I'm here since about 6 months only and I'll not stop run SETI, even after decades.
Somebody probably said this but we're 150.000 and we never stop support you.

Thanks a lot for allow us to fullfill our dreams

I'm thankful for scientists that allow people who don't have the education or knowledge to still be a part of helping with this project.

Good morning, everyone:

I, like many other participants, will faithfully continue this research, doing my part as I have coming up on the the start of my twelfth year.

I challenge each participant to donate $ 5.00 USD per month as I am to continue the private funding of this important research.

Additionally, we need data from the southern hemisphere to scan and add to the effort in learning where a source of contact may lie.

This program is mostly likely to eventually produce the results that will acknowledge that there are other intelligence species in our galaxy.

So, thank you, all my fellow participants and let us keep up the work toward ouir eventual successs.


Sincerely,


Robert T. Turner

I heard of SETI@home few years ago but I'm present here since 6 mounths, 2 weeks and 4 days.
It's definitely the biggest scientifical project accessibled to all EVER.
The project wouldn't continue to exist if we didn't take part to SETI@home.
I took part, we took part, I continue the adventure and we continue the adventure too ;-) .
Best regards from FRANCE !!!

I cannot believe this site is down again. I don't know who's minding the store but he, she, they should be fired. I remember Seti when.....

From Handsome Harry to all Happy Thanksgiving! Used to think I had to much computing power! Like who needs 4 computers in a house of two? Glad I found SETI and can put all that power to GOOD use. Just about a week and I really have had no problems except CPU usage over runs but setting the usage to 95% stopped the start/stop on two of the computers. I think i have improved the amount of completed conversion by not haveing the 20 sec. no running tasks every 30 seconds or so. Hope I make at least 5 Million next year. Happyn SETI'ing!

Seti funding is so low that all the staff are basically part timers and have been exceptional over the years.
If the problems really annoy you that much,then donate to help the project or better yet organize a fund raiser seti party's can be fun or a garage sale maybe, doing speaks louder than coplaning.

Its nice to be appreciated. Remember that every unit that completes is successful. It give a result and tells us what is or isn't there. The more units processed, the better our statistics are and the more sure we can be of what that statistic shows. Over time we can be more and more confident that there is very little up there for intelligent life if any. In the unlikely event that we detect something, it will be good to know that. If we never detect anything, it will also be good to know that.

Personally I like the fact that we've been processing for more than a decade with no positive results. Therefore, I choose negative. That conclusion tells us that we need to get cracking and make our own aliens by getting out there in space, spread out, loose track of each other, and fill the universe with (more or less) intelligent life. It will take <<million years for us to populate this galaxy alone which is nothing in astronomical terms.

Enough of science fiction with its goofy aliens and flying saucers. We need real science with real space ships and real advancement for life in this universe. Expanding into space is to watching old sci-fi TV shows as genuine reproductive sex with one's lifelong spouse is to [you know what to put here].

Close that comic book and open a science book. (if you are brave enough) - It will be a much more interesting story and the special effects are infinitely more real.

Clear Skies!!

Spaceward Ho!!

I'm thankful not only for the opportunity to help in the search, but to everyone in the lab, who's modus operandi is to go above and beyond their normal duties practically every day including days off.

Cheers folks.

We're thankful for you, our volunteers, who continue to donate your time, computers and money to keep SETI@home up and running and improving.


Thanks to you Eric, I'll always be arround trying to be of some help, not by being in your seat doing your job, but I will be in my home giving the 24/7 of my server and workstation for the project!!!
