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. 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.

  • Just bought a Wii U, and I really dig it

    So, I'm not a huge console gamer. I hope on them for the exclusives, party games/multiplayer, and to play with the kids.

    With that said, I impulse bought a Wii U about a week ago, and I love this thing. I can have the kinds watching cartoons on the TV via Kodi while I play smash brothers on the tablet. I've installed home brew on the Wii channel, so I have access to all the Wii/Gamecube games on the external hard drive.

    Just tried it out with some friends at a cookout and it was a blast. I really think this thing deserves more attention. The backwords compatibility, controller options, and game catalog are actually quite good so far in my limited experience.

    Anyone else have one?
