Sorry if the question seems stupid. I can't seem to find the answer anywhere!

There you go. I asked the same question a while back.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

if you live in a climate where you need heating then your computer is really a heater saving on your boiler etc and does the science for free.

Hey, that sounds kinda cool. Is this some exclusive club, or is anyone free to join? I've got 4 cores here that I don't use all the time which I wouldn't mind donating to science.

How would one go about getting started?
