Seems like a wonderful group with good intentions and their data center appears to be active and doing significant work in house.

I signed up for BOINC@TACC and have never gotten a WU as most users have never gotten a WU (this would be external work)

They somehow managed to overlook nanoHUB, which seems to be a similar operation, and was in operation a few months earlier.

They also are a clearinghouse in effect, drawing on work from a wide range of areas and researchers, though in the nano technology area.
(But everything is nano these days apparently).

They also require VirtualBox, have short run times and high write rates, and require a lot of memory while we are on the subject.
