Fight AIDS with your PC

You may have heard of SETI@home, a distributed computing project that allowed people over the world to let their computer use its spare processing cycles to help analyse radio signals from deep space in the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). Now there’s a similar project that’s working on something a bit more practical: finding a treatment for HIV/AIDS.

It’s very easy to download and install and does research into genes and an illness that is killing millions around the world.

Download it from here
(Currently Windows and Linux only. No plans for the Mac have been mentioned.)

Once you’re set up you can click this link:

and join the Matazone team so we can see how we’re doing together!

  1. Dam AIDS all the way to hell, this is a good program available above and everyone should pull together to help solve one of lifes biggest issues. Of course I could go on as much as the next person about how bad HIV is but it really is as bad as the media make it out to be.

  2. I’ve downloaded it. Although my contribution isn’t going to help much, due to my cruddy computer… it will help a little, and that’s what’s important.
