Do you contribute with the computing power of your computer-smartphone-gameConsoles-networks to scientific research e.g. through BOINC or other distributed computing platforms? And in case, what projects do you choose to support and why?

I used to contribute to distributed.net when they ran their RC5-64 challenge. There weren't many other options in those days, and I wasn't interested in SETI or protein folding.

Years later, when I found myself with some serious CPU power, I contributed to their OGR effort, mainly because I was already familiar with their software. They still run an RC5-72 project, but that seemed pointless to me.
