Tech Kings has made an official Foldings@Home team!  Folding@Home is a distributed computing project put on by researchers at Stanford University. Enthusiasts like yourself can donate their GPU or CPU processing power when they aren't utilizing that power.  The researchers at Stanford are using this processing power to better understand how proteins are folded and why they sometimes get misfolded.

Misfolded proteins are to blame for many diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.  If you are interested in helping you can download the program here http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download.  The F@H program is available on nearly every Operating System and for both NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards.  Once you get the program installed don't forget to join the Tech Kings team! Our F@H team ID number is 193852.  You can also find our team and info here http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampage&teamnum=193852.
