Why the hell don't more people sign up for this SIMPLE distributed program. They are looking at curing Altzheimer's - the leading cause of dementia - and we all are susceptible!! Nevermind they are working on cancer, huntington's disease, etc

Get on the stick, once the program is installed you do NOTHING, except help! Charity without any effort!!

sign up now!!

The best thing about F@H is that you don't have anything to do, once set up it does it all! If you use your CPU, then the program turns itself down so that you don't see any change in your computer, except with the most intensive games, etc, then pause it - a simple right click on the red nut in the tray at bottom of screen.

If there is a new version of something, it will be announced on soup. A set and forget program - that helps the world!!

Well, I'm unconvinced. And I don't think I'm all the entirely motivated to bother anyway.
