Points for Science


Recommended Posts

  • SWR Staff - Executive

I would like to re-iterate and respark the fire that Evaders started some months ago on donating computing time to science (which requires little to no effort of our own).


Now Nvidia users can add their video cards to the Folding@home project. We know you're not spending all that time playing games with your video card. Use its processing power for a worthy cause. I am not sure if its only nvidia card users that can do it but I believe all can. Im not sure.


Its about folding/unfolding proteins. They have thousands of users across the world run a program called "Folding @ Home" on their computer that processes a strand of protein in the background (does nothing but use computing time) and sends the results to Stanford. This allows them to compute as many sequences as possible to help find solutions to fighting diseases. Its pretty neat.


All you have to do is run the client in the background on your computer. Thousands of users across the world are contributing. The SWRebellion Network has a team going to try and compete with other teams. Please donate your computer's computing time, especially when you aren't doing much, you won't even notice it, and if you are really bored, you can watch it at work if you chose. The SWRebellion Network (http://www.swrebellion.net) team ID is 96904.


For more information, visit the Folding @ home project website.
