"help find cure for diseases with idle computer time"

July 07, 2010  |  By dspmn

 |  Version: Folding@Home 5.03

Pros

Does not interfere with regular PC usage. Very low CPU/memory usage (configurable). using for 1 1/2 yrs. For more details http://folding.stanford.edu

Cons

None. Start with the recommended "Lowest possible" priority. Once you get more familiarity you can try the more advanced settings.

Summary

It makes me feels good about being able to contribute to finding a cure to Alzheimer's, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers.

"Just do it!"

January 23, 2005

 |  Version: Folding@Home 5.03

Summary

Made more sense than running SETI, so I switched. Massive support thru users and actual Stanford staff, who come up often and explain what they are doing and also publish results. Much more than othe DC jobs I have looked at

"Worthwhile distributed computing project"

December 25, 2004

 |  Version: Folding@Home 5.03

Summary

Makes use of idle computer time; does not intrude on normal use of computer. If you run your computer 24/7, please consider joining the F@H project!

Graphical and console (command line) versions available for Win9x, 2K/NT/XP, Mac OS/X, Linux.

I've been running the console version for Win XP/2K since Aug 04 on several computers. Can be run as a Service so it is invisible to the user. The graphical version can also be used as a screensaver.
