Thanks to Beastage on neowin IRC, I discovered Boinc! Boinc stands for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. What Boinc basically does once you download and install the software is donate your PC's computing power to scientific research projects such as: SETI@Home and Einstein@Home. In other words; this means that during your computer's idle time, you and many others who have Boinc, are actualy helping out either in the search for extraterrestial lifeforms or gravitational signals emitted by pulsars. This means that instead of institutes having only one super computer doing all the searching, people can actively choose to help increase the overall computing power in researching various projects. Other projects are :
You probably think that it would take up a whole lot of space and consume alot of resources on your PC while it runs. This is not the case, as you can choose when and how the software runs, if you want to - you can tell the program to run only when your PC is idle. I myself am running SETI@Home and Einstein@Home, after all why not help out humanity while your PC idles.
