Default I named it.... Stoanee

A short time ago, another poor sap was dragged into the world of Folding@home. It ended up being addictive. Really addictive. The type of addiction that people get help for. Everything was going great, moving up the numbers... even managing to get in the top 20 of the HWC team!

Then things turned sour. Upon looking at his stats one day, our hero realized that he was about to be passed by someone. Some cruel miscreant was gaining on him around 1000-2000 PPD per day. In a mere two weeks he would be passed! Every day was agonizing. Gaming became a thing of the past. Frantic overclocking didn't help -- the hardware just couldn't do any more. Our protagonist could only sit and wait, let nature take its course, and get taken from behind.

It didn't hurt that badly, actually.

It did however, give our protagonist drive. He scrounged, he floundered, he wept. Eventually he was able to cobble together a folding farm. Considering our protagonist was stone broke, and the evilness that had passed him was named Stoanee.... it only made sense to name the farm Stoanee.

The tables were starting to turn. The lights dimmed for a moment as the Stoanee Farm flexed its computational muscles.

Our hero had assembled the farm. Now his opponents were about to buy it.
