Today testmy.net has joined the effort of Stanford University folding@home program. This morning I have setup a team with the project and I would like to invite you all to help find cures for an endless number of diseases. If you haven’t already heard about folding@home take the time out of your day to learn about it at http://folding.stanford.edu/. Basically by joining the effort you would download a small program that uses your unused CPU to help process data (see the website for more details).

Google, Apple, Intel, Dell, many other large corporations and many-many home users run the program in a collective effort. The program is safe, very non-invasive and easy to setup… best of all it may save lives. So why not put your unused processing power to some use and join our team!

Not only will you possibly be helping humanity you might just have some fun in the process. By joining the team you will have the opportunity to compete with-in our folding group to see who can process the most data (who can fold the most!). On top of that testmy.net will compete with other groups.

If you would like to join first download the Folding@home software from Stanford University’s http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/download.html. After you have installed the program, add testmy.net’s team number to the program configuration. Just to let you know, this is not an affiliate program or anything like that, testmy.net doesn’t get a ‘kick back’ or revenue from you downloading or installing the program. This is a Stanford University project whos goal is to help find cures for such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s disease.

Does this suck up all your system resources? Nope read this

Information on setting up the team number::

First, download and install the program
Setup testmy.net folding@home team number
Second, right click the folding@home logo in the tray (it looks like a red gear) [sorry if my desktop offends anyone… lol]

Last, enter the team number… click OK and your DONE! Ready to fold…
testmy.net’s team number is 44352

FAQ’s about the folding@home distributed computing project can be found at the http://folding.stanford.edu/faq.html
