Default Do you fold?

I just wanted to see how many of you are part of Team Rage 3d.
If you don't know what folding is, click this piece of writing to find out. Also, click here for general info on folding and Team Rage3d.
If the answer is no, then I have to ask: what is wrong with you?

-Did your penis get mangled in an ugly accident involving farm equiptment, and now you're angry at the world?

-Are you an albino quadripalegic, and as such unable to click sufficiently to d/l the [email protected] client, or go into the sun to ask someone for help?

-Are you and your family crawling through the desert, only speaking to one another to inquire about where you will find more water, and thusly unable to communicate how folding will help humanity?

-Have you been exposed to the most dangerous of all elements: douchebagium and have, as a result, contracted its awful disease?

-Do you feel that you need to save up on your spare CPU cycles, and store them in plastic baggies for a 'rainy day'?

-Do you feel that the only thing that brings you joy is the pain and suffering of others?

-Are you member of the powerful Washington Alzheimers lobbyist group that relies on the millions in kickbacks and slush funds that awful diseases bring you and your fatcat clients?

-Are you gay?

-Do you think that folding is 'women's work'?

-Are you afraid that if you do many good deeds you will get to go to heaven, and won't be able to hang out with Ty Cobb?

-Did you go through a rehabilitation program designed to cure your ultraviolence, during which your eyelids were held open and you were forced to watch video of computers folding?

-Do you cry yourself to sleep at night knowing that a folder is banging the chick you bought all those drinks at the bar, but refuse to 'play his game'?

-Have you heard that folding causes such afflictions as premature ejaculation? (This is NOT true! Source: American Journal of Medicine and Ejaculation)

-Are you worried that the computers will take their new knowledge and use it to breed a race of cyborgs, superior to man in every way, which will eventually take over the world in a bloody and long coup of untold violence? (This may happen, but still...)

-Are you unaware that folding is an approved substitute for mother's milk?

-Did your wife cheat on you with a man whose "WU output" was abnormally high?

-Have folders become so God-like that the whole thing intimidates you?

Well, none of these are good excuses! If you haven't already, go to the Folding section of the forum right now and start helping Team Rage3d and humanity in general by becoming a Folder!!!

PS: You get an avatar.

Hmm ... Well, I guess I'll take the bait.

I don't fold. There are reasons why I don't - I used to, but not anymore. The main reason is that my new rig is about as big as a shoebox, and is running a lot of really hot hardware: Pentium 4 2.53GHz, 512MB Corsair DDR333 RAM, a Geforce4 Ti4200 (until I get my 9700Pro next week, which is even hotter, of course), and an 80GB Seagate Barracuda. All of this is cooled by a single 80mm variable speed fan. It speeds up when system runs hot, which is fine - it only runs hot when I'm gaming. Of course, when I'm gaming I've got my headphones on or my speakers up LOUD, so I can't hear the fan anyway. Now, if I fold, my CPU will be at 100% usage all of the time, which means the fan will always be running fast, and fast = loud. As the japanese says, yada!

In other words, it ain't gonna happen ...

Yeah Heck, give something back to Rage3d and put those cycles to good use, even if you fold for the enemy (United_We_Rage)...

PS: If you ask nicely you could probably fold for us Raging_Canucks, even though you're not technically Canadian.

Well it will run the same whether you are surfing or playing games, it is an idle process so it will only work with what you are not useing. The only difference would be that you would run at 100% load when idle. If you are running xp you can set it up to run as a scheduled task and you will not even see the program running. Easy as pie.
