Folks, I'd like to welcome you to the 53rd edition of "The Lilypad Register", a once a week or so newsletter devoted to the AMDmb.com Folding Frogs. Here, you will find listings of our Team members milestones attained, notices and links to new members threads, as well as notices and links to mick 100 (Link) and Justin500 (Link) award threads. When appropriate, we'll post important info from Stanford. If you, the Team members, become aware of news worthy events, please PM BuiesCreek847 (David), or kiddetoolman (Tommy) so that we may post it here.
Here's the Owners Manual (Link) for it.
* The Genome@Home project's done.
The Genome@home servers have now been shut down. The project will officially end with the final stats update this morning. The project website will be updated to reflect the end of the project.
Thank you all for everything you've done to make this project such a success. I encourage you all to continue donating your computer time to scientific research through the Folding@home project.
All the best - Stefan Larson
* Folding Fact of the Day
We have added a new "Fact of the day" to the stats (Stanfords). These were gathered by Tug Sezen, our resident high school teacher, in order to try to "spice things up" a bit. As the name implies, these facts change every day.
Hope you find it interesting.
* Did you know?
Tug has updated his education pages and we've (finally) put them up. There is updated info on G@H, lay explanations of some of our important papers, and more! Actually, lots of neat stuff to explore. Don't miss the trivia game!
* We lost a fine Folding Moderator
UpAllNight (Steve) has had to step down as one of our Folding forum moderators so as to focus on family matters during his fathers illness.
Steve started his Moding career here on 06-14-2003. He's been the backbone of the AAFx project since its inception as well as the welcome ambasador for new members.
Doing a search for his posts in the Folding forum exclusively, I find a minimum of over 1000! Truly a great contributor.
We're gonna miss him and hope he can stop in sometime.
You can wish him well in a thread Tommy started; A heart felt Pat on the Back to UpAllNight (Link)
* In an effort to serve you better,
Ryan (Owner of amdmb.com/pcperspective.com) has just upgraded some hardware in the forum server. It's gone from dual Athlon MP 1.2 GHz CPUs to dual Athlon MP 2800+ CPUs and 2 GB of DDR333 RAM. Kewl!
