I've decided that since we have so many members it would be nice to start a Folding@home team.

Team #: 37855

Folding at home is a cancer research program that utilizes your spare computer power to mathematical calculations and simulations of folding proteins. Your computer is designed to run at full speed constantly. Bet ever realize how your computer works harder when playing a 3d game? Well thats full speed. You see, we we are browsing or chatting or doing idle things with our computers we are virtually using only abot 23% of our computing potential. What this program does is it utilizes your spare computing power and uses it to fold proteins. Now, a common misconception is that your computer will slow down if you use this application. Thats not true, its important to realize that it only uses your spare resources. Meaning that if your playing games  F@h literally does nothing. But if your playing solitare its using more of your processing power.
Its also very competitive it measures how much you have done and posts it. It is really fun to see who has folded more. It will also be a nice test to see who's computer is faster!

Team Name: Outpost Universe

Team Number: 37855

User Name: (Enter your own).

Have fun guys! Folding at home is a really good cause

Maybe I should build an evil contraption, consisting of hundreds of old processors.

Than, link all the processors together, after this is done, I will activate my uber-processor computer, and have 10 GHZ worth of computing power for any cause!

That is, it will be superior until I hook my 2.53 Ghz machine to it =^-^=

youve read the comic "zits" havent you lol

there is also another thing like that, it uses your spare prosser power, but it searches the signals from the Aerocibo raido tellescope for inttelagent life its called seti@home, although I think the cancer thing is more logical lol

im sorry, but my computer uses all it resources to cool itself off

stupid 1.5 inch cubical fan tryin to cool my whole laptop

It uses CPU-time to cool itself? That's a first!

Alas, I have already formed a (sub)team myself. See my sig! Although, admittedly, I haven't folded much lately (and neither have my fellow team members). Maybe I'll do a brief switch and donate a few spare CPU-cycles.....

it doesnt use cpu time to cool itself, my tweeked vesion of windows works with a series of relays that have been solderd in so that ALL spare electrical energy goes to the fan

Sooo......what you're saying is that if the CPU usage was to move to 100%, your PC would crash because all available power is being used for cooling?

some advice, get a better compute lol

I am also running this program now, 20% at the time of this post on my computer's first assignment, and it isn't slowing me down at all :D

no, im saying windws automatically opens or closes a series of relays depending on cpu usage, moniter color (some colors are more efficient), the power dedicated to the a:\ (wich i never use)

when the power that has been dedicated to these tasks isnt in use the relay closes (or opens, i forgot how i wired it) and sends the power to the fan

So, with all that in mind, what's the problem with folding on your PC? Considering it only uses spare CPU-cycles.

Monitor....colour? You reroute power from the monitor?

No, wait......

Relays? Rerouting power from other components? Tweaked version of Windows to handle all this? BUH? What on earth are you running there? And how on earth did you accomplish this "customisation" that I have never heard of?

Now you can add my nec-v20 to our team. Just joking, i have a bad Amd athlon 2000+ 1.7 Ghz processor that working for you inded. My nec-v20 is in my basement. Actually, I dont think that the 10 MHz the Nec-v20 gives will make any differnt.

Its weird in terms of point systems because depending on the number of frames your WU has transfers into points... But don't worry Plym enjoy your glory while lasts!... And how come no one else is folding eh?
