MadCast: Suixide22

Fight COVID-19 with your Computer

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends!

Hope the pandemic is treating you well. As a gaming community, I thought it appropriate to share a little slice of how we can help join the fight against COVID-19, and in the future, many other diseases. It utilizes your PCs CPU and GPU to help with cloud-bases supercomputing tasks that aid researchers. Pretty cool eh? 

To get started, head over to https://foldingathome.org/start-folding/

You can set it to do this while you are at your machine, or only when you are idle.

I have created a MadCast team, which you can join using team number: 260703

If you can spare the time and computing power, please do.
