    Nice, a wiseguy calling out the "irony" and looking like a champ in the process ... as if you had anything to contribute. it's not worth replying to these posts - I'm not even sure if I should address the misconceptions or not. The post was more so for a mod to pop up and clean this thread up as it already went to hell.

    Oh, nevermind, more garbage.

    Come on... this trend became the most trolling in guru3d

    So you blame scientist but praise chip engineers... funny and worrying at the same time.

    Still not sure what you're on about.... The idea of this going to shite is an opinion you came with and brought nothing else to the table, so yeah... do whatever for whatever reason.

    Become a Mod I guess if this is something you're interested in.

    That's funny, just set this up on Saturday and had it running the last couple of days. Interesting point about GPU thought... been running it on my CPU so might switch and see if its beneficial.

    waste of processing power. the disease is more about politics than anything else. even if a cure was found using this project, which is unlikely, it will go unused. have fun kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

    Guys, if you have no interest in contributing to Folding@Home or any other distributed computing project, stay out of related threads. Trolling these threads doesn't make you appear any more intelligent. It actually makes you look ignorant.....

    The Folding@Home project is run by Stanford University. Not some corporation. No corporation has direct access to Folding@Home or the data returned by users. The data is evaluated by Pande Labs, which is part of Stanford University Medical School, research papers are then drafted and published by members of Pande Labs.

    SETI@Home is and has always been a waste of time and money. Since it's inception, SETI has accomplished nothing of real value. They have yet to actually find "extra-terrestrial intelligence"....which is the sole purpose of SETI....to search for "extra-terrestrial intelligence".... It's been 60+ years of failure....

    all research is based "intention" to find answer

    now people that saying "it's waste of processing power" ... if u have that mindset

    so in our life, i bet most of us, trying to get comfortable life, ie. being rich etc.
    but whether we can achieve that or not, no one know
    u might can try hard, give everything in ur life but give u nothing in return, everyday like living in hell
    but most of time, u get something in return, probably not what u expecting, such experience
    which then give progress to achieve what u after, even without u realizing it

    but now ur if mindset, "we waste energy to try to be rich ... we wont be rich even try our best"
    so its urself that decide to be poor, good luck in ur life with that mindset

    also one thing i want to ask
    now u say "it's waste of processing power" .... then do u have better idea to contribute ? what u already contribute to humanity/this-world so far?

    You claim you're not here to troll, but that's literally all you're doing..... If you don't want to help, that's fine. You don't have to act like a douchebag....

    If you had no interest in helping, there was absolutely zero reason for you to post in this thread to begin with. Only trolls post in threads that don't concern them.
