Folding @ Home , helping

I should give the advice to everyone to go visit the Folding@Home Project and put your idle cpu while reading the net to do something usefull for ALL of us. from the site "What does Folding@Home do? Folding@Home is a distributed computing project which studies protein folding, misfolding, aggregation, and related diseases. We use novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. This has allowed us to simulate folding for the first time, and to now direct our approach to examine folding related disease."

I hate 4:3 Full Screen

Why is this happening ? Few years ago when dvd started to take over VHS and my Video Rental Store started to have lots of them , most of them were 16:9. Most people hated the black borders but I liked it , finally I could watch a movie theater perspective , with the time going the affordable prices of dvd players and even widescreen crt's getting cheaper. Why the hell there is so many 4:3 videos on my rental store. They used to have a big header written FULLSCREEN or WIDESCREEN in them , now I rented 2 movies (Peter Pan and Hangman's curse) and both of them are 4:3 with a little warning on the back , hell 4:3 looks worse on a 4:3 tv then 16:9 do ... Well looks like I need to be more careful when renting my next movies.
