Team name: RedandWhiteKop

Any client program can contribute to the statistics for this team by putting the number 209534 in the team field in the client.

My username on there is DanFromMars.  Only just started but would be good if more members joined and we got some momentum.

Happy folding :wave

What is it?
"The club was great, the people were great and the people from Liverpool - the text messages, the phone calls, the emails, all the tweets I had on my Twitter account - it's unbelievable how much respect they showed me and it's also a bit emotional" - Dirk Kuyt

Medical research application that runs in the background using your cpu or/and gpu's spare cycles to simulate protein folding.  It's also a good tool for overclockers to check if your system is stable. might as well run this for 6+ hours and do some good, rather than useless prime95 etc.

Got it running on my cpu and gpu and Ps3 and my sister's pc all under anonymous. Was just wondering if many rawk users used it and had a team, since you get points for how much you contribute and can join a team.

Seems to be a game version of folding. Much better way to do it than the crappy screen saver idea (I'm assuming it's the same thing really :P)
