Welcome to the rabbit's hole. A blog on pulp.

ULYSSES USED BOINC.

ClimatePrediction is a program, which like SETI uses the Boinc software to predict the climate in 21st century. Distributed computing is quite a cool invention and we should honor the developers at Berkley for their work. At least, as long as no one forces us to participate…
But it’s really bullshit if your computer works on high speed at climate prediction or some search for nonexistent extra-terrestrial intelligence while you really have to hit the deadline.
Which was, what must have happened to some Italian since he looked in his process table and found boinc.exe at work, saving the world without his approval.
