    soo... what's happening? Two of you all have dropped off... we need to get more people in on this... I think it's a really good cause and to think we could help with this... crazy.

    I noticed... I keep checking the stats online... I found out the other day you can install multiple instances of it under your account... so now I have 2 here at work going almost 24/7. And the one can utilize almost a full computer, because I don't get a ton of use out of my second computer in my office.

    Why dont you programmers on this board cure cancer? wouldnt it be nice that programmers cured cancer and not the doctors?why not start a team here. then you will know where the info is going.Besides, i talked to a doctor today, i think it can be done through programming.

    hmm... and I think you're on crack. I'd bet a hefty sum of money that none of the programmers here know the slightest bit about the disease or how to cure it.

    hmmmmm, im on crack? why would they need to know much about the disease? they make the tools for the doctors to use. thats what programers have always done. they are engineers. matter of fact, doctors would be nowhere without programmers. i think( and this is just a theory) that since the cells can be seen in the blood stream, they can be shot down so to speak.i asked a doctor if you could put enough little men(so to speak) into the blood stream could they stomp out the bad cells. he said yes, it would diffinatly help, maybe stop the process.but it would take a lot of little men.then he looked at me like you are doing now and said, DO YOU HAVE LITTLE MEN?i laughed and said no.but was thinking something entirly differant than what he was thinking.ok here goes.iv seen small cameras that they put into the blood stream, it magnafies the blood and you can see the cells, right? what if they put a laser into the blood stream with the camera and every time the camera saw a bad cell, it would tell the laser to destroy it?now if you put enough lasers in each arm, leg, whatever, wouldnt that be a lot of little men?i have seen imaging software come a long way, and i believe it could kill thousands of cells a second this way.of course you would have to regulate the flow of blood , like putting the laser into a slower vein so it had time to reconize the cell, and kill it.i also asked the doctor what if the little men killed some good cells with the bad ones. he said, you would have to kill a lot of good cells to make a person sick, so thats not the problem, another words dont worry about killing good cells.if the imaging software could tell the laser to shoot when it saw a bad cell it would have to be fast.i asked a friend of mine who worked with lasers about the radiation affect, he said the radiation from the laser could be filtered down to almost nothing and still have a good strength, iv see them shoot bugs out of the air with this stuff...................... anyways, am i getting stupid, or, do i need to start crack?

    I'm sorry. But I don't believe that it'll help cure small pox.
