Greetings!!

I have a wish-list of sorts - but a Cafe post may be more appropriate.

Could someone please make a list of the Different
"Fight Malaria" websites? A historical perspective would be helpful.
Yes, I can embrace change. I'm also interested in the history of the sites....

Fight Malaria @ Home
Fight TB @ Home
Find @ Home (Started March 2014?) (FIND == Find Neglected Diseases)

Thanks, Jay

The first project was FightMalaria@Home.

But Ant decided to create a new project for Neglected Diseases, FiND@Home. Why just Malaria when we can work on TB or Ebola.

I came here to create the new project, from scratch. We kept the database and I tried to be transparent for FM@H users. Now FM@H is an alias of FiND@H.

TB@H is a subproject, but it's running on the same server. In fact, your are currently working both on TB and Malaria.

Thanks for the reply - especially the alias part.

Behind http://boinc.ucd.ie/ you have the same ip and website than http://findah.ucd.ie/, but not the same server :). It's a DNS alias.
