Longevity Meme Folding@Home Team Hits Rank 500

Congratulations are due to members of the Longevity Meme Folding@Home team; they've worked, posted, recruited and donated - and pushed the team rank from 700 to 500 in a mere ten weeks since I last gave an update. As promised, I will be mailing goodies to those participating members who want a memento of the occasion. If you joined the team prior to today (August 28th 2005), send me an email with "Folding@Home 500" in the subject line and containing the following information:

  • your mailing address
  • your Folding@Home username

Well done! Here's to hitting 300 in another ten weeks.

Readers who are not familiar with the Folding@Home program - in which you donate spare processing cycles from your computer, to be used in investigations of the biochemistry of Alzheimer's and other conditions related to protein folding - may want to start with my introduction at the Longevity Meme.
