People are going nuts, in a good way, with this sort of stuff on
sci.astro.amateur and to a lesser extent on the SETI Club at Yahoo (
http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/seti )

I'd personally like to see some hardware acceleration. I'd buy a USB
or PCMCIA DSP - My PC is an ultralight notebook - specifically for
SETI@home if it could significantly boost client performance...
