Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone else here do distributed computing? I have my PCs running World Community Grid and work on the Clean Energy Project. Does anyone else participate?

Not those exact projects, but a similar one. I use pornographic web sites to lure people into downloading trojans which zombify their computer. I use these zombies to launch DDoS attacks and ransom corporations. Distributed computing at it's finest!

Haha, well, just kidding. Something about the idea of my computer working 100% of the time freaks me out. It needs rest!

At my university we use CONDOR to distribute physics simulations across the entire university network, including e.g. administrative machines with multi-Ghz processors that are being used for word processing!

Therefore I support monte carlo simulations in lattice gauge theory, simulations of self-organized criticality in neural networks, etc, whichever grad student's thesis work is at the front of the job queue at the moment!

Someone should do the same thing except instead of launching DDoS attacks they should install world community grid software to cure diseases and things.

Porn is all well and good but I was referring more to projects that are used for other things such as predicting global warming or computing models to find why cancer occurs. I guess if you want to work on rendering your "videos" that's good too.

I just recently started folding at home, after i found out how to do it on my PS3. Now I have the CPU and GPU versions running on my home PC when I'm using the PC for "lesser" tasks (internet, email, work :smile:)
