Gamers unite!

Do you know someone with a mind-afflicting disease? A body-wrecking Cancer? Feel powerless to help them? Here's your chance...

Since October 2000, Stanford University has an application that you can partake in called Folding@Home. Over one million CPUs throughout the world have participated in this distributed computing project. The goal of this project is to research protein folding and misfolding to gain an understanding of how these are related to disease. See F@H's Executive Summary, in PDF, here.

Targeted diseases include (but are not limited to) such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

It's a small application that runs in the background of your computer (XP/Vista/Linux/MacOSX) or as a stand alone program on your home console, the Playstation 3.

I've started a Team for the members of Allakhazam called Allakhazam's Magical Research Realm (Team# 85020). Team Statistics: Please allow 3 to 24 hours to populate.

Simply download Folding@Home and join the team: To join, just put the team's number in the configuration panel (on graphical clients) or enter the team number at the first time you run the client (for text console versions).

You can view our weekly status here at Overclocking.com
A very nifty site for tracking everyones process. We've made great leaps and bounds since our inception.

For those who would like to run the console version, you can configure it to run as a service on system startup, IIRC, you can set up F@H on it's first run, but if it doesn't, you can do the following:

For Windows users, create a shortcut of the executable file in the same folder, right client on that shortcut, and in the target field, add a -config at the end. it should look like "C:\...\Folding@Home\Fah5xx-Console.exe" -config (My path is "C:\Program Files\Folding@Home\Fah504-Console.exe" -config), Then hit apply. Then, click on the shortcut to open the file, you SHOULD have the client asking you to set the options, first one being your User name. set this as the name you wish to fold under.

I will use these settings as an example.

User name: User
Team Number: 85020
Launch Program automatically as a service: Yes
Ask before fetching/sending work: No
Use internet explorer settings: No
Use Proxy: No (but if you use one, then yes)
Allow receipt of work assignments and return of work results greater than 5 MB in size (such WU's may have large memory demands): No
Change advanced options: No

If you do not see this list of options, then I can see if I can find a link to a guide, and post that, but following those instructions should hopefully be sufficient for the average folder, and the next time you boot into Windows, it should start automatically, and run quietly in the background.

I'm not sure how to configure this for Linux, but there are several guide on google for that.


Who knows, the life you help save, could be your own.

Hang on, I'm a bit confused...


We download the program, and it runs in the backround doing what? Runs tests and possibilities for the diseases and stuff?

Nobody man but every little bit helps right? I've had a grandfather die of Alzheimer's and another die from Cancer. Why wouldn't I use a computer or my PS3 to help research these diseases?

SETI@home is for a better cause! Which would you rather have, a alien death ray or sissy little cancer? That's right...

Chances are you're going to need this research before most of us Hellboi. Ever heard of a little thing called Diabetes?

I would recommend reading the many FAQS they have.

Folding@Home is the first program I downloaded for my PS3 when I got it. I'll be joining the team tonight when I get home.

looks like i can not. as i have already run folding for the first time years ago on all of my machines. i run CLI only and as i do not have windows except to play games and i do not run folding while gaming, oh well.

at least my folds are still out there and working for a good cause.

it is supper easy to install and just runs and runs in the back ground. do keep in mind that if your linux box is old hardware it will bog down a ton.

Sing, just right click on your F@H select Configure and enter your team number 85020 and thats it. Nothing to it.

sorry to say, but i am running Linux here. there is NO F@H icon to click on like there is in windows. i run the command line interface (CLI) vs on Linux. now at the schools with the MACs i should be able to join the team, but not from the house.
