Probably would be useless I guess. But I want to help out anyway I can.

Sorry, your machine has even <128 MB.
Propose, you first install blender 2.45 on your Windows ME.
If it works, try simple scenes, like cube & sphere, for yourself.
Then you try some simple animations.
Now you can think on a relatively simple scene with a very very long but interesting animation in relatively low resolution and submit it to BURP.
I give you my spendable credit when you need it.
Afterwards you will hopefully get some work.

There are occasionally sessions that come along using 128 MB of RAM or sometimes even 64, but they are pretty rare. If you really want to participate, you should look into getting some more RAM; a stick of 128 is probably about $5 these days.

Blender wouldn\'t run on Windows Me the last time I looked. There\'s an old thread about that somewhere. Feel free to revive it, I\'ve still got a Me box myself. (Windows Me isn\'t that bad! I\'d prefer it to Vista any time if it was still supported.)

You could probably run XP then, although 128 MB is the minimum required--although I\'ve got it running on a 233MHz laptop with 96 MB of RAM. I wouldn\'t recommend this; it runs and does basic stuff ok, but is pretty slow for anything else.

Unfortunately, the WUs from that session were quickly snatched up!

Blender works perfectly fine on my Windows ME by the way, I guess I should wait a while for another chance? Thanks for the replies.

Just turn on BOINC, if there is work for you, you get it.
