    I'm actually hoping to win! Then, some lucky TPU member will get to buy it at a major discount and ALL funds from the sale will go to the donation fund. :D

    If you're not yet folding for Stephanie, please consider at least folding a few units for her this month. I have split my folding between Stephanie and TPU. It is a GREAT way to show a beautiful young lady who is only 13 and has a very bad medical condition that people from around the globe know who she is and we CARE. It's also an excellent way to show other tech sites that TPU is a caring community on the interwebz. Please see the OP's 1st post and get started if you can. Thanks. :)

    Folding humor if you will. :)

    Regarding folding for Stephanie, I counted over 100 people with the -Stephanie on Bjorn's team page. That does the heart good to see. :D

    My video card is barely too old to be supported by the folding@home GPU client. XD.

    It supports X19K and up.

    I'm at 91% with my CPU, though
