Helping make a difference with a difference

During uncertain financial times it can be hard to dig deep in your pockets for charity.

So giving something that you have spare could help make a difference.
Using your spare computing power, you too can make a difference.

Modern home computers can perform billions of calculations a second. Most of the time, that's far more power than the average user needs, so even though you're working hard, your computer is just ticking over.
Distributed computing projects make use of this spare computer potential.

Its easy to set up and will not slow your computer down.

    This sounds like a very good way to infect your computer with viruses, malware and trojans. No thanks.

    First Post
    A host of distributed computing projects can be found here. I run 2 of them on my home and work pcs and have never, ever had a prob in the last 5 years.

    Mind you, the grs.hostoi link above in the first post does not work.
