    I can offer a comment on this. Since the present project is studying
    molecules for therapy in cases of Leukemia, a cause awfully close to my
    heart, I signed up. Oddly enough, when I tried to create a new account,
    the system told me that my password was not appropriate. After several
    tries, I gave up. Even more oddly, the screen saver appears to be
    running. What's troubling about it? Unlike Seti@home, it doesn't show
    anything happening. It just floats a United Devices logo around. Not very
    inspiring, that.
