TechIMO ClimatePrediction.net Team Info
ClimatepPrediction.net is the largest experiment to try and produce a forecast of the climate in the 21st century. To do this, we need people around the world to give us time on their computers - time when they have their computers switched on, but are not using them to their full capacity. Climate change, and our response to it, are issues of global importance, affecting food production, water resources, ecosystems, energy demand, insurance costs and much else. There is a broad scientific consensus that the Earth will probably warm over the coming century; ClimatePrediction.net should, for the first time, tell us what is most likely to happen.
If you would like to take part, new TechIMO team members please create an account and follow the instructions. Existing project members can join the TechIMO team through this link.

So far its not exactly easy to setup... at least for me...

its not that hard. Heck i figured it out.
You start by creating an account with the first project of your choice, then you download BOINC. Then restart your computer for good measure. after that it will start and ask for the url for climate prediction (http://climateprediction.net/) click enter. fill in your user name and password.
Thats the tricky part. What password?
Go back to the climate prediction site and use your key from your E-Mail and set a password.

Not leaving FAD... I think that finding cures to diseases that we loose so many people to currently will aid us more in the future than a climate prediction.
Sounds like an interesting experiment, though... I'd like to hear more about it sometime.
And, somehow, I missed the bit of info about FAD ending on 12/16/05... However, now, I have been informed.
So, I may go off and do this when that happens...

Phenious, you are not alone. I just had problems with ClimatePrediction too!
But that's not what I'm here for. Has anybody managed to change the Resource Share to something other than the default (100).
Fwiw I suspect one cannot have it lower than 100, but I'm trying to up it.

Would that not happen when you have more than one project running on boinc?

At the Rosetta server(s) are down for a 2-hour maintenance period, and Predictor is off-line. I'm trying to open a second account at ClimatePrediction and have been waiting for 30 minutes for an e-mail with the account code.
This is fun!!!
