The latest distributed computing venture: Folding@Home via Google Compute. First, get the Google Toolbar. It’s good. Then install the compute thingie from my link (google doesn’t publicize the Compute link. I think that’s because the Folding venture has already gotten pretty much enough recruits. Hehe. The Google team is more than 1/2 of Folding’s distributed client base!
I now run both Seti@Home and Google Compute. I found that Seti sometimes slows down my tasks… a 1/2 second pause here and there. It’s nothing big but a little bother. So I run Seti in screen-saver-only mode. I haven’t ever had any performance problems with Folding, so I let it run all the time. Like right now!
