    Why dont we start a Folding@Home team?

    I've been in a folding team for a little while now (I thought I would try to help out a team started by a friend of mine) but I think it would be nice to start a THG folding team. Anyone else have any thoughts on this? <A HREF="http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6752830"...

    SETI almost finished

    Check it out on their page. They're gearing up to switch over to BOINC. I'm sticking with it. Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.

    Why UD?

    I'm not sure, but I believe UD will sell your volunteered CPU time to companies. Last time I looked, they even tell you that on their website. There's other places that resources can go to.
