The censorship doesn't bother me so much since Pinky set up the Zone.

For the last ten days my FAD output has been somewhat lower than in previous weeks. For a while I have been doubting whether the technique of random screening is the most efficient, and whether the large drug companies seeming lack of interest is well, a genuine lack of interest. Is it not possible, if not probable, that knowing the targets structure, they have software that can generate chemical structures, intelligently, that will bind to the target.

Also, in many of the biomolecular DC projects, there is a seemingly  overabundance of contributing volunteers, thus targets are being excelled, and new data, perhaps,  too hastily prepared. I have looked at some of the smaller DC projects, where a single volunteer can make a significant contribution, and have settled for Stephen Brooks "Muon1 Distributed Particle Accelerator Design" project, which is proving stable under winXP, alas, there does not appear to be a version for Linux, so I still need to seek a suitable project when playing under Linux.

I'm very much with John on this one.  The only 'issue' I have with WCG is their over-censorship - but this surely isn't a bad thing considering that they are hoping to attract all types, including younger members.


I've not personally seen, nor even heard of an instance of censorship at the WCG forum.  Compared to ud, they are a model of restraint.

.....despite new linux client, i'd rather not play guinea pig Tongue


Reading about linux in these forums, in literature and other forums on the 'net, it appears to me that being a guinea pig is a major part of the continually evolving linux experience.  I would think you would welcome such an opportunity.

i don't mind playing guinea pig for usability of things, but when it comes to something like a dc project, i like the set it and forget it [email protected] has a stable client for that. Smiley

Feel the same here John.

Anyway for me, I started [email protected] very early on and grid.org the day it went live and I never regretted doing either. Well… Rolleyes

i think the censorship was in regards to language and such...some tend to think they go overboard on what should and shouldn't be editted.

Either way that pretty well restricts their membership to people with Cray type CPUs  Hoghappy

I'm thinking about loading them up, and seeing if the software enforces the limit.
512mb shared on the notebook. I'll max the video share and see if it still works.

I thought it had promise as well.  My computers meet the requirements but I'm sure others on the team don't.  No point in it if all my teamies couldn't run it.   Confused

Only slightly cranky

I'm just reading the faq's there.  It really does use that much memory.  Even at 512 some folks get horrid system slowdown with the client running or big swap file usage.
Too rich for me I'm afraid.   Doh

If my team decides to go that way, I'll give it a try.  My primary machine only has 384MB though.  Frankenstein has 512 but it's tempremental about graphics and changing programs while running.

Didn't seem to be much interest with it over there DA.

If you're really interested in it you need to say so.  You never know there might be others who are to.

I've never had a problem running thier agents either on Win or Linux. Tho to save on system resources I recommend running the text version.
