Not sure what you mean by a team, but welcome to the forums anyway.

Oh, the folding team?

He's more than welcome to join, doesn't need an invitation.

@OP Just head over to the folding forum: Folding @ Home if you're not sure about how to install and configure.

Potentially you could give it a good guess based on the amount of network traffic. Or if you're worried about that, you could run it on dedicated machines or a VM.

It may also be the case that your CPU cycles are being utilised for purposes other than folding.

All of this is pretty unlikely.

The best part of F@H, vs the others, is that everything comes from one source. Stanford University.

So you need to put some trust in it being from Stanford, run by a acidemically known proffessor. Stanford uses its own university owned servers to send files as well.

THEY ALSO, oops, have avaliable published journal results. So while possible we are cracking bank accounts, or helping Saxon bring down N. Korea single handedly.. Its quite unlikely.

Now dont even get started on the power usage aspect!
