This is to open this thread, and to post a link to the previous 30 pages archived here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/1364/foldinghome-distributed-computing-at-its-best/

For those of you who are new to this, there's lot's of suggestions about how to get started on the first page of the above post.

FWIW - I'm a latecomer, only having seen the last 4 or 5 pages myself!

It's amazing how far Folding@Home has come here at BleepingComputer. I haven't been here since the very beginning but pretty darn close. I currently have about 7 or 8 machines running F@H plus I just bought a PlayStation 3 tonight, hopefully when I'm not playing games it can help for the cause! :thumbsup:

Just a note to all BC F@H members.

If one is involved in the project, then you are helping out.

Some of us run multiple systems at different levels.

It's good to see the upcoming members folding so hard.

Look out Yano! I see a few hard folders coming on.... giggle.

FOLD ON BC! As a team, we are under the 1200 mark now.

Actually according to folding.stanford.edu the fastest way to earn points is the GPU's. They ranked them like this:

Fastest - Middle - Slow

GPU's----PS3----CPU


EDIT: Grammar fix.

Nope. The GPU client works on ATI cards only.

(Which really sucks, because I hate ATI)
