As of today I have contributed 50 quadrillion floating point operations to searching for life amongst the cosmos.

I dont do distributed computing so Im not even sure why Im here but I had to comment on this...

There is a comedian that talks about this program, your helping send msg in space basically saying "hey were here, anyone out there? come visit", well if they come visit they are obviously smarter than us. He goes on about some other stuff but man Im tired and cant really think of it now.

Yes the human species is beaming thousands of radio waves into space every second. You got TV, radar, cell phones, WiFi networks all sending out a message saying "hey matter on this tiny dot has arisen to consciousness after 15 billion years of cosmic evolution." SETI@home is not sending anything. We are listening for patterns in the chaos that aren't local sources of RFI. This is a unique time our history. We have the technical know how to allow us to communicate with other intelligent forms of matter thousands of light years away.

Mmm...good job. I was thinking about doing this, but then I thought about it more and I guess folding core cures to cancer and other diseases comes first....just got 4 PC's up and running for folding again because a server had been down and I hadn't been able to get cores for a long time.

Could you answer something for me though? I have some older systems sitting around...in your opinion is SETI more umm...challenging for a PC than F@H? Or are they about the same and the resources are just used different? If older PC's work ok with this, I'd be ok with putting my two Pentium 2's working for this cause. They each take like....11 minutes a frame for folding so that's sort of pointless...

SETI tends to have smaller work units. Should be great for those old clunkers.
