Just wondering if anyone has had luck convincing other people or companies to use the spare processing power of their PC's for folding? How did you do it? I've told a few relatives what a great cause it is and they just don't seem to be interested. I've also sent an email to a few PR departments at companies like Google (who I thought would be interested in folding on a certain portion of their PC's, just for the good publicity it would give them) and nada...no response. This is really discouraging. The cost of running the uniprocessor client is minimal, and I think it should become something that is "cool" for companies to do. It should be one of those essential programs like Firefox that millions of PC users immediately install when they get a new machine. The awareness/enthusiasm just doesn't seem to be out there, despite the fact that so many people are directly effected by cancer and other diseases that F@H is trying to eliminate. Do you have any ideas on how we can "spread the good news" and get more people involved?
