Sorry everyone, we temporarily lost network connectivity in the building where the Foldit servers are. Things appear to be back to normal! Please feel free to let us know of any odd things you may discover as a result! (Beyond the normal oddities.)0 comments)
Bonus Science Chat, Next Week!
Curious about the science and mystery behind our most recent puzzle, 1221? Come chat with us next Monday about this, similar upcoming puzzles of this type. Attendees will no doubt get plenty of tips and hints from one of our collaborating scientist experts, but if you can't make it don't worry - we keep a log of all of our chats for reference.
The Date: 25 April 2016 (Monday)
The location: #veteran, IRC (Get help with chat here.) As a reminder, all chats are logged so you can read them later if you can't attend!
The Time: 2100-2200 (or so, but the official chat ends after an hour) UTC (aka 2200-2300 BST, 1400-1500 PDT, aka UTC-7, and 1700-1800 EDT)
The Time Zone Converter: Right this way!
Please note, we're aware many of you are having technical issues, and this chat is to address the science around the puzzle. Please continue to report any and all technical issues in the puzzle thread or Feedback section (preferably the puzzle thread), as bug reports and tech issues will be removed from this post.(Mon, 04/18/2016 - 17:42 | 0 comments)
Seattle Events this Week
Foldit's Spring Tour (this time with more Folding!) is underway this week with the following Puget Sound area events coming up:
We have not just one, but two, TWO science fair nights at local elementary schools, open to students and families of those schools to get warmed up, but on Friday and Saturday, we're going to be hanging out at the annual University of Washington College of Engineering Discovery Days. At Engineering Discovery Days, students and faculty from all UW engineering departments share their work with students, teachers, families and the community. If you're in the area, we hope you will join us for some exciting hands-on fun and learning.
Hope to see you there!(Mon, 04/18/2016 - 15:34 | 0 comments)
