Subject: [rescue] Distributed Folding - the Geeks team
When I asked "what can I do with this Challenge L," Mike Meredith
suggested http:www.distributedfolding.org. I'm doing that. I've joined
the Geeks team, I'm running it on a couple of machines, etc.
Although 40 people are signed up for the team, only a few seem to be
doing anything. If anyone has some spare MIPs (even if they aren't MIPs
MIPs), there's more room.
They have clients for Wintel, Linux, various Mac/OS Xen, Solaris, IRIX,
The client, while not, perhaps, having the most elegant interface known
to man, seems innocuous. You can start it and stop it without losing
It will run completely in the background.
I don't think we'll ever catch the big teams, but I rather enjoy the
idea that I'm actually contributing something to medical research while
heating my house....
