We're having a great start for the year 2012 and i want to boost it with small referral race.
Referral race is simple.
1. Crunch in our Boinc team and get at least one friend to join our Boinc team.
2. Soon as your friend is crunching regular(10 000 boinc points from cpu project and 100 000 boinc points from gpu project untill 29/02/2012) Ask your friend to email your nick and project to Akiles@windowslive.com and i will add one ticket from each friend to prize drawal. More friends to join, more tickets and better chances to win.
3. Main prize is NEW Battlefield 3 game download ticket and winner will be announced 29/02/2012.
Everyone can join and chance to win is good. I will add small prizes in the mix if i will receive more.
If you have any questions, please email Akiles@windowslive.com
You can join the team by searching team with "My efforts against childhood cancer".

Milkyway@home : Milkyway@Home uses the BOINC platform to harness volunteered computing resources, creating a highly accurate three dimensional model of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Cpu and AMD Gpus(AMD 4830 or better,5830 or better, 6950 or better)
World Community Grid : World Community Grid brings people together from across the globe to create the largest non-profit computing grid benefiting humanity. It does this by pooling surplus computer processing power. We believe that innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can help make the planet smarter. Our success depends on like-minded individuals - like you. Projects: GO Fight Against Malaria, Drug Search for Leishmaniasis, Computing for Clean Water, The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2, Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy - Phase2, Help Fight Childhood Cancer, Help Conquer Cancer, FightAIDS@Home, Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together - Phase 2
What is malariacontrol.net?The malariacontrol.net project is an application that makes use of network computing for stochastic modelling of the clinical epidemiology and natural history of Plasmodium falciparum malaria.
Simulation modeling of malariaThe fight against malaria was given a new impetus by the call for eradication at the Gates Malaria Forum in October 2007, making more but still limited resources available for research, development, and combating malaria. To inform decisions on which new or existing tools to prioritize, we have developed a general platform for comparing, fitting, and evaluating stochastic simulation models of Plasmodium falciparum malaria, programmed in C++ (openmalaria).
We use this to inform the target product profiles for novel interventions like vaccines, addressing questions such as minimal efficacy and duration of effects needed for a vaccine to be worthwhile, and also to optimize deployment of established interventions and integrated strategies. Field trials of interventions consider effects over 1-2 years at most, but the dynamics of immunity and human demography also lead to longer term effects. We consider many different outcomes, including transmission reduction or interruption, illness, hospitalization, or death, as well as economic aspects.
GPUGRID.net is a distributed computing infrastructure devoted to biomedical research. Thanks to the contribution of volunteers, GPUGRID scientists can perform molecular simulations to understand the function of proteins in health and disease. Projects: Cancer : Unveiling mechanisms of drug resistance and malfunctions in cell signalling pathways in Cancer. Hiv/Aids : Modelling the process of how HIV maturation first starts by simulating the activation of one of its key proteins: the protease. Neural disorders : Investigating features of neurologically important proteins that have thus far evaded traditional experimental techniques. Nvidia Gpus
