    I can't let heat claim all my spare clocks. That's just wasteful. :D

    I feel for you. My father in law is dying of lung and pacreatic cancer, and it's projected that he has less than 3 months to live. Cancer is such a horrible disease. Stay strong man.

    My friends mum is dying from cancer, I can really see a big difference in him, he always looks depressed. It's for reasons like this that we fold and crunch, to cure this cursed disease cancer.

    Guys dont mean to sound like a newb but what do you need to start crunching, how good of a machine does it take Ive got a lot of extra parts lying around I could probably throw something together. Is this something I could just set it and forget it Id would probably just let it run 24/7.

    Nick,
    I will pray for your family. This is horrible news and I cannot even imagine what it must feel like. My dad means the world to me and it brings me to tears to hear this. If there is anything that I can do please PM me~

    Just found out my great aunt has thyroid cancer, and there's some crap starting around her heart. She's old, either in her 80's or 90's. I'm pretty sure this is going to be the cause of her death. :shadedshu
