      @Kenchan1337 I believe they are trying to work on modeling a vaccine which for all intents and purposes is currently pointless. Perfection is the enemy of completion as the saying goes. We only need to severely inhibit the virus for all intents and purposes not fully prevent it with a vaccine. Time is the most important factor at this moment. Do you understand now moron?

    guys I have a weak ass PC, a dell optiplex 780 w 10 GB of ram and a core 2 duo, no graphics card. I want to use it for emulation but would this be a decent use as well, or is it to weak to provide any help to the cause

  • Raka

    Please, if you do not have a decent dedicated graphics card, DO NOT FOLD right now. There are big wait times for projects because so many people with hodunk put-put computers and laptops are hogging projects, and their systems take several hours to days to complete a project, as opposed to 1-2 hours or less with good GPU's. When there was no wait time previously, it was true that everyone could help, but now those people are slowing down research.

  • damysticalone87

    Watching at your great build, I see 3 improvements, which would improve the performance by 40-70% (at least by 20% 4sure). But those 3 improvements I would try first of all for myself, if I had the money.

    I have my old gaming pc running it now :) and working on trying to get my problem child AMD card working in another PC too, Wish there was a way of having stuff power up when there are work units available, I have a proliant G3 that's setup for hypervising so happy to stand up even moar compute **edit** but it's noisy AF so I don't want it running if there aren't any workloads available

  • IamCoalfoot

    My landlord is kinda sticky about power usage, or else I'd probably be doing this. Still cool to see so many people joining in, even if I can't.

    Linus, i think you can single handedley provide more than enough computers for something like this. Look at your warehouse, put them ALL to work. You literally have thousands of parts lying around that can do more than most of us dream of doing. Get on it! Chop chop!

    Okay i've scoured the internet for hours now and nowhere is there any explaination as to what you do with the creedit you earn. nowhere. thats. completely. insane. How is anyone supposed to be motivated to continue when it's impossible to see whats even going on? You need a new video explaining how this all works and not just how to sign up to YOUR team for it to get yourself points.

    • Sev

      @curtis prest that's certainly one perspective. I suspect the point system was put in place to instill competition. Though FaH is set up to default to folding without you even setting up a name or team. when done anonymously there is no record for bragging rights. which anonymous (aka default) holds 3rd place among contributing team.

    • curtis prest
      curtis prest

      Sev So it’s literally bragging rights to your contribution to curing stuff? That’s kinda sad.

      There is no compensation. They're just 'fake internet points'.

    Linus, while folding@home is a great project. Have you considered also building a twin computer to contribute to Rosetta@home? The research I've found online says that Rosetta@home does more for one side of the house for protein design, docking, and interactions while Folding@home focuses on simulations. It would be great to see one for both.
