Folding@Home with Team Hardfought

By K2 on May 10th, 2009 at 7:07 am EST

Hiya gang. Just a heads up about Hardfought’s participation with the Folding@Home project. Jenn and I both have upped our work unit output considerably since we started using the GPU client as well as running the normal CPU in conjunction with it. Nad has joined the team as well as a couple others… our ranking has climbed about 60 points over the last couple weeks and continues to rise. You can see our team stats to the bottom right of the news posts – we could break back into the top 1000 if we could garner some more participation.

Soooo… for those of ya that have never folded with us before, or have but stopped for whatever reason, join our team and start folding with us. Our team number is 46304 and it’s simple to join. It’s for a great cause, helping scientists figure out all of the different ways various proteins ‘fold’ so that we can better understand how they interact with other proteins, help find cures for all sorts of diseases. So join up! Put those idle hours your computer sits and does nothing to some good use.

Other news – I have 30 days from this post until I am officially done with active duty in the Army. Muhahah ;-) Almost all the pics I took while in Iraq my second time around have been posted in the gallery, so have a look if you’re interested. Also, go see the new Star Trek movie… it fuckin’ rocks. Cya.

    Joined, started my first fold, got to 300/300 and info sent but now it just hangs all day "attempting to get work packet" and none of my results show……

    WTF?

    Results can take a few hours before they show.

    Also, did you make sure to set your team number as 46304?

    Try restating the client to see if it will pull down another work unit. Windows firewall can interfere with that, so check to see if it’s blocking it if you have windows firewall enabled.

    I had to change some sort of setting, dunno how it downloaded the first one yet couldn’t submit it when done and download another…

    Anyhoo it works now and I hit our group board at number 27 with my 1 WU so far, hehehe

    I wonder who Spitblood is… anyhow, it’s nice having some people to fold with now. Gets tiring carrying the team alone. :roll:

    Could use a few more of ya to come on board. Jeng started folding again, so we now have nine active people. We’ve climbed almost 100 points in overall team rankings – at this rate we’ll break back into the top 1000.

    Mav, I know you just built a new beast of a system. You better put those idle cycles to good use ;)

    I’m pushin my way up the ladder :)

    Only thing really holding me back is my wireless modem, has to be reset alot or it just disconnects itself at around 12 hours active time.

    Meh, I have almost the same issue with my wireless router. Have to remember to repair my connections and/or reset my router every day, b/c it keeps losing connection to my computers.

    I’m in now, had to get the system setup and good to go.

    Awesome. I saw that Wid just joined up as well.

    FYI – we just broke back into the top 1000 :D We’re ranked #999 as of this post. Great job all.
