I've just found out about the Linuxquestions.org Folding@Home team (Team ID 12776) but there is only 5 or 6 users contributing. I would like to see a News item in some of the forums telling members about the Folding@Home project and our team. I also think that all new users should be told about Folding@Home when they register.
As I mentioned in my edited post above the team ID is 12776 not 12766, big mistake .
And yes, my sig was wrong too!
Anyway, thanks for all your replies and I would also like to see a new page about the team and have it included in maybe a community bulletin or news item.
Thank you to everyone who has added it to their sig (I heard about the team through Darin3200's sig ). I hope more users will soon start to contribute.
I'm just posting again to say how amazed I am at the amount of users now contributing, since I first started this thread 2 weeks ago the number of work units has doubled from 14 to 28 with 3 new users. The user wapcaplet99 alone has done 12 WUs!
I have just one machine going now.. its a bit on the slow side as its only a p233mhz but it should get there. I did have another machine going and it finished.. but me being a dumbarse accidently put in the wrong team number.. so it got credited under another team..
Anyways.. my little workhorse will get there soon, it got hit with a big task and its a pretty busy little server....
just wanted to bring this back to the public attention...not that too many people read in this forum, but....it's a very worthy cause, and i know that LQ has quite a following. any ideas how we can get more people involved? we currently only have 14 people on our team. i know that there are a lot of very bored servers sitting around chewing their cud.

About a year or so ago I started a very small campaign (for lack of a better term) that came to be called "Benefits of Folding" which serves to promote the project and get people started. It's written for another team (Team MacAddict4Life- team 18) but in the spirit of open-source all versions of it- forum thread, web page, and promotional flyer (high-quality layered PDF available for editing) are freely distributable and modifiable. Change whatever you want to make it suit your team of choice, but I would appreciate it if a link/URL to my website is given somewhere.
