Juno To Sell Off Your Excess Processing Power

Struggling net provider Juno said today that it has plans in the works to turn its network of home computers into a supercomputer for research institutions to borrow. Much like the way Seti@Home works, users will leave computers on 24-hours a day and institutions will be able to use your excess processor power and hard drive space to analyze data sent over the net. Juno reports that the new setup only activates when users are not at their computers, and that it should not slow anything while they are using it.
