you probably need a fucking prem account for this shit award. no thanks
what? I don't understand if this is an internet game. Not going to install random program, needs screenshot of this "run".
QuoteBOINC lets you contribute computing power on your home PC to projects doing research in many scientific areas. You can contribute to a single project, or to any combination of them. To get started:

(afaik) you can join "groups" or "teams", whos contributed power is added and then listed in some ranking system. ESL gives away awards corresponding to the amount of power contributed in order to support it (afaik)

I still don't understand :$
Parent
they use ur computers capacity to count if there is UFOs
Parent
your computer is not at all times used to 100%. Thus theres this software that uses the not needed capacity and combines it with the ones of thousands/millions of other computers. By this the "science" can use the whole power to make complicated calculations, renders or whatsoever (dont ask me :>)
Parent
but in idle mode u have 100% :)
Parent
yes and bills will be higher nice one :-S
Parent
You can for example help to find extraterrestrial lifeforms.
