We only need to severely inhibit the virus for all intents and purposes not fully prevent it with a vaccine. Time is the most important factor at this moment. Do you understand now moron?

  • I have my old gaming pc running it now :) and working on trying to get my problem child AMD card working in another PC too, Wish there was a way of having stuff power up when there are work units available, I have a proliant G3 that's setup for hypervising so happy to stand up even moar compute **edit** but it's noisy AF so I don't want it running if there aren't any workloads available

How is anyone supposed to be motivated to continue when it's impossible to see whats even going on? You need a new video explaining how this all works and not just how to sign up to YOUR team for it to get yourself points.

  • Linus, while folding@home is a great project. Have you considered also building a twin computer to contribute to Rosetta@home? The research I've found online says that Rosetta@home does more for one side of the house for protein design, docking, and interactions while Folding@home focuses on simulations. It would be great to see one for both.

  • Stanford university made a f@h app for android also which can be downloaded via playstore but only compatable with certain apps.. So i found a apk and side loaded it on my lg stylo 4+ and it works flawlessly!! Usually charge cell at night so it is contributing at night time while it is charging. Kinda wish they would update app to make it more compatable with ALL devices out of the box and have features like its pc counterpart. Like teams. Etc. Maybe linus can tell about this one. Like he said. every little bit helps!

  • Yeah... I have three very capable boxes here, two WinTel machines with a 1080 Ti each and a rather powerful iMac, all three running Folding@Home with the "Any" branch to fight the covid-19 problem. BUT: About 80 per cent of the time NOTHING happens; every few hours only do these machines receive one or two work units, the most I had was three WUs at once, the rest of the time all that power is just... idling. The logs mostly say that there are " No WUs available for this configuration", only one or twice a day does one of the three CPUs and two GPUs get anything to do for f@h. Is there anmy way to manually enforce more work for/from this project?
