URL] team #157262

It is basically the worlds largest supercomputer via distributed computing, with the purpose of trying to understand how proteins fold and unfold; that way, a cure for many diseases could eventually be achieved.

It's pretty simple, there are 2 options: 1) you can download the CPU client that does the folding using your CPU [URL="http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download"]CPU Client[/URL], or 2) if you have a graphics card that is a CUDA-class GPU for NVIDIA (primarily G80 and later) or R6xx or later GPU's for ATI. [URL="http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther"]GPU Clients[/URL]

The GPU one is faster, and i recommend the ones with the viewer, sometimes you get ones that look trippy.

(If you have a PS3 you are probably already doing this, if your connected to the net)
