Please allow this one mods.

this just means, while you CPU/comp is just sitting ,doing nothing it could be helping people find cures for all sorts of illnesses.

If you downlaod the clients, get on line and then just letit run in the background your CPU will in it's idle(low intensity) just do some calculations to benfit the researchers.

Normally they virtually "test" a canidate(a medicen canidate). but the computers to run these tests are either very expensive or very huge so this can benifit them.

as said in your low intensity moments your CPU will start doing calculations to see if the canidate is suitable for testing. So while your just surfing these boards your helping to find a cure for a dicease.

THIS WILL NOT PUT SPYWARE OR ANY OTHER THING ONTO YOUR COMPUTER
this software is written to help people,not cause you problems.

WARNING TO OVERCLOCKERS:
I also overclock my CPU sometimes but beware, if you computer is "GAME STABLE" it doesnt mean it's calculation stable, if you wanna test if your CPU when overclocked is stable, please run prime 95 for a few hours, if it doesn't give errors then you can use the overclocked sytem to do the calculations.
I'd hate to see a medicin slip though our fingers just because someones computer made an error somewhere.

the errord canidates are just discarded and checked by NO ONE. so be sure your CPU is stable and doesn't slip up, I specially clocked back my system and put my mem timings a bit looser then normal so that all will go well.

S! and happy grazing!

(grazing is the term used for these sorts of things)

Dear CommunityTSC Member!

Welcome back to a new an improved Version 2.0!

D2OL is based on Sengent's CommunityOS, a grid computing program that harnesses idle time on volunteer computers from the online community to create a supercomputer capable of using chemical docking algorithms and statistical models to rapidly test potential drugs to cure tuberous sclerosis complex. D2OL Version 2.0 was designed for increased stability and reliability of the client-server system; improved client-server communications; decreased bandwidth requirements and increased user capacity. Additionally, D2OL Version 2.0 will allow continued upgrade of this software without disruption of client usage.

I've been doing something similar for the past couple of years through United Devices. So even when I'm wasting time on the computer, it's not!

Yhea, it's been around for a while, it's called GRID computing or something.

it means you just connect PC's worldwide and make'm into one big supercomputer.

Say the average computer has 2200 Ghtz( 2200/ or P4 2.2)
And about.....

1 million nodes are conected(a node is a computer/client)

Say 50% of the CPU is used for the calculations. that would mean you have 1.1 MILLION Gigahertz thats.....
1100 TERRAHERTZ!!!!

serius computer folks.
Comone, donate some bandwith, it doesn't affect your upload because it only sends it findings when his tasks are completed and the "findinggs" or the report isn't big it'l like 300KB or something, thats a small image folks....

Help the needy, who knows one day you or your child may need this cure!
