[games_access] Cure diseases, one computer at a time.

Hi, Javier:



There's no difference in teams. Feel free to join any one you'd like or even make your own. It's just for sport and competitiveness amongst the universities. My friend's team is just a personal one - so he's excited we're in the top 1%. Certainly some universities or organizations should be able to knock him off the map.



The only downside to the program I see is that it's too friendly - it doesn't start up automatically when the computer starts. I don't think many people will remember to run the program each time they start their computer. If you're savvy enough you can set it to autorun, but I'm no computer whiz.



Thanks for the interest and support, Javier.



-Matt

Hi Matt,

What if the difference if I join to 102855 team or to another team?

All teams work to the same project?

Hello fellow SIG members:



Let's use the power of our SIG to help cure diseases rather than shape the world around them.



A buddy let me know about a computer program from Stanford University that runs complex protein folding simulations that can help find the cure for many cancers, Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many cancer-related syndromes. If that interests you, download the program. If that doesn't interest you, read the next line and ask yourself again.



Why should I help?: In the time it takes to send a funny email, you could help save someone’s life – potentially your own.



This program works on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Playstation 3!



Download Page, with Instructions if needed: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download



Information Page with links to success stories in over 20 languages: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Main



*NOTE: To keep track of how many of your team members are running the program, enter “102855” as your team number after you download the program. In Windows, just right click the FAH icon on your system tray, Left Click “Configure” and enter the number in the “Team number” field.



And if you need help setting up the program, just ask.



As of March 2, 2010, there are 33 active members of team Mutaku using FAH. If you want to see if this number has grown before you make the choice to download, you can do so right here:

Let’s build that team, and save a life.



Thanks,



-Matt
