    I think this is an amazing thing to do. Now if only we had the computing power to simulate a bacterium!

    I've got my computer running [email protected] Well, I have four processors running it, actually! It's a distributed computing program that models protein folding. BaptistBoard has a folding team, the thread is here. I'm folding for a different team, but if anyone isn't already donating spare processor cycles this is a good thing to sign up for.

    Nowhere near as cool as a whole virus, but you've got to start somewhere!
