Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $150USD is a freaking steal!

I will see what I can dig up.

Approaching the quarter million mark for SETI.

Not too shabby for using one crappy laptop at a time.

Wow has it been 12 years already?

Imagine how far away from Earth a spacecraft would be now if it were travelling at the speed of light...

Congratulations to everyone who has participated in this project with special kudos to the 12 year veterans! ;)

100k for Seti at last. Now I can clam it up until 250k. Rejoyce!

ps - working on a dual 6 core desktop similar to the one i saw with 8 nvidia cards...i wonder if 8 cores will ever be feasible.

Just broke 75k couple days ago. I have already started crunching at 50% due to the warm weather. I don't have any air conditioning so I must save my machine some undue stress for the next 5 months.

Congrats to everyone with their massive amounts of work done! I saw a machine with dual hex cores in it with 8 gpu cards. Now that is a true workhorse! This puny laptop doesn't do much but it's still helping listen to the stars...

Approaching 50k after a long hiatus. I'm back in the saddle!

One thing I miss is seeing the graphics. Alas the only downfall to using the 64-bit Windows 7.
