CPU Filter: You know what they say about idle hands... What about idle FLOPs? Distributed computing (a.k.a. grid computing / a.k.a. cloud computing) has come a long way in the past years, and most people probably don't know the vast number of projects they can put their idle CPUs to work on - it's not just aliens and genomes anymore. There are more than onehundredprojects ranging from 3D rendering to climate prediction to saving the world with nutritious rice to neurons and nanobots. Why not lend an idle hand?
