    I was wondering if it would be ok to create a Folding @ home team called "Tennis Warehouse. I'm sure most of you know what Folding @ home does. Its basically a distributed computing project with people all around the world participating. What happens is people download the FAH program from Standford University and it uses spare cpu cycles to calculate how proteins in our bodies fold. Cures for diseases will be found through this. For more info go to the Stanford site for folding:
    http://folding.stanford.edu/

    It will put TW's name out there and for a good cause. I currently on a team but will switch if TW allows this. Its a great way to help and compete at the same time. Teams usually brag about their rankings (how many units of work their computers send in). So please TW, respond and let us know if its ok. Thanks

    Eug, although we admire and support this type of research, we can't allow our company name to be used by someone outside of Tennis Warehouse. Thanks for checking and good luck! Don/Tennis Warehouse

    No prob Don, but it really wont be used for me personally. Points accumulate from each user for that team. But I understand never the less. Thanks for replying.
