        I don’t know how many of you are familiar with distributed computing, but a well-known project called Folding@Home is currently working on COVID-19, modeling the virus so better treatments can be made for it. The BOINC client is pretty easy to install, only runs when your computer is idle, and also makes for a neat screensaver.

        Obviously if you’re worried about security don’t put this on your work computer, I run it on my gaming PC in my living room.
