Now in existence Abandonia Help Squad...

To join you need to download and install this program found in the link below.

http://www.grid.org/download/gold/download.htm


http://www.grid.org/services/teams/team.ht...81-9B7018629AF6

Join our team with the above link after you have downloaded and installed the program.

Edit: There's an option for a logo, 200w x 100h. Does anyone want to design one or shall I just choose a random one from the main abandonia site?

This program is what is called a distributed computing program and if activated will use your spare computing power to search for cures for various illnesses. The calculations needed to do this require a lot of computing power to complete and rather then buy time on a supercomputer with money these scientist never have they ask the internet community to, together, form a supercomputer all of their own. With out combined computers we can do these calculations in a matter of months and thus help find cures for these deseases. Join NOW. k:

do you really need a supercomputer to find cures for illnesses? if so can you give an example how? besides i have a really old computer that may count for nothing in terms of computing power.(P2-333,128 ram :bleh: )

It takes a while to process. My name has not appeared yet either.

All help is welcome. There are certain research that requires large amounts of number crunching. These are very specific questions researchers want an answer to. They write a program that does the calculations but the vast amount of possible outcomes means it would take a lot of time (decades) for a single computer to go through all the possible outcomes in order to find the right answer. This is what you need a supercomputer for. You might for example want to know the behaviour of a certain protiene under certain conditions. For such a specific question you can then write a model from which you can find the answer to that question.
This is not a program that has the ability to find the cure that will heal all forms of cancer but its help is invaluable to the researchers.
