mozillaZine Folding@Home Team Completes 20 million Points
Monday February 26th, 2007
Folding@Home is a project at Stanford University, based on the distributed computing model. When installed, it runs in the background, using idle CPU cycles to compute protein folding. The project aims to find cure for diseases related to mis-folding of proteins.

I am very pleased at having the opportunity to put unused computer time to a worthy cause.
I've been folding for the pcmech.com team but i've become practically inactive so I guess you got a new member.

I have 3 desktops set up in my office. I use them for various tasks occasionally. the 2 lesser-used machines (one is linux, one is XP) are running folding@home. my linux box is a dedicated Folding@home machine, as I rarely use it anymore. and my secondary XP machine is practically a radio, and a folding@home machine. the Folding@home software is a great way to utilize idle CPU clock cycles. I recommend this to anyone who lets their computers sit idle for long periods of time. I'm proud to be a member of the MozillaZine team!
