Help fight diseases with your computer

In this time of Covid19, we are all looking at ways to fight it. Whether it is by staying indoor, being an essential worker, etc... But for those of us that aren't any of that, there is still a way.

In this time of Covid19, we are all looking at ways to fight it. Whether it is by staying indoor, being an essential worker, etc... But for those of us that aren't any of that, there is still a way.

Do you have a computer or a server not utilize at 100% all the time? Then you could share its computing power to fight diseases. [email protected] is an open-source project that uses all the computing power of volunteers around the world to find cures for diseases. If you want to know more in detail, I encourage you to check out their website.

With your help, they can make it an even bigger supercomputer. Dozens of times more powerful than the best private supercomputer.

How to install ?

You have two options:

  • Mac, Windows, Linux: Install it through their website.
  • Linux: Use my script to easily install it.

Option 1:

Username: Input your name
Team: 0 for no team, if you'd like to join our team: 263124
Pass: Empty

It is then up to you to choose how much power you want to assign. It will not impact your computer performance as it only runs on the empty cycles of your CPU.

One Line Install [email protected]

For Linux-based distribution such as Debian, Ubuntu, etc.
