    Bloody joke of the thing rates my PC as 75, when evertyhing is higher than the comparison, just cos it says I have a 1Gb HDD when I have 1 15Gb and 1 20Gb. bah!

    GMT = UTC

    gmt is (apparently) an obsolote standard, and is now(more or less) called UTC...

    ...don't ask :rolleyes:

    Ok what is it with this thing? Some units take longer than others (the first 1 I did took like 5 hours, the second only 2). And if ya PC crashes or ya reset it, it starts again? :mad:

    Ok Well I signed up to this along time ago... As I study partly in this feild at uni I heard about it before it was even set up through my lecturer. But I have had many many problems with the program crashing and loosing all data :/ but I think that I have got it going again now :p

    The tasks it recieves are different proteins and molecules... alothough as we know very little about cancer the number of Proteins changes rarely, and also they need to test a HECK of a lot of molecules against the each protien so you will test the same molecule over and over and over....

    But some tasts are shorter than others as it depends on what set of molecules you are distributed. Some are smaller with less "conformers" therefore your PC can process the task more quickly.

    About the storage you set it online in your profile settings... Mine is set to 5Gb :D

    CS that was the first Protein that was tested when this was first set up :p, and BTW if you ask me this protein is many many many times more interesting than that first simple protein.

    My PC didn't like it though and used to crash halfway through ever task :(
