Boinc or the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing is something I learned about the other day on a BBC worldservice program. I was fascinated by the wealth of options that it provides. It is quiet similar to the "Ligandfit" application that I have been running for the last 2 year and 153 days. It is different in that there is a much bigger array of things you can work on. Both have projects that I do recommend.
Given that many people like myself have loads of computer cycles going to waste, it makes sense to do something with it. For me there are two things that I do with my excess computing power; I have bots running doing maintenance work on Wiktionary and the Ligandfit..
Do you have cycles to donate ?
