Stanford University needs super powerful computers to do it's research. Since there are no such computers in the world that are powerful enough, they split up the research into packets called work units. They send these units to people who have agreed to let Stanford use their computers 'thinking' power to do the research. There is a program that you can download that accepts these work units, it runs in the background and completes the research using the 'thinking' power you are not using, and then sends the research back to stanford once it's done. Then the cycle starts all over again.

all your computer has to do is run the program while it is on. Ever once and awhile you have to connect to the internet to download and upload work units.

Go to the website, you can read the fine details, but mainly it's just helping the university develop cures for protein diseases. And all it takes is to DL the program and run it while your computer is on. There is also a competition going, with teams. Team overclock.net was in 500th place and gaining last time I checked. When you install the program it asks you for a team number, put in 37726 and presto, you will be a proud member of team overclock.net

Come to think of it, that would be friggin awesome! Having the car wirelessly do its thing while sitting in the garage overnight...(of course you'd have to unplug your car in the morning to go to work...)
LOLOL not if its wireless lol
