Ah, folding...

Are you the kind of person that needs that bit of external validation? Look no further than Folding @ Home! While you get that great feeling of beating the score of that idiot you hate, you help cure deadly diseases like cancer by letting some of your unused CPU cycles be used. (I love free advertising.) And please join the unicyclist team, CPUniCycles (#13392).

All you need to do is download a small program that was made by Stanford University (I think) and then install it. It’s free, and once you finish the work unit, you send it in. These work units give you points and the team with the most points gets to sit at the top of the score board.

On another note, I haven’t been on for a while, but I’m back. Whoo-hoo!
