    I was reading another thread that mentioned the Folding@home project so I decided to look into a bit, basically its a small program you can run to help donate some of your computer resources to those studying protein folding patterns in diseases like cancer, alzhimer's, parkinsons and ALS.

    It's something worth taking a look at. I took a moment to set up a BHW team (team #214962)

    If you download the client enter the team number and let's work together to help better understand and hopefully fight against these horrible ailments.

    On a serious note:

    I run this program since they released it on all 5 of my computers/laptops. Really everyone should use it.
