Folding@home – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I have really gotten back into the distributed computing projects. In addition to Malaria research, I have also installed Folding@home and WorldCommunitygrid. This is helpful because having more than one project means that your computer is always working on a project.
For example, this morning the wireless connection to the computer stopped so that paused one of the projects since it wouldn’t continue without a network connection. However the BOINC client automatically started the other project that was already downloaded. So the computer is working all the time when I am not using it. It is a good feeling knowing that your computer is doing something pro-social and helping others.
