Even if you never get this terrible disease it's going to cost you and your country big bucks to deal with it.

Some have said folding helps the Rx companies make money. In this particular case pray that they are major league successful, because the alternative is far more expensive.

I'd do it, but I share responsibility for paying my electricity bills...

If I ever get a job as a network admin, I'll consider it!

Hello,

If your computer is on all the time, then the difference between Folding and not Folding is probably 40-50 watts? And, if it only Folds while you have it on -- that's fine, too!

I just wish I could build a new machine for folding. Right now my laptop can only turn out <100 ppd.

I'm in that situation as well, I gave my roommate some equipment in exchange for my pc and his pc folding all the time.

Make a sales pitch, my roommate liked the idea, at least in the winter, when the extra heat is an added bonus. 8)
