I like to give my idle computers something to do.

I leave my rigs on 24/7 simply for ease of use.It might as well be doing something.

For me it is like the extension of O/C with the bomus of giving time to a reaserch. I mean O/Cing is fun, pushing the hardware to the max and all, but then, what is the best way to use it ? Folding to help reasercher. :)

It is also, a reason to buy bigger/better hardware.

Ive been on the World Community Grid for a while now. I had the misfortune of knwowing someone who had HIV. Live in Vancouver long enough, you will meet someone. I was curious. So, I started to volunteer once in a while in St,Pauls delivering meals. After a while, I witnesses some really sick people die of it. You can splice hairs, which way is more terribble, or which cause needs more attention. They all do. I think I was really deeply affected by it. Especially from the girls. When I started to see girls getting it, I kept my undies duct taped around my waist. So, sometimes when I go back to work in the mines, I run 4 instances of WCG fight aids at home for as long as im gone. And thats sometimes 45 days straight. I set my cpu to 100% and let it do its work.

I fold because it helps a great cause.

My dad survived cancer.

Also, my hardware is overkill, so I might as well put it to good use.
