The true reason for Folding
I used to always leave my computer on over night just to have my IM away message up so that I would catch any messages people tried to send me. But of course, it never happened, and I would feal guilty for wasing all that power it took to run my computer while doing absolutely nothing with it.
But, with Folding@Home, not only do I feel great knowing that my cycles are helping valuable research, I can leave my computer on guilt free, knowing that my power consumption is for the greater good.
Thanks Folding, for enabling my internet addiction!
