If you guys don't know Folding @ Home is project by Stanford University to help find cures for diseases. What happens is the user downloads the program from the folding website(see the bottom for links). The program asks for ur username and team #. It then downloads an object called a Work Unit. This is the data for a protein strand. The client program uses the unused processor power (which means it doesnt infringe on ur programs...it only uses the unused processor speed) to analyze the protein. The resulting analysis is sent back to Stanford.
This Helps in 2 major ways:
Helps find cures for disease
AND saves Stanford the money of buying millions of dollars worth of computers.
