Any Freepers "folding@home"????
For those not familiar with F@H -> some diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer and even "mad cow" disease are believed to be linked to protein (mis)folding. A scientist team from Stanford University studies this phenomenon to try and find a cure to these diseases. To do this, they have designed a software (folding@home) which enables people to donate unused power from their computer to speed up medical research!
Proud member of the "Folding Frogs" team #734, here!
If an all Freeper team were to form I'd jump ship for that...
can someone ping the tech ping list?

I'm so cornfused!
Let's see how the Mighty Mac handles it.
The first WU may take a few hours to complete.
FreeRepublic should have a team in the Top50 as we have a huge and active community here.
Too bad we can't bring our previous work with us.....
there is already a freerepublic team, I don't know if it is active, I've been part of it for so long I no longer have PC I signed up with.

Discussion continued on the following thread >
Hey, I just started doing this. I usually just leave my system on since it is so slow to boot up. However, just installed some new software and need to reboot. Do I need to restart folding or will it restart by itself?
