Lightbulb TAs unite with computing power to fight Cancer

A landmark research project has begun that allows people to make a real difference in the fight against cancer.

The Intel-United Devices Cancer Research Project is asking you to volunteer your PC to help process molecular research being conducted by the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford in England and the National Foundation for Cancer Research. To participate, you simply download a very small, no cost, non-invasive software program that works like a screensaver: it runs when your computer isn't being used, and processes research until you need your machine. Your computer never leaves your desk, and the project never interrupts your usual PC use.

There is no cost to participate and no impact on your computer use. The project software cannot detect or transfer anything on your machine but project-specific information. It just allows your computer to screen molecules that may be developed into drugs to fight cancer. Each individual computer analyzes a few molecules and then sends the results back over the Internet for further research. The goal is to enlist enough volunteers to provide very rich and thorough results to the University of Oxford for further research. This project is anticipated to be the largest computational chemistry project ever undertaken and represents a genuine hope to find a better way to fight cancer.

The computational power to perform research of this scale is only available through the generosity of individuals like you.

Read the FAQ if you have more questions.

Download the software (Windows 98, ME, NT 4.0 (SP5+), 2000, XP)

After you fill out your profile details and everything, make sure to LOGIN and then JOIN the TranceAddict team so our results are combined and our ranking improves.

I've been running it since the end of January now on a few machines, it DOES NOT slow down the stuff you do (unless it's something very cpu intensive like photoshop/gaming - then you can just right click the system tray icon and click Snooze (to stop it for 5 minutes) or just exit it entirely)

Ok, i was thinking, i have got this on my comp, but it does make your cpu run at 100% all the time, ok it doesnt effect how quickly things open etc, as it is clever. But isnt having your cpu running at 100% all the time bad for it, or gives it a shorter life?

Remember to LOGIN before clicking the link to join the TranceAddict team - or else it won't work..

Also, don't worry about running at 100%.. as long as your machine isn't overheating (or you aren't overclocking it to the limit) then you have nothing to worry about
