    What Distributed Computing projects do you run?

    I personally run SETI@HOME because I am a firm believer in space and technology. I let it run 100% of the time I am not on my PC.

    I've debated doing others, namely aids and cancer research. Just wondering which one you run?

    A list of projects.

    I personally recommend:

    I think if you leave your PC on for extended periods (mine is on all the time) it's a good thing to use wasted CPU cycles on some cause, if you can.

    I am doing SETI@HOME and I might add a 1 or 2 others to my other PCs.
