Folding@home / Engadget

So at the request of Engadget readers (or listeners, as it were) who overheard our otherwise waylayed grand plan of storming Stanford's Folding@home project, we're officially announcing the Team Engadget Folding@home, uh, team.

What is Folding@home? Well, in a nutshell you can donate your processor's spare cycles (when it's not computing for you, that is) to the incredibly complex study of protein folding; possible uses for the data including curing many forms of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, and all sorts of other diseases.

Want to know more? Go here.
Want to learn how to optimize your system for F@H? Visit hackaday's Folding@home How-To (just don't join their team, join ours).

Ready to go? Ok!
Team Engadget's F@H team ID is: 39227

Other questions you may have.

Q: Will Engadget compensate me for my time/cycles/electricity/etc.?
A: Nope.

Q: Do I win anything for being the #1 F@H unit producer on Team Engadget?
A: Nope. But never say never.

Q: Why bother?
A: It?s altruistic, it?s fun, and it might just cure a disease you may one day become afflicted with.
