    I like that, I'll probably end up putting this as my signature to if I can. I don't think my signature will allow me to have anymore lines though.

    So, I think I'm set up right and on helping out. I have my OG Droid that does nothing all day. I use it as an alarm clock. Every CPU cycle counts, right.

    This is kind of related: Play to Cure: Genes in Space.

    Looks like it's the same sort of distributed computing approach, except it's apparently using your Gamers' Intuition to identify cancer data. Or something. I'm not exactly sure on how it all works, but I'll likely give it a play once I get off work.

    No worries :thumbup:. Bring on the questions - I tend to learn a lot of interesting things when I attempt to answer them, so we all win ;)

    Could you share screenshots of your Preferences, Projects, and Tasks tabs?

    I created my account and got the app downloaded will start computing once on wifi or else will set a data limit for it as i get very rarely wifi access :( so have to do this way only but will do contribute my tiny little part whatsoever i can. I am sorry if you people feel i am not contributing much :( but this is what the best i can do.

    The whole point of projects like this one is to combine lots of little contributions into something massive, so you're doing exactly what you're supposed to. Like Unforgiven said, every little bit helps :thumbup:

    Yes! You must think of it on a LARGE scale. There are MILLIONS of computers that are doing this. Every computer computes something small. With everyone contributing we can look at the big things and break it down. Otherwise it would take millions of years for one computer to do it all.


    it wont let me attach the Screenshot, but I've been Computing One project on my Note 10.1 for 170 hours thus far and its only at 71%
    IS this processor literally that weak these days? It runs everything else On here fine.

    No need for a team captain. We can all contribute equally.

    And about the GPU, you can't use the GPU as there aren't any project creators that have made use of the GPU since march 2013. I do hope that they will make use of it sometime.
