[IP] Help IP fight Cancer and More

There are 70+ members from the Insulin-Pumpers group who participate in a 
Distributed Computing project looking for answers to very complex medical 
problems.   Parts of the studies have been looking into Anthrax, Cancer and 
Smallpox.  If you are interested in using your computers "idle" time, go 
to: http://www.grid.org/download/gold/download.htm After downloading this 
1.566 mg program it can then be configured to run only when you are not 
actively using your computer.   Please then Join the Insulin Pumpers team 
by going to:




The IP Team also has a new area to chat about the projects and to get to 
know one another.  The message Board is located here:


As of 10-24-03 here's how we stack up against the thousands of teams on the 
above project:

Members                           70                       (Rank)   (# 386)
Total CPU Time(y:d:h:m:s)  66:350:04:45:41   (Rank)   (# 190)
Points Generated                7,713,329           (Rank)   (# 209)
Results Returned                48,915                (Rank)  (# 246)

All of the above is for Windows systems only.   If you are a Mac or Linux 
user the above project is not available to you.  But you aren't left out of 
this completely.   Instead contribute to a project called "Protein 
Folding"  This has similar basis as the Grid Project above in that 
analyzing one nanosecond of "folding" takes the equivalent of 30 years of 
computing.  Here is an explanation of what they are doing:


To download the program (3.25 mg for OS-X) go to this URL


The Team Number for Insulin Pumpers is  10838  which you will enter into 
the Configuration Preferences when you start the program.

Besides showing our generosity to each other, please join one of these Team 
Projects to show that Pumpers care for the World!    It only costs 
fractions of a cent to contribute spare processor time for what may be the 
cure for Cancer, Anthrax and even Diabetes!
