Google compute finally released to the public

One of the most eagerly awaited Google betas - the Google Compute feature of the Google toolbar - has finally been released to the general public. This is SETI at home, only instead of searching for green men from outer space, you're participating in actual worthwhile research.

Instead you're participating in research to solve the protein folding problem reported on earlier.

This - in contrast to the green men - is actually worthwhile, even if the team at Stanford aren't necessarily the top scientists in the field (if they are, I'm sorry - but it always looked more like a 'whoa, we're young and know the internet, let's find some science to do' kind of project to me).
