Folding @ Home

Forum rules
Welcome to our modest though robust team of folders! You are all more than welcome to join us or ask specific questions about how to go about folding but please start a new thread to post your questions, this way nothing of importance will be lost and everyone here will help you out.

If you just want to chat folding then the Folding@Home Home thread will be great!

For me personally every WU we complete is helping the folding team support the drive to find new ways to combat disease.
It's nice to have brag points and be at the top of the list (or climbing)though ^*^

It looks like I'm getting some 1800 PPD now running SMP(CPU folding) on Ubuntu64 inside VMWare, it's tough to say anything more exact as I can't get FahMon working there. It was a lot of trial and error and PEBKAC but the results are worth it. :yesnod: :peanutbutta :energetic: :yahoo:

I'll be locking this thread soon as it's just too big(Sorry Dave :)). It's kinda sad as that there's a lot of good info in there but no one can find it unless they have the patience of Jobe! I will be trolling through there and extract and make new threads of things I find interesting or helpful or just incorporate them into a guide and giving the contributor the recognition.
