idk if it works for me :/
I have a question. I have folded 5,000 points but I still don't have crown hat... Why?
I downloaded! I entered my name in the program! Jiggmin the number! And how do I get points? Because i want the crown hat!
I want to download F@H, but I aint sure if my computer will freeze to death or be as slow as a snail on drugs.
I own a HP Pavillion DV6000 with a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, around 6 gigs of memory and 772 megabytes on my D drive.
Will my laptop get killed in the fight against cancer or survive? Please respond?
I laugh at everyone who doesn't know what the "folding" process is. You silly geneticist wannabes. It occurs during mitosis/meiosis and it happens to DNA. The DNA could accidentally get a substitution or a frame shift in its code and this will cause problems when a specific gene needs to be computed. (Frame shift is probably the worst one because an entire code can be messed up rather than a single nucleotide) Alzheimer's is not something you can randomly get. It's an autosomal dominant (which means a lot of people get it) disease, which means if one of your parents passes off a dominant gene for Alzheimer's and your other parent passes a recessive gene (which means their offspring will not get Alzheimer's from that certain gene), then the offspring will still have Alzheimer's. It's one of the most difficult diseases to track because it acts upon a person in their later years.
Basically, your explanation of "folding" in DNA is rather misleading.
Before I start my rant on cancer, note that a mutation (the substitution or frame shift) will not hurt DNA, but the genes that are produced when the code is copied.
For cancer, there are several causes for it when not killed properly. First of all, your cells can program itself dead with a gene. (Yay science!) But when radiation or an improperly copied gene in meiosis/mitosis damages the entire code, your cell would have to kill itself. Cancer is both the out-of-control growth of cells because of its outrageous rate of producing the wrong code and the inability to shut down the cell's programming.

I'm very late to F@H. XD
Looks sort of like this:
However, that is not all that F@H does. It looks at many different kinds of proteins, including some of which are involved in the forming of cancer. It also looks at proteins that can cause things such as autism, Alzheimer's, and Type II diabetes.
Hey Nikc10! Can you help me and fold me? I want only 50,000 points. (20 WU) Okay? Please Nikc, You promised me! A month ago! You said your machine is broken! Please fold me 50,000 points. Thanks! I travel on vacation! 5 days

Yesterday I started using Folding@Home on my Playstation 3 system, and I'm folding for Team Jiggmin of course. I just have a single question about this. My username on Platform Racing 2 is ~Emperor~. When I wrote this name in the "Donor name" box, these symbols ~ in front of and after the name automatically became this -. So my donor got changed to -Emperor-. Will it be registered as the same name as my real username, or will it be two different donors? If so, is there a way to fix this? If not I won't get any of the points!
Hope someone can give me an answer!
Nice Thread ^^
Thx Python . I'm started adventure with F@H. I must get 5000 points ^^
But i must game with small Priority.
