Google is pleased to introduce Google Compute, a new feature for the 
Google Toolbar. By turning on this feature, you allow your computer 
to work on complex scientific problems when it would otherwise be 
idle. The work it does is automatically sent via the Internet to 
researchers who combine it with information sent by thousands of 
other users.

The first beneficiary of this effort is Folding(at)home, a non-profit 
research project at Stanford University that is trying to understand 
the structure of proteins so they can develop better treatments for a 
number of illnesses.

Maybe we could get them to include dnetc (or UD) in their toolbar also.  :)
