"Boinc" (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) is a program that allows you to help with many scientific projects around the world. All you need is your computer, Internet connection and the freeware program BOINC. But, how does it work? Boinc software uses the time when your are not using PC at all, and then it processes scientific information from the project you already chose. With this, you are helping to scientific investigations in many areas like, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, etc. So, it means that when you install Boinc program on your PC, this one will be part of a global network, and it will start to generate calculations that will retrieve and send through your Internet connection. And this will be done only the time when your computer is inactive, I mean, when the Bionic screensaver is activated or when the program detects you haven't moved your mouse for a while and there's no activity on you CPU after a determinated period. (all these settings can be configured as you desire).

Can you imagine thousands of resources that are wasted by your computer when is not active? Now you have the opportunity to use them in something worth, helping to scientific investigations around the world, so don't wait anymore and download Boinc software now.

Guest BOINC is the way by which to participate in the work being done by the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence "SETI" group centred at Berkeley University in California in the United States of America. using the Aracibo Dish Antenna in Pueto Rico signals from space are collected. These signals are then analysised using the BOINC software on your home or office computer. This analysis work does not interfere with the normal running of you computer. BOINC collects fresh projects automatedly from the main computer at Berkeley. I am using BOINC to participate in the world famous SETI projects. However there are several other type of science project that BOINC is able to connect to.
