Upcoming Maintenance & Seattle Times Article!
Heads up! Our next server maintenance is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24. We're going to do it at 0900-1000 Pacific time again, although you probably should add a couple minutes in either direction just to be on the safe side for your work. (Convert to your timezone.) IRC should be up while this maintenance is taking place, so you can stop by there for any updates.
In other news, we're in the news again for our work with the Baker Lab regarding Ebola. Keep up the great work, folders!(Fri, 09/19/2014 - 16:52 | 0 comments)
Welcome to fall!
The seasons are set to change and we're gearing up for an exciting fall here at Foldit, including participating in some local events like the Pacific Science Center's Life Sciences Research Weekend, and our scientist chat coming up in mid-October.
New to Foldit? We have lots of resources available. Feel free to ask one of our friendly community members if you get stuck on a puzzle. Are you a teacher looking to get your class up and going? Click here!
And finally, in case you missed it, we've been in the news a number of places recently. Check just one recent news report!(Sun, 09/14/2014 - 15:30 | 0 comments)
Server Maintenance Heads Up
Just a small advisory - we will be doing some maintenance tomorrow morning (September 10) that may or may not cause some brief outages of 5-10 minutes in length. While we expect the interruptions to your folding time to be completely minimal (and possibly not even noticeable), we would rather let you know that we're doing some server maintenance in the event that our outages go longer than expected, or take us down darker paths than we're currently forecasting. Naturally, please feel free to stay tuned to IRC or our local social media outlets for any further updates as needed tomorrow.
Thanks!(Tue, 09/09/2014 - 20:40 | 1 comment)
