Folding for team 11108 is the shiz.  All the cool kids do it.  If you want to be a cool kid too, just start folding and everyone will like you more, since you'll exude that cool kid freshness.

Here's a video from the previous 3rd place team. We passed them recently but they're not far behind & they're trying hard to catch us.

I've got all 4 cores and my work computer chugging away. Send me one of those green monkeys in the picture and I'll figure out how to get my GTX 260 card to fold as well.

  A REALLY easy way to get Folding is get a live CD: http://reilly.homeip.net/folding/cd.html

Its easy to fold with Video cards and they're very productive. Go to Stanford's Folding@Home download page and scroll to the bottom. You will see a link for BETA: High Performance Windows Client. Download one of the clients and follow the installation instructions. If you run into trouble start a new thread on the forum and ask for help.

Don't be afraid to ask for help. There's a slight learning curve and we've all been there. Start a new Thread, post your syetem specs and ask away. 

We might be able to help increase your production too.

It doesn't take that much bandwidth. Unless you are running a ton of servers or other high-end equipment, you will probably top out at 20-30MB a day max.

so what's out team name gonna be?  don't tell me it's "11108", that's so lame.  I suggest  "built to destroy"!

The team number is 11108.

The team name will probably be: maximum_monkey

The whole idea is to have some kind of name that is monkey related.

Cmon folks, It ain't that hard to do F@H. I do it and trust me,,I am anything but computer savy.

It is very simple to set up F@H. And IF you should have ANY problems,,just ask in our forums for help ,

and you will have more trustworthy help than you get anywhere else.

Of course this F@H contest is only a small part of what we do. We have many different subjects to do with computing that folks offer advice and recomendations on as well.

Sure hope to see many of you folding soon and in the forums.

OMG! A post from T.O.M. without emoticons :-)

slacker :D :-D 8) ;-) :X B) :P

 

TOM's right about it not being that hard. Give it a try!

Multi core CPUs and most Video cards (GPU) run great but even old single core CPUs can help. PS3s fold too!
