World Community Grid Helping Humanity (Donate your PC time)
Internet, Life, Health
"World Community Grid's" mission is to create the largest public computing grid benefiting humanity. Their work is built on the belief that technological innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can change our world for the better. Our success depends on individuals - like you - collectively contributing their unused computer time to this not-for-profit endeavor.
How can you help? Simply donate the time your computer is turned on, but would normally lie idle, for projects that benefit humanity. Like a screensaver, grid technology is easy to use, safe and free. When you are ready to use your computer, the grid software will shut itself off until the next time your computer is idle.

Currently my machine is working on finding out how well one of many potential drug molecules fits into the pockets for Human Immunodificiency Virus Protease. The best molcule found will be lab tested, and could lead to a new drug in the fight against AIDS.
