Welcome


Welcome to the POZ/AIDSmeds Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

I think this is a great way of using untapped computing power to perform
research that tries to answer some very complex questions and potentially
solve some very complex problems that are health-related.  Medical
and life sciences research does take an enormous amount of computing
power, and the fact is that most of the time your personal computer is
sitting there idle.  Why not put your unused computing power to good use?

I've been a member of the World Community Grid since its inception.
In my experience, it does not interfere with normal operation of my
PC.  You have control over when it runs (e.g., only when the screensaver
pops up) and how much disk space it uses, type of network connection.
I've never known it to be a bandwidth hog.

FULL DISCLOSURE:  I am a proud employee of of one of the sponsors of
World Community Grid -- IBM!  The opinions expressed here are mine alone,
and not those of IBM.

Please check out the World Community Grid web site, and consider running
it on your personal computer.  The following link explains more about how the
grid works:

I'd be willing to setup a Team for the AIDSmeds Community Forum members,
if our moderators do not have any objections.  The Grid tracks "points" on an
individual and team basis, so you can see your contributions to the WCG research
projects.

Any questions?  Check out the WCG web site, or feel free to send me a message!

Cheers,

Henry
