It's 100% legit... think about it... Sony worked with them to make a special client that will run on the PS3 and pre-loaded it on every PS3 they sell. They wouldn't do that for a botnet.

And yes, they do have a Mac client as well as a Linux one:

Look at all the research papers they've published as a result of this:

All that info isn't coming from nowhere...

Yea, since your CPU is being used more your comp may crank up the fans to keep it all cool Someone actually tested how much extra electricity [email protected] could make you use. First off, his system was a quad-core processor with SLi, so he uses a LOT of juice! He ran his comp as usual for a month with no folding, then ran it for month while folding, all hooked up to a killawatt meter. In the end: the [email protected] cost $1.53 for the month...

So yea, it costs a TINY bit extra, but it's helping people try to cure cancer, and thats huge.

Also, did you (stick as well) put in the CF team number? You guys still aren't showing on the stats page...

The CF Folding Team Number is: 168379

For the record, we're up to: 23,122 of 162,324 teams now!

Basically: Standford is trying to cure a lot of diseases, such as cancer, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Crohns, and many more.

Proteins regularly "fold" or assemble themselves, and when they "fold" incorrectly, that's where all these diseases come from.

So, they are learning how proteins fold, and how they get messed up, in order to learn how to prevent them from folding incorrectly or to be able to repair damage that has been done.

This could eventually turn into the largest medical breakthrough EVER.

The program accepts "jobs" from Standford, which are complex calculations they need done. When your computer isn't busy, it works on them, and sends back the results.

Also, if you right-click on the icon in your system tray, and go to "Configure" then click on the "Advanced" tab. You will see a "CPU Usage Percent" sliding bar. You can use this to adjust how much power it uses. To the right is all the way up, when I drop mine to around 65%, the heat goes down and so do the fans...

Yeah, I put Cf team number in. When I right click, status, team statistics, it shows the CF team page, and our work so far, but it only shows you as a member. It says it was last updated today, but still only showing you. oh well, give it some time. I'm building a new computer in the next month, I will probably set this up on that one as well if no problems present themselves. That one will be a 3.0 ghz quad-core(no OC for me) so I will be able to turn the [email protected] up a bit higher.

Thanks for joining! Repped! Sometimes the jobs take a while. If you hold your mouse over the icon it should show you the status of your current job.
