For those HUKD folk who would like to make use of their spare cpu cycles I have created a little [email protected]
Come join us and enter the fun, competitive and rewarding world of Distributed Computing.
I will post up relevant links and if anyone has any questions about what we do here please fire away and I will answer as best I can as soon as possible.
I hope some of you will come and support this effort.
The project homepage is: http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/
Team HUKD can be found here: http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/team_display.php?teamid=666
Team thread at Poem: http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/forum_thread.php?id=241
At the moment I am the only team member but I am sure one or two of my friends will be along shortly to help get the team started.
Then I am hoping enough of you will join the effort and take it forward.
Lets see how high up the rankings Team HUKD can get and help Biological/Medical science in the process.
Thanks for reading and I hope to see your name on the team roster soon.
To get started one needs to go to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/
Download and install Boinc (a project manager).
Click the tools tab.
Click "attach to project" and enter http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/
As a new user type in your username and password.
It will then attach to the Poem server and download your initial work.
There are many settings which can be adjusted, but that can be gone into later.
