Default New HCF folding members please post here for intro and tag requests!

Hey guys;
Chriskwarren here. I am updating Pete_Scout's original team 54196 thread. Pete was a founding member of our team, who has since passed on. We fold in his honour still, and we continue to use this thread.

If you are new to our folding team, please post the following information about yourself:
  1. Your folding username. This is especially important, as the site admins will need your folding username in order to give you a nifty folding tag (looks like this and sits under your username. Ie. a person named 'Superjohnny' on the Hardware Canucks Forum may fold under the username 'Johnny Smith'. Please include both if different.
  2. Any other info you would like to share.
Have fun folding, and feel free to create a thread with any questions!

Signed,
Team 54196

Pete's original post below
---------------------------------------------------

Well, I was not a founding member of this team, but there were only 5 or 6 ahead of me ....

So please share with us who you are and your Stanford folding id if different than your forum id.

When i first started folding a few years ago I looked for a Canadian based team but had no luck. So since I had spent a lot of time on OCF forums learning how to build and OC pc's I finally decided to join their team.

Why do I fold? Because it is a good cause, more valuable to humanity IMO than other DC projects (eg SETI, Prime95/GIMPS, etc) and it gives me something useful to run on the the OC'ed PC's I like to build.

Why do I fold for HCF? Because it is a new Canadian team trying to get established, and because it will help recruit new people to the folding cause.

It is such a shame to see so many powerful computers around that just sit idle 90+ % of the time. Sure, it takes a bit more electric to run folding, but if the machine is on anyway, it is not really much more. And face it, very few of us can really consume 100% of the cpu cycles with most any applications we run. Even gaming tends to be much more video card dependant than cpu. Video encoding/rendering will certainly drive high cpu, but other than commercial graphics companies, very few of us likely run such CPU intensive for much, if any of our time on the PC.

Lots of people fold because they have lost family or friends to diseases like cancer, Parkinson's, Alzhiemer's, etc. That is partly true for me ... but more important to me is my basic desire to see humanity improve for the better, for the future of my kids, and theirs, and the rest of the people on this planet we share.

So start folding for team HCF!
And recruit your friends and family

lol, I was folding for OCC as it had at least some Canadian content but I was certainly happy HC started up

I have a genetic disability and I have recently lost a cousin to Lymphoma and a close friend has spent almost 2 years fighting it

When I build my friends pc's I tell them one stipulation is that they have to run FaH lol don't care if they use my ID or their own as long as they run it

Fold On!

I started folding for DFI-Street and still have a couple of semprons folding for the new DIY-Street. (I'm already close to that total here since I've used gpu & smp clients for HC).

Have not done any folding for other teams before but do we just fire up/setup a client and go here? If so I have a client setup and waiting.

Yep, I'm assuming that the mac setup will be similar to pc and it will prompt you for a username & team# (54196).

Glad to have you aboard!!!!

Ok, I have it running atm.

In the prefs of the GUI client there are tabs for all the settings.
"Identity" has text input boxes for email or name and team number.
"Network" has proxy settings and a checkbox to allow WUs larger than 5MB.
"Settings" has sliders to control polygons per atom, checkpoint frequency and WU type.

I will give the CLI one a try after this WU is complete.

Glad to hear you are gonna be showing active again soon

Folding does take some serious heat management ... especially if you have a few rigs going.

I just started up a P4 2.4ghz, just waiting on completion of my first WU. It's been a while since I last folded. I'll be adding more machines later.

I guess i'll add myself to the list once it's completed.
