    World Community Grid is celebrating its 5th Anniversary!

    Thank you to all of our members who have contributed throughout the first 5 years! Here's to many more!

    To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of World Community Grid, we're asking members to upload videos telling everyone why they donate their computing time to World Community Grid. click here to read more.

    World Community Grid (WCG) is an effort to create the world's largest public computing grid to tackle scientific research projects that benefit humanity.Launched November 16, 2004, it is funded and operated by IBM with client software currently available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD operating systems.

    Using the idle time of computers around the world, World Community Grid's research projects have analyzed aspects of the human genome, HIV, dengue, muscular dystrophy, cancer, influenza, rice crop yields and clean energy. The organization has so far partnered with over 400 other companies and organizations to assist in the work and has over 475,000 registered user accounts. wiki source-

    Got the email today. I'm happily crunching a PII X4 955BE @ 2.8GHz and my laptop's Core 2 Duo T8100 2.1GHz 24/7. :)

    Thanks man, I do what I can do! :toast::toast:
    Every day I go to the computer lab at school it depresses me to see 2 dozen Core 2 Duos sitting idle all day :(

    I really want to get them crunching (preferably under my name for TPU:D), but I have no idea who to talk to about doing so :ohwell:
