    Default Official BOINC team of ForumBiodiversity.com

    For those of you who have read the Folding@home thread, this is a similar project, but better and more open/free.

    Official site:

    http://boinc.berkeley.edu/

    Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkele...work_Computing

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...uting_projects

    BOINC is another distributed computing project, however, unlike Folding@home (which is proprietary), BOINC is egalitarian and open source, and there are various universities and scientific projects you can contribute to. If you want to support science, but are not a scientist yourself, BOINC is the way to go.

    Currently, ForumBiodiversity.com has official BOINC teams you can join with your BOINC accounts, in the following scientific projects:

    1) Einstein@Home: project studying gravitational waves, maintained by University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    2) Ibercivis: Spanish multi-purpose philanthropy project.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    3) LHC@home: Study of Large Hadron Collider, maintained by CERN.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    4) MilkyWay@Home: Study of the Milky Way Galaxy, maintained by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    5) orbit@home: still in alpha state, but important project studying the hazard of near-earth objects.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    6) Rosetta@home: very similar to Folding@home (protein folding), but BOINC based and maintained by University of Washington.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    7) SETI@home: one of the first BOINC projects, studying the search for aliens in outer space.
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    8) World Community Grid: maintained by IBM, multi-purpose philanthropy project similar to Ibercivis, but in English and much bigger!
    | ABF Team URL | Wikipedia

    9) μFluids@home: microgravity and microfluidics project, maintained by Purdue University.
    ABF Team URL | Wikipedia |

    The multi-purpose projects contribute to various sub-projects, and are based on philanthropy, everything from calculating intricate clean water simulations to fighting AIDS/Cancer/etcetera and various other cool stuff, like studying the human genome and so on.

    The other astronomy projects are also important but deal mainly with astrophysics and focus on one single aspect; SETI for example, studies the search for aliens in outer space, but it's questionable if this project will ever be useful in the near future as it is like searching after a needle in a haystack, so I recommend that if you're going to contribute to BOINC, do so in more useful projects that may actually come into good use in the near future.

    Here's a more informative URL about the various BOINC projects, and we have a Biodiversity Forum team for most of these projects:

    http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php

    And you can download the specific operating system version of BOINC here:

    http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

    I recommend that you use the Win64bit version if you have an AMD64 version (x86-64) of Windows or Linux installed, for optimal performance so that you can rack up work units faster, especially if your CPU is multi-core.

    This is completely voluntary and up to you if you want to support science, you can do so in a team work. You don't need high performance computers for BOINC, you can also contribute to BOINC with an older computer, however, with high performance, state of the art computers, your BOINC total credit statistics will increase much faster.

    Here's an example of what it will look like, when you've contributed to a BOINC project:

    http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/show_us...?userid=435098 (Einstein@home EliasAlucard profile)

    http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/hosts_u...&userid=435098 (Einstein@home profile for all my computers and operating systems I've contributed to Einstein@home with)

    If you have any further questions about BOINC and would like to participate in BOINC, just ask!

    Today I've decided to give it a chance and joined climateprediction.net, a subject which effects us all...

    thus... more computers = more processing speed = one super computer?

    Yeah, but there are more important projects than climateprediction (which is a bit pointless in my opinion). In my opinion, the most important BOINC projects are the biology and astrophysics focused projects. Also, World Community Grid has a lot of good stuff, like anti-cancer projects, which is why I think Ibercivis and World Community Grid should be the top priority projects to support with your computer. Also, the work units are relatively small and finish fast with older/slower CPUs.

    Question Is BOINC's start-up idiot safe?

    I'm on the train now. World Community Grid, here, as a catch-all program to start with.

    Does the BOINC-program start running automatically at each start-up of the computer, or will there be a pop-up of the program instead?In case the BOINC-program has to be "manually" turned on at each start - or rather, in case one is not notified - it's easy to forget for an absent-minded snow dweller.

    Hi Elias I was just looking at the forumbiodiversity team page over at the MilkyWay@Home project. How on earth did you manage to get 1.5 million credits?

    Oh wow, nice graphics card.

    Looks like you spent more money on your graphics card than what I have spent building my new pc (graphics is only onboard stuff at the moment). Its a cheap modern pc (I was still on a single core processor in 2011).

    Yeah I think its time we started to use our idle CPUs and GPUs for good causes.
