Rosetta@home

 

Folding@home

 

They are doing a lot of co-vid19 virus research projects at the moment.

 

Is anyone else here using it? 

 

The Geekzone teams are

I am doing it for Barnacules team. Not done much as I only have a gtx 970 in one machine and cpu only i3 8100s in the others, and the system is struggling to get the work units out and back in.

 

Not sure that there would be enough people working for vodafone to want to make one, and it looks like the servers that do the group stuff are perpetually stuffed with load at the moment.

Was thinking more of a team of people ON Vodafone isp

 

As you point out the project is struggling to send out enough workunits , mines been sitting for 3 hours waiting more.

 

The Folding at home group did a AMA at reddit

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/flgm7q/ama_with_the_team_behind_foldinghome_coronavirus/

 

What would be rediculously cool, would be a small client running on the Vodafone TV unit

If Folding at Home is overloaded, then there is also BOINC that's doing a similar thing.

We could do a Geekzone group rather than a VFNZ group ;)

I have it running, joined the New Zealand group.

 

Looks like you need a discrete GPU if you want to to help with corona/covid-19 https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/foldinghome-put-your-cpu-and-gpu-in-use-against-the-corona-covid-19-virus.html

Let's do both?

 

Folding @ home Team geekzone
Rosetta @ home Team geekzone

 

Might do better if admin posts it to the main groups with a sticky? to publicise it?
