Summer is that time when it gets hot outside, just thought you may need a reminder with how long some of us have been in lockdown. Many of us on the folding front like to gear down a little during this strange mystical time of higher temperatures as we believe all our folding activities have heated up the world too much so we want to let it cool of a little. Seriously though, it can be hard to stay motivated during summer as the heat starts to climb, so to reward you for your efforts I like to run a small event. We have all the motivation we need currently with the ongoing crisis we face so I won't waffle on too much. I just want you all to know that your efforts are appreciated.

 

What is Folding@Home

Folding@home is a network of volunteer computers distributed around the world that aims to perform biomedical research with the single intent of helping to further understand and develop cures for a range of diseases such as; Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's and most recently COVID19. The exact research that is done is simulating the 'folding' of proteins in the body, this is important because the function of a protein id directly related to its physical shape. And this, when the protein is created in the body it needs to reshuffle its shape to get into the correct structure to perform its task. Many illnesses can be linked to faulty proteins in the body such as many cancers and neurological issues, along with a wide number of other general health concerns. Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems, over the last few months reaching a speed of around 2.5 Exaflops due to massive support taking the fight to COVID19. Currently the network sits just over the 2 Exaflop mark, Making it four times faster than the top 10 supercomputers combined.

 

PASSKEYS! (they're really important)

 

Don't forget to get yourself a passkey from the link below to ensure that you hit the points requirement, the passkey is a feature that was added a while ago to the Folding Client that helps to authenticate each user on the network, an added bonus of this is the fact that it allows you to qualify for QRB(Quick Return Bonus) Points, QRBs are extra points you earn for submitting work units more quickly, such as if you have faster hardware or let the client fold full time, rather than on idle. QRB credit is awarded after 10 WUs have been submitted. You can get your passkey from the link below.

https://apps.foldingathome.org/getpasskey

 

Please remember that I will be writing my usual daily update blog once the event kicks off, the blog can be found linked below.

This is just a PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is historically a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always. 

 

Check your stats out here! Bare in mind it can take some time for your first WUs to appear so leave it a day or two.

Flying to pick up GPUs for folding event counts as essential travel, goshdarnit.

I will be going through the Steam keys I have in the community pool and added them to this today. Sorry about not getting back to anyone's messages for finishing up the post but something came up that needed my attention. I will be doing my best to finish dealing with this issue shortly then getting around to sorting out the post and, prizes and messages. 

 

Thanks for your understanding!

Anyway, let's steer this back to the topic at hand!

 

Weather seems to have cooled down quite substantially for us over in Britland so it is looking like I may be able to remove power limitations and let the cards have at it. 

 

My new OC seems to be stable on my CPU so that's nice also. 

 

I will be sorting out making sure we have stats cooling with @leadeater sometime in the next day or so. Furthermore I have received a couple PMs about potentially helping out with the datasheet. 

 

All in all things are going smoothly here at #TeamLTT HQ, it is looking like the event should run fine for the most part(fingers crossed).
