SETI ain't boring

Submitted by Falken on
I wrote a while back ([node:12]) about giving up with the SETI at home project, but I never actually did, and as I have a few more CPU cycles spare these days, I've even started to help out with the distributed project - which should hopefully allow us to still be here long enough to hear an alien signal.
I still don't know why I wrote my previous article - finding a signal from a NTI would be the single most important moment in human history, finally we would know we were not alone (as opposed to it just being very very likely we're not alone). Reading Beyond Contact a few times helped a lot too.
You can keep an eye on progress on the [node:1382] page.
