@MartinZ, just asking for minor clarification on the instructions for joining the Avast Team found at the bottom of the hxxps://www.avast.com/folding_at_home page. Item #4 includes ". . .(leave the passkey empty) but when I read the folding@home Install Guide for Windows, the use of a passkey is encouraged as in "Always use a Passkey". Would the use of a passkey prohibit being part of the Avast Team??
Thanks

Yes we decided not to use the passkey, not to complicate it.

Everyone rushing to grind for Folding@home and the only one that decided for Rosetta@home was Protonmail... The ONLY one.
