Hi Adam,

To recycle the otherwise-wasted spare capacity of home PCs to raise money for good causes. We also give any unused computation to a selection of cool science projects.

Cheers,

Hi Adam,

We don't comment on the exact nature of individual tasks, as they're sometimes (usually, in fact) commercially confidential. They do all pass our strict ethical policy, though.

Cheers,

Mark
