, in our effort to work together to help fight cancer, MS, Parkinsons, Alzheimers and other diseases, has risen to the occasion once again!What is Team UBBDev?
"Team UBBDev" is our entry in the [email protected]
Research Project. Team UBBDev, otherwise known as the Semi-Official UBB™ Protein Haxxors is made up of fellow UBBDev members who have joined our effort to help search for a cure for many diseases - cancer and alzheimers among others. All are welcome and encouraged to join up! What is the project
The [email protected]
project ("FAH") is dedicated to understanding protein folding, the diseases which result from protein misfolding and aggregation, and novel computational ways to develop new drugs in general. How can I participate?
You can participate by donating your brain. Not your brain per se, but spare processing power that your computer isn't using. All you need to do is download and install the [email protected]
Agent program. The program runs in the background without disturbing your computer, where it performs computation chemistry. After the program finishes with its sequence of molecules, the results are transmitted to the [email protected]
server, and a new work task is downloaded. The program is secure and will not detect or transmit any other files from your computer.What are Points?
Each participating member generates points based on their contribution to the project. Points are awarded based on a calculation using the CPU time used to complete a task along with the power of your machine. By joining Team UBBDev, your results will also be added to our team total. Points are also used for promotional programs, such as contests and for charitable donations. Where can I get the Team UBBDev Haxxors avatar?
Your points will also determine your Avatar ranking. When you join the team and generate your first results you will be rewarded with the Blue Avatar. When you have generated 10,000 points for Team UBBDev, you will be rewarded with the Bronze Avatar. When you reach 25,000 points you will receive the Silver Avatar and upon reaching 50,000 points, you will be rewarded with the Gold Avatar. Moving up the ladder... there is Platinum at 100,000 points, Coffee at 250,000, Code Red at 500,000 and Jolt at 750,000. We've recently added a few additional levels for our Power Haxxors.... Emerald at 1 million, Sapphire at 1.5 million, Ruby at 2.5 million and Diamond at 5 million, Uranium at 7.5 million and Plutonium at 10 million. Remember, you have to continue to participate in order to retain your Avatar. When you need your image updated after reaching a new milestone, please leave us a post in the "Team UBBDev Haxxor Image Updates" thread. It'll be sticky at the top of this forum here.. After confirming you've hit a new level your Avatar will be updated! Where can I get more Information?
