Cloud Computing should be understood as an evolutionary rather than revolutionary approach to delivering software. I think the rPath video below is the best explanation I have seen of Cloud Computing. It represents this evolutionary process without getting bogged down in the technical jargon, it even uses a car metaphor (which everyone loves).
|We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, however I still found a new article
on the Stanford Folding website quite interesting. It relates to the importance of some turkey proteins in the study of folding. Why are they important? Well according to the
article the protein fluoresces when hit with light of a particular frequency. This fluorescence can then be accurately measured and documented to track the folding process.
I have been folding for some time now and have amassed quite a few WU (Work Units). If you are interested in using a spare core or two of your shiny new computers then please come and join Overclockers Australia, we need all the help we can get!
As you can see I have added my folding statistics to the right hand column of my website.
As you can see I have added my folding statistics to the right hand column of my website. You can now track my folding progress! I am still going pretty strong having recently cracked the 400k points barrier. I have a new celeron D computer coming online next week, hopefully followed by a big increase as I set up some more computers at work.
Anyway I highly suggest some more people join up and start folding with Overclockers Australia today!
