A ) What is meant by 'folding'?

B ) How do I join Redline?

C ) What do I do to earn points?

I've read through a few pages of the [email protected] threads and seems like a fun thing, but as I've only been on these forums since december haven't really got a clear idea what it is

I wish I could help but I also have no idea what 'folding' is. Looks like a bunch of numbers on a screen judging from Tom's latest video.

It does seem to be all for a good cause as I also read a thread on it. Alzheimers is an issue very close to my heart as my mother suffered from that vile, disgusting disease. Quite possibly the worst disease known to man.

I think i'll leave it at that befoire I get myself worked up lol

A)

What is protein folding?

Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.
Check out this video too from Ray's (SnW) sig.

Simply download the appropriate clients and use team number 98860 when you configure them. GPU tracker is the easiest way to get started. Check our guides section in the [email protected] section.

C)Let the clients run to complete and turn in work units. Once they are turned in you will be credited points.

Any more questions, feel free to ask!

So it's not going to run in the background and sap the living daylights out my framerates, just a stress test for processors? And what do you mean by 'turn in work units'?

It is going to stress your CPU to the max, however if you are doing something else while folding, the other application has a higher priority and will there fore still get the processing power needed. I have mine running while gaming and there is not a big difference in fps.

Of course you can we have people on our team who run when they can with what they have.

Several others like myself have Rigs that run 24/7 when we aren't plagued with failed WU's or random BSOD's
