How to save lives while you are sleeping!!

Yes, you can make the world a better place while you are sleeping and it does not cost you much. All you need is a computer. Check the Folding @ Home project page for details.

I usually leave my PS3 unfolding proteins at night while I’m sleeping and I wake feeling great that I made the world a better place while resting. My Folding @ Home page can be found here. My Team id is 61686, join me if you can and lets make the world a better place while we are sleeping 🙂

Proteins are biology’s workhorses — its “nanomachines.” Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or “fold.” The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.

Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. “misfold”), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

Folding@home is a distributed computing project — people from throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the project closer to our goals. Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.

What have we done so far?
We have had several successes. You can read about them on our Science page, on our Awards page, or go directly to our Results page.

What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease? You can help by simply running a piece of software.

Also, you can learn more by watching recent seminars (Stanford BMI ; Xerox PARC). One can also help by donating funds to the project, via Stanford University.

Streaming your PC games to other machines

StreamMyGame launched new software that enables to stream your games to other PC or Linux based machines. If you have Linux on your PS3, you can now play games like Crysis and Halo!. The following video shows a tutorial that stream my game released on youtube

Disgaea 3 Trailer : Amazing Japanese Announcer

This is how I want to sound when I learn Japanese. Forget the game, although it does look interesting. But I don’t think I have enough time in my life to play a game with 9,999 levels. Btw, a commenter on the Kotaku post about this game said that the announcer is Norio Wakamoto … don’t know who is that … great voice over though
