    Default Fight Cancer With Our PC's

    So today on YouTube I was watching a video on using your computers processing power while your sleeping to help fight various diseases. It uses a software from Stanford University to simulate protein folding. I thought it would be cool to have AOD team up to help fight Cancer, Parkinsons, etc. This is very close to me because I lost my grandma after she had 14 year battle with cancer, also my grandpa has a serious case of Parkinsons. Also, you can set it up to only run while your idle, so if you can spare a few dollars on your power bill and an extra few degrees in your room it would be great.

    You can download it/find more info here: http://folding.stanford.edu/

    Our team # is: 231357
    Make Sure to use your AOD Name

    I'm doing it. this seems like a great cause it's close to me as well my grandmother got lung cancer after smoking for years she beat the cancer but was on oxygen for the rest of her life and eventually died not to sure of what some complication of something that is also the reason why I never have or will ever smoke is because I don't want t end up like her. Also my grandfather got Alzheimer's which was tough to watch him not remember me or my dad he eventually died from it. So I will run this progam all the time in hopes we can find a cure to these diseases

    A. I'm definitely gonna get it working. My Nona and Grandpa both passed away from lung cancer when I was much younger. Shit sucks. If you're reading this, seriously, help however you can.
    B. This guy is great! Gotta watch a few more of his videos.

    Thanks Starz!

    Cheers,
