    Default Folding @ The Windows Club.

    Join our folding@home team and help us cure the worlds diseases.



    What is folding?

    Folding@home uses your PC's spare clock cycles for medical research.
    Download the client from Folding@home - Download the Folding@home software application and join The Windows Club's team by using the team ID: 180585.

    The client will only run when it feels it can by using 25% of you CPU if that 25% is required at any time by
    additional programs the client will stop working until its free again.

    You can find out more about folding at the Folding@home website Folding@home - Main

    I will follow up on monthly stats with the most active folder.

    Additional: As well as the CPU client you can also download a GPU client for high end PC's. You may run one or the other or both if you prefer.

    Download GPU Client from here: LINK

    Both clients run on XP, Vista and 7

    I hardly push threads back to the top of the pile unless I feel its in the interest of the group.

    Here is more information about the Folding@Home group: Wiki Link:

    Folding@home facebook page

    Finally getting the street cred that its creators have so long desired, the multi-platform, distributed computing network known as Folding@Home is to be recognized by Guinness World Records. According to the group, the network is now the most powerful distributed computing cluster in the world. The system, which utilizes the power of more than 670,000 PS3s, PCs, and lawnmower motors to crunch data, has overall computational capabilities greater than a petaflop (which is a ton of flops). The linked consoles tackle a number of tasks, and scientists harnessing the network's power are able to study complex medical problems -- such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's -- much more quickly. Vijay Pande, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Stanford University and head of the Folding@home project says, "Without them [the Folding@Home users] we would not be able to make the advancements we have made in our studies of several different diseases." Now that Guinness has recognized the system, it can proudly stand next to luminaries such as the man with the longest fingernails, and fastest land animal.

    Looks to be something like SETI@home (searching for ET's) thingy. Noble cause.

    Very similar to seti@home apart from the fact that it actually generates results lol
