QMD's temporarily offline

"We are in the process of building new QMD projects. In order to do so, we need to complete our analysis of the existing QMD data -- the current QMD projects have gone quite a long time and built up a very nice data set -- so we have stopped assigning new QMD's as we analyze the existing data set. These projects have been running for almost 1 year, so we have a huge set to examine!

We expect the analysis to take at least a few weeks (and potentially longer, depending on what we find). The upshot will be that we will be moving to second stage QMD WU's, which is very exciting to us. Thanks to all who have contributed on QMD projects and we'll make an announcement on new QMD projects once we're further along.

Freshly updated FAQ's

Possibly of some interest for those who have not visted the main folding site recently is an expansion of the FAQ, which now encompasses more detailed information on client configuration, and there is a dedicated points FAQ with further links to Gromacs and QMD information.

Welcome fellow DC Zoners to the Folding Newsround.

The aim of this is to keep the DC Zone membership appraised of any important news and announcements relating to Folding@home.

In time I shall add pertinent and/or useful folding related links........and any hints and tips etc to help us get the most out of our folding effort.

Please bear with me as I get this blog started, as I am pretty much a newbie at this kind of thing.

I shall get content added as soon as possible.

I hope, in time, that this will become a useful resource for the Folding section of our DC Zone community.

So, check in regularly to keep your finger on the pulse of Folding news.

Thank you.
