    Guys-base your design on a Jade Monkey (which is the price BTW for this challenge). A little search on Mr. Google's search site netted me this nice image:

    I never got to the point to understand what the god sake FOLDING was. Too long to read and understand for a folding newbie like me and those who are tripping doing it are not able to explain it properly in simple words. When I asked them what FOLDING was the answers looked like if I asked them algebra formulas while their about to get an orgasm. So much jerking off on FOLDING they cant even think and write properly about it.

    LOL - Folding is simply this - when your computer is sitting neglected the folding program will use the CPU and the GPU to process data sent to it from a server and then send the results back to the server - much like a botnet, but instead of attacking gmail or stealing credit card numbers the machines that are 'folding' are doing things like helping with cancer research.

    It's much like one person using the idle machines on a network to speed up the rendering of a 3D CAD model.

    As to the Chimp Challenge, I will check it out - it's been a while since I've abused Photoshop.

    It can fold even while you are using it for simple things like listening to music and surfin the net too - I don't fold (yes, shame on me) but the aspects are amazing - all those PCs out there folding away could totally pwn a super computer in sheer number crunching power.

    folding PCs at work compared to a super computer > :nutkick:

    The best way for me to show you a my primitive photoshop skills was to upload it as my avatar. I don't know what username will be selected so I just picked one out of a hat.

    I started with this...
    [​IMG]

    After looking at it I'd guess the text needs to be larger.

    The avatar you see is my second attempt.

    EDIT: DAMMIT BUCK! You realize that my first picture has a troll face on it? Here is the non-troll version.
