As we all know, The world as we knew it is currently on hold due to Covid-19 Corona Virus. Those of you who follow a few of the big YouTube channels (especially Linus Tech Tips) will have seen lots of talk about Folding@Home.

Folding@Home started in the Year 2000 and is a program that allows computers all over the world to effectively perform the tasks of a super computer. In days gone by its been used by enthusiasts all over the world to:
  • 1. Put their computing power to good use when idle
  • 2. Have a bit of friendly competition between a group of friends or communities to see who can complete the most work units and gain the most points

However now, more than ever you can work towards something worth while as the folding at home project is working together to get a better understanding of Corona Virus.

Taken from the Folding@Home Wikipedia:

Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems. With heightened interest in the project as a result of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, the system achieved a speed of approximately 1.22 exaFLOPS, or 2.43 x86 exaFLOPS, by April 12, 2020,[7] making it the world's first exaFLOP computing system. This level of performance from its large-scale computing network has allowed researchers to run computationally costly atomic-level simulations of protein folding thousands of times longer than formerly achieved. Since its launch on 1 October 2000, the Pande Lab has produced 223 scientific research papers as a direct result of Folding@home.[8] Results from the project's simulations agree well with experiments


Get started!
Download the Folding@Home Client HERE
Once installed you will be asked for 3x pieces of information:
  1. A username which you will be recognised for on the team score board
  2. The Team number which is 261462
  3. A passkey which you can request using the link on the software and entering an email address to verify yourself

Once you have completed your first work unit you will soon be shown on the team leader board at the following link:
stats.foldingathome.org/team/261462

We will update the leader board daily in this thread so we have a history of how well everyone is competing!

Good Luck!
