Not sure if there will be much appetite for this, but I thought it would be worth a try. I realised that I am currently the only person still running World Community Grid as part of "Team EVC"!
I wondered if anyone who has joined in the last 11 years (or any old stagers!) would be interested in joining the team and shoring up our numbers, which aren't looking too hot. Looking back over this thread Team EVC were in the top 500 for some metric or other at one point, but not any more.
If you aren't familiar with World Community Grid, it is a distributed computing system that uses your computer's "wasted" idle processing time to do good stuff - fold proteins, cure cancer, that kind of thing.
Here endeth the message!
(And if this doesn't bump the thread back up to the top so people can see it I will feel very silly)
I dint trust that system accessing my computers innards. I refuse to throw my hat in a ring where I font have control of my data or insurance of privacy.
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain " *** “…far from science having buried God, not only do the results of science point towards his existence, but the scientific enterprise itself is validated by his existence.”- Dr.John Lennox
“The whole war between the atheist and the theist comes down to this: the atheist believes a 'what' created the universe; the theist believes a 'who' created the universe.” - Criss Jami, Killo
“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” — Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).
I completely respect that; to each their own. The only possible counter I would offer is that you might go green to know how much your privacy is (likely) already being compromised by various means - cookies, Facebook, etc...
... although you may be taking very active measures to avoid this as much as humanly possible; in which case you are being consistently paranoid in avoiding distributed computing, and I respect that!
Ha ha, amazing! I only really lurk here now, and then very occasionally, but I have always felt part of "Team EVC" because of World Community Grid, and I really appreciate having you there too... but I hope you didn't leave a cooler team!
