Microsoft helping in AIDS Vaccine Research

Good idea. Viruses are often combatted by other viruses.

<<In an attempt to contribute directly to science, Microsoft Research is collaborating with Jim Mullins at the University of Washington and Simon Mallal of Royal Perth Hospital in Australia on what Ling described as "doing an AIDS vaccine in a rational manner." Computational science can contribute by calculating the probabilities of various protein sequences appearing in the rapidly mutating HIV virus, to identify the vaccine that would produce immunity to as many strains as possible. >>>

Just kidding. Bill has donated hundreds of millions to fight AIDS. His efforts are to be commended.

Just could not resist flaming them. Old habits die hard.

Hey now - AIDSAntiserum.Net is going to be great. It's going to be flexible, powerful, and will cure AIDS completely and absolutely.

However, you do NOT want to see the size of the needle...
