Joined. I've been a longtime WCG member - been off and on over the last few years. But now that I pay for my own electricity and cooling it's something I do off and on now and then. Most people I know are getting laptops vs big gaming desktops and are unwilling to run WCG anymore. Well, I still have my big gaming rig so figured I'd pump a few points in.

I've run Boinc on my Note 3 for awhile but it just gets a little too hot for my comfort - too bad you can't run the Note 3 without a battery (plugged in!) - also my desktop/laptop can churn quite a bit more results.

You can change the settings to stop running boinc when it reaches a certain temperature. Default is 40 c, however I change it to 35 c. If it's getting too hot you may want to change the settings.

My two Nexus tablets which are rarely used anymore (the screens and sensors on those things aren't good at all) are being used for boinc. Just to contribute something. It's a good cause for a device that is no longer being used.

My phone also while I'm sleeping. Wouldn't it be cool if these apps were built into the core operating system for every phone? IPhone, Android Windows doesn't matter. If all 2 billion smartphones in the world could do something like this all at once that's great.

Too bad Google or any other company would ever do anything like that ever.
