I joined and spread the word to TAAT.
I hear ya. Makes sense. I noticed some people ran other project than the Cancer ones, reading must be hard lol. I'll probably pull off in about a week from now. Then hit it again in a few more weeks.
Looks like he changed it to 1,000 years now. That is more of a challenge...lol.
Edit: Also, for those that don't know, this kids dad is a long time WCG'er by the name of OldChap. He is talking about his ongoings here: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,17232_offset,5840#618229
I wish there was a way we could crunch on this coronavirus, I'd have all the doors and windows open.
Today, IBM announced OpenPandemics , a new World Community Grid project in partnership with Scripps Research. Once launched, this project's main goals are:
- Search for potential treatments for COVID-19.
- Develop additional open-source drug discovery tools and processes that can be quickly deployed to address future pandemics and epidemics.
World Community Grid has been working behind the scenes to get the project launched as quickly as possible and we'll keep you up to date throughout this process. As soon as we begin alpha testing (internal testing of work units that will eventually be sent to volunteers' computers), we will make an announcement in this thread. We'll also update this thread with links to announcements about beta testing, the project launch, and regular project updates, so that anyone visiting the forum can quickly find the latest information.
In order to keep these announcements as visible as possible to all forum visitors, this thread will be locked. Volunteers are encouraged to post about OpenPandemics on the following threads:
- Coming soon: OpenPandemics - Questions about science and technology
- Coming soon: OpenPandemics - Questions about work units and badges
Also, we will be strictly enforcing our communications guidelines, which you can read here .
We're thankful for everyone's support for World Community Grid and all humanitarian scientific research. Now, more than ever, we're all in this together.
Hi everyone, to answer your questions:
- The research application will be AutoDock, which is developed by Scripps and has been used on a number of World Community Grid drug discovery projects in the past.
- At this time, AutoDock runs on Windows, Mac and Linux but not Android.
- We are working very aggressively towards launch, but don't yet have an expected launch date. We will keep you posted as we get further into the onboarding process.
OpenPandemics - Monthly Calls with Researchers
I'd have to look at the smart data, but probably not. It was in a rarely used laptop most of its life. I think what probably killed it was a combination of being powered off for long periods between use and just simply old age.8 years is pretty darn good all things considered. Are you already past its rated endurance for writes?
motqalden just a couple billion sector reads/writes, a few million read/write commands, and almost as many (corrected) read errors/error bits. Still 58(%?) life, supposedly.
Going get a new drive this weekend. Got everything copied to a flash drive for now (ugh it's slow...accidentally got a usb2 drive).
Edit, forgot the screenshot: *snipped*
