Re: Folding @ home gives Stanford and Sony ability to spy?

Notice how we can already spy on each other by looking at our individual yellow dots on the F@H map.  Notice the singular PS3s isolated from any form of technological existence, such as the single PS3 in South Africa...lmao



PSN: AuDioFreaK39, PWNT, Kill, MGS_Fan, ROFL, THUGLIFE, LMAO, ShadowReaper

I say: If Sony and/or Stanford are looking for dirty pics on your PS3, then put some there and give 'em a cheap thrill!

I'm pretty sure the application only is connected when it downloads a new WU, and they when you go to upload the data.  Pretty sure all the work is done offline, but who knows, maybe I'm wrong.

Yup. You can be offline to process the WU.  You only need an internet connection when uploading or downloading a WU
