The difference between 0 and 1 is greater than the difference between 1 and 1,000,000

On a related note, I was recently watching the newest episode of LEVERAGE. It had to do with a sinister mechanical engineer who, among other things, had his own SETI-like project with the goal of first-contact. Long story short, the Leverage team first faked a similar WOW! signal to this douche, and he called it the WOAH! signal. Wonderful originality, there. :)

The first URL worked in my Firefox.

This URL should work also: http://www.seti-germany.de/Wow_2012.

Press the flag on the left for your language (deutsch/english/français).

The wow event site didn't seem to say what the event celebration was all about. Is it just to see who has the most SETI credits at the end of the time period? Are there different categories for older or new computers? (I'd like to entery the flyweight with my 2005 Presario) Will SETI have enough work units to feed this frenzy?

Okay, let me rephrase. What are the features offered by the German site? Is it just a credit volume accumulation? Could we have a sprint, distance run, disk throw, stargate hurdle and alien rescue?

It's a Race just for fun - to the memory of the discovery of the WOW signal.

You join your star sign or this you like - team, and this 12 teams fight against each other.

The star sign team with the most Credits win.

If you have questions, you could look on the SETI.Germany team site here - on the left is a small chat window, there you could write messages without to register.
