What distributed computing projects do the readers here feel are the most
Extropian or Transhumanist worthy.
I've currently got a 3.6 Ghz Pentium 4 and 1 core of an Intel 2.4 Ghz Q6600
crunching <mailto:Folding at Home> Folding at Home.
The other 3 cores of the Q6600 are running BOINC <mailto:Rosetta at Home>
Rosetta at Home.
Both are protein folding applications.
I ran cancer targets first at UD (United Devices) which finished in 2007 and
Find-A-Drug which finished in 2005.
But no drugs to my knowledge have yet emerged from the data from either
I'm thinking of buying a Playstation 3 to do <mailto:Folding at Home>
Folding at Home on also. I understand that the IBM cell processor and
the software written to do <mailto:Folding at Home> Folding at Home on the
Playstation with help from Sony runs crunches proteins many
times faster than a Quad Core PC.
The reason I only run 1 core on each machine <mailto:Folding at Home>
Folding at Home is because I've not been able to get the Intel multicore
version of the <mailto:Folding at Home> Folding at Home client stable on my
Vista machine although the single core runs fine.
