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 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.
