Hi everyone,

I have been folding for TSBT for a while now but hadn't really made an effort to engage with the community before.

I took a huge break after graduating and forgot about this side of things but since the coronavirus I remembered about distributed computing and the possibility of us contributing to research that could help with that.

It's pretty cool to step back in and see the difference that modern hardware makes. It's still a pretty average computer but even having a quad core in a home desktop is way better than what I used to run on.

Hi there - pull up an air-conditioner and tell us a bit about yourself

Wow hey. I didn't realize I'd get my own subject haha. Nice to meet you all.

@scole of TSBT I'm not running folding at the moment. When I was it was set to team 10 which was Overclockers but I'll change that over if i start that again. I was using the same account name for that too.

At the moment I'm running BOINC for WCG and Rosetta on my CPU and since those don't use the graphics card I am putting that into PrimeGrid. I've also got my phone running WCG OpenPandemics aswell but the return rate on that isn't that great.

Welcome to the team Saetia.
Watch the temps on your phone. I cooked my last Google Pixel 5 crunching on it. Cooked the USB 3 port.
I've upgraded your account on the team.

Thanks @Alez

I have the phone's max battery temperature set to 40.0*c as recommended by the BOINC app. It seems fine running below this limit so far.

I'm not fussed if it does die though, it's an older model that I'm looking to upgrade anyway.
