February 26th, 2007: World Community Grid is a distributed computing project that gears itself towards things that can help people: protein folding, muscular dystrophy, fighting cancer and AIDS, and so on. It's like SETI@home, only instead of using your
spare CPU cycles looking for aliens, you're looking for ways to help people here on Earth! If you want the satisfaction of
using all your CPU cycles (a satisfaction that is subtle, nuanced, but real) then I would recommend World Community Grid - I've been a SETI guy for years but NO ALIENS YET, so FORGET THOSE GUYS (the aliens, I mean.) Also, you can run both if you want to! One year ago today: tom waits is another good story – Ryan
December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe. December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January. December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL. December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
