Got CPU cycles to spare?
Donate! I'm a BOINC user, which is a program that lets you donate your spare computer time to various worthy projects as you see fit. One of my favorites is Predictor@Home, a project that gives out smallish work units and does important research for medicine. I'm also a member of a SETI project (not too many units there), a climate research project, and the World Community Grid, an organization put together by IBM that works on various problems in the physical sciences, usually medical related. All it costs you is power.
