??is this "appropriate " for this forum?

What has that to do with my PC then?

Do they want to use it as a processor or server or something? I don't follow!

having re read the thread starter, I fail to see the point of the thread,; there is no cure for Alzheimer's , and this thread is basically seeking to "advertise" a product at the " expense" of a crippling illness ; am somewhat surprised that it has not been "pulled" by F.E,:(

There is no product to buy, some people think that by using their PC's downtime to 'fold' proteins or pre-empt how these proteins will act is helping to find cures for these illnesses.

There are a few communities accross the net that have developed quite a healthy competition attitude to folding and discuss stats and league tables etc.

The software that you need to load doesn't agree with everyones setup, but then it is easy enough to uninstall too. Personally I've found no loss of performance or had any problems.

Here are my stats if anyone is interested click here

Kev.Ifty asks how does it work, well there are some links to flash videos click here that will explain it a lot better than I can.

then can someone explain to me the "connection" between the "folding things" and Alzheimer's; I m willing to learn about ideas etc, but still find this issue "offencive":(

you cannot cure Alzeimers ( have you lot seen people with it or cared for people with it?)...either I am "missing something "( to coin-a -phrase)) or ...
