Why AREN'T you folding? There is NO possible way of anything bad happening to your computer by folding. Go download it anyway, screw your dad.

It's very likley it's his own pc, and that he is reading this thread now. if your going to appear as someone who says "screw my dad", then the trust barrierr breaks.

It's still the dad's choice, until he says so. Ages ago, when i was younger, i wasn't allowed to bring floppy disks from school home with games on it until he had checked it.

When you fold you are getting data directly from Stanford's servers. Your computer then does some number crunching and uploads the results back to Stanford's servers. It's completely safe.

Thanks for all of the input everyone! I showed him this and he's a little more convinced now, maybe all thats left is for me to catch him in a good mood and ask him

Thanks again and Rep+ All

Hopefully he doesn't see the post that was being rude. Hope he allows you to fold, folding is for a good cause.
