I might hook the meter back up to it tomorrow just to see. Don't want to interrupt the encryption right now though

i'm gaming the competitions a bit... i'm getting the pieces up to ~80% finished, then requesting new pieces, and doing the same, that way all of the work pieces i get until the contests start will count toward them as well.

The Muscular Dystrophy Project team posted an update recently. They're one of the computing projects involved in WCG. Its neat to see updates like this that show us what our contributions and CPU donation time are actually doing.

Bump! Anyone else want to join? Sure wouldn't mind having a few more members on the team helping out here. I noticed they have a new clean water project that they're running. Some pretty neat stuff:

Special thanks to everyone here involved in this project. Its people like you that make it possible for us to have a fighting chance if we ever do get diagnosed with cancer or other diseases that these projects focus on.

we're almost up to a collective year of CPU time already!

1 year, 277 days, 2 hours, 37 minutes and 32 seconds of comp time since 7/23/2010.... not bad at all.

Here'* an update.

The clean energy project was recently made available for processing in Windows based systems (previously only available on Linux).

I think this is some pretty interesting stuff.

http://cleanenergy.harvard.edu/

Quote:
The Clean Energy project uses computational chemistry and the willingness of people to help look for the best molecules possible for: organic photovoltaics to provide inexpensive solar cells, polymers for the membranes used in fuel cells for electricity generation, and how best to assemble the molecules to make those devices. By helping us search combinatorially among thousands of potential systems, you can contribute to this effort.
I think its amazing that we can donate our unused CPU time to further the research of solar power so we can reduce pollution and leave a smaller carbon footprint. I'm not a tree hugger by any means, but this is pretty cool stuff.

Anyone who has yet to join this project really should sign up. Its pretty simple, and it does make a difference. See page 1.
