PreservedSwine is still being judged by the masses


Default I fold

To put a hopefull ending to these kinds of threads



Not sure if it's appropriate ...
But this is the reason I'm here...

The competition is fun, but underneath, there is a purpose and a goal...

Reading that thread, right here on R3D, really brought that home.....

My grandfather has had alzheimers for 15 years now, and he's at the point where he can no longer do anything (walk, talk, feed himself, etc), so i have a "reason" to be doing this too. The competition aspect is good though, and it drives people to help out more And hopefully one day noone will have to deal with these horrible diseases

Out of all the distributed computing projects, this one just seems like it has the best chance of actually helping humankind. Looking for intelligent aliens isn't going to help us (SETI), they'd probably be extinct by the time we got the radio waves anyway.

I can think of nothing more appropriate PreservedSwine.

I began to Fold not long after my just-turned-12 yr old niece died of leukemia. Here's to playing a small part in making cancer and these other misfolding related diseases a distant memory.

This is one of the main reasons why I fold.

But in the end I like to see the challenges. Just means cures can be made faster!
