Our focus for DM this time around is helping people fight cancer.

As everyone knows, cancer sucks. We're going to fight back this year through a variety of means that hopefully everyone can contribute to.

  • https://www.rmhc.org/ Ronald McDonald house is something the tower has supported for -years-. We're continuing that support this year. Houses are all over North America and Europe (and some South America, Australia, Japan) so it's not just an America centric organization. As a huge bonus, they're also very highly rated https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=4409
  • https://foldingathome.org/home/ Folding at home uses your idle computer time to study protein folding and interactions. I'm not nearly smart enough or sciency enough to know what that means, but the low down is you win internet points for spending electricity on researching cancer, covid, alzheimers, huntingtons, parkinsons, etc.

This is the short list, and fighting cancer means a lot to DM this year, and we hope you'll join us. Next post will be a short how to on how to start up folding at home. Works best on a newer computer, especially a gaming computer. Works on windows, mac, and linux. Please don't do it if you have an old ass laptop. You will make it overheat.
