Did you all know that there's a "SETI@home (waiting for...) team on
www.distributed.net - the biggest distributed computing project around
at the moment. There's a bunch of us currently working on the default
project, trying to get the team up the charts and promote SETI and
SETI@home. The team's page is at...

http://rc5stats.distributed.net/cgi/tmsummary.idc?TM=221

...from there you should be able to go to the project's homepage and
download the client (software). It runs in the background in "idle
priority", like the prime numbers thing mentioned above, so it never
works to the exclusion of anything else. Instructions on how to
_join_ a team should be on the page of the URL above.

D.Net are currently solving many of the problems SETI@home is likely
to meet. By supporting them now, you will be indirectly helping the
SETI@home effort due to start next April.

It's interesting and fun, so if your machine isn't cruching cosmic
data every moment of it's uptime, you can participate in "The World's
Fastest Computer".

Yours,

Chris J.
