Use the idle time on your computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) to cure diseases, study global warming, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research. It's safe, secure, and easy.
BOINC lets you donate computing power to scientific research projects such as:
- Climateprediction.net: study climate change
- Einstein@home: search for gravitational signals emitted by pulsars
- LHC@home: improve the design of the CERN LHC particle accelerator
- Predictor@home: investigate protein-related diseases
- Rosetta@home: help researchers develop cures for human diseases
- SETI@home: Look for radio evidence of extraterrestrial life
- Cell Computing biomedical research (Japanese; requires nonstandard client software)
- World Community Grid: advance our knowledge of human disease.
- To participate in a project, download and run BOINC software, then enter the project's URL.
- You can participate in more than one project, and you control the fraction of your computing power that goes to each project. If you participate in several projects, your computer will be kept busy even when one project has no work.

distributed.net Client (dnetc) 2.9103.509
distributed.net was the Internet's first general-purpose distributed computing project. Founded in 1997, our network has grown to include thousands of users around the world donating the power of their home computers to academic research and public-interest projects.

Our goal: to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases
You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.
Folding@Home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems thousands to millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.
Are you donating CPU cycles to Folding@Home - on more than one computer at the same time? FoldingObserver is there for you to keep track of the progress of your clients!
FoldingObserver gives you a simple possibility to monitor your Folding@Home clients within your local network. It works with the command line client, the screensaver and the standalone version of Folding@Home. You can keep track of lots of details of your clients.
InCrease is a GUI for installing, configuring, monitoring, and controlling the Folding@home command-line client.
Pooch is software providing the easiest way to assemble and operate a high-performance parallel computer.

SetiStats Widget 1.2
This little tool lets you view your SetiBOINC stats under Mac OS X Tiger. The widget automatically contacts the SetiBOINC site inconfigurable intervals and reads your stats to display them on your Dashboard. With this, you're always up-to-date concerning your current Seti stats.
Xgrid Agent for Mac OS X 10.3
Now any individual or workgroup can quickly build a low-cost supercomputer. Introducing Xgrid, the first distributed computing architecture to be built into a desktop or server operating system. With Xgrid, scientists, animators and digital content creators can run a single job across multiple computers at once - without ever rewriting a single line of code.
The Xgrid Agent for Mac OS X 10.3 allows a computer to contribute compute cycles to an Xgrid network using the new Xgrid pane in System Preferences. This can either be a local grid controlled by Mac OS X Server 10.4, or a global grid being run elsewhere over the Internet.
Xgrid Home Page
XgridLite, a Mac OS X preference pane, enables the Xgrid distributed computing solution on the standard version of Mac OS X Tiger. If you don't need the advanced features of Tiger Server's Xgrid controller but still want to run your own grid, XgridLite is for you.
With XgridLite, you can:
- Turn on and off the built-in Xgrid controller with a single click.
- Set passwords for client and agent authentication.
- Reset the controller to default settings.
