& Control Denied Fans United team returns!
Because we didn’t want our computer to be useless when
we’re not using it, we decided to form a new Death &
Control Denied Fans United team at the World Community Grid.

It’s powered by United Devices so it will be simple
to use for our former members. You have to uninstall your
United Devices Agent software and download

team (almost 80 years of computing time!) and we encourage
you to help us make a difference with this team as well! Thank

Grid.org: A Pioneering
Internet Grid Project 2000-2007 MISSION COMPLETE
On Friday, April 27, 2007,
Grid.org announced it has completed its mission to demonstrate
the viability and benefits of large-scale Internet-based grid
computing, and will be retiring its famous efforts to support
critical health research.
Grid.org was the largest
and most ambitious public interest grid venture ever attempted,
and thanks to Grid.org and its millions of members, dozens
of similar global grid projects have been able to catch on
and succeed by following its footsteps.
Thank you to all our members!
The excellent work Grid.org has done, both in contributing
massive compute power to critical health research and in establishing
this Internet-based model as beneficial, would not have been
possible without the faith, efforts, and support of our millions
of members worldwide. Thank you so much for your years of
Please support other
volunteer grid projects
We encourage members to
take your valuable resources to other projects of this kind
that are ready and willing to accept you as new members. [learn

It's easy to download (like ICQ or IM). It takes about 5 minutes.
It's easy to install, and registering is just to get yourself
a password. Once it's installed things run automatically.
When you're online you'll receive a task on which your computer
will work (whether or not you are on line). When the task
is completed it will be automatically sent to United Devices
the first time you're on line, and they will send you the
next task. Your computer won't slow down!

ABOUT UNITED DEVICES AGAINST CANCER
in four of us will at some time suffer from cancer. The high
mortality rate, the suffering experienced by patients from
the side effects of existing treatments, and the high costs
of treatment all contribute to making cancer a priority for
New Way to Help
landmark research project has begun that allows people to
make a real difference in the fight against cancer. This is
no regular donation request: a participant is never asked
to open a checkbook or volunteer time. The Intel-United Devices
Cancer Research Project is asking you to volunteer your PC
to help process molecular research being conducted by the
Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford in
England and the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
participate, you simply download a very small, no cost, non-invasive
software program that works like a screensaver: it runs when
your computer isn't being used, and processes research until
you need your machine. Your computer never leaves your desk,
and the project never interrupts your usual PC use.
Easy and Safe
is no cost to participate and no impact on your computer use.
The project software cannot detect or transfer anything on
your machine but project-specific information. It just allows
your computer to screen molecules that may be developed into
drugs to fight cancer. Each individual computer analyzes a
few molecules and then sends the results back over the Internet
for further research. The goal is to enlist enough volunteers
to contribute 24 million hours of computational time. This
project is anticipated to be the largest computational chemistry
project ever undertaken and represents a genuine hope to find
a better way to fight cancer.
computational power to perform research of this scale is only
available through the generosity of individuals like you.
