Rather than you Google to get the same answer, I think I'll just ask everyone here. What is folding, and why do you do it?

It's a good way of getting your money's worth out of your computer. There are other distrubuted computing programs, but hey, you paid all that money for the computer, why not make it useful and help out research for a good cause

Hmm I suppose once I get all three machines in order I'll fold for whatever team you want me to.
