Yesterday evening Team Bravo reached the grand total of

that we have reached this goal so quickly is a*mazing
affirming what a determined bunch of crunchers we are!
each and every one of you.

On such a special occasion, I am even more pleased to

new teammate and one of the great loves of my life,

Team Bravo is part of the World Community Grid, where collectively people across the world are donating their unused computer time for scientific research on a range of projects that potentially will benefit us all. The WCG enables us to take advantage of the extraordinary opportunity to help without actually doing anything. Sound too good to be true? Okay, admittedly there is a catch. To be a part requires a few minutes of time. Three or four to complete the registration process and a minute more to join the team. After that all that is left to do is watch your scores rise and know that with each result returned, you have been a part of a collective step towards changing the world for the better.

3 years 197 days

That is how much run time Team Bravo has accumulated in the less than 4 months since it was started.

(pause for effect)

And when one considers that members have been joining along the way, as recent as just 2 days ago - A Big Bravo Welcome to Newest Team Member Grace aka SweetJaine - it accentuates just what an amazingly dedicated team of crunchers Bravo is.

(pause for effect, some more) :-)

Which all in all adds up to an amazing Team Total of 939,436 points and 4,714 results!
At it's current rate, Bravo will be able to celebrate reaching a grand total of 1,000,000 points by the middle of next week! Even sooner, if anyone reading this decides they might like to participate. For a quick overview of what the Grid is all about and how you can be a part of it, watch this short video.
By joining the World Community Grid , there is a very real potential to make a very real difference, and all that will ever be required is a few minutes of set-up time. From then on out, whenever your computer is idle, it will be working on projects such as the current Help Cure Muscular Dysthrophy, Genome Comparison, Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2 and FightAids@Home using the ultra-safe software freely available from the WCG.
To be a part of the team, first register, download and install and then come join us here.
