Julio Ortiz asks about registration behind a fire wall, and VRML output
for molecules (ribbons, sticks, spheres).

Hi Thomas:
A couple of question:

1) Chimera registration: When I try to register from our institute, 
behind a firewall, I can not register, I received an error
message as there were not internet connection. For my personal computer 
is not a problem. I can do it from home, but
for other computers at the institute, it could be a problem. I would 
like to update all our versions from chimera, so..how
to deal with the registration problem afterwards?

2) VRML export of pdb file representations: As far as I know Chimera can 
export surfaces of density maps to VRML format.
It is possible to export some representation of a pdb files, like 
ribbons, sphere or sticks also to VRML?. There are some programs
that do it, so maybe could be a nice feature to introduce in Chimera (if 
is not already possible).
