At Sky-Skan we have strict guidelines about the use of antivirus software on our systems, but the idling of many planetariums offers our clients a unique opportunity to contribute their unused DigitalSky computing power to the cause of the day, a use we enthusiastically endorse.

Sky-Skan clients interested in finding out whether their DigitalSky computers can be used in this effort should contact
