3. I'm running the Folding@home process in the background this very minute

Figured I'd better practice what I preach.

I'm using a MacBook Pro with 16GB memory, and I've observed no hiccups so far. We'll see how it goes later when I'm running Logic Pro or some other CPU-intensive application!

You can choose to devote "Light, Medium, or Full" power to the Folding@home process. I'm using Medium right now, and will try it at different levels to see if there is any observable difference.

According to MacOS Activity Monitor, it's using 195.6 MB of memory on 5 threads, which is moderate.

Screen cap of the 3D visualization of my "work unit," which is currently about 64 percent complete after roughly 2 hours:


That blob of colored balls (I guess that's the protein that's being folded) rotates in a 3-dimensional field. It looks pretty cool.
