Folding is an addiction. I have been folding proteins for 2 years now for the distributing folding client.
It feels good to climb the ranks while you know you helping better mankinds future.

Meh, I'm all for finding a cure, but I think there are other ways.

Donating money to the American Cancer Association or whatever it is... It's better that they test the new anti-cancer meds on things rather than just look at what actually causes it. People are dying *now*, and by the time F@H gets used effectively with protein folding, it'll be too late. Make the experimental drugs and shoot them up.

that's the beauty of F@H, this costs you nothing. Definitly, donations keep the real heavy research going but you can do this at the same time.

The beauty of Folding@Home is it uses your spare cycles. My home computer runs 24/7 anyway. It might as well be folding instead of sitting there waiting for me to use it.

You can say the same thing about donating money to the American Cancer Society.
Show me where that money has actually done some good for mankind and I will give more.

All the folding projects I have been apart of are run through Universities of Science.
This thread was not ment to bash anyones way of contributing but, to give thanks.
I am very thankful to help as much as I can.

BTW......all my monetary contributions go for St Jude...........To me it is all about the KIDS.
