What is World Community Grid? (From the WCG website)
World Community Grid's mission is to create the world's largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity.

Our work has developed the technical infrastructure that serves as the grid's foundation for scientific research. Our success depends upon individuals collectively contributing their unused computer time to change the world for the better.

World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not-for-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid. As part of our commitment to advancing human welfare, all results will be in the public domain and made public to the global research community.

Ok, there's already a pair locationless cache for this... why another one?
The purpose of this Locationless is to keep it going. This one is designed for those that are willing to spend a LOT of time and computer power to the project.

AngryKid posted the original World Community Grid Locationless a few years ago, requiring a paltry 25 results returned before logging. This has resulted in a total of 58 people (as of this posting) out of the thousands of TC participants signing up and attempting to log it. Several made it to 25 returns, then maybe a little more, and stopped participating. Only a few hardy souls (and their computers) have kept on participating.

Requirements to log:
1. Log WCG (aka How to Fold a Protein) LCHU
2. Log WCG II (Keep it going) LCR2
2. Continue participating for an extended period. Accumulate at least two of the following three stats:
- OVER ONE Year total run time
- 300,000 points
- 1150 results returned
3. Keep going! There may be a WCG IV locationless in the future, plus you get to keep contributing to the health of humankind. All results from WCG calculations are in the public domain.
