Since there seems to be a lot of pc literate folks here, I thought we might combine our computer efforts in a worthy project,

Our goal: to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases .

This program will function much like a screen saver would, not interfering with your daily work but running when the sytem is idle. http://folding.stanford.edu/download.html

There is a way to contribute as a team, haven't figured that part out yet.

if anyone decides to try this, enter

TEAM NUMBER: 54076

when it asks you during the install. This wil allow us to crunch numbers under the team of "Canadian Content". There is all sorts of daily/weekly/monthly rankings.

Go Team !

I can (try to) help on the chemistry side of things as well. Computers are not my area of expertise.

It's best to have a well rounded team in my opinion? You and Herman can be head "scientists"

Cool. I like the sound of that.
