"Last week, LookSmart released a screensaver that harnesses the spare computing power of volunteers whose machines are indexing the Web."
"Like [email protected], LookSmart's Grub screensaver runs in the background or when the computer is idle. But instead of searching for signs of intelligent aliens, Grub crawls the Net to build an index for Web searches."
"In a matter of days, the number of people running Grub jumped from less than 100 to more than 1,000. As of Wednesday, the system was crawling more than 26 million Web pages, according to the site's Web page." (from Wired)
