We were doing some maintenance on our site and noticed that a Flash song had stopped working with most browsers because it was Flash. We had done a YouTube version before but found that we could now create a slightly higher resolution version which makes the text a bit easier to read. (This video has some small text.)
 
It would be helpful if people liked the new video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-XUoZVbVlI.

Lifeboat Foundation has contributed 16,732,334 Cobblestones of computation (14.46 quintillion floating-point operations) to [email protected] since joining this effort on January 27, 2008.
 
Donate the unused CPU cycles on your computer(s) to help scientists determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. By running the Rosetta program on your computer while you don’t need it you will help speed up and extend research in ways scientists couldn’t possibly attempt without your help. You will also be helping efforts at designing new proteins to fight diseases such as HIV, malaria, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
