This one is a little bit unusual. As many of you know, I am a scout leader and volunteer a few hours per week, although I wanted to do something additional to this normal routine to cross this item off my list.
I’ve joined the World Community Grid which means I have volunteered a portion of my server to a number of research projects which means the resources of my server are being used to process medical and scientific research when I am not using it.
The projects I am supporting are:
- Drug Search for Leishmaniasis
- Help Fight Childhood Cancer
- Help Conquer Cancer
- Computing for clean water
- The clean energy project
So far I have contributed over 6 days of research run time, and it’s still counting. For more information (specifically on the projects, or how you can also contribute) please visit the World Community Grid website.
