We use our computers to support the important research work of World Community Grid. Initially our support was for the cancer and muscular dystrophy based projects, because my mother died of cancer at only 64 and my father suffers from muscular dystrophy. After amassing a few million points for these projects, we recently began to support all the other projects too.
If you think there are times when your computer sits there doing nothing whilst you are busy doing something else, then why not let World Community Grid run their software on your computer? It is only active when you are not using your computer, so you don’t really know it is there, and yet you will be contributing towards the goals of some very worthwhile projects.
Please support them if you can.
