    I turn it on when I go to sleep. When I wake up I set the auto shut down to "finish current work." Then I head off for work.

    I keep it turned off.

    1. It wastes electricity.
    2. I don't get any download credits from Easynews.com like I do by donating my PC CPU time to Grid.org.

    I do not and will not waste MY bandwidth and resources to benefit someone else if I'm not getting any kind immediate compensation for doing so.

    Seems such a waste of power, considering how much electricity is used by the PS3.

    Apparently helping cure diseases isn't a top priority.

    Commit suicide. Please do this favor for the human race.

    I use it on my PC - I have an older X1950XT, which supports the GPU client, and run it most of the day.

    is that just a normal PC box or did you have to modify it? Cause I was thinking of making one instead of using the PS3

    Just a normal PC, but the newer procs easily out-perform my old graphics card

    What's the point? I seriously doubt me playing some D-list game is going to help me cure cancer, at all. It's just there to be there.

    Do you think they'll notify you if they figure out anything? Do you think they will even thank you for your help? Do you think it will save you a dime on your medical bill? It won't.

    I DO know that it is supposedly for curing diseases. How many cures have been found using this method thus far?

    Help cure diseases (supposedly), meanwhile suggest suicide. Brilliant. We have ourselves an obvious genius here folks.

    Everything makes perfect sense why you have such an obscure view. You live in Ohio.

    I swear you better be at least 13yrs old with that kind of attitude. But if you're over 18yrs with this retarded "me me me oh gawd WTF have you done for ME lately" attitude. You need to stop, re-evaluate yourself as a person.

    Now give me your address so I can send you a desert eagle.

    Do you have some kind of amnesia that makes you experience events in reverse order? Not that you have enough culture to get that reference....
