Maniacs are fractal artist by choice, but we are also regular people with jobs, family and other interest outside of our love of fractals. Here we can gather together on a variety of projects, help others and make a difference in the lives of people in need!
Our First Community Project
Scientists at Stanford University and around the world utilize your donated computer time to better understand and develop cures for some of humanity’s worst diseases. Simply by running Folding@home software you are aiding research for Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and many cancers.
People like you, from all over the globe, currently donate the unused power of over a quarter of a million computers, forming the world’s most powerful distributed super-computer.
I just set up a Team for us called Maniacs Making a Difference! When you log in use team id # 232223 so our progress can be tracked. The software is available for windows, mac as well as several different linux platforms!
