Beer is Civilization.

So, your computer is sitting there, idle, doing nothing but wasting power. What if you could take those spare CPU cycles and do something useful with them? Rather than crack codes or search for extraterrestrial life, you could join thousands of others and help track down the elusive Yeti using this special software...

From the YETI@Home web site:

YETI@Home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the search for giant ape-like creatures (YETI). We, the YETI team members who founded this experiment, are experts in the field of cryptozoology (the study of animals that do not exist).

You can participate in this historic study by running a free program that downloads and analyzes video & sound captured from your very own backyard. There's a small but captivating possibility that your computer will detect the faint footsteps of a hairy monster.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
