Hooking up your computer to the World Community Grid is one of the easiest ways to make a difference to our world.

And you don't have to do anything other than the initial sign up and download.

When you are not actively using your computer (eg you are on the phone, sipping coffee, or pondering a sentence on your screen), the processor on your computer automatically starts working on tough mathematical problems to help fight cancer, AIDS, and muscular dystrophy. You won't even notice this happening. How amazing is that!

Why stop at your own computer? Why not sign up all the computers in your office or home?
