Oh, happy day. My SETI crunching has reached 3,000 completed work units.Seti 3,000 work unitsMy SETI experience started on a PII 400, which was acting as a Linux file server and firewall/router back in the day, then moved to its present home on Temeryx, my current file and database server. Temeryx is a G4/450, which has been sitting quietly in the corner under my desk munching on work units without any problems for several years.SETI has gone out of vogue a bit, what with other worthy causes competing for spare cycles, but being a huge Sci-Fi nerd, it’s near and dear to my heart.On this topic, if you have a box that sits on all day wasting cycles, please sign up for one of the projects out there and do something good for humanity with your otherwise unused processing power.Music: “The Thin Wall” by Ultravox [Opens in iTunes]
