Well guys we've finally been booted from the top 500! it was a good run, well over a year and with myself hardly contributing in that time. In spite of my renewed efforts and crixx as well, it's just not enough power to keep us in the top 500. We need to go on a drive to push past the 500 again and to even break the top 400. We have ALOT of powerful systems on gatt, alot of which have GTX and HD class hardware and those who fold know, GPU folding >> CPU, those that have PS3's as well. The top folder on the gatt team started with his PS3, based on his scores, I am unsure whether he has supplimented with CPU/GPU folding power, but i'm sure his PS3 is still folding away.

So ENLIST TODAY, CANCER PATIENTS and GATT NEED YOU!

Bad news. My 8800 that has been silently folding for the last maybe 2 years has finally buckled under the 24/7 stress. He is now no more. Such a great soldier, still deciding how best his remains can be honored.

Anyway, replaced him with a much weaker soldier in the Geforce 210, basically performance is cut in half. No hope of catching up to xel now plus I see neph, though inactive on the forums is making his presence felt in the folding effort!

Well with my lack of a Nvidia card and owning a heat behemoth 4870X2 folding on the GPU isn't ideal atm, thus i've been sporadically using the SMP client x2 (6cores). BUt Virtue tends to be on my PC hence it's shutdown oft. That aside I have a peepsqueek client running in the office and if YOU can't catch dem men... even less so I. But once men making the effort is all that counts! Good job Neph and Xel!

'soup guys

since this is somewhat related i decided to post it here instead of another thread.

Quote
Foldit is a revolutionary new computer game enabling you to contribute to important scientific research. This page describes the science behind Foldit and how your playing can help.

http://fold.it/

so even if running a lil smp on your 65W processor is a snore, take a gander at this maybe this will tickle your fancy.


now for some srs business.

I've been thinking the reason some people may not be folding is more than just digital bystander apathy but also because of a serious lack of WHAT folding is...we know what it is meant to accomplish but not WHAT it really is.

After a hair pulling amount of google-fu and some srsly out-of-my-league chemistry i have reached the conclusion... proteins are fking badass. let me break it down to what i understand it to be:

proteins are made up of amino acids...these fuckers are less complex than protiens but they aint no H2O molecule don't be fooled. these proteins start of as 2d strings and through the folding process create a 3d molecule that performs some required\needed function.

These amino acids determine the way the protein folds and what role that macro molecule will play.

It is capable of folding in less time it takes a neuron to fire in your brain. (think ns not ms) this is also why distributed computing is necessary for the research. it happens too fast for observable science to gather any usable data. taking a page straight out of the physicist if we can't observe it and we can't use math quickly enough to understand it...SIMULATE THAT FUCKER!

MATH AND EVERYONE'S PC TO THE RESCUE!

in order to figure out what protein folds (or mis-folds as the case can be sometimes) into what protein structure, the 2d protein is taken and a computer is used to simulate the folding, however, this is such a complex process that a single computer would never be able to finish a single fold in a timely enough manner to make the research progress. So a large database of proteins was developed and using a distributed client, a single possible protein fold is given to a user to figure out (the work unit).

now for the geekout part...

if we overlook the biological nature of the proteins and then look at the way it works...

we have small building blocks (atoms, molecules, ions, zwitters, etc) that make up larger components
amino acids, that in turn combine to give us, you guessed it, proteins.


wow

diodes, transistors, resistors -> addin cards -> systems

lets look at it harder now

the protein fold is determined by the amino acids in the structure...it determines the fold and the fold in turn performs a role...

this is like building a machine...that programs itself...

fking terminator shit yo

however...this is all capable of occurring in under a few nano seconds...

shit brix

biological structures...surpassing your i7 any day...

correct, add, remove as you see fit.

would like to suggest the veteran folders come together and maybe make a sticky to promote the geekier side of the folding...maybe if we could get ppl excited about what the science is behind it we could pull more ppl. Proteins that have roles determined by the sum of their parts. This shit is fucking fascinating.

also the production of screenshot(ed) guides for setting up linux smp/uni clients would be great for the new guys even with all the resources out there, a picture speaks a 1000 words etc etc

Save solar powered water heaters as those don't actually generate electrical power, but rather use a system akin to a radiator in reverse. They use them in large scale in other caribbean islands, and I recently saw them for sale in TT newspapers. That aside I think it's a good idea Neph and we can work together on it, i've already made a recommendation regarding GATT's new interface and we'll try to promote more as we move forward.

Arc hit the nail on the head.

I've been very aggressively shutting off computers/laptops left right and center at home because of an ever increasing T&TEC bill.

Maybe if they had folding clients for modems and wireless routers since those devices are on 24/7.

Or perhaps get some income generating activity that could justify our computers being on 24/7 and offset the costs against that.

Could have probably installed it on an office PC that I have on all the time but they've locked down rogue apps.

Thoughts?
