I'll join if ben gives you the go head. My Compaq Presario's AMD Althon 64 processor is going to waste by doing nothing productive. Besides my grampa has cancer(my moms dad). And cancer runs on my dads side of the family. I have no grandparents on my dad's side due to cancer :( .

Install the program and while your computer is at idle it crunches numbers.

I'm in, even if its just my Athlon 2100+ (get a network card for my Thinkpad and put that 300MHz PII to work, too).

I KNEW a dual-core processor would come in handy! :lol: Yeah, I'm all in if we do this. My family members have cancer, some have died from it, and a few of my friends are survivors, so I'll help however I can.

I don't get it... Our computers are going to find a cure for cancer? I'm rather skeptical of the idea... :?

What exactly does it do? Just a bunch of math equations? And if this is supposed to work, why hasn't all the money that is donated to cancer research been spent on buying a ton of powerful computers to do the number crunching? Can anybody give me some more information as to what this is? Don't get me wrong - I'm all for putting our time to such a worthy cause like finding a cure for cancer, but it just seems a bit far-fetched as to it actually working...

It is because the more computers doing it, the better. I don't know if I want to though because I need more memory. :(

Technically now, the idle process consumes less power then the folding@home process, thus by running it, you are, in fact, wasting more power than you are saving by running something while your computer is idle. Couple that with the fact that folding at home is just studying protein folding, nothing particularly related to a cancer cure, and you're just wasting electricity. If your computer's idle a lot, it stands to reason that it would be much more energy-efficient to turn it off. Then, with the money you now save on electricity, you can donate to cancer research and make a greater difference than you would doing this folding@home process
Shhh! I'm not officially back yet.
