13 years later, World Community Grid is still around, and you can STILL help the world.
Jahntassa Vidren began Team GenVibe at World Community Grid about 13 years ago.
Since then, members of GenVibe have contributed over 40 YEARS of processing power to the effort.
GenVibe is still listed among the top 2000 teams by contribution. At one time, about 20 of us on GenVibe were signed up to contribute our unused processor cycles to this worldwide computing crowdsourcing project. According to their online Team profile, 14 are still listed as members.
I was a Grid contributor from 2004 to early 2010, but when I moved, I didn't have a persistent internet connection at the time, so I stopped contributing.
Last summer, I received an email from World Community Grid informing me that I hadn't posted any results in about 7 years! Didn't realize that it had been that long! I downloaded the current BOINC app, and began contributing once again.
So if you have a computer that can be connected to the internet, is powered-on most of the time, yet seldom used, you can donate some of that unused capacity to the World Community Grid projects of your choice, by downloading and installing the free BOINC program for your operating system.
BOINC can also take advantage of GPU processing power.
The BOINC app is easily configured to schedule how much of your available computing capacity you want to provide by # of cores and # of utilization, which hours processing may occur, when to suspend BOINC if mouse & keyboard are in use, and so on.
