Folding Home

I’m folding proteins on my locked screen (I normally do not use any
screensaver but screen locks)… Few days ago I have found (again) a protein
folding project, called Folding@Home.

The goal of the project is understand how to fold proteins and protein
aggregation, helping to fight Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, Mad Cow
(BSE), CJD and ALS… I love to help, so I have downloaded the GUI and the
screensaver and joined to Team Mac OS X.

I have a big problem with the screen saver. I don’t want to throw out my
display after a few months. The screensaver has advertisements on the bottom
of the screen, they will probably burn into the screen.

I hate this kind of usability problems. Are they thinking or just pretending
