Alternative Energy News Blog Celebrates!
distribution of users of the Folding at Home distributed computing project
The Alternative Energy News Blog celebrates surpassing one hundred subscribers to our syndicated feed today. You can find the link to our feed on the bottom right of the homepage entitled "RSS and Atom Site Feed".
In order to celebrate we're going off topic on this post. You may or may not be aware that your computer's processor isn't being used anywhere near its full capacity most of the time. This is therefore a waste of the resources which were put into its manufacture and the electricity which powers it.
Instead of this you can install a small program which makes use of your computer's processing power when you're not using it by performing calculations for non-profit medical and scientific research for Stanford University. There are currently over one million CPUs registered. I have personally been using the program for over two years with no problems.
You can find out more and download the program here:

If you do sign up I would appreciate it if you use my team number 39181 so I know you found out about the project through this blog (disclaimer: I receive no financial benefit for this).
Also if you have a blog I would ask that you encourage your readers to sign up.
