KSU Individuals for Freethought has a folding@home team! What is folding@home? The best explanation probably comes from the official Web site: "Folding@home is a distributed computing project -- people from throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the project closer to our goals. Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than previously achieved." In essence, you're contributing your computing power with people around the world to fight real problems like cancer and Alzheimer's.
Joining is easy: download the folding@home program from the official Stanford folding@home Web site. Right click on the folding@home icon that appears on your system tray and choose 'configure'. Type in your desired username and our team number 174480. You can configure the program to run only when your computer is idle, in the background, and what presidence to give the program in processing power.
