    Btw, why does India seem to have it's own system of lights? Everything in folding looks consistent but India.

    I also noticed, what I determined were US soldiers in Afghanistan.

    Or friendly terrorists?

    One light I saw was in the middle of nowhere - a boat, maybe?

    There always seems to be some geezer in orkney running folding as well. If you look carefully there are also some tiny islands in the middle of the pacific and indian oceans. Pretty interesting

    Yeah, and I`m starting to feel a little bit competitive about folding now. I think maybe I might take competition too far sometimes.

    But I`m wondering what`s the best ethical choice here. Do you create more good with your small contribution to the folding programme than the harm you cause by leaving your PS3 on and using more energy resources?

    I think I read somewhere that with the new updates (it's on the folding site iirc) your PS3 uses 115W. I presume that is per hour.

    Couple of weekends back it was my Uncle Peter's 60th birthday and while he was round I had F@H running as something to do whilst I recharged controllers. Uncle Peter is a scientist with a seriously strong background in biology. I asked him to explain what was going on with the proteins and his explanation was awesome!

    Apparently he'd tried to go the teaching route at some point in his career, but it didn't fit with him so well, which I find amazing considering how well he explained it to me. I cant remember all of it, admittedly, but by way of example he explained the difference between biological and non-biological detergent by what they were doing at the molecular level.

    Bit of a mind job, but fascinating - especially having it explained by someone with so much enthusiasm for the subject.
