I donated twice this year but they don't appear on my stats page. Both in response to emails received.

I thought I might post my first here too. Funny enough, if you want to call it that, I started receiving new work units at around last midnight UTC, so 22 hours or so ago. Well done, working that hard on a weekend! There are still some intermittent logs of the server not being available, but al in all, I have meanwhile received quite a few more. True, the vast majority of them very short ones, but at least there is again some Seti stuff to crunch.

While it didn´t happen, my CPUs have been dealing with some Einstein and Milkyway WUs; there´s always someone happy somewhere.

Can`t really afford to donate money, but I am quite happy to be able to perform calculations on my computer. Thank YOU, for allowing me to participate in the search for technological life on other planets.

I do hope that someday, we do win the prize we are seking - even if it`s just some commercial ad from some alien TV station. May one of us find the magic signal, soon.

And Greets to my teammates in The Assimilators.

Thanks to you to give us this GREAT opportunity!

One word: awesome!

One question: is there a possibility to listen to the sound from Space, starting these our elaborations?

Thanks.

Like many I have been on the program, a few years now.
As a Pensioner I can not afford to donate cash.
But time cost me nothing.
As a games player my Computer is on 18 hours a day, so the Program is all ways running, not just in down time.
There is life out there, we have just got to find it.
Keep up the good work.

I'm with SETI@home since '99. I just realized that most of the guys helping now were just babies by then or not even born! That's beautiful!


[Translated by google:] It's great to see more people of our beautiful country here (let's stop this foreign thought that Brazil is just ass, carnival and samba ¬ ¬) ... Better yet is to see that several nations unite when they find a common purpose, it is delightful to see the comments supporting even when the server is constantly fluctuating, it does not happen on other servers (where everyone complains about everything).

Onward volunteers!! Since only one race, one nation, united by a single goal, to discover the truth!

--------------------------------------------------------------
[Original text:] É muito bom ver mais pessoas do nosso lindo país por aqui(temos de tirar esse pensamento estrangeiro de que Brasil é só bunda, carnaval e samba ¬¬)... Melhor ainda é ver que várias nações se unem quando encontram um propósito em comum, é prazeroso ver os comentários apoiando mesmo quando o servidor está oscilando constantemente, isso não acontece em outros servidores(onde todos reclamam de tudo).

Avante voluntários! Como apenas uma raça, uma nação, unida por um só objetivo, descobrir a verdade!

I wonder, if any of the users actually find an extraterrestrial broadcast, would he or she be notified? ;)

My understanding is that if a work unit's results come back indicating a possible legitimate signal, the guys in the lab will look at it and probably send it out to a couple more users for confirmation. Then they will run it themselves in the lab. Then they will take a wider look at all the related data (same date/time, same part of the sky, etc.). Then they will send their findings out to other Seti projects around the world to see if they agree with the analysis and if they have data of their own that can confirm (or deny) the signal. All this checking and rechecking and rigorous scientific review will take months if not years. If, after all that, they decide it really is a legitimate signal, the university will call a big press conference to announce it. The people whose computers were the first to crunch the data and raise the "possible signal" flag will be invited to participate in the press conference and will get their 15 of fame as "the person who discovered ET."

[Also, at some point the U.S. and several other governments will probably stick their noses in to determine whether there's a national (or global) security risk. They would probably classify it as super-duper ultra-top secret and kill the press conference.]
