Don't feel so bad. I haven't had gainful employment for over a year. Unemployment ran out last month. Had to uproot wife and kid and move back in with my mom.

Makes it real hard to get better folding equipment when no money is coming in. For the forseeable future, I'm stuck at 3kPPD

Any expansion of the sum of human knowledge is a noble thing. As an end in it self this is really just a middle class self-righteous indulgence. It is a good use of otherwise fallow computing power. This project could provide a break thru to a cancer med that I wont be able to afford in my elder years.

Im more the type to stroke out at 50. First sentence in post though.

Enterprise, those were some uplifting things you said about us all banding together to help those who are ill. I really took your words to heart and recently got both of my PCs back to folding 24/7.

That being said, who else here can't wait to smash those arrogant bastard Mac OSX users to oblivion?
