It's amazing how many of us pioneers are still cranking away. 11 years in this industry is probably equivalent to the difference between my upbringing and my great-grandkids. And I'm not sure I want to go back to that era.

Does it count if you went away for, say, 6 years?

Not until the 23rd., it won't.....

Ok, time for bed, I fail to parse the grammer.

I'll rephrase:

Do you belong to the club by virtue of age (of the account, silly) or is it necessary to have been active all that time as well?

Happy SETI Birthday!

Welcome, Carola, to the 11 year club.

Amazes me.

Who knew 11 years ago that I'd still be doing this over a decade later?

Congrats on 11 years everyone. Good to see your still here.

Count me in as well. Still crunching/squishing through the haystack looking for the gold needle amongst the occasional brass ones.

Strange to think I started out on an Atari and am now trying to justify another quad core cruncher

I have to admit, I am also an old proud member of data crushing since 1999.
A little on and off from time to time. But still alive and well.

Still have my old rig from '98 standing standby. It were quick at the time.
Those were the days

So count me as part of the 11 years club as well

From 11 years ago when I actually just ran Seti@home as a screen saver!! To a high point of 10 machines. I scaled right back last year just leaving one machine to keep up appearances. I have recently restarted 2 machines full time.

I wonder how may of us will be here in another 11 years? To be fair I will 70!!

I am 75 and have been crunching SETI since 2004, and other 5 projects in following years. So don't despair.
