Cash Gopher = myLot's folding@home?

I have already read somewhere that Cash Gopher uses your computer when it is idle to work some tasks (not sure what kind). Wouldn't that be similar to folding@home, a programm from Stanford University which uses you computer's processing power when it is idle to solve some difficult problems about proteins? Here is their homepage: http://folding.stanford.edu/ You can help scientists studying these diseases by simply running a piece of software. Is Cash Gopher doing a different spin on the same idea?

Hi Houndolon, Its a good piece of infomation, just out of curiosity will that site slowdown the computer and reduce the speed? As when we will run a software it will chage the default setting and use the space of the computer? thank you for the site given. enjoy mylotting

well, it won't affect the computer's performance at all, because you are running that software while your computer is idle which means you aren't using it. it's useful if you are waiting for something on the internet or downloading something large which isn't very demanding for the processing power of you computer.

That sounds amazing, i find that hard to beleave that they could use your computer from a distance to solve problems.I really hope it pays good as i really could use the cash for college.I mean if that was what it was would it pay for every hour that it was connected to the server and used your computer.Also i wonder if it would pay ,more if you had a faster compuer.
