Volunteer Your PC!

Normally I don't put up news that people ask me to, but this one is kinda cool:
Submitted by Tony Sutton:

Would you like to volunteer your computer to help with the research for Cancer? If so, why don't you join the LiveJournal Team, which Scott Freeman recently created. At the moment, we have 15 members and it's growing. But we need more! And there is where you can help.

United Devices is similar to SETI@Home but United Devices is for researching cancer, where they're looking for a cure. The team was created because cancer is a killer, and we want to help to find a cure for it.

You can download the clients from here and it's available to Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4 and 2000. Linux and Macintosh versions should be available soon.

Hope to see you aboard!
So, if you have a free Windows machine and like using spare CPU cycles, this might be a useful and fun way to spend them. I just joined the team, but I'm not doing too well because I only have Windows on one computer.
