    Thread moved to our Distributed Computing forum.

    Take a look at this link HERE.

    Apparently it only works for linux at the moment.

    Regards Howard :)

    Oh, I guess it does. I'm dual-booting Fedora core 6 and Xp pro, so not a problem :)

    sounds like a good project, but I'd be leary. It could also be used for very nefarious purposes the way it is designed and advertised. You're essentially allowing others to use your computer instead of processing unused computer cycles on your system and uploading them to a central server - like BOINC.

    Yes. Good point. And I'm not certain I really want to use it anyway.

    I suppose projects like BOINC could also be used for nefarious purposes as well, but word would get around fast.
