Folding again

    Just for giggles, I started working with Folding@Home again. I've got a pretty nice laptop with a GTX1070 video card, so I'm starting to crank out WU.

    The client download is very simple (there's even a browser-only client) and looks much easier to manage than it used to be. You don't need a password anymore, and you can generate and use a passkey instead. If you want access to your old stats, you just need to use your old username.

    If you were on Team GA, your username is on this list. I signed up for Team GA again (Team 79189). I've long forgotten or lost whatever login credentials I had when I set the team up, so I can't edit the team information. That's mainly the link to stuff here, so NBD.

    Oh, and here's the cool graph stats site. They changed the way they work, so they don't show user stats there unless the team is ranked at least 2000. But they've still got the team info.

    I'll stick with Team GA for a bit and see if anyone else joins me - I'm primarily supporting Alzheimer's because that's one disease that scares the crap out of me. Yeah, F cancer, but at least there are more treatments for cancer these days.

    Wow, about half of the names on that list are no longer around GA but can be found on the Most Wanted list at the post office.

    Is that a joke. Arc?

    Arc takes every chance he can get lamenting the past members.

    Does it work in Linux? I have an Ubuntu server that I use of off-line website design and file storage.

    Just checked. Yes, they do.

    Especially those sent to the joint, banned, or are unregistered members. (I strive for accuracy.)

    cmhbob,

    Did you stop folding or are folding off-team? I started folding on my web-server on 8/14, then took a 2 week break because I had to upgrade to the latest Ubuntu, and I got to folding earlier this week. I have 13 WUs done, I don't see a change in your stats.

    I started a different team since I didn't see any results on the team from anyone else. I'm now folding with Quiet Professionals, team 234447
