Covid-19 Folding@home

In order to help in the fight against Covid-19, there is something that we can all do using our computers. Folding@home is nothing new and has been around for a few years now. The goal is to utilise the idle computational power of your home PC to run simulations on protein dynamics. basically, when you're not using your computer the PC can crunch numbers to help our understanding of biology or even develop treatments for several diseases, including Covid-19.So by installing and running a simple program on your computer you can help in the fight against this disease.

Please check out this video which shows you how to setup the client and get started.

As a bit of fun, many companies have created their own teams which can keep track of the number of points you have earned through folding. The team number for Wizard PC Services is:

259311, please join me in this fight.

This process is completely free, there is no setup fee and you can stop whenever you want. Please note that this will utilise your available processor and/or GPU power so you will see your fan usage increase as the temperature increases.
