Yup!! Here's old caintry_boy trying to drum up some more interest in our [email protected] team... We need help!! It's not easy on your PC, in fact it will stress your PC to the max, HOWEVER, if your PC won't run [email protected] there's something wrong with it anyway...

Your electric bill will likely go up. You may kill some "worn out" hardware like a CPU or video card, BUT, it's a chance to help mankind...

Here's a link on how to join which includes a host of info about [email protected] > http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?/topic/152666-how-to-join-the-pc-pitstop-folding-home-team/

 

Here's a link to the [email protected] forum here at The PIT > http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?/forum/20-distributed-computing-teams/

 

Any questions, just ask...

Tx...we all love a good Ray Stevens tune but...hey maybe you could "alter" one (with Rays permission of course) to attract folks to Fold for The PIT!! :nuke:

 

Seriously folks, here are the links again:

Without clicking on any of those links, just tell me in your own words what is this folding.

If it's to keep my computer on 24/7 to help the rich, I want no part of it.

But I don't see how keeping it on 24/7 can help anyone except my local electric utility.

I'm not ranting, my mind is open - educate me on this folding.

What I posted on G+

 

Help humanity and our meager team, join the Pit Crew in [email protected] by donating your spare/idle cpu and gpu(Win users only) cycles towards cancer, disease and medical research! If you choose to do so, you'll install a small program that downloads a piece of code from Stanford U and said program manipulates(folds the protein) and upon completion, sends it back to them to examine for research. Meanwhile, you download another and keep on truckin.

Folding is basically a computer simulation of how human DNA genome folds/mutates during formation.

 

I don't see why one would need to have thier system running 24/7 to participate in folding. How ever, leaving it run 24/7 would keep the work running uninterupted. Understable that you wouldn't want your system running 24/7 on account of the utility bill.

 

[email protected] (FAH or [email protected]) is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics.

Still looking for team members folks! Must say that we've had 4 resurrections recently, people that we hadn't seen Folding for some time and Voila!, now they're at it again!! :clap:

2 questions.

 

Has folding produced any finished products or actual finished cures or treatments yet?

 

Does the program have a feature to detect when the CPU is being requested by another program and goes into a 'pause' state to allow the CPU to run on user desired apps?

First off, I'm not aware of any "cures" as of yet but I'll offer this > http://fahwiki.net/index.php/[email protected]

Secondly in my opinion I believe that newer client v.7.3.6 is far and away better at releasing CPU cycles for other tasks. I have no problem at all with one exception, if Folding on my vid cards and trying to view streaming video or doing other video intensive work, I have to pause [email protected] to allow the cards to "breathe" but all I have to do is right click the tray icon and turn it "off" then turn it back on when finished. You should try it again wd...

Well, I'd put it on the media server, will be running my 955be. Admittedly that will be idle most the time, but when I go to stream something it may have to transcode on the fly and I would have to be able to have Folding stop and let that happen with no user interaction.

On the CPU you should be fine. I've had no problems in that regard...

Granted it's not and apples/apples comparison, I have plex setup on my i7 rig that has to transcode periodically and it hasn't been an issue. In fact, *if someone opens a stream that requires transcoding, it cripples the computer to the point of being useless for anyone to do anything on it, unlike [email protected] that's transparent on the cpu side. Gpu folding is another story, I have to kill it to free up the gpu for video usage.
