    Google Computer

    I thought I would be a nice time and let then use my computer when it was idle. When I try to check my stats though, It wont connect. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I would use it if Google told us exactly WHAT complex things we're helping to solve. I have four ancient beasts sitting at home I could put it on.

    The idea is pretty amazing. I'll install it to see what happens... Does it have the same technical concept as any spyware?

    You can turn it off by clicking on the DNA icon in the toolbar then Stop Computing. According to Google, the *only* thing your computer time will be used for is [email protected] unless and until they update their webpage. That's the only project it is set to spend any of your CPU time on, so no secret PageRank number crunching for Google.
