Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

Join Xtreme CPU's Folding Team

How would you like to participate in finding a cure for such diseases as Alzheimer's, Cancer, Huntington's and Parkinson's?

What if i told you it wouldn't cost you a penny?

Now what if i told you it doesn't require you to have any medical knowledge and it can be done while your performing your daily computer work/gaming?

You would be very interested in a program like that wouldn't you?



Well here is your chance. Come join Xtreme CPU's Folding@Home Team.


So what is Folding@Home?
Folding@Home is a distributed computing project. People from around the world download software to there computers that allows all the computers running the software to act as a large super computer. With this supercomputer scientist are able to study how proteins fold and miss fold.

So what is a Protein and what does it have to do with curring disease?
Proteins are like natures work horses. Before a protein can carry out its function they have to assemble themselves or Fold. Its when Proteins do not fold correctly, or misfold, that we get diseases like Alzheimer's, Cancer and the others mentioned above. Folding@Homes objective is to better understand how proteins fold so that they can figure out why these diseases happen. From there they are better able to find a cure.

How do i get involved?
Go to Stanford's Folding@Home page and download the client that best suites your computer. For more information about the different folding clients and which one you should use check the links below.

XCPUs.com Team Needs You
F@H Configuration Guide

Does this effect my computer's performance and does it bog down my Internet connection?
No, the clients are designed to use only the processing power your system isn't using. If your system requires more processing power then the F@H clients back off. F@H only connects to the Internet when it needs to download a new work package (WU) or when it needs to send a completed WU in.

You said something about a team?
Yes. As you complete WU you are awarded points based on the client your running, the WU's size and the amount of time you completed the WU in. You can start your own team or join an existing team helping the team work through the ranks of the more then 74000 teams. You can also work anonymously and not get involved in any teams. When you download and install your client you will be prompted to choose a user name and a team number. Xtreme CPU's team number is 75255. Once you are part of a team you can track your teams stats at EOC's Folding Stats Page. Here is XCPU's Folding stats. You will see there is a wleth of information there. Only the teams that are in the top 800 ranks get to see there folding stats.

How about those cool F@H images in your Sig?
Once you have submitted your first WU you will be able to add a Sig image that shows your folding stats. Check out our Sig Image Guide. There you will learn how to set up a sig image.

For more information check out the Folding@Home Home page and the Xtreme CPU F@H Section. If you have any questions about F@H feel free to post it in our F@H section.

    In life, we’re told to applaud the creative. Even if what they create turns out to be useless, a pat on the back is a prerequisite for thinking outside of the box. Except in the case of the jet-powered Mini Cooper. That’s just plain stupid.
    Obviously he and those who helped him never read or heard about Newton's first law of motion, that an object in motion will continue in the same direction unless disturbed by a force greater than the force propelling it. In other words, the jet engine was putting out more power than the tires had the ability to control.

      Basically brakes will make some noise, this is normal... Transmission is behind the driver seat, and you can hear it clunking sometimes, this is normal. You can race it, they just recommend that after you race it you get your fluids changed. yadda yadda. Pretty rad car i must say!

      • I was able to purchase a 400, for my Bronco, for $400. At a swap meet, I managed to get a brand new Street Demon 625 carb, for $200, valve cover gaskets for $2, and exhaust manifold gaskets for $8. Hoping next weekend to finally make the swap.

        • Who among us would ever have guessed that Chrysler would be outselling Ford?

          https://www.yahoo.com/autos/s/chrysl...131300668.html

          [QUOTEFiat Chrysler (FCAM) U.S. June auto sales rose 8 percent from a year ago, boosted by the continued strength of its Jeep SUV brand, while Toyota (7203.T-JP) and Ford Motor's (F) trailed behind—seeing U.S. auto sales jump 4 and 2 percent, respectively. Separately, GM's (GM) June sales slipped 3 percent despite the best June on record for its Chevrolet crossovers.

          It was the first time Chrysler has outsold Ford at the retail level, which doesn't include corporate fleets. [/QUOTE]

                  • jeeps are too much maintenance/repairs. I have replaced every sensor on my 2001 Jeep grand Cherokee and the power steering pump and a wheel hub etc... the list goes on and on.

                          • My dad had a '97 grand cherokee, it was pretty solid, overall. Had it for quite a long time, and traded it off, with like 180k miles. I wouldn't mind having a Jeep Wrangler. I was actually looking for one, when I found my Bronco, as those were the only two vehicles I wanted, for a trail rig/mud toy.

                            • Now I know its only my opinion, but judging by the photo of the wreck at the bottom of the article, I agree with the closing sentence that "Looking at the severity of the wreck and the destruction it did to the car, it’s difficult to imagine any technology or safety device that would allow either Rodas or Walker to survive". Why I have sympathy for Walker's daughter, the idea that Porsche should be sued for someone else's stupidity is ludicrous to me.

                              • So after the Subaru, I traded that in for a 2014 Nissan GTR Black Edition. The Subaru was just too slow for me.



                                In 2016 I was reluctant to trade the GTR in for the new Telsa P100DL. (worse Mistake EVER.)



                                I am driving a Jeep now. I picked up a 2007 Wrangler Rubicon 2-door.



                                I've done a lot of work to it to make it offroad most gooder.
