It is still a great thing to do with your spare CPU cycles though.

SETI@home is still around! That's crazy! I've never heard of Milkyway@home. I switched over to folding because I feel like medical research is a little bit more practical than trying to look for encrypted alien signals. But mapping our galaxy is super cool. I could be convinced to make the switch. Do they have a similar team structure with tracking and leaderboards like the folding project?

It is similar. I first thought folding@home used the same BOINC management, but turns out I was wrong. If they did, I'd add that to the cycle.

They do have stats and stuff here: (That is my "team" of 1)

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^

Looks like Folding is still thing that is now useful for COVID-19. LifeHacker link.. I might just install it again in one of my more dormant systems. I haven't folding in years now but I don't mind throwing in some CPU cycles.

I meant to dig this thread up the other day when I saw that Seti@home was shutting down.

I used to have this on so many systems, but haven't had it installed in years.
