I'll drop my 2 cents worth on the SETI@Home software and then quietly slip
out the back door. By far one of the most inefficient processes I've ever
had the pleasure to run a profile trace against. The graphics are
beautiful but the processing time required to reduce just 200K of data are
excessive. Not bad for a first cut, only time will tell.

Respectfully,
