Folding@Home: Team rank and member drive

For those of you out there who are new to MacRumors, or distributed computing, or both. This thread is meant to provide info on the Folding@Home team and to try to persuade more of you to join up.

First off, some handy links:
The Folding@Home webpage - http://folding.stanford.edu
The MacRumors Team page - http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/...tailed?q=3446/
The Statsman F@H info page - http://statsman.org/folding2stats/html/

The Statsman page gives you a lot of good info on teams production rates, and trending.

We are currently in 43rd place, if you don't count the "no team" users. Our goal is to find a spot somewhere in the top 30, but the competition is pretty stiff.

Feel free to ask us questions about running the various F@H apps, scoring, etc.

We hope to see some new faces on the team in the near future.

Our (mc68k and my) lab of ~30 PCs is back up and running at full strength again...I'm taking over all of the machines while he's on vacation.

Let's get cracking, people!

Yeah, we have another 30+ machines running OS 9 that we can't use.

Stupid Stanford...oh well, we should be getting new ones soon, and they'll most definitely run OS X.

I have about 30 machines at work that will be going up the OSX within the year (probably when X.2 and ArtPro comes out) When that is done because the machines wont get turned of and slept I will either run Seti or Folding, I haven't decided yet. When I do the username that we use will be added to one of the teams, I am on the seti team at the moment

Run SETI on half and F@H on the other half, that way you don't have to shaft one team completely.

A split is a good idea, I am going to talk to our technical head of IT about it, he is a nice guy and probably allow a split, anyone interested can see pictures of my work at:

Be sure to run it under the terminal app won't you, you'll get FAR more done with that than the graphical version

The Company is called Seven and we do Repro Graphics there and my father is head of the technical team there so naturally I get to work there and look after the macs, we are currently:

Installing an Airport network for the laptop users
Thinking about replacing all the Macs with Cinema 23" or 19 if they are out by then.
Playing with out XServe which so far I have not been able to fiddle with yet becuase at the moment it is at Seven London.

Seven London work for Apple doing Repro and media content for future products but they have very very secure Solaris servers that I just can't break through Its a great atmosphere, my, my father and my sister all work there

You are very lucky! And if all those 21" CRT's were replaced with 23" HD's it would look awsome!

I try to keep both the SETI and Folding teams happy, but you can't please everyone I run SETI most of the time, and when I need a change I do a few Folding units.

With 860 SETI WU's, I'm going full steam for F@H on both my iBook and Toshiba PC. SETI is winding down; maybe next year they'll switch to the Parkes Observatory in Australia where the WHOLE BLOOMIN' SOUTHERN SKY will be scanned, and not just a minor swath of it.

Besides, bioinformatics needs more than the radio-astronomers do.

I ran (well, surfed, anyway ) over to Macfora.com to invite their handful of folders into our fold.

Dunno how many will jump ship and add to the fun.

About the terminal...

Got the folding terminal app a few days ago. Have two questions. First, is there any easy way to script the terminal to open the file or to launch it on startup? OS X just treats it as an unknown document. Second, is there any way to get the terminal to give status updates (i.e. the frames finished as in the logs)? Thanks.
