Donate your computer time for good causes!
World Community Grid is an organization that has mobilized normal people, like you and me, to donate their idle computer time to good causes. Simply download their application, tell them which causes you'd like to support, and away it runs.
Since it only runs when you aren't using your computer, it doesn't cost you anything, and can provide support for some really good causes. Here's the causes they currently are supporting:
- Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy – Phase 2
- Influenza Antiviral Drug Search
- Help Fight Childhood Cancer
- The Clean Energy Project
- Nutritious Rice for the World
- Help Conquer Cancer
- Human Proteome Folding – Phase

Note from Brian: I've been running this software for quite awhile now on my computer, to no ill effect. I, nor PAN, can be responsible for any slowdown or negative effects on your machine. I can only speak for my machine, and that it's worked well for me. Please understand we can't take any responsibility for supporting this software, and if you have any problems with it, please contact the World Community Grid for assistance. Thanks!
