    It is a research project using Distributed Computing. You connect to a server, download a project (called a Work Unit), process the WU, and send back the results. Then you start again. You get points based on the complexity of the project.
    how much bandwitdh does this things takes?
    It takes just a few seconds to download a project, which then runs on your pc with no access to the project server. When complete it again takes only seconds to send the results. Occasionally it will also need to get an updated version of the software, but that also only takes a few seconds. So bandwidth is not an issue.
    must our Pc's be On 24/7 or we can cut in line at any time?
    The time limit for sending results is based on a PII 500MHz running for about 4 hours per day. Obviously the more powerful your pc, the less you need to have it running in order to satisfy the requirements. It only uses cpu cycles which are not being used for anything else, so there is no harm in having it start when your pc starts up and left running until you shut down.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    You need to improve your cooling. I'm sure your PC runs hot like that when you play games also.

    You would be more than welcome to (re)join. Check the latest statistics on our teampage: http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py...e&teamnum=34905 by clicking on this link.

    It really does not matter if you do one work unit or many, your work unit(s) might be the one that leads to the scientific breakthrough in curing Cancer, Parkinson or some other awfull sickness.
