eat, work, eat, work, gym, eat, hockey, eat, sleep

eat, work, eat, work, gym, eat, hockey, eat, sleep <-- my day.

If you're not running this as your screen saver, you should consider it.  It lets scientists use a portion of your computer's processing power for the good of humanity when you're not using it.  Right now, my computer is trying to find target molecules to block the replication of the Dengue virus.  The potential drug developed could block similar viruses like Hep C, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus.  If you leave your computer on, it may as well be doing some good.

  1. As you know, I have been doing this for a long time and the reports they send me are very encouraging.  The amount of computer time they log from the use of the volunteers' computers is amazing.....not to mention the amount of research all this enables.  

    Dengue fever is a nasty virus.  Dad got it in Vietnam in 1970 and the residual effects lasted for quite some time.
