Default Folding@home

Okay. I haven't looked around these forums enough to know if we have a folding team, so let me know if we do. If not, I think we should create one. It is all for a great cause, and if you don't know what folding is, go to http://folding.stanford.edu/

Another idea: If we do get this folding thing going, I think we should do something to keep people motivated to keep going ie we should get some sort of recognition in our names and possibly our rank displayed there.

Thanks for your time,
Bucket

I don't get the point of this thread or what it even has to do with these forums.
