At the CGT conference last week the concept of "GAP @ Home" was thrown 
out there sort of as a joke, but I'm wondering if that might actually be 
I'm curious to know if anyone here has heard of BOINC.  I forget what 
the acronym stands for, but it's a meta-client through Berkeley for SETI 
and other programs like it, including one that searches for big primes.

I know at least for the prime programs, you don't even need GUI to set 
it up.  It would be cool if people could make their processor available 
for some of these enormous group theoretic calculations that would be 
impossible on a single machine.
