I think the Astropulse banner is neat and would make a very cool bumper sticker, getting more volunteers I'm sure!

THe AP WUs have geen choking the disk that stores the active results. You still have to wait for your wingman to return their copy of the WU.

Click this link then click Edit SETI@home preferences. Under Run only the selected applications, un-check Astropulse. Then click Update preferences. You'll have to click Update in BOINC after that.

The benefit is that you are helping find ET in a different way, which requires a lot more computing power. Also, not only is AP looking for ET, but if it happens to find anything else of interest in the WU, SETI@Home can use that to show scientific progress in hopes of getting additional funding from the US Government.
