Those of you who know the email @ redacted project already know the idea 
behind "shared computing", but for those not familiar, there is this from the 
UD Cancer Research website:

"There is no cost to participate and no impact on your computer use. The 
project software cannot detect or transfer anything on your machine but 
project-specific information. It just allows your computer to screen 
molecules that may be developed into drugs to fight cancer. Each individual 
computer analyzes a few molecules and then sends the results back over 
the Internet for further research. The goal is to enlist enough volunteers to 
provide very rich and thorough results to the University of Oxford for further 
research. This project is anticipated to be the largest computational 
chemistry project ever undertaken and represents a genuine hope to find a 
better way to fight cancer. "
