In 2007 I began donating CPU cycles to a distributed computing project run by Stanford University called 'Folding@Home'.
Approximately 3 and a half years on these are my statistics:
As you will see I have run the client on a number of machines (including the name 'Austin') and even managed to recruit some team members.
For information on the Folding @ Home distributed computing project check out http://fah-web.stanford.edu/
Anyone that hasn't done this before and would like to sign up you are more than welcome to join my folding team by using the team number 90130. The little certificates you can access after your first completed work unit are kind of neat.
Do any of my followers/visitors donate unused CPU cycles?
