I am looking for something to do with my spare CPU Time by using a program like SETI@Home http://setiathome.berkeley.edu (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/) but i want to use another program besides SETI

Hi,
A lot of people are using this:
http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/

Much better way to use spare CPU cycles.

I'll second Folding@Home for Stanford
I fold for Team MacOSX 1971, an international team & a great group of people who are Mac, Windows & nix friendly.

hmm. I messed that up a bit.


BOINC-based distributed computing projects include:

* Climateprediction.net: Improve the accuracy of long-term climate prediction.
* Einstein@home: search data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US and from the GEO 600 gravitational wave observatory in Germany for signals coming from rapidly rotating neutron stars, known as pulsars.
* LHC@home: improve the design of the CERN LHC particle accelerator.
* Predictor@home: Solve biomedical questions and investigate protein-related diseases.
* SETI@home: Analyze radio-telescope data, looking for evidence of extraterrestrial life.

We encourage you to participate in multiple projects, so that your computer will be kept busy even while projects are down or out of work.
