[邮件] FightAIDS@Home joins World Community Grid

Dear FightAIDS@Home volunteer,

Firstly I want to thank you the support that you have given to the
FightAIDS@Home project to this
point in time. Contributions of computer time from the thousands of volunteers
like you have made
a significant difference in the progress of our research efforts to develop
better HIV/AIDS
therapies.I also want to thank you for your patience in putting up with the
less than optimal
member feedback. We have great news for all of you on this account.

FightAIDS@Home, which has been run independently by the Olson Laboratory for
the past two and a
half years, is joining World Community Grid, a public computing grid with the
mission of running
projects for the benefit of humanity. The current FightAIDS@Home client that
was inherited from
Entropia has been less than ideal for both the FightAIDS@Home members and the
Olson Laboratory.
Several features of the Entropia environment have not been functional since we
took it over,and
newer versions of the AutoDock code could not be implemented in the system.

The transition to World Community Grid will improve FightAIDS@Home in important
ways. First it will
provide FightAIDS@Home Members with information about their contribution to the
project, including
the number of job credits you've computed and overall project statistics.It
will display 3D graphical
output showing computational progress, and provide a Member forum for
FightAIDS@Home discussion and
updates. The new environment will provide a maintainable and updateable
environment for AutoDock and
the science run on FightAIDS@Home, and it will help increase awareness of the
FightAIDS@Home project,
enabling us to run more advanced computations. Before the end of 2005 World
Community Grid will support
FightAIDS@Home on Linux based systems.

World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and
not-for-profit organizations
to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to
the high cost of the
computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid. IBM
Corporation has donated the
hardware, software, technical services and expertise to build the
infrastructure for World Community
Grid and provides free hosting, maintenance and support. We are grateful that
World Community Grid
has invited FightAIDS@Home to join their effort.

NOTE: Because of the benefits provided by World Community Grid for
FigheAIDS@Home, we will be phasing
out our current FightAIDS@Home Entropia client by the end of the year and
running solely on the World
Community Grid.

To start running FightAIDS@Home on World Community Grid, go to the updated
download page on this
web site ( http://fightaidsathome.scripps.edu/ ), or go directly to the World
Community Grid Website.
( http://www.worldcommunitygrid.com/ )
Note that there is more than one humanitarian project running on the World
Community Grid. The default
setting for a new member on World Community Grid is to contribute computing
power to all of the projects.
You can follow instructions on the World Community Grid Member web pages to
select the projects that you
want to support.

If you are currently running our old FightAIDS@Home using the Entropia client
you should first
uninstall by following the directions below:

   1 Onyour Windows Desktop, right-click the Entropia client in your system
tray, and
       select "Stop and Exit" fromthe menu. The icon should disappear from
your systemtray.

   2 Bringup the "Control Panel" by selecting "Start" and then "Settings"
and then "Control

   3 Double-clickon "Add/Remove Programs" from the Control Panel.

   4 Select"Entropia Client" and remove it: click on "Change/Remove"and
then click "Yes".
       Do the same for "Entropia App0047", and any other Entropia components
that you see.

Since the World Community Grid project represents a "new start" for
FightAIDS@Home, and we cannot
transfer any statistics from the original Entropia-based project, we have set
up a special team
called the "FAAH Originals" and invite you to join it as a long time supporter
of the project.
You will be joining the members of my lab and other original contributors in
rapidly building up our
team's contribution points in the new effort.Once you sign up as a member of
World Community Grid
you can join the team via the World Community Grid web page.

Again, I am deeply appreciative of your past support and hope that you will
stay involved and enjoy
the new benefits of FightAIDS@Home running on World Community Grid.

With thanks and best wishes,

Arthur Olson, Ph.D.

昨天发现 http://fightaidsathome.scripps.edu/ 也全面改版了....

都在像 SETI 学习换平台了.....我预计 WCG 或者 GRID.ORG 将成为最通用的生物医药类项目计算平台.....BOINC 将成为最通用的自然科学类项目计算平台.....

目前在 WCG 计算平台下,已经有两个子项目了,那么如何选择参加不同的项目呢?
