World community grid

The World Community Grid's mission is to create the world's largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity. It allows you to donate unused cpu cycles on your home and/or work computer as part of the grid. The projects that they are currently working on are:
  • Genome Comparison Project
  • Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2 Project
  • FightAIDS@Home Project

You choose to participate in any, or all, of these projects. To learn more, see http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org.

I've been participating in the predecessor of the World Community Grid (called grid.org) for several years; however, that project was shut down recently; so, I've setup both my work and home PC's on the World Community Grid.

This has been a public service announcement

Was wondering if you are a member of the Mormon Community Grid team on wcg.org?

If not, and your still on WCG, please feel free to join us.
