Have you, or do you, participate in any of these programs? If so ... why? Can you think of any reason why you should not?

OK, don't click away, read on ...

So how can you help? We are always on the look out for volunteer crunchers. You can join the team by firstly downloading the software (it is available for both Windows and Linux). Having done that, the next step is to register yourself on their website and join "The PCReview Crew II" Couldn't be more simple!

If you don't wish to crunch, there are still things you can do to help. We have established a new initiative, where people can donate unwanted computer components to the team: Adopt-a-Rig. These components will be used to build more PCs, solely dedicated to crunching for the team. If you are interested in helping this very worthy cause, read more on this thread or contact Muckshifter

OK, yes, I admit it, I am blaintly plugging for you to join our team, but I leave it up to you. If you are a member of another forum, and you don't have a 'team', then why not start one ... it's as simply as pressing a few buttons.

I hope if nothing else, I have at least made you aware of the help one can do, even when playing a game.

You may vote for one or more project

I used to do something called "Mersenne Primes" which was something to do with increasingly large prime numbers *yawn*, but that was before I came across the medical based stuff with you guys (and ladies).

I never did understand that Mersenne project, but I did get a free application for running services so I guess it wasn't a total waste of time!

Flops, perhaps you can start WCG over here instead of those horrible sneaky peeps over at BBT...

Only joking BBT!
