We need YOU
    #2298441 - 02/03/04 07:56 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ever heard of Folding@Home? Ever seen the link to the team on the main page? The basic idea of this whole program is a concept called distributed computing, which allows certain processes to be distributed between many computers allowing a result to be reached many times quicker. Shroomery is currently rank # 193 out of a 1000s and our rank is still getting better. My theory is that if we make the front page (one of the top 100 teams), people will wonder what kind of site we are, and we may get some new members. It could even possibly get the whole theme about shroomery out, and show a site as ours isn't disorganized and incompetent as many of the blissfully ignorant public think about the shrooming community. It may just be a dream far from reach, but its worth a shot. Grab an old computer or even the one you're running and DOWNLOAD the software, and add a username and team # 12679. You can choose the screensaver client, which will run as a screensaver (won't interfere with normal computer use) or just the graphical client and set a % of CPU to be used. It involves no maintenance whatsoever! Anyone can run it, and use as much CPU % whenever they like (small amounts as to not interfere with operations and gaming). Every little bit helps.



The point of this graph is to calculate present and future totals in relation to other teams, the projected totals are calculated and recalculated on a hourly basis, and the projected totals reflect the growing amount of points per day and the growing amount of users. If the users have been increasing like they are, we could jump 10 spots in the next few weeks.

Good post ! I couldn't agree more. I think this warrants being stickied for a while.

I tried to join the team, but my PII 400 wasn't contributing anything serious...

I'm waiting for my new computer. Athlon 64 3200+ will do a better job.... I'll join the team again...

Actually, it is only supposed to use cpu % that is not currently being used.  So if you're just chillin on the shroomery, it gets lots of cpu to use and you won't even notice its there.  I've let it run while I've played graphics intensive modern computer games and it doesn't seem to slow them down either.  It probably doesn't get much work done though so just stay on the shroomery, two birds one stone :wink:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Not in $$$, but lots of good karma for everybody involved. When the cure for XXX comes out, you can sit back and enjoy the thought that you helped find it by donating computer time.

Are you aware that there is no post in  The FAH Forum Team Page for the Shroomery?  I think that might introduce some new people to the Shroomery, as well as boost our team performance.  People come to that forum looking for teams to join, and I think a post with the Shroomery logo and a link could get us some new memebers.  Just a thought.  :mushroom2: :mushroom2:
