Boinc is a Distributed computing Client, that runs several sub programs that do primary computations for important projects arround the world, as a volunteer and an ex Lab Tech, this fits very tightly into my Life Philosophy, you dont get paid for it, and the main satisfaction comes from feeling that I have contributed to the advance of Modern Science, even if only in a very small way, I hope more and more people join this very important Programme.

I'm a member. I also agree that it's a fantastic programme. I've been running it for years now and make especially sure I always run all of the ones that help out medical research and the like.
