My top 10 reasons? Easy!

10.) Intel Core2 Q8200@2.33Ghz, CPU0
9.) ...and CPU1
8.) ...and CPU2
7.) ...and CPU3
6.) Intel Xeon W3505@2.53Ghz, CPU0
5.) ...and CPU1 - That's six cores total; CPUs that spend 80% of their time doing nothing!
4.) BOINC makes it sooo easy to use my spare cycles instead of wasting them as heat...
3.) ...to potentially make a difference for our world.
2.) If I can save at least one person from a debilitating disease...
1.) ...it'll be totally worth it.

Thanks for the opportunity to make a difference!
