@vic
Sorry, unless you have permission to install a screensaver on the computer with internet access, you can't do it.

@chico
No, you just need a computer with internet access, and the owner's permission to use it of course.

You simply install a screensaver type software and it does calculations when you're not using the computer. It then sends the calculation results back to the server.

I used to do this, but my folding program has stopped working, all I get now is a white screen?

Interesting! I wonder how that was coded :)

I like programing and i created a small application you can use to keep notes http://www.sunnynotes.com. It is FREE for this period and I use it to keep my notes.

I would interested if anyone else around here has some programming skils we can use for the http://folding.stanford.edu/ project.

Thanks

هستند — یا به عبارتی "ماشینهای ریز". قبل از اینکه پروتئین ها اعمال بیوشیمیایی خود را انجام دهند، باید خود را سرهم نموده و یا دچار "تاخوردگی" شوند. با وجود نقش اصلی و اساسی در زیست شناسی، روند تاخوردگی پروتئین ها به صورت یک راز باقی مانده است. بنابراین جای تعجب نیست زمانیکه پروتئین ها به طور صحیح تا نمی خورند (بدتاخوردن)، سبب ایجاد اثرات جدی شامل بسیاری از بیماری های آشنا مثل آلزایمر، جنون گاوی، و پارکینسون می گردند.

How come it looks like this ???

i read over the site, but i am not sure that I understand how this works. What kind of information is generated from us having the screensaver and how is it used?

It's the same process as the global warming one and the more famous SETI@home. Basically, there are many configurations of protein foldings and to calculate all the orientations, they need our computers. Each computer while running the screensaver is calculating the different orientations. The finished calcluations are sent back to the main server.
