    Thanks Scott, the support of the Hexus editorial team in publicising the cause is very welcome. And whilst the competitive edge that point-gathering gives to folding is massive fun, the real winner from the project is medical science.

    It's well worth remembering that even if, like me, you're not able to churn out massive points, every single protein folded is an important step towards understanding and treating a wide range of diseases caused by protein malfunction. You don't have to fold 24/7 on an i7 980X to make a difference! So I'd urge every hexite who has an HTPC sitting practically idle; a laptop that's used largely for web surfing; or a beast of a gaming machine that occasionally gets used for word processing to stick a folding client on their machine and use those spare CPU and GPU cycles to aid medical science!

    Front page news. Zing!

    Edit: Now, about those pink names...
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Same as scaryjim, I don't throw everything at Folding@Home, I only run the SMP client whilst I am working so I may get a few units a week done.
