Yeah, you all better get started to get a head start. Soon I'll switch all my folding power over from my old team to the overclock.net team. So you better get going!

Folding studies how proteins fold and mis fold. Many diseases are atributed to proteins mis-folding... Studying how they fold and stuff may help find a cure... so fold for the cure! I or someone else will put up a how to install and run folding. You can make it run in the background and there is a program you can use to monitor it. I will put together a self extracting .exe file that will have everything you need on it and already have the team number in, you would just have to enter in your name.

I should also say this:

Folding At Home only uses the left over CPU processes. You can play a game w/ it running in the back ground or anything else no problem. I have my comp folding 24/7 except when I'm extreme benchmarking.

Folding runs your CPU at 99-100% usually. You can specify less... but why?

You download WU (work units) and it can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to complete (depending on the work unit and your computer, w/ a very slow computer it can take several weeks). Different work units have different point values. Once finished, it sends the work unit to stanford and downloads another one. If you're not connected to the internet and don't have auto dial set, it won't be doing anything until it can download another one.

SWEETNESS

I now have a reason to build up my AMD2000 and AMD3000 and possibly even my AMD 64 rigs. I didnt want to fold for just anyone, but I will gladly fold for Overclock.net!

Waiting on mobo from killacamaro, and maybe some money for cases and motherboards...then its on like donkey-kong!
