The Rosetta@home Project

And now for something different to our usual news topics: At TshwaneDJe we donate 'spare CPU cycles' (*) to the Rosetta@home project (TshwaneDJe@Rosetta), and we would like to encourage others to also consider contributing (we are now the number three contributor in South Africa!) Rosetta@home is a volunteer-based distributed computing project that, in simple terms, could help cure diseases. Anyone can join and contribute, by running the software on their computer. Other similar projects include Folding@home.

(*) Effectively, a little bit of electricity, bandwidth, and spare time.
