Update

COVID19 Update #1

Empty servers

Since yesterday I have noticed that my computers are not receiving any workunit from the Folding@home servers. I have done quick research on the folding@home forum and I collected the following information:

  1. The servers which are expected to upload the work units are no further working units to distribute
  2. The number of volunteers has increased so much and in such a short time that the supply of work units has to be increased. The University is increasing the effort. Have some patience, we will receive work to do! 🙂

New members

I wish to thank all the new members of the team! Specifically to @adamralph and @rowtag who have subscribed to the site. I hope we may hear from them once in a while.

Many other have started to fold for the team and with some great perfomances. Have a look here:

Languages

I have been asked to change the language of the site into English as it makes more sense, being one of the most commonly used languages: I will look into that as it was one of my concerns since the beginning. For now, let’s start with a post!

Explanations

At this link Greg Bowman, co-director of the F@H project, explains what they are doing COVID19 and how we can help.

Let’s hope we will receive more Work Units to solve in a short time! 🙂

Fold on!
