Going by the number of responses u have got Andy, no one even understands what you are talking abt (including me). I guess, these are tools which u played with when the rest of us were in cradles or Nurseries

DC proggys??
By the list it looks like you must mean those programs that your screen saver runs, or run in the background.
I run SETI...haven't found any extra-terrestrial life yet, but I still hope.

Sorry. By DC i mean Distributed Computing programs/projects.
Yes they can run as your screen saver like seti can or by a simple dos like window application.
They are all for a good cause. Genome@home has to do with decoding genomes(not really sure what they are though )
Folding@home simulates the folding of proteins. Both of these are run by Stanford University.
You can get more info here:
Folding
Genome
Like i said its all for a good cause, and there are teams that run these programs kind of like a good natured competition with the goal being the betterment of society(a lofty goal i know, but it sounds good ).
 
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
