    Is anybody here currently running UD software on their machines? 

    Any impressions? - Good, bad, or indifferent?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    United Devices is a software application which links a computer to a grid, and operates ins the background (or as a screensaver) analysing chunks of data - the best-known UD operation is probably SETI, but it is also used for such projects as cancer research or defence against biochemical warfare.

    My PC is currently linked to a cancer research project; having only read supportive literature (ie written by organisations apt to benefit) I don't really know if there are any pitfalls to linking to such a grid. I was just looking to see if anyone here could give some more feedback (good and bad).

    Well, if you're talking [email protected]'m running that.

    When I run it all the time (not just in screensaver mode) it tends to slow my computer down a bit and I usually have to reboot my PC once a night because it just gets sooooo slow. (I havea Pentium 3 at work.)

    But it doesn't do that on my parent's Pentium 4 at home where I can run it all the time without a problem.
