Hi Folks,

Another distributed computing project has begun, you may want to take a
look and
if you have spare cycles, consider contributing your cluster.  

The project samples billions of protein 3D structures, and is detailed
on the web site:


A text mode client is available, instead of the Windows screensaver -
for Beowulf  cluster contributors.  
Binaries are avaliable on Win/Linux/LinuxPPC/Tru64/Irix/Solaris/HPUX-11
Mac OSX binaries will be posted shortly.

There is an extensive FAQ on the web site:  

Instructions for running the client non-interactively on a Cluster are
provided in the readme:

The project is also listed on intel.com/cure and has been extensively
tested over the past year.

Thanks for your consideration.
