i recently saw that folding @ home has taken on covid-19.
it's been a while since i've done any folding@home.
for some reason, my main gaming rig sits idle most the time. i blame you guys.
since i am now home full time with pay, i decided to fire up the gtx1080 and fold away.
is anyone else here folding?
does vogons have a folding@home team?

Does their client support Windows NT and Windows 2000? I could unleash the power of my Pentium Pro and Pentium II Xeon servers.

they don`t have enough data to feed all machines anyway, thats why your machine is idling.

How much grunt to I need to throw at this to do anything useful? Would something like a C2D / Athlon 64 x2 with a GeForce 605 or a Radeon HD4670 1GB be able to get anything done? That's about all I have around here for "spare" hardware. I'm pretty close to the new distribution server LTT are setting up so at least that won't be a bottleneck.

I understand F@H has been going on since the Pentium 4 was hot beans, but times do change...
