10 years today! 16 June 1999 - 16 June 2009.

Looking at my numbers since BOINC started, I can't help but think I've let the side down a bit. :(

There was a guy on a chat show here in the UK just now saying that sending this signal is a bad idea because the aliens might come and get us... :-s

The sooner the UK escapes from Europe the better. They promised us a vote and we didn't get one, why won't they give us the vote they promised? Because they know they will lose by a huge margin - that is not democracy.

Good job Ireland, I salute you!

In the mean time can anybody help me out with a Canadian or US passport? :D

Edit: a New Zealand or Australian passport would be cool too!

Hey Misfit! Yep, that's something I guess!

I had 26,060 hours SETI@home classic CPU time and I don't think I ever visited the original SETI classic forums.

I have fantastic memories of it though, when I first started on SETI@Home a work unit took my machine around 60 hours to process. SETI became the reason to upgrade my PC and I no longer judged new components by how well they increased gaming performance, but on how many minutes they could shave off of my crunch times.

Everything I know about upgrading and overclocking PC's is due to this project.

So I guess we have to wait a bit longer for this one. :-(

I see they are still begging for money.I still think its a scam.


Surely the Devs at Berkeley can tell us whether this is a real project or not?

It is kind of disappointing that they want to charge people, but I suppose they have to fund the operation some how.

Hopefully somebody will sponsor it. Where's Paul G. Allen when you need him?

You changed your name! Good think I was around for your pics and avatars or I would've missed it. :)


Yeah, I should probably change it back, I only did it for some cheap web hits, getting my ass kicked in the google rankings :-(

18) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Terror attack in London... (Message 136792)
Posted 3297 days ago by Profile 1202 Program Alarm
They just said on BBC that it was a suicide bomber. And since the IRA doesn't use suicide bombers, it was probly Al-Qaeda or associates.


Well, I've never heard of IRA attacking several targets in an coordinated efford like this, so I'd rule out IRA instantly. Besides, they don't really have any reason to attack at the moment - at least not big scale like this. And BTW as far as I know they always target military or police.

They way this has happened sounds more typical for Al-Qaeda and ass.



Posts like this one make me absolutely furious. Let’s take a look at some of the IRA’s targets:

1974: In the Birmingham Pub Bombings bombs in two pubs kill 19
1974: In December a bomb explodes on the first floor of Harrods department store in Knightsbridge

1975: The killing of businessman Ross McWhirter, who had offered reward money to people who informed on the IRA.

10 October 1981: a bomb blast on Ebury Bridge Road in London kills 2 people and injures 39

26 October 1981: a bomb explodes at a Wimpy Bar [a fast food restaurant] in Oxford Street London killing the bomb disposal officer trying to defuse it

1983: A Harrods department store bomb planted by the IRA during Christmas shopping season kills six

18 February 1991: A bomb explodes at Victoria Station. One man is killed and 38 people injured

28 February 1992: A bomb explodes at London Bridge railway station injuring 29 people

10 April 1992: A large bomb explodes in St Mary Axe in the City of London killing three people and injuring 91

12 October 1992: A device explodes in the gents' toilet of the Sussex Arms public house in Covent Garden

1993: Two IRA bombs at opposite ends of a shopping street in Warrington, timed to go off within minutes of each other, kill two children

1993: The PIRA detonates a huge truck bomb in the City of London at Bishopsgate, which kills two

10 February 1996: The IRA ends its 1994 cease-fire, killing two civilians in a bomb adjacent to the South Quay DLR station in London's Docklands.

18 February 1996: An improvised high explosive device detonates prematurely on a bus travelling along Aldwych in central London, killing Edward O'Brien, the IRA operative transporting the device and injuring eight others

15 June 1996: The IRA detonates a 3,300 lb (1,500 kg) bomb in Manchester, injuring 206 people

Were they military pubs that were blown up killing all those people? Was the Wimpy’s Burger restaurant some kind of secret police or military base? Were the 2 children killed in Warrington soldiers?

Please, don’t tell me that the IRA only target the police and military.

The B612 Foundation is an organisation that has been founded with the aim of significantly altering the orbit of an asteroid in a controlled manner by 2015. Check out their website here:

So what do you all think? Can this technology work?
