Donate your spare CPU cycles to help with AIDS research

Since it’s world AIDS day on 1st Dec I thought I’d bring forum members attentention to the FightAIDS@Home distributed computing project that launched earlier this month.

It’s similar in principle to folding@home ( which has been out there a while working out how protein folds (implicated in Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons Disease when folding goes awry).
The program uses your computers spare CPU cycles (i.e. when you step
away from your computer and your computer is doing
nothing else but sitting there burning electricity) to process information for drug design etc to help research to fight/cure HIV & AIDS. More about the project here:
