A Little About Us & Getting Started

Postby USAFA82 » Mon Feb 04, 2008 4:36 pm

We are a group of brothers and sisters in Christ who are donating our unused computer time to help find cures for diseases for the benefit of humanity. Together, we comprise a team at World Community Grid simply called Christians and captained by our fearless leader, Diana G. We also contribute to other worthwhile projects outside of World Community Grid.

World Community Grid

Regardless of whether you join our team, we encourage you to join WorldCommunityGrid.org and donate your computer's unused cycles! You are welcome to visit our forums anytime!

Information from "About Us" section of WorldCommunityGrid.org:
Our Mission, Our Work and You
World Community Grid's mission is to create the world's largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity.

Our work has developed the technical infrastructure that serves as the grid's foundation for scientific research. Our success depends upon individuals collectively contributing their unused computer time to change the world for the better.

World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not-for-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid. As part of our commitment to advancing human welfare, all results will be in the public domain and made public to the global research community.

How Grid Technology Works
Making a difference has never been easier! Grid technology is simple and safe to use. To start, you register, then download and install a small program or "agent" onto your computer.

When idle, your computer will request data on a specific project from World Community Grid's server. It will then perform computations on this data, send the results back to the server, and ask the server for a new piece of work. Each computation that your computer performs provides scientists with critical information that accelerates the pace of research!
