True, in fact very few problems are is hard as protein folding, that why I was so impressed. I think it's interesting that until about a decade ago biology was the only area of scientific research where computers did not play a major part, now the largest computer of all (by far) will be engaged in it exclusively.

It still won't fit on your desk but It will have 64 chips or 2048 processors on each mother board.
