  • SETI @ Home: Find Aliens using your computer.

    Anyone else have [email protected] screensaver?

    For those who don't know SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is an organization dedicated to the search of Extraterrestrial life. You may have seen members of their organization in the movies Contact and Independance Day. They do this by listening to radio transmissions from outer space and trying to determine whether they are natural or artificial. The amount of data that they collect is ENORMOUS and even with the worlds most powerfull supercomputers, it would take thousands of years to sift through it all. Then came the creation of [email protected]. [email protected] is a screensaver/program that runs on your computer when it is normally not being used. It uses these wasted clock cycles to analyze a data chunk that was sent from Seti. As soon as the analysis is complete, it sends the results back to Seti the next time your on the internet. Then Seti sends you a new Data "unit" to analyze. There are nearly 5 million people with [email protected] on their computers. The shear volume of computational power by the combined computers is astounding. All the combined supercomputers on Earth don't even come close to 5 million PC's. Anyway, [email protected] has been around for a few years and SETI itself has been around even longer. If you want to help find Aliens and you need a cool screensaver, then you should download it.

    one more thing, I have my Seti program set so it always runs even when im using the computer and I have an "always on" internet connection so it automatically sends and retrieves new "data units" when it needs to.

            Why not?

            Are you anti-Alien?

            If intelligent life forms from another world are discovered, It would be the single greatest discovery in human history.

                    What separates them (Raiders) from us (Chargers)

                    Answer: Championships.
