So some of you may remember Stephanie having cancer and beating it.  Well now I have bladder cancer and have to fight it.  I am looking into starting to Fold again, have to see how much the electricity is going to cost me to do it but going to give it a shot.

Hi Scott,

Sorry to hear about your fight. It seems your family has suffered enough already.

Best wishes to a speedy remission.


I read a post over at EVGA forum, the competition thread. So here I am.


My name is Steve,

originally from Australia, but now living in Switzerland. We lived in Hong Kong for 2 1/2years before moving to Switzerland, hence my HK-Steve user name on all the forums.

My Wife's job took us from Australia to Hong Kong, then to Switzerland which we have been here for the last 12 years.

Had 2 boys born here aged 9 and 11 now.


I started folding a very long time ago when video card were agp and cpu speeds were pedestrian.

Started folding again in February 2014 again.


Currently have 3 computers GPU folding,

1. 2x GTX 770 and 1x GTX 760

2. 1x GTX770 and 1x GTX 760

3. 1x GTX 760


I know the folding we do can not help you now, but the reason I fold, is FOR people like YOU.


My family has not been touched by cancer, but if I can help others by folding, then I will fold until they disconnect my electricity and my computers can no longer fold.



That was a long keep your chin up and get well post.......


Best wishes
