Bioinformaticians looking for some free cluster time?

Though this is not directly linked to bioinformatics, any high-performance researchers out there who are twiddling their fingers waiting for their scripts to complete might find this new resource very useful.

MacResearch.org has just introduced OpenMacGrid. It is a distributed computing grid similar to SETI@home, but unlike other networks, it is built up entirely of Macs utilizing Xgrid, and access is unrestricted. Anyone with Mac OS X 10.4 can donate cycles, and any scientist with a reasonable project can burn cycles.

For those of us in western Canada (ok, maybe I am one of the few on this board), there is also westgrid. Though I am guessing that westgrid is a bit harder to get time on.
