This from WCG.

World Community Grid would like to thank you for helping us reach a significant milestone!

Many THANKS to YOU, and the rest of our wonderful volunteers at World Community Grid! Together, we have achieved a new milestone in our history by contributing more than 1 billion results!

The results that you, and the whole World Community Grid community, have "crunched" on your computers have been sent to research scientists around the world for analysis. They have advanced humanitarian causes such as researching treatments for AIDS, Muscular Dystrophy, different forms of Cancer, Schistosoma, Malaria, Leishmaniasis and more. Your results have also helped advance research which addresses environmental issues, including improving water quality, developing technologies to access to clean water, increasing ways to harness solar power, and improving world nutrition.
Please check out our recent News & Updates article for more information about this exciting milestone.
Only through your and the other World Community Grid volunteers' collective contribution have we been able to achieve this outstanding accomplishment. We are extremely grateful for your contribution. Without it, this compute power would not be available for the very important scientific research work that together we are helping to accelerate.
Thank you,
The World Community Grid Team

Makes me feel rather proud, having contributed to this.

Everyone ready for the next billion?

Yes it's a wonderful achievement when you think about it. It illustrates how every contribution, whether large or small, has significantly helped, to reduce the time it would otherwise have taken the scientists, researchers, etc., to reach this point in their researches.

Here's to the next billion :cheers: :D
