Anybody know how these things work? -

hey guys, been a long time since I posted on here, but it turns out I'm doing something very similar to the folding@home project. The short update is that I'm now going to school in Berkeley studying BioEngineering, and I'm doing undergraduate research involving proteins. The long version is that I'm doing molecular dynamic simulations of actin-binding proteins using things like charmm and namd. Problem is, all of our simulations take at least a few days, and one even went for 4 weeks (using all 8 processors at 100% on a dual quad-core Xeon Mac Pro). If anybody knows more about distributed computing, it would definitely help us get work done a lot faster.
