The team "Curse of 32" has been created at Rosetta@home for all the dry rigs from Einstein looking for work. See my posts below.

What is CASP7


>Hi Dave....CASP7 is an international competition to evaluate individual computer programes that predict protein structures against each other (something like they have for computer chess competitions.) They compare the computer solutions from all the 'competitors' against a recently solved (but unknown to the group) protein structure. This competition takes place every 2 years and the group at Bakerlab won the last one, CASP6, with their 'Rosetta' programe. If 'Rosetta' sounds familiar it is because the CASP6 program (or something very close to it) has been used by the World Community Grid project for over a year with good results. Please check the Rosetta website:http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/..they have a ton of information and an almost daily 'Blog' from Dr. Baker, the head man......Cheers, Rog.

I have also moved my PC's to Rosetta. I seem to recall not too long ago the Admins of Einstein asking for more computers. Now they have a miracle in Akos and they do not seem to care.

I may reevaluate Einstein when CASP7 is over.

>Hi Georgina, just a note to you and Tweakster...Rosetta has a neat trick under the 'Rosetta@Home Preferences' called 'Target CPU Run Time' whereby you can set the time your machine will run a WU ie. from 'Not Selected', 1hour, 2 hours etc to 1 day. It gives you more flexibility on how you run the Project. The default value is 4 hours....Cheers, Rog.

You may wish to examine this

You may wish to examine this entry. So there are sound reasons for having another project to crunch for, and fortunately BOINC was designed to cater for that. Best of luck with the 'Curse' :-)
Thank you to all that have contributed, and an early 'welcome back' should you choose to! :-)
Cheers, Mike.

Sounds very interesting, good crunching!

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. - Richard Feynman

tweakster,

Since I seem to be a bit thick in the head these days, and haven't yet figured out how to set up BoincStudio to simulate an extra host for more Einstein work, AND because I like the idea of personally assisting research to possibly find an answer to my pancreatic cancer, I've been putting my extra CPU time into Rosetta. Would you allow me to join your party over there? It wouldn't amount to very much, but it may as well go to "help" a team, and I consider you and CDNgeezer as friends, so ...

Mike; The purpose of the "Curse of 32" team at Rosetta is to let the Einstein Admins take a look at the crunch power they are wasting. Any Einstein cruncher with a dry box is welcome to join. They lost four of my rigs this week, and two more today. None of these were running under 2.2 ghz. I think the fastest was an A64 at 2.54 ghz. I welcome any Einstein cruncher who is running the optimized applications and keeps getting stiffed for work by the server to keep your rig busy at Rosetta. Join the team.
