    Did you know you could help cure cancer, by doing virtually nothing at all?

    Many of your fellow members on CFC already do!

    You probably have heard the concept: A little program runs in the background of your computer, only taking whatever spare power there is. It uses this power to play with proteins. The results it gets are sent back to the Folding@home people who use it in medical research.

    Collectively we do what a zillion dollar computer could. Therefore diverting funds back where it should be spent- on the research, not the equipment.

    You dont need a powerful PC, The program carefully monitors how much processing power is available. You will not experience slow downs because of it.

    There is no malicious spyware or anything involved within the program






    From the Folding@Home website:

    Well done to those who have finished folding projects! Kudos to:

    I only had one problem with the programme. Certain games I play that go full screen go back to desktop as soon as it does go full screen, so I turn it off for then. No other problems.

    Natch - for whatever reason, their line numbers (which we're into the 2000 on) are lower than the rankings. :confused: I think we're still around 2100.

    I told one of my computers the wrong user name! (lostciv_antares instead of lost_civantares), and it was one of the more productive computers too!:eek:

    (oh, and we can be a little geeky, but it would be nice with some cool protein folding articles methinks)

    Uh, just curious, but what games?

    Do you need to be hooked up to the internet in order to have this, this, strange program do whatever it is that it does? If so, then I can't, I'm a dial-upper and we have only one phone line.
