Ripped from the SETI@home Web Site:
"SETI@home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. There's a small but captivating possibility that your computer will detect the faint murmur of a civilization beyond Earth."
I ran SETI@Home from 1999 until early 2005. As of July 6, 2010, I started back up again and then quickly shut things back down due to high electric bill. I deleted old/no longer active members to keep the listing managable. If you are active, feel free to join my team.
Check my archive page for those old stats. This page will be 2010+ information
