If you have a ps3 you can then fold with it. The ps3 is currently the most efficient folding machine.

oh, is that what that option was....

I left it alone as I didn't understand what it was or what it did. I'll have to go and check next time I'm using it

Does that extension use a variant of BOINC? And can you crunch on GPU with the extension?

I thought the PS3 version ended like a year ago?

Yeah you can't fold on a PS3 anymore, it got terminated in 2012.

Getting back into folding now with the Chrome app; hoping to climb back up the group rankings. :) It's going a hell of a lot quicker on my PC than from what I remember with the PS3. :P

How can we see active members? Owait I see 12 active CPUs in the last 50 days, guess that's how you see, our overall team rank is quite good at 575 of 227622 :)

Does F@H still cause excess heat buildup? Haven't used it in... 15 years? But it gets real hot in here.

Yup.  It pegs your CPU to 100%.

Finally found a use for the remaining £220 or so of free Google Cloud credit I had before it expired!

Back from the dead... for Coronavirus19.

 

This article says Folding@Home is helping to fold proteins for Covid-19.  I reinstalled the F@H app, but I don't see any new options to fold specifically for it.

https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/ 

 

Does anybody else have any ideas?

You can configure the types of diseases you want to fold for at web control, but as you can see it is limited with the app prioritizing types automatically. Chris (fezmid in the folding group and Neowin reporter) told me that if your GPU is being used to fold, that is most likely Corona related, and I have done a few of these already.

Pro-tip: Folding at Home doesn't automatically start when you reboot, so make sure you configure it to do so, or manually start it up after a reboot! Our number of users has skyrocketed, but active users are dropping like a rock for this reason I think.... (bad form by the Folding team, in my opinion - make it an option!)

Ah man, I missed this thread. I re-joined F@H a couple weeks ago, but opted for the 'AMD Users' team I used to crunch for.
