    Thumbs up Folding@Home!!!!!!!

    Just wanted to remind everyone that we(AO) have had a folding@home team since August and that we can use all the help we can get there. We have 842 work units done and are in 442nd place. We'd appreciate any help we can get in improving these numbers. Won't you help, today?? Do it for the children(I don't know what I mean by that but it sounds good ).

    Here is our stats page:

    Here's where you can sign up, our team ID# is 11416:

    Lots of discussion about distributed computing and the historical record of the teams triumphant formation in this thread:

    And a hearty thankyou to all the new members

    Speaking of distributed networks, there is an AO seti@home team also. It looks like it was started a while back, then forgotten. I recently joined, and am earning my own. There's no contest, ranking, or anything like that. The only reward is the chance to find 'little green men'.

    Damn... I forgot that I was still doing that. You can't notice a difference on your PC. The program does a good job of making sure of that. I have it running on a lower end PC that I use for "intranet web server". It isn't on all the time, but for only being on when I'm on the PC, it isn't doing too bad...

    Mabye I can put it on the rest of em. The only thing is... I don't like keeping all my PCs on all the time. Its a horible waste of energy... but sure keeps the rooms warm.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    we're about even with someone...
    we've been hovering around 356 for a week or so now. this should be difficult to reach the top 100 with so many good teams we're competing with. heck google alone has quite a few teams.

    thankyou to our folding@home members, as well as seti@home and any other AO distributing team.

    remember: if universities get the knowledge before businesses, the results are available free to everyone. if a company beats us to it, they own the rights and can charge for eaach use. we can't let this happen!
    just like water off a duck\'s back... I AM HERE.

    for CMOS help, check out my CMOS tut?
