Any of you participate in it?

I've been running [email protected] for about a month now.

    Use your cycles for good. Try [email protected]
    I'm not a complete idiot... some parts are missing.

    I do grid.org because it gets me free gigs at EasyNews :)

    I tried both of those, they stink. I know everyone says they only use unused cycles, but no matter what, every time I run them, my system either freezes, or slows down. Nothing else effects the computer like those @home proggies. Although I suppose [email protected] does do for a good cause, btu I'm still not doing it.

    the grid.org one runs fine for me, I can play Everquest 2 and World of Warcraft with it running in the background and not experience any performance hits. Hell, Symantec AV eats more resources than grid's cycle grinder

    I can do anything and still run [email protected] as well. It seems to scale really well.

    I am.

    I've seen this argument go both ways.

    Will running your CPU at 100% load like this wear it out any sooner? Even if it will, how does that time compare to the year and a half or so before processor speeds will double?

    For example...I don't really care if my processor will wear out a year sooner due to the load I put on it. I don't consider individual pc parts to be much of a long term investment anyway.
