    About time the team got some recognition
    Now those that don't fold yet, time to start, for the greater good

    We have tried to give it exposure...:


    HEXUS.net - Headline :: Join the HEXUS Folding@home team : Page - 1/1

    Would be good if someone could do a weekly piece for us to put on the mainsite? Volunteers?

    I don't mind doing it, unless you have someone more suitable.

    Got a lab machine folding away for an extra boost now - but only when I'm in uni
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Re: HEXUS Folding@home team now ranked in top 200 - and rising!

    The help thread will need re-writing too... as too many people think you can only do it with GFX GPUs

    I will re-iterate that pretty much anyone with any type of hardware can fold, from the Uber boxes and farms down to me with my 6 year old T-BredB! Not got a PC up to it? Use your PS3!
    Your box doesn't need to be on all the time, just when you're surfing it'll use all those lovely spare cpu cycles for the greater good.

    Interested? Get yourself into the distributed computing threads and ask questions... We're a friendly helpful bunch!

    I can help out 0ID if needed.

    I'll add my rig as this weekend I'll be away from the PC as it's Carlh's wedding.

    Don't worry I'm taking my camera to take pics so you can all laugh, and tonight I'll load folding on his C2Q system

    phenom 9850 BE is now running through overdrive to see how far it will go takes ages to test each mhz HT change, but that just adds to the suspense. was crunching GPU WU's at 2.5 as my X2 did at 2.85, so if i can get around that speed or a bit over i will be very happy should see sub 70min WU's tonight
