Thank you to the 100+ users who helped test, there are many improvements to come.

Testing of BOINC on Android has commenced.  Due to the diversity of devices the developers are looking for testers with their devices (ultrabooks, phones, tablets, etc).  A Google Group for coordinating testing is organized and instructions how to join the testing are listed in the group.

For World AIDS Day 2012 ( #WAD2012 ) the World Community Grid is hosting their third annual FightAIDS@Home live webcast with Dr. Alex Perryman of the Scripps Research Institute.

Dr. Perryman will talk about the progress that the FightAIDS@Home research team has made over the past year.  This includes their work in identifying compounds that can inhibit the progression of HIV infection.  This could not be done without volunteer computing participants.

Join the webcast a few minutes early to make sure everything is working.  This is not a hangout...  join the webcast at https://apps.lotuslive.com/meetings/join?id=0327108

FightAIDS@home is a project on the World Community Grid powered by BOINC

Happy 8th Birthday, World Community Grid! 8 years of advancing humanitarian research!
