OpenFOAM (Open Field Operationa and Manipulation) is a computational fluid dynamics toolbox which simulates "anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics, electromagnetics and the pricing of financial options." All this and free and open source as well.

Like most other places in the world, when entering a country you will need to notify immigration of why you are visiting, how long for and where you are staying. Keep an eye out for signs like "Bea Cukai" (Customs), "Permeriksaan Paspor" (Passport Control)
"Permisi, Saya mau melihat Bapak/Ibu-mu paspor" (Excuse me, I want to see your passport)
"Kami di sini untuk berlibur/urusan bisnis" (We are here on holiday/on business)
"Kami di sini selama empat belas hari" (We are here for forteen days)

NAMD is a parallel molecular dynamics code for large biomolecular systems. Version 2.7b1 has some advantages over 2.6 and an extensive user's guide. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing architecture developed by NVIDIA providing a computing engine in NVIDIA graphics processing units or GPUs. It should make NAMD awesome, if it works.
