My System Specs

I'm glad that I was folding before the contest took place. I'm certainly not judging anyone by any means but I have a bit of pride for the fact that I was already doing it for a good cause..... the contest is just *really* cool on top of that

Now to be totally honest, I became both a member and a folder because I was so intrigued about the IC7 TIM compound.

In my defense I was already cracking keys for distributed.net for about 7 years. I personally thought that SETI was kinda dumb and had never heard (how is it possible I wonder now) of folding@home. The moment I read about it I began turning off my distributed clients and loading up folding instead.

Personally, I think I have more to gain from using my machines to learn about proteins than I do encryption strengths
