Watup.  Do any of you remember the SETI At Home project?  It goes back many years.  When your computer is idle, it makes use of your CPU to analyze radio signals from space recorded at the Aricebo Observatory.  They are hoping to detect radio signals from extraterrestrials.  I've been running it for a week or so on my machines here at the office, and I created a CoastGab SETI team which you can join here:

SETI at home is very cool.  if anyone ever thought that the search for extraterrestrial intelligence wouldn't produce anything useful then here's something that's very cool: distributed computing.  i love it

the software that runs the seti@home project can be used to participate in multiple other distributed computing projects... including the search for a cancer cure.

Yikes. The Linux client brought my laptop to its knees.

Blame the aliens if they would just show themselves we wouldn't have to analyze interstellar noise in the hope we can discern a repeatable pattern.

you need to make sure it's set to run only when the machine is idle.

Glad to find this - I did SETI@home several years ago.  I've downloaded it to an otherwise unused XP computer, so I'll run it 24/7.  Glad to find the team, but why aren't more of you clowns signed up?

After all, one of us might spot the space aliens, then we could be guests of sNoory. I plan to develop one word answers to all of his standard questions.

I had Seti at home on 2 mac's and one PC about 9-10 years ago. I looked to reset up a couple years ago but, if I remember, there was a charge to d/l the program... seemed a bit much to me to have to pay for the privilege to do them a favor.

There was no charge a couple of days ago when I downloaded.

I went to their site an hour or so ago. Seems it is free to download. My memory is that there was a donate to download option and nothing else. As hard as it is to believe I may be in error.

Well, even though I've had friends suggest I loan SETI a few teraflops every now and then, I finally decided to walk the walk. I installed the software on my "beast," as the latest incarnation can use co-processing utilizing my GPU (nVidia GeForce) with CUDA as well as my CPU. CPU mildly overclocked to 4.4GHz + GPU co-processing.

I've only had it running for about an hour working with the Arecibo Observatory radio telescope in Puerto Rico.

Stunningly, I have made contact!

Mordac needs a pop filter on his mic.  I guess they don't have embroidery hoops and panty hose on his planet.

BTW, I note that I am the only Coastgab member upholding the honor of the forum on SETI.  You weasels are lame.

I've been running SETI at Home on my computers since it started back in 1998 or whenever.  If you're not familiar with the software, it's basically a screensaver that runs a series of tests against data gathered from SETI research projects.  This has allowed SETI to analyze a huge amount of data in a relatively short period of time.   

Is there any interest in forming a Team BellGab to parse SETI at home data?

There's already a team coastgab.  I think I'm the only team member.

Add me to this list of SETI searchers. Going to start running BOINC tonite. I wasn't aware of these until now so thanks for the link. Very very cool stuff.

Maybe someone needs to design a bitcoin/SETI client and market them as house heaters.

Merge with the older thread that I posted in before?  Uhhhh I'm a little embarrassed that I created a new thread for this.  Clearly I need to go back and watch the BellGab orientation video again.

Pick up a few Raspberry pi/BeagleBlacks and piggy back them in to bitcoin mine and Seti simultaneously. That would be a nice little setup.

I dunno, I've been running as a loner for several years now.  I got lots of project points...  How does that work, will all my past work count towards the team or something?  The thing has changed a LOT since I started running it, and I really just install it on any 'fresh build' and let it do its thing...  I may even already be a member of my own team for all I know (a team of just me)...

Hmm, I think I should milk this a bit:  I seem to have 2,194,754 project points amassed over the years.  Perhaps I was to be 'made' unbannable or something I might consider it...
