It's not BOINC, but it might catch the imagination of some people here.

Help needed to rescue UK's old rainfall records

At a loss to know what to do with your self-isolation time?

Well, why not get on the computer and help with a giant weather digitisation effort?

The UK has rainfall records dating back 200 years or so, but the vast majority of these are in handwritten form and can't easily be used to analyse past periods of flooding and drought.

The Rainfall Rescue Project is seeking volunteers to transfer all the data into online spreadsheets.

They started with the 1950s yesterday, and are well on their way to finishing them as I type - lots of very bored isolators out here.....
