Mapping While You Sleep

The BBC is looking to use thousands of computers to map climate changes.
People can volunteer the use of their computers when they are not using them to run a particular climate change model. Volunteers
have the option of displaying a climate change model globe as a screensaver. The BBC is looking to put about 10,000 computers to work on this experiment - currently they seem to be about half way there
- and will publish the results in the summer of 2006 on BBC4.
