Please do your very best to not ask this question after you read this thread. It annoys a lot of the members here, but I will tell you why it annoys us. So, please take the time to read through carefully and take it in fully.
- If you CAN fold and just can't be bothered or want to speed up things because your computer is slow - this is what annoys us the most. People who are just lazy and want someone else to do their work.
- Most members are stuck up with their own folding - a lot of people here are still folding may that be going for prizes or just folding because they genuinely want to help cure cancer. Remember, this is the main aim of F@H to cure cancer, not for prizes so please do keep that in mind, Jiggmin only used the prizes to his and cancers advantage and mind you, it's come out fantastically well.
Don't worry about how slow you fold, even I have a pretty slow computer and I only usually get a WU done every 2-3 days. It's nothing to be annoyed of but I kept folding for myself, I kept going towards the prizes I wanted. So should you, never mind how long it will take, you will get there.
The members here are willing to help people with problems they have (we also have two people from the actual Folding@Home Support Team here) so please please use to full advantage. Don't be afraid to ask us questions, we will help you out with pleasure but please do not ask us to fold for you. This is not what we are here for.
Here is another persons opinion:
"Folding is a long and tedious journey to the person who folds. They spend months upon end folding giant Work Units, which give little outcome. Especially if you can fold, how can you just expect someone to do so much computer labour for you, just because your lazy? Even if you can't fold, its like asking for clothes off of a beggar." - Red Jackdaw
Now that you understand this, please don't ask us "Can you fold for me?" or anything along those lines.
