Can you help find a cure for Cancer

Recommended Posts


Hi,<p>I hope that you all had a good Christmas, and Boxing day.<p>As this is a quiet time of the year, when many of you are trying not to think about work, I am wondering if you would like to assist in giving something back to the community by using your computer to help find a cure for Cancer.<p>The spiel below, comes directly from the United Devices website, who are working with the University of Oxford to try and find a cure for Cancer.<p>At the bottom of the piece you will find a link to download the simple piece of software. It would also be great if you could join me in the UBBdev team - the second link will provide you with the ability to join the 'Non League Football' sub-team, which is part of the UBBDev Team - one of the top teams. If you choose a user name such as xxxx_non_league where xxxx is either your name or handle, we can easily recognise each other. We will keep you updated on the number of points that our sub-team has earnt.<p>By combining thousands of ordinary PCs to work on extremely large computational projects, problems can be solved more quickly and less expensively than by conventional methods. Now regular people can help fuel research and projects that previously may have required a bank of supercomputers or a hundred years to complete. The 'Volunteer Your PC' program lets you make a real difference without donating money or your time with the tool that you are using to view this email right now — your home PC. <p>In our 'Volunteer Your PC' program, your computer can join tens of thousands of other PCs across the Internet each working on a small part of a large problem simultaneously. You can help one or more public good projects. To participate, simply download a very small, non-invasive software program that works like a screensaver: it runs when your computer isn't being used, and processes projects — until you need the power. Your computer never leaves your desk, and the project never interrupts your usual PC use.<p>



Make A Difference

United Devices empowers individuals to do something more then just make a financial donation to a research foundation or charity. It allows you to truly participate and make a difference. <p> Use Cool Free Technology

United Devices Members are not only fuelling the next revolution in computing, they are involved in some of the most significant and cutting edge projects in the world. <p>



The download process is very easy. We provide prompts to guide you through completion. And once you download the UD Agent and have it running, you never have to think about it again — the software runs quietly in the background and updates itself. There is no cost to participate and no impact on your computer use. The United Devices software works only on our projects — it cannot detect or transfer anything on your machine. It can only process the project-related information.<p>Download Now!<p><p>Please choose a username ending in Non_League, so we can recognise you.<p>

Join the Non League Football sub-team, (part of the UBBdev team) here<p>Please feel free to reply to this message to let us know if you have joined up.<p>Please remember this is 100% optional, and is down to you to decide if you wish to sign up - but if you do, we will give all participants their own miniature icon against their user name.<p>Have a good New Year.<p>Admin<p>[ 26 December 2001: This message was edited by: admin ]</p>
