I ran the precursor to Folding@Home, SETI@Home, for a number of years. I was excited to see that Folding@Home today passed a milestone and is continuing on strong. One of the comments on Digg though was just to good not to share.
I ran F@H nearly 24/7 on my Pentium 4 for 3.5 years. After I got my ps3 and F@H, I left it on 24/7 and it overtook my P4’s stats in 3.5 weeks. Shamed and insecure about its chiphood, my P4 Desktop ran out and bought a Hummer H2, a really big gun, and started stuffing tubesocks into its heatsink.
