    Didn't we already have a folding team dating back to the FRDB days if not to the IIDB days?

    Yup, same one AFAIK.

    There was a thread at FRDB where a few of us would check in.
    I was just starting one here so Ray J would have something to link too when the other site is finally shut down.

    I am already folding with another team. I just thought I would drop by and tell you about using the Chrome application to do the folding. This has two great advantages
    1. You get about double the points using it.
    2. Work units are very much smaller. Depending on your hardware they will take between 5 - 30 minutes each.

    The Chrome app can be downloaded here https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...nofo?hl=en-US/

    I was contributing to this a couple of years ago but the Folding@Home app kept crashing on this computer and I had to keep killing it and restarting it, so I gave up and forgot about it.

    I'm back up and churning out work units now. Don't have much in the way of CPU power to contribute but it's better than nothing.

    Funny, I remember the 'folding@home phrase from both the previous forums. But I had never explored it or connected it to the protein folding problem. Probably 15 years ago, when I was running a non-profit concerned with genetic discrimination and the extreme over-promising by the bio-techs and the Human Genome Project, I actually was encouraged by the existence and enormity of the problem. And I remain heartened by its persistence in the face of this kind of massive effort.

    While human genetics has advanced our medical practices and health ever so modestly (and created billions in wealth for scientist-entrepreneurs, Wall Streeters and educational patent-funded endowments, I think the dangers of this type of knowledge and the mis-use of it outweigh those gains and are likely to do so, perhaps forever.

    Interesting

    I tried the Chrome folder on my desktop (paused the other program) and it's taking about 5 min to complete a WU. Don't know it the total points will equal/surpass it's normal output but it's really cranking them out

    Nothing to see here, move along

    It is still a good thing to do and you now earn 125 points per WU.

    Forgive the ignorance but what do the points do?
