I stumbled on Grid Republic today! [link] Its a pretty neat concept. You can volunteer your excess computing power by joining the computing grid for various worthy projects. Amazingly the process to get started is very simple. Just enter your name, email address and pick a password. On the next step you pick the project [...]
